About this property

  • Occupying an elevated, south facing position, Falaise is a substantial detached home in one of the most sought after locations in the South West.

    Currently, the generous accommodation is arranged over three floors and is designed to maximise the incredible views over the mouth of the River Dart and Dartmouth Castle.

    The entrance hall is located on the lower ground floor with stairs up to the ground floor living accommodation which can also be accessed from the sun terrace. The ground floor offers wonderful flexibility, space and natural light. All of the rooms either have full height windows or sliding doors to the balcony to maximise the exquisite views.

    The well equipped kitchen is integrated with a range of NEFF appliances including a double oven, electric hob and dishwasher. There is also a pantry and adjacent utility/boot room. The kitchen is open plan to the breakfast room which is the perfect spot for morning coffee while taking in the view and the sliding doors to the sun terrace really brings the outside, in.

    The “wow” factor can clearly be attributed to the sitting room with its feature fireplace and full width, full height windows. The vista from here is exquisite and the glazed door to the balcony ensures you can also enjoy the views while breathing in the sea air.

    Beyond the main sitting room there is a dining room, a second sitting room both of which have sliding doors to the balcony. There is also a double, ensuite bedroom and kitchenette/utility and as there is an additional external access, this area could be sectioned off to create a self-contained unit.
    There is also a family bathroom on this floor.

    Stairs rise to the first floor which offers a fabulous principal bedroom suite with built in wardrobes and sliding doors to the balcony. A generous en suite provides a shower room and separate bathroom.

    Beyond this, there are a further two double bedrooms, one of which is en suite as well as a family bathroom. Again, external access from this floor provides access to the rear garden.

    Whilst currently set up as one main residence, there is planning permission to convert Falaise into 3 separate, one bedroom apartments with commercial holiday use. https://southhams.planning-register.co.uk/Planning/Display/3515/22/FUL

    Gardens and Grounds
    Sitting in a generous plot of just over 0.5 acres, Falaise has huge scope to further enhance the current landscaping.

    Much work has been done to enhance the driveway which leads to a turntable maximizing the turning and parking.

    Continuing this project offers a unique opportunity to create some wonderful outside space from which to enjoy the stunning views that Falaise offers.

Possibly one of the best views of the mouth of the River Dart and Dartmouth Castle that I have seen. Simply stunning
