About this property

  • Stoke Cliff is is a beautiful period building which we believe dates from the early 1900s and was converted into three apartments in 1977. Flat 1, occupies the ground floor and as such has retained the stunning entrance hall with original parquet floor and the adjoining stone terrace. The apartment, which has been lived in by the current owners for ten years, has been well maintained and is beautifully presented. Works have included damp proofing, re wiring and both internal and external decoration. This elegant home offers a spacious kitchen / dining area which is well appointed with a central island with inset sink and dishwasher, an electric cooker, built in microwave, fridge and freezer. The living room is gorgeous with exposed wooden floorboards, open fire and second triple bay with sash windows. The main bedroom is bright and spacious with double doors leading to the terrace and an en suite shower room. The guest bedroom is again bright and spacious with double aspect. The study / bunk bedroom is a useful additional space, although please note there are no windows in this room. The bathroom offers both walk in shower and bath.

    Outside, the private terrace is paved and enclosed with stone walling and shrub borders and offers glorious views of the River Dart and across to Kingswear. There is dedicated parking for one vehicle.

    The freehold is owned by the management company which is made up of the three apartment owners and there is a clause stating no holiday lets may be permitted.

This is one of my most favourite apartments in Dartmouth. I have known it for many years and it never fails to impress! It's on the level, with parking and a lovely terrace. What more could you ask for?

Local information

  • 1 Stoke Cliff is well positioned at the bottom of Swannaton Road, a single track lane which winds uphill away from the hustle and bustle of the town. With the likes of the Dyer's Hill and Gallants Bower, both National Trust owned woods nearby, 1 Stoke Cliff has wonderful countryside walks on its doorstep. Swannaton Road lies on the east-facing bank of the Dart Estuary and is a short stroll from Dartmouth's waterfront, shops and restaurants. The town's deep-water port attracts sailing vessels from all over the world and is considered to be one of the prettiest in Europe. Dartmouth lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within the district known as the South Hams. The nearby town of Totnes (12 miles) offers a main line rail link to London Paddington (3 hours) and the A38 (18 Miles) provides access to the cities of Plymouth, Exeter and the M5 beyond.
