About this property

  • Temeraire sits in one of the finest vantage points of the River Dart Estuary, offering exceptional views both up and down the river. This elegant detached Edwardian house was built in 1910 and offers well-proportioned rooms, all beautifully presented. The sitting room offers an exceptional floor to ceiling bay window which captures the view in its entirety, whilst the dining room offers a similar view, also from a bay window but with the addition of a window seat. The kitchen is fitted with free standing units and complimented with a long pantry / wine cellar and utility room with double doors leading to the wrap around terrace. The first floor offers a master bedroom with en suite shower room, 3 further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and further shower room. Both bedrooms to the front offer magnificent views of the river through bay windows and the bedroom to the rear has tri-fold doors leading to a private terrace, again with views upriver.
    In addition to the house is a self-contained studio with a shower room and independent access.

    The gardens are delightful feature of Temeraire, with steps rising from Swannaton Road to a full width front terrace offering uninterrupted panoramic views and a well-established rockery garden. To the rear is a large decked terrace with an impressive ‘rambling rector' rose covered balustrade and a primrose filled orchard beyond with an abundance of wild daffodils and spring bulbs. Beyond the rear boundary, the grounds known as Dyer's Woods are National Trust owned and offer 11 acres of woodland walks.

Oh my goodness me... the view from Temeraire will really take your breath away! The house is real gem too.

Local information

  • Temeraire is situated at the lower end of Swannaton Road, a single track lane that winds its way 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, Temeraire 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.

Additional information

  • Short walk to Dartmouth town centre Blackpool Sands beach about 3 miles Totnes (mainline rail-link to London) about 12 miles
  • Directions: From the centre of town, keep the ‘Boatfloat' on your right and continue along The Embankment, turning right into Hauley Road (signposted Dartmouth Castle). At the junction, proceed straight over into Newcomen Road, which in turn becomes South Town. Swannaton Road is about ½ mile along and is the last turning on the right hand side before the main road descends towards Warfleet. The entrance to Temeraire is on the right.
