About this property

  • White Cottage is a classically proportioned detached period residence standing in mature gardens. From its elevated position there are wonderful views particularly from the two top floor bedrooms with their full width picture windows.

    The property retains many period features including decorative cornicing, original fireplaces, wood panelling, and painted floorboards. A conservatory on the front of the property leads to the front door and into the wide entrance hall. The living and dining rooms both have original fireplaces and full height bay windows allowing plenty of light into the rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the dining room has a tiled floor, a large tiled chimney recess with space for a range style cooker, white gloss cupboards and pan drawers and solid wood worktops. Across the rear lobby is a utility room with space for a fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble drier.

    On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with sash windows, a fourth room is currently used as a study. The bath/ shower room is fitted with a rainwater head above the panelled bath, but there is also an adjacent separate shower room. On the second floor two further lovely double bedrooms enjoy glorious River Dart views. The bathroom on this floor features a panelled bath, separate shower cubicle with rainwater shower head, wc and basin with floor to ceiling mirror behind.

    Outside a sloping and stepped path with wrought iron railing leads up to the front of the property through mature, almost ‘tropical' gardens planted with bamboo, phormium, bay and magnolia. There is an area of lawn in front of the conservatory and to the side is a paved terrace with dwarf wall which is perfectly situated to make the most of the views. Steps lead up to a series of terraced beds. Behind the property is a further paved terrace with a wooden balustrade. The garden above is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs and backs onto woodland.

Once upon a time I rented this house and I was very happy living there. Swannaton Road is without doubt one of the loveliest lanes to live in
