Elegant Grade II listed Georgian house with superb River Dart views, beautifully presented interior and stunning gardens.
Whiteknights is a beautiful Grade II listed, double fronted Georgian town house which we believe dates from about 1780. In 2014, the property was the subject of a major renovation project and now offers immaculately presented accommodation arranged over three floors with many period features preserved. The central hallway is typical of Georgian design with a beautiful staircase rising to the upper floors and flanked by both the drawing room and the dining room, two well-proportioned reception rooms with large sash windows overlooking the water, feature fireplaces and moulded coving. The contemporary need of open plan living has been sympathetically designed ensuring the dining room and kitchen blend seamlessly together making this wonderfully spacious and bright room perfect for entertaining. The bespoke kitchen has been designed and fitted by Distinctly Living and offers a beautiful range of units under marble work tops, a central circular island, electric twin plated range set within a large recess, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. From the central hall, a door leads to the rear courtyard and storage for bikes, paddleboards and kayaks etc.
The first floor offers a large landing with wall to wall storage cupboards, a second living room, again with fabulous views and a feature fireplace, a large bedroom and a bathroom with roll top bath and walk in rain shower. The Georgian staircase rises to the second floor, where there are a further two large double bedrooms, a fourth bedroom with beautifully built in bunks, a second well-appointed bathroom with roll top bath and walk in shower and a utility room. From the utility room, a door leads to the rear gardens and terraces.
The gardens are a stunning feature of Whiteknights, being landscaped and designed over three levels. The lower level is a full width terrace bordered with stone walling and mature shrub beds, the middle terrace is a level lawn with mature hedgerows and superb views and the upper level is again a lawned garden with an extended deck with glass balustrade, providing the most perfect al fresco dinning terrace with the River Dart and out to sea as the backdrop. There is a shared pedestrian access to Above Town from the garden.
