About this property

  • Little Ravenswell is a delightful period house currently configured to provide a spacious and bright four bedroom family home with an adjoining 1 bedroom apartment. If reverted to one property, the accommodation could comprise 6 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms and ample living accommodation. The apartment's entrance is off Beacon Road, providing a level access and offering single storey accommodation comprising a kitchen, sitting room, double bedroom and bathroom. Spectacular river and sea views are on offer from the sitting room and bedroom. The main house is accessed via a flight of shared steps which in turn lead to a private gated courtyard and secondary front door. This level comprises a kitchen / breakfast room, dining room and drawing room with ornate fireplace and 3 pairs of French windows which all open onto the south facing terrace and again offer wonderful waterside views. Stone steps descend from the kitchen to the garden level which comprises a cellar and workshop, a shower room, cloakroom and the garden room, a wonderful area in which to entertain with built in bar and two pairs of French doors leading to the level lawn. Stairs rise from the drawing room to a pretty galleried landing off which are 3 bedrooms, an en suite to the master and an additional bathroom. A fourth bedroom is approached up a small flight of stairs, which also provides integral access to the garage.

    The gardens and terrace are simply stunning, being beautifully presented and offering breath-taking views across the river to Dartmouth Castle and out to sea. The stone walled garden is level and lawned and offers gated access to the public steps, which in turn descend directly into the water. There is a running mooring (subject to a DHA licence) attached to the sea wall.
