Spindlewood is a holiday home in Dittisham with a large newly extended balcony with glass balustrade along the front of the house perfect for sitting and enjoying the river views. Located on Higher Street at the top of the village Spindlewood was built to take advantage of the stunning view looking across Dittisham Mill Creek and up the river valley towards Dartmoor. The front of the property has plenty of private parking and space for a boat/trailer. At the rear of the house is a grassy garden and sun trap paved area.

 

Accommodation: A flight of steps lead up from the driveway to the front door, entrance into spacious hall with plenty of coat hanging and storage area. The lounge/dining room extends along the front of the house with an open fire, large TV and DVD, oak dining table and chairs. This is a lovely bright room with two sets of glass doors leading onto the glass fronted balcony. Off the dining area is a door and hatch to the kitchen with cream shaker style units, beech work surfaces, electric oven, ceramic hob with stainless steel chimney hood,  dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave and view of the river. Back door to garden and balcony.

 

There are three bedrooms – the master bedroom has a king size bed and patio doors to the garden, the second bedroom has a double bed and the third is a twin, both overlook the back garden also. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, heated towel rail, toilet and basin.  A separate shower room with toilet and basin, heated towel rail.

 

Outside: As well as the impressive balcony across the front of the property there is a large grassy back garden, slightly sloped it wouldn’t make for a fair game of football however there is plenty of room for children to blow off steam. There is also a sun trap patio at the rear of the property.

 

Travel cot and high chair are available.
