6 + 7 School Steps, Dartmouth

Sleeps 5

With stunning views from the living room and private garden as well as private on site parking 6+7 School Steps has the key elements for a fabulous self catering holiday in Dartmouth year round. A short walk from the river Dart and the town centre this reverse level holiday home suits families or couples looking to enjoy this beautiful riverside town or the wider South Hams.

The front door opens from the parking area to a small landing with a few steps down to the open plan living area. The kitchen is well equipped with electric oven and gas hob as well as dishwasher fridge and microwave. At the rear of the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer as well as stairs down to the bedrooms, bathroom and garden. In front of the kitchen area there is the dining table with comfortable seating for 6 as well as the living area with log burner and sofas along with TV and additional window seating to take advantage of the unrestricted views out towards the mouth of the river and towards Kingswear. Separating the dining area and lounge area is a second staircase down to the ground floor.

 

The stairs from the kitchen take you down to a hallway with access to the garden immediately in front, the family bathroom to the right and master bedroom to the left. The family bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, toilet and basin. The master bedroom has a standard double bed. The single bedroom can either be accessed via the master bedroom or via the second staircase in the living area and has a 3′ bed. The third bedroom is at the very front of the property and benefits from excellent views via the dual aspect windows in the corner, this room is accessed via the second staircase.

 

Outside there is a covered patio area with built in BBQ and garden furniture as well as a small grassy lawn that truly makes the most of the views. The garden is beautifully presented with mature shrubs and climbing plants.

“The views over the River Dart from this house are just amazing. The light constantly changes, so it’s never the same twice. Our kids loved this upside down house: front door in the roof and their bedrooms 2 flights of stairs down. It’s very handy for walking into Dartmouth town (if you don’t mind the steps back up): lots of lovely shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants to visit.” Andrew – May 2019
