12 College View was built in the mid 1800's and was originally named Prospect Terrace. Once the Dartmouth Naval College was built in the early 1900's, Prospect Terrace was renamed to College View. Everything about this cottage is engaging. It starts from the access off the banjo. A small gate leads you along a pathway where the steps meander up to the property. On entering the living room you are instantly drawn to the stunning view over the Dart towards the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth. This room is a cosy space with steps up to the kitchen with another breath taking view. Stairs lead to the first floor where you will find the family bathroom which is a good size and bedroom two, both benefitting from views across and up the River Dart.
Stairs lead to the second floor hallway which has access to a courtyard and utility. Further stairs then lead into the rear extension (extended 2015) via a split landing. This room is currently used as a dining room and second sitting room and is very light with several velux windows allowing plenty of light. French doors lead onto a rear patio area. From the split landing to the front there are two double bedrooms both with views across and up the River Dart. There is a useful cloakroom on this level too. The master bedroom is sizeable and has a window to the rear overlooking the courtyard.
Outside there are three separate garden areas. Front lower terrace benefitting from an extended balcony enjoying a magnificent view point across and up the River Dart towards the Royal Naval College - particularly special in the morning and evening. The central courtyard has a Mediterranean feel which is a perfect quiet space to read. The rear patio is a great space to entertain and has direct access from the living area. There is a useful summer house for storage and would make a nice studio.
This property is being offered for sale for the first time in 32 years and has been a home for the current owner for all of that time. A true 'hidden gem' in a stunning village.
