The Old Library description

LOCATION Set at the end of Newcomen Road and within just a very short, mostly level, walk of the historic naval town of Dartmouth. There are a number of award-winning restaurants, delightful boutiques, art galleries, cosy cafes and beautiful gardens within easy reach, as well as a range of lovely boat trips up and down the delightful River Dart from the nearby harbour front.
ENTRANCE Two steps lead up from the arched doorway into a ground floor spacious hallway with rich wooden flooring, soft lighting and partially mirrored ceiling. A UTILITY ROOM accessed directly from the hallway houses a Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer.
BEDROOMS Three beautifully furnished boutique bedrooms on the ground floor, all imaginatively decorated and with luxurious deep pile carpet. The master bedroom has a sumptuous kingsize bed, bedside chest tables with designer lamps, a small dressing table and stool, armchair, hanging and storage space, DAB/FM radio/iPod dock, and wall-mounted Smart TV. A glazed French door opens into a Juliet balcony overlooking nearby Lower Street. The elegant, contemporary en suite has a large walk-in shower (with overhead ceiling mounted and hand-held showers), wedge-shaped basin, w.c and heated towel rail. The second double bedroom is very similarly presented and furnished but shares a shower room with the adjacent single room. This creatively designed room - with a younger child in mind has a small cabin bed, hanging and shelving space, iPod dock and wall-mounted TV. N.B. All duvets, pillows, high quality Egyptian cotton bed linen, bath and hand towels are supplied.
SHOWER ROOMS In addition to the en suite above is a fully tiled family shower room on the ground floor with walk-in shower, wash-hand basin, w.c. and heated towel rail.
'THE CAPTAINS GALLEY' Wooden stairs spiral up to the open plan living accommodation on the first floor. This spacious and elegant area has a nautical mood (hence the title!) and offers a wonderful environment for relaxing or entertaining. The central island with smooth granite worktop is cleverly constructed to include a large Miele induction hob (with hidden extraction), sink, integrated dishwasher and breakfast bar (with two stools) - the galley kitchen is completed by a range of hand-made wall-to-floor units with integrated Miele combination oven, steam oven and fridge/freezer. The dining area has a large round table (with matching granite top), an elegant semi-circle of comfortable padded seating as well as metal stools. Finally the sitting room has a double sofa, two designer armchairs, coffee table, freestanding iPod speakers, widescreen TV, DVD player and SMEG fire.
