Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Mission House is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed Georgian home situated in the most historic location in Dartmouth: Bayard's Cove.
This iconic waterside area has been described as one of the finest quays in the world dating back to 1665, with a cobbled street and a mixture of 17th, 18th and 19th century buildings.

Bayards Cove is steeped in rich maritime history. Bearscove Castle (locally known as Bayards Fort) at the end of the quay was built in the early 1500s offering a line of defence to protect the town. In 1620, the Mayflower and Speedwell resided here before sailing across the Atlantic Ocean to the new world of America. During World War II the area was heavily involved in water-based campaigns including the D-day landings and Operation Tiger.

The Mission House, formerly named The Seamen's Institute (around 1860) has stood on this site since around the 1700s. Alterations during the 18th century were made to create a delightful Georgian property with many period features of this era. Renovated over the past 20 years by the current owner, The Mission House offers superb accommodation with stunning views across the River Dart to Kingswear and out to sea, framed by Dartmouth Castle.

Period features throughout the property including 9 ft high ceilings, ornate coving, a beautiful staircase and sash windows with shutters.
To meet today's modern needs, the property has underfloor heating and a secondary radiator system, oak flooring, integrated TV / audio network, security alarm and Cat 5 cabling.

Adjoining the property is a beautifully renovated 2-bedroom mews cottage, completely self-contained with a balcony enjoying wonderful views, an ideal holiday let or staff accommodation.
There is a private courtyard garden connecting the main house and cottage.

The property benefits from a superb double garage with storeroom above, ideal for a boat, kayaks or paddleboards thanks to a useful winch system. It is very rare for waterfront properties in town to have such spacious storage only a stone's throw from the front door.

The Mission House is on a level walk into the heart of Dartmouth, offering a range of shops and facilities, fine dining and water-based facilities, right on the doorstep.
