River House – Dartmouth
October 17, 2011 § 3 Comments
Located right next to the River Dart, Dartmouth, this modern country home is a beautiful place to go for a short break. It features six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a hot tub and private swimming pool. Perfect for a large family! The house is designed in such a way that the majority of rooms have sloping ceilings, similar to that of a loft. The house is full of stunning ‘country-home’ features such as exposed wooden beams and oak skirting throughout. (Click images to enlarge).
The exterior of this house has a slight Mediterranean look about it with the tropical style plants and the lovely paved area. I love the timer frames on the outside of the property. The whole house looks especially great lit up in the evening.
The main living area in this home is a very warm and relaxing looking space. The wooden beams in this room look amazing, and I love the fireplace and the way it extrudes into the room.
The living area is connected to the dining area, shown below. I love the large square table. The floor to ceiling windows throughout this space are a great way to bring plenty of natural light in.
This is the kitchen. It’s a lovely bright room and I think the island in the centre is a great feature. I love the white cupboards and the general colour scheme of the room.
All six bedrooms in this home are beautifully decorated in quite similar styles, with white walls and ceilings and light flooring. So I’ll only show you a couple of these rooms. This first room is my favourite of them all. I love the sloping roof with the original wood, and the country style door. There’s also a small access door/window beside the bed to a decking area outside.
This is another of the double rooms. This room is especially spacious, and I love the many windows bringing in lots of natural light. I really like the fact the bed is on a slightly raising level, creating a slight separation from the seating area and the sleeping area.
Here are a couple of the bathrooms in this property. I love this first one with the unique bath with sides that reach the wall. It looks great and is a handy place to put your towel, magazines, laptop, wine…
This bathroom is also very nicely designed, with lots of earthy colours. I love the wood above the windows.
So here are the amazing swimming pool and hot tub areas. The pool is in a beautifully bright and airy part of the house. The room itself will be warm but the great big windows help you feel close to the outdoors. I love the design of this room, with the high ceiling helping to give the room a more spacious look.
The hot tub is situated in a great place, so you get astounding views of the river and surrounding area. This would be a great place to sit and relax at the end of a long day.
