A super luxury restored 1956 American Airstream Caravan with a large outside private deck which comfortably accommodates two adults. The outside area boasts a dining-table and chairs with parasol, barbecue, loungers, a double hammock, outdoor chess and outdoor football table and an indulgent outdoor Japanese wood-fired spa bath.
Located within a secluded private woodland setting with lovely far reaching views to Dartmoor. The ambience is truly romantic with only the sound of the stream and the birds.
"They're so cool" seems to be the universal reaction to seeing the distinctive, highly polished, curvy Airstreams. And cool Airstream 1234 certainly is. Gleaming inside and out, it's tucked into a quiet corner of stunning rolling south Devon countryside - just a mile from the riverside village of Dittisham and within easy reach of delightful Dartmouth. Inside, the furnishings are totally in-keeping, retaining the retro feel but ensuring that all mod-cons, and we mean all, are provided - TV, sound system, WiFi, combination oven, induction hob, fridge, dishwasher, power shower, proper flushing toilet and even under-floor heating and air conditioning.
Built in 1956, Airstream 1234 is a 'Sovereign of the Road' model and epitomises the style of Wally Byam, the founder of Airstream trailers. Owned by a member of Wally Byam's Caravanners Club, the original stickers from a 1961 Omaha, Nebraska meeting are still on the windows.
There are burnt orange leather seats in the sitting-area and a table that can seat up to four and can be moved around for having dinner, or a drink or cup of tea whilst watching the TV. The bedroom is gorgeous, with lovely Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and lots of retro fittings that are so in-keeping. Clever use of space means that all the kitchen appliances are on-hand but tucked away neatly behind shiny walnut finish doors.
The shower-room is compact, but the hot water is on-tap and the shower itself is oh so powerful. In the winter this is a cosy retreat with under-floor heating and comfortable seating and in the summer you will no doubt want to explore the lovely grounds, watch the wild birds on the patio whilst having an early morning coffee, relax in the hammock or admire the iridescent flashing wings of numerous dragon flies and butterflies who put on rather a splendid show.
There is also access to a private storage cabin with washing machine/drier.
This part of south Devon is renowned for some glorious beaches - try Blackpool Sands just six miles away or Dartmouth with its fascinating proud naval history as well as some great restaurants and stylish shops. Greenway, Agatha Christie's restored home, is close by and well worth a visit (we advise you book in advance).
Boat hire is available locally, as well as stand up paddle boards and kayaks, and with wonderful walks from your doorstep there is so much to see and do in this area, with the added benefit of returning to the iconic Airstream 1234 at the end of the day.
