Huddled on the east bank of the River Dart, the quintessentially quaint South Hams village of Kingswear, peppered with pretty houses and cosy pubs, offers visitors an exclusive holiday destination in one of Devon's loveliest waterside villages.

Set right opposite Dart Haven Marina and just an amble from the Royal Dart Yacht Club, this beautiful period property with its elegant architecture and fantastic roof terrace is wonderfully positioned within the village, sporting oodles of sumptuous space as well as staggering river views from each of its immaculate floors.

Four sublime bedrooms provide sleeping for up to eight guests with every room featuring deeply comfortable beds and their own unique perspective of the river, while upstairs the open plan kitchen and dining room creates the perfect place to prepare and share delicious home cooked meals together. Thoughtfully designed to maximise every inch of its riverside position, this room is also furnished with two lovely sofas where guests can enjoy post-supper relaxation and an evening drink or two while taking in the magnificent views of the that stretch from the river mouth across to Dartmouth's Royal Naval College and on.

At the very top of the house lies a luxurious living room with two sets of balcony doors opening out on to a fabulous roof terrace. Architecturally re-imagined the space incorporates the building’s original roof lines to create a light-filled and contemporary space that’s as inviting as it is inspiring. Curvaceous arches and deep reveals compliment tasteful furnishings that include pieces by renowned furniture designer Robert Maskrey, with a huge sinkable sofa and oak accents adding an inviting warmth to the room’s atmosphere.

Within a short drive of Broadsands Beach, Brixham Harbour and the leafy lanes at Churston where its acclaimed golf course offers 18 scenic holes of play, the house is also a mere ferry hop from Dartmouth and the spectacular South Hams coastline making it a wonderful base from which to discover and explore this beautiful corner of Devon
