A conservatory overlooks the garden of the six-bedroom property in Devon, which offers direct access to a sailing club and private beach
This is the view that awaits the buyer of the £10million property in Devon, which comes complete with 79 acres of land, offering a secluded waterside escape
There is also a triple garage and workshop, a large barn and a three-bedroom cottage in the grounds. The house has mature gardens, a croquet lawn, a boules court and tennis court with a pavilion.
The rest of the 79 acres is mostly woodland, but it also has its own private beach. Sarah-Jane Bingham-Chick, from Savills, said: ‘This property takes your breath away. It sits on its own peninsula in the River Dart, which is extremely unique.
‘The property has evolved over the years, the house now does not bear any resemblance to the building that was there hundreds of years ago and the farmland was predominantly arable.

‘Now a lot of woodland conservation has gone on down there. This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the finest houses in south Devon.
‘We’ve had a lot of enquiries already because even if somebody is not looking for a house, this is the sort of estate that prompts a call. It could be an idyllic retirement property or a good lifestyle change property – it has a solid income stream as well.
‘The current owners have rented out the cottage for holiday lets and there’s an area of lawn at the beginning of the drive that they have rented out for weddings.
‘It’s just a spectacular location for a wedding, but it doesn’t interfere at all with the house. It’s in the village of Dittisham, which is a really popular area, one of the most attractive and unspoilt villages in Devon.
‘It’s ideal for outdoor enthusiasts – it’s got a tennis court, boules court and croquet lawn and there is room for a swimming pool if the new owners wanted to put one in. It’s also got two slipways and a jetty so you can go straight onto the water. It ticks all the boxes.’
