The chance has arisen to build a remarkeable waterside house with its own moorings

Build a house in Dartmouth, on the most beautiful estuary in Europe

Approached along a secluded pathway, this is an opportunity to build an outstanding three-bedroom waterside house in Dartmouth, one of the loveliest towns in the south west. Halftide House is to be a new property built on the waterside point between Warfleet Creek and the River Dart, on the site of La Crevette, Ravensbury Drive.

The plans show a reverse-level detached house of around 2000sq ft with three ground floor bedrooms and two bathrooms, a shower room and a spectacular open-plan reception on the first floor with an impressive full-width south-facing balcony. Reverse living allows owners to make the most of the water views from the reception rooms, and this balcony will allow for far-reaching water views and would be an excellent space for entertaining.

The new house is built on a reverse living plan, with the reception rooms above the bedrooms

There is also permission for a new slipway. The property includes two licensed running moorings, one of which will enable boarding directly from the property at high tide.

The old house as it currently stands, comes with a summerhouse and extra land for parking

The pretty riverside walk into town, with its boutiques, shops and restaurants, is less than half a mile.

Dartmouth is located within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the South Hams. Totnes (12 miles) offers a main line rail link to London Paddington (3 hours). There is extremely good sailing, walking and horse riding in the local area, which is one of the most sought-after locations in the South West of England.

The property also comes with a derelict summerhouse and a good garden shed with power, lighting and workbench.

Additional land is included in the title for La Crevette, and provides parking for two or three vehicles. The approved proposed plans can be viewed at www.southhams.gov.uk, reference number 15/2388/14/F.

The guide price is £750,000. Contact Savills  (01392 455 700; http://countrylife.onthemarket.com)
