Revelarc is a beautifully positioned property on the River Yealm in Devon which was converted into flats in the 1950s. The house now has lots of potential to become a family property, or for holiday lets, and retained as flats.

Most of the ground floor has oak-beamed ceilings and many of the rooms have good wooden floors, leaded windows and brick fireplaces. Flights of stairs exist at both ends of the house, which could make conversion to a house with an annexe relatively simple. Accommodation as it stands is made up of a reception hall, three sitting rooms, three kitchens, six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Outside there are gardens of around half-an acre. The rear garden has a lawn, mature flowerbeds and a plum tree, rose bushes and two greenhouses. The front garden has direct access via steps to 200ft of river frontage and two private moorings. There is also a summerhouse on the lawn to the front of the house. Three garages can accommodate two cars each.

Revelarc is situated in the south Devon village of Newton Ferrers, which has some of the most desirable waterfront property in the area. There are many deep water moorings nearby and the village is a bustling Devon hub. Plymouth is ten miles and Totnes 22 miles.

The guide price is £1.3m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 423 111 or visity www.knightfrank.co.uk.
