Unique luxury property on the River Dart for sale

Vipers Quay    is a modern stone property constructed in the early 1960s, although there has been a boat house on the site since the 1800s; the whole house was engineered to make the most of the wonderful river views the principal rooms enjoy over the River Dart.

Currently the accommodation is spread over a single floor with a spacious reception hall housing a glass atrium and a pair of French doors leading out to the garden. From here is an en suite guest bedroom and a further bedroom; the master bedroom suite has fantastic views across the river towards Dittisham. There are two further bedrooms which share a family bathroom – each has access to the garden. The house has a large open plan dining room with a stone fireplace and panoramic river views.

Outside to the south eastern side of the property there is a sheltered area of lawn with a barbecue which also enjoys good views over the river and from here a spiral staircase leads to the roof terrace which enjoys even more impressive river views as well as great vistas over the surrounding countryside. There is also a further grass area above the building which would be perfect for a tennis court, subject to permissions. From here a pathway leads through a section

of woodland and along the riverbank towards the house.
