The aptly named River House sits right on the Dart Estuary in Devon and has been so cleverly designed there is a glass floor in the master bedroom that looks down on the water[/caption]

Its main living areas have floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors and glass Juliet balconies to give the property a feel of Venice rather than Devon.

The five bedroom house was built by the current owners into the banks of the river a decade ago, with the main living rooms on the upper floor and the bedrooms below.

It has its own boat-lifting equipment, steps down to the foreshore and mooring on the river.

It is accessed at street level by a single doorway to a lift shaft that leads down to the living areas.

Interestingly, the asking price for River House includes a nearby town house that is owned by the same vendors.

The owners live in the riverside property and rent out the two bedroom home.

Sarah-Jane Bingham-Chick of Savills, said: “The main house is right on the waterfront and is an award winning, architecturally designed contemporary property.

“The master bedroom suite, which is located on the lower ground floor, has a full width Juliet balcony with bi-fold doors and a glass floor overlooking the fore shore.

“There are three further bedrooms on this level.

“On the level above there is a magnificent domed open plan living space, with wall to wall doors and a Juliet balcony overlooking the water.

“The current owners have lived in the River House for at least 10 years and have rented out the other, but still have used the garage.


“Dartmouth is in a valley and the town centre is one the level but most of the parking and garaging is further out of town.

Dartmouth, which is home to the Britannia Royal Naval College, is considered one of the prettiest estuary towns in Europe and sits in the South Hams and South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The town’s deep-water port attracts sailing vessels from all over the world and its three well-known marinas offer first class sailing facilities.
