Paradise Point has the distinction of being built on the site of the former Paradise Fort, which was positioned on a bend of the river with far-reaching views north up the river towards Dartmouth and east towards Dartmouth and Kingswear Castles.

The house is Grade II listed and is typical of the period with impressive reception rooms filled with light, elegant high ceilings and sash windows that capture the beautiful river and countryside views.

The house has been the much-loved home of its current owners for the past 14 years and their desire to return the house to its former glory shows in the care that has been taken in its renovation. This reflects the property’s heritage and creates a stylish and stunningly presented family home.

A path leads down to a private modern jetty and much sought after mooring that stretches out into the river. Wrapped around two sides of the house is a delightful formal garden incorporating a pristine lawn and terraces which offer ample space for family and guests to enjoy. An attractive lower garden is filled with an array of flourishing shrubs and cascades down to the shore-front and jetty. Savills Exeter (01392 455717,
