Baytree House is a beautiful family home situated in the heart of Kingswear village. With stunning views over the River Dart to picturesque Dartmouth, Britannia Royal Naval College and upstream, this substantial semi-detached property would make an ideal base on the South West coast or as a permanent residence in an active community.

Baytree House also boasts a large outside terrace and garden, ideal for entertaining and enjoying the extensive river views. The property also offers an annex, store and single garage.

Baytree House is situated in Kingswear, a village on the east bank of the River Dart in one of the most beautiful estuaries in the South West. The brightly coloured houses of picturesque Kingswear overlook the Marina and fishing quay whilst the nostalgic sounds of the Dartmouth Steam Railway resonate along the Dart valley during summer months. Within the village there is a village store selling local and organic produce, a post office, church, primary school and several inns and a cafe. A short ferry trip across the river enables easy access to the ancient port of Dartmouth with its shops and fine restaurants. The village has an excellent year round community and offers a range of activities and societies to suit most tastes. For the enthusiastic yachtsman there is Darthaven Marina and the Royal Dart Yacht Club which offers full sailing and social programmes. Glorious unspoilt beaches on National Trust land are close by and the Southwest coastal path runs through the village.
