A beautiful Grade II listed waterfront home in the village of Lympstone in Exmouth is up for sale, and it boasts the most magnificent views.

Noted for its 'intriguing Georgian crenelated architecture', Belvedere stands in a majestic elevated position above the Exe Estuary on the south coast of Devon.

Accessed via a private drive and protected by around 13 acres of grounds, the oldest part of this house dates from the 17th century, and today stands as an ideal family home with plenty of space for entertaining.

The eight-bedroom, four-bathroom castellated house boasts a home office, utility room, gym, indoor swimming pool with central skylight, spa facilities including a sauna, hot tub and tanning room, and even a tennis court. But a house this grand comes with a hefty price tag; £5 million, to be precise.

With an open layout and magnificent large sash windows, there's an abundance of natural light throughout this property. At the heart of the house is a beautiful open archway sitting between the kitchen and breakfast room, but it's the west-facing drawing room which is perhaps the most impressive of them all. The vast windows and glass doors give exceptional, far-reaching views over the gardens and the river Exe to the surrounding countryside. In fact, it's the perfect spot to watch the magical sunsets over the estuary.

Elsewhere, the first floor master bedroom boasts a balcony, dressing room and ensuite bathroom, while the ground floor gym sits in a double height octagonal building with arched windows giving views around the entire garden. It'll probably become your second favourite spot in the house after the drawing room.

And yet there's more – Belvedere also comes with a separate outbuilding called The Lodge. Inside the additional Grade II listed gate lodge you'll find an open plan kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. This single storey building is ideal for guest accommodation.

Fancy moving here? The popular village of Lympstone is less than half a mile away from Belvedere and has excellent facilities for everyday requirements. Meanwhile, the cathedral city of Exeter is about nine miles from the property.

Belvedere is on the market for £5 million via Savills.
