"Paradise Point" is a Victorian-style landmark located on the site of the former Paradise Fort with unobstructed views of Kingswear Castle and Dartmouth. After its current owners bought the Grade II-listed property back in 2008, they extensively renovated it. A little over 6,700 square feet of four-level living space boasts five bedrooms and six bathrooms. It also features hardwood floors, high ceilings, built-ins, and sash windows.
In the village of Warfleet, the yellow brick and slate-roof house is located on a gated, garden-laced parcel spanning nearly three-quarters of an acre, equipped with modern amenities, including a wine cellar, movie theater, and entertainment room with a wet bar. There is also a pathway that winds down to a jetty and mooring, along with parking for up to nine cars, along with a pathway that leads to the dock.
There is a reception hall with a fireplace that serves as a welcoming sight, and it displays Jerusalem stone floors and a curved bookcase with a secret door leading to the bathroom.
Therefore, the Mark Wilkinson custom kitchen boasts granite countertops, an island, a Britannia range cooker of the highest quality, a windowed breakfast area that has banquette seating and French doors that spill out to an outdoor dining terrace, a formal dining room with twelve seats, as well as a windowed breakfast nook with banquette seating. There is a fireplace in the room, which is decorated with a mural depicting scenes from rivers that provides a sense of warmth.
There is a purple-hued primary bedroom, along with a fireplace, a private balcony, a dressing room, and twin baths. As well as the drawing room and the conservatory, there is also a self-contained apartment on the second floor that has two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a sitting room with a fireplace, a kitchen and dining area, as well as a self-contained apartment on the first floor.
There has been an additional bonus which has been added to the project: Plans have been submitted to build a two-story office/boat house near the jetty on the property as part of the project.
