Swallows and Amazons meets The Railway Children...
Whether buyers are train buffs or sailing enthusiasts there is something for everyone with this stunning waterside home - on the market for £1.5m.
QuerQuay sits in "one of the most spectacular locations in the south west" on the bank of the River Dart and has its own private boardwalk along the river.
It also has a steam railway that runs past the house, which selling agent Savills have described as something out of the Railway Children.
The unique house was lovingly built by one man over 13 years and constructed almost entirely from natural materials sourced, salvaged and reclaimed from the local area.
The aptly-named property, a play on the word 'quirky', has an unusual twist as it can be one three-bedroom house or can be divided into two independent apartments with their own entrances, thanks to an ingenious secret stairway that can be concealed in the ground floor ceiling.
