Description A wonderful opportunity to acquire a south facing detached 3 bedroom property situated in an elevated position retaining magnificent views across the River Yealm towards Noss Mayo, to woodlands and open countryside. Built in 1930s, this period detached house has undergone modernisation including uPVC double glazing throughout and gas central heating, whilst maintaining its character and charm. This light and airy home is set in wonderful mature landscaped gardens, which offer privacy and a sense of tranquillity, and it also has the additional benefit of a self-contained studio suite behind the house and the garage/workshop. Its ideal location, a short level walk from the shops, and with the deep water harbour, village school, church and water access also within walking distance, makes 48 Yealm Road eminently suitable for a family or retirement home: Equally, the property has significant potential for extension or redevelopment (subject to planning consent).

Situation The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the River Yealm estuary. This sheltered, deep water harbour is much favoured by yachtsmen and lies within a truly beautiful valley in the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, traditional butcher, Co-Operative store, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro and good Primary school. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away. Intercity trains run daily from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferryport is also easily accessible. All give superb access to the rest of the country, combined with living in one of the most beautiful riverside locations on the south coast.

Plymouth itself is an historic & vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar & public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal & cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros & restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in & around Plymouth Sound.
