Description A detached house, believed to be of 1950's origins and providing adaptable family accommodation with scope to extend, subject to the usual consents being obtained. The southerly aspect of the house, together with it's large picture windows, ensures both maximum light through the accommodation and also good views across the village towards the estuary valley, Noss Mayo and surrounding farmland.
The gardens have been beautifully landscaped and planted to provide splashes of colour and structural interest throughout the seasons. A superb timber Garden Studio building has been erected in the rear garden as a quiet office, but would be equally well suited as a summer house, children's play room or perhaps artist's studio.
Situation The twin villages of Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the estuary of the River Yealm. This sheltered, deep water harbour is much favoured by yachtsmen & lies within a truly beautiful valley in the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Special Area of Conservation.
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, tea-rooms & good Primary School. The holiday retreats and full time residences have found a comfortable balance that propel this thriving community, with countless clubs and activities available for the more sociable and active, or long picturesque walks for those that simply want to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. 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.
