Description Luscombe Maye are proud to present 1 Pillory Hill. Once a modest fisherman's cottage, this deceptively spacious home has been cleverly extended accommodating the slope of the ground to now range over three floor levels. The elevated nature of the cottage provides long views over the estuary towards Newton Ferrers village and down towards the harbour. The property is also blessed with a private parking space immediately outside the front door - a rare commodity for the cottage homes in the area. The property must be viewed to appreciate the extent of the accommodation and the unexpected views from the higher levels and the recently extended garden, enjoying the last of the sun as it sets over the deep water Pool. The current owner has lived full time in the cottage, but more recently let the cottage on a weekly basis as a holiday retreat. Figures for this can be sourced for seriously interested parties.
Situation The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and 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 and 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 and 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.
