Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An opportunity to acquire a 0.05 hectare (0.13 acre) parcel of land on the waterfront of the popular riverside village of Newton Ferrers.

The site slopes steeply with three defined plateaus each having the benefit of exceptional panoramic views of both the estuary and creek. It also offers a purchaser access to the water via a slipway held on a separate lease.

Previously used as a laboratory, we believe the site is suitable for a wide range of uses including residential, subject to securing the necessary consents.


The property is located within Newton Ferrers, a small village approximately 6 miles South East of the City of Plymouth. The village has a population of 1,100 and stretches across the northern bank of the River Yealm estuary within an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

The village is one of the most desirable reidential locations in South Devon and contains its own post office, church, public house and primary school.

The site is located on the southern side of Yealm Road, the main route through the western side of Newton Ferrers, approximately 850 metres from the village centre. It is positioned on the waterfornt at the bend of the River Yealm as it meets the Newton Ferrers estuary.


The majority of the accommodation is provided in two 2 storey detached buildings providing approximately 149.73 sq m (1,611 sq ft) and located below the existing road level. The property also has the benefit of an existing garage accessed directly off Yealm Road.


We understand that the property currently has planning consent as a laboratory under class B1 of the Town & Country Planning Act (Use Classes Order) 1987.

We believe the site lends itself for redevelopment to other uses, including residential, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

Interested parties should make enquiries with South Hams District Council's planning department on 01803 861234.
