LOCATION Step Cottage lies on the very edge of the waterside village of Newton Ferrers. The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are a waterside haven, off the River Yealm, set to the south western corner of the South Hams. This outstandingly beautiful area has many attractions. The well equipped village of Newton Ferrers includes a variety of small shops, a post office, a yacht club, pub, junior school and other village facilities.

The yacht club and deep water moorings are popular with yachtsmen, and the twin village of Noss Mayo includes two further pubs and a quayside.

Much of the countryside surrounding the village is owned by the National Trust and there are many special walks along the coast from here.

The A379 provides a quick link into Plymouth City Centre while the A38, approximately 6 miles to the north, links to the M5 at Exeter. 

DESCRIPTION The plot extends to approximately 1.15 acres and represents a unique opportunity to purchase a beautiful, tranquil and natural site in an elevated position with a westerly aspect across the River Yealm to National Trust land opposite.

In our clients ownership since 1970 Steps Cottage comprises a timber framed bungalow, believed to have been constructed in 1924. The floorplan demonstrates the current accommodation layout however, whilst the property is currently inhabited it is considered appropriate to describe it as a property for complete redevelopment, subject to achieving the necessary planning consent. All prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries to satisfy themselves. The deeds refer to a right of way to and over a private quay. 

OUTSIDE The property is approached over a very private driveway serving a number of individual properties. The driveway provides parking, there is also a single garage adjacent to the road. The front garden is terraced and lawned with well established trees and shrubs including Rhododendrons, Mimosa, sub-tropical varieties, Roses and Camellias. To the rear the sloping garden incorporates an old orchard with apple and pear trees with natural broad leaf woodland beyond. Within the rear garden there is a garden shed approximately 24ft x 10ft.  

PLANNING It is anticipated the future owner of Steps Cottage will redevelop the site. Given the size of the site some prospective purchaser may see the potential to demolish and replace with two dwellings. Preliminary enquiries were made by the vendor for a single dwelling, architect Michael James, RIBA. A copy of his letter to the planning department of South Hams District Council is available, together with the accompanying sketch plan, and a copy of the Councils reply dated 20th May 2004. The architects proposals were for a new building with a floor area of 240m (2583 sq.ft) and the Councils response was that this would be supportable. Purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries with South Hams District Council in this regard.
