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. 

DESCRIPTION Collaton Farmhouse is set in the Riparian parish of Newton Ferrers, close to the villages of Noss Mayo, Newton Ferrers and Yealmpton, which have the benefit of mooring use of the River Yealm (subject to availability).

The five bedroom property is currently divided into two dwellings, but could revert back into a grand farmhouse, whilst there is additional garaging, office and separate one bedroom accommodation (on two levels at The Linhay). The property is believed to be set in approximately 3.0 acres, with the option to purchase further land of about 9.664 acres. 

Farmhouse The Grade II Listed farmhouse is believed to have been built in circa 1844, being set on the site of an ancient settlement, which was once the home of the Pomeroy family. The home is subdivided as a 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom dwellings, (see plan), with separate reception rooms and bathrooms. It also features its own cellar.

The property itself displays many interesting character features including a huge granite fire surround in the living room, three granite mullioned bay windows to the kitchen, a Jacobian staircase, oak panelling and large studded back door in a granite arch.

Externally, the property features a lovely lawned garden, which is partly enclosed by ancient stone walls. There is a sunny terrace with roses and wisteria climbing over the elevation of the house. There is also a separate garage and office included. The approach lane, (as indicated on the plan), forms part of the curtilage. 

Linhay Annexe The Linhay annexe is a converted agricultural building which was used as a grain store on the upper floor. The reverse level accommodation comprises a double bedroom, a luxury tiled shower room on the lower level with living accommodation on the upper level. The living room is light and airy with exposed beams and trusses, and there is a fully fitted kitchen with integral dishwasher, fridge, electric oven, microwave and ceramic hob.

The Linhay features its own enclosed lawned garden, which is west facing with a small terrace and which is accessed by original steps to the upper levels. The Linhay has been refurbished by the current owners, incorporating green and energy saving features such as high insulation values, rainwater harvesting servicing the WC and washing machine, whole house ventilation which recycles extracted heat and provides fresh air and an air source heat pump providing heating and hot water.
