Yeoland Lane, Yelverton


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial family home with a self contained annexe set in a wonderful rural setting, just on the outskirts of Yelverton with approximately 1.5 acres of paddock and formal gardens and several sizeable outbuildings.

Yelverton is known as one of the gateways to Dartmoor, just inside the edge of the National Park, between Tavistock and Plymouth. The village provides a good selection of shops, including a supermarket, pharmacy, doctors, dentist, a bank, butchers, hairdresser, garage, post office, hotels and inns. The ancient stannary town of Tavistock, to the north, has private education facilities, with Kelly College, whilst, to the south, the portside city of Plymouth provides excellent educational (including Plymouth College and universities),
recreational and shopping facilities. There are mainline railway stations to London (Paddington) and ferries to the Continent. Dartmoor is renowned for its spectacular scenery, with its tors, heather-clad moorland and wooded valleys bisected by rushing streams and rivers. There are many opportunities locally for fishing, walking, riding, climbing and cycling, together with the Drakes Trail cycle route from Tavistock to Plymouth, running not too far from the property, while about 4 miles away is the stunningly beautiful Burrator reservoir. The South Devon coast, with its excellent beaches, estuaries and coastal walks, together with excellent facilities for sailing on Plymouth Sound and on the estuaries of the Rivers Tavy and Tamar, are all within easy reach, while further afield there are the
famous centres of Salcombe and Dartmouth. There are golf courses at Whitchurch, Yelverton, Saltash and St. Mellions.

Property Description
A beautifully positioned period family home which
provides scope for update and improvement.
Built originally, we believe, in the 1800s in the
traditional manner, there is also the benefit of an
attached two bedroom cottage (date unknown) which currently provides rental income/annexe potential. The property has a considerable number of useful outbuildings including a detached barn which is understood to be constructed circa 14th/15th century.

The property has approximately 1.5 acres of land, which is separated into formal gardens with a westerly aspect and heated swimming pool, outbuildings including further barns, hay stores, garages, car port and pigsties with connected courtyard leading to the paddock. The garden continues down into an orchard with some fruit trees and where there are a collection of around
200 different varieties of daffodil. The house benefits from solar panels which are located on the barn roof with an annual income we understand of approximately £1,000. There are oil fired range cookers in both the house and cottage supplying hot water and cooking facilities. Wood burning stoves complement the main rooms of the house.

The Gardens
The property is approached via several entrances from Yeoland Lane. The first and second entrances lead into the courtyard/parking area surrounded by several of the outbuildings. There is a five bar gate which provides access into the paddock passing between the hay store, barns and the pigsties. At the rear of the house is another smaller courtyard which is divided by wooden fencing and gate creating a separate garden area for the attached cottage. To the front of the house is a stone
chipping driveway which is gated from Yeoland Lane and provides a formal entrance leading to the front elevation. There is also a well stocked garden with lawn and seating terrace ideal for al-fresco dining. A path leads down to the lower garden where there is a heated swimming pool, warmed by a Heatseeker air source heat pump. The pool is fenced in and is approximately 30' long and 18' wide with diving board. Beside it there is a summer house and shed for pool equipment.
The garden continues down into an orchard with
wildflowers and over 200 different varieties of daffodil and further gated driveway. This area of the garden continues back around into the paddock along an attractive Devon Bank through apple and pear trees.
