Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb and unique detached family house, dating back to the 1950s, sympathetically extended in recent times, and exceptionally well presented. The combination of private setting, long southerly aspect, generous level gardens and “tucked away” central village location bounded by high hedges and trees, makes this a rare opportunity. In addition to the generous gardens there is a further, mainly level, garden area with recently obtained planning permission for an additional dwelling which would also enjoy the southerly aspect and remarkable seclusion.

Yealmpton is set in the beautiful South Hams countryside, just above the head of the Yealm estuary, with Dartmoor National Park to the north east and the coastline to the south with its beautiful estuaries, cliffs and beaches. The city of Plymouth is a short distance to the west and Newton Ferrers, at the mouth of the River Yealm and noted for its sailing, is even closer at hand. Yealmpton was described as a borough in ancient records and tradition says the Saxon King Ethelwold had a palace here. The annual Yealmpton Show, which has been running since 1874, is held at nearby Kitley House, the family home of the Polloxfens and Bastards since the time of Elizabeth I and where the nursery rhyme Old Mother Hubbard was written. The village itself has a number of amenities including several shops, primary school, health centre, two pubs, restaurant, garage and Church.
