Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Menryn is nestled within an abundance of prolific mature shrubs and trees including rhododendron, pieris, magnolia, azalea and acer, with a backcloth of mixed woodland and remarkably sheltered level garden areas, above the banks of the wide and tidal River Yealm. Menryn has remained in its original ownership for more than 50 years. This beautiful house, which can barely be seen from the private road and footpaths that provide access, is both unique and discreet, appearing almost to have grown out of the environment in which it stands.

The accommodation is set well above the private road, which gives access to a single home beyond. Through skilled design natural light floods into the living space. There is real scope to expand this very special house if required, subject to the necessary consents being obtained, although the current layout allows versatility to suit individual needs. A design influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, the American architect who believed in creating structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, and a philosophy he called “organic architecture”, this unique property deserves the attention of a discerning buyer.

Newton Ferrers is a much sought after estuary village on the northern slope of the beautiful estuary of the River Yealm, opposite Noss Mayo on the southern side. It has a range of local amenities including a Church, Post Office, pub and restaurant, Yacht Club and a primary school. For more comprehensive shopping centres Plymouth is to the west and Kingsbridge to the east. From here there are fine cliff top, woodland and coastal walks and the Yealm Estuary is very popular with yachtsmen. There are 18-hole golf courses at Wrangaton to the north which backs onto the Dartmoor National Park and at Bigbury to the east.

Outside 
The approach along the private Courtwood Road is partly unsurfaced, but serviceable. The road is approached in turn from the public highway of Yealm Road. The grounds extend in all to about 2.028 acres. At road level is a single garage and parking area. To the lower side of the road the grounds extend down to High Water Mark, with long frontage (see plan). Here there is a quay and running mooring, accessed by a path from Courtwood Road. A track, with limited vehicle access runs diagonally up to the house where the naturally laid-out gardens unfold. Level areas extend to the side where there is a wonderful canopy provided by a well-established acer. A further level garden emerges, ideally suited to the creation of a tennis court, adjacent to which is a useful store or small workshop. Behind the house there is a further, remarkably sheltered and private level area on two terraced lawns with views up through the mixed woodland beyond. Here there is a carpet of bluebells, (truncated)

Running Mooring 
There is a running mooring in the River Yealm subject to the Yealm Harbour Authority.
