DESCRIPTION Elevated above the estuary and backing onto Woodland which is home to a variety of bird and wildlife, is North Lodge. Located in a little known spot just above the village of Newton Ferrers the property is situated at the end of a private road. Originally the garage to the main house (formerly a hotel) North Lodge has in recent years undergone a series of refurbishment and development to create what is now a spacious and versatile family home. A Northern Brittany influence is apparent throughout the property, with feature stone walls and bay windows. The master suite at the far end of the house is especially light and spacious and has the most charming view across the established, walled garden and over the countryside beyond from the full width bay window. In addition to the 3 other bedrooms the vendors have also converted the attic which is now accessed via a spiral staircase and affords a variety of potential uses.

Parking poses no problem at North Lodge where there is not only a driveway with space to accommodate several vehicles but also a double garage (which incidentally is heated should the need arise to protect anything housed within from the cold). Furthermore, above the garage is a timber framed annexe with kitchen and shower giving rise to a diverse range of potential uses.

In conclusion North Lodge is an attractive and versatile family home affording privacy and seclusion yet accessibility to the village and all it's amenities.  

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.
