Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set at the end of a drive which serves two other individual houses the property is in a location that will attract nature lovers who will be absorbed by the protected tree-lined surroundings which host an abundance of wildlife associated with the outstandingly beautiful River Yealm valley.

From this location the extraordinarily comprehensive facilities of Yealmpton are only a few minutes walk away. These include the Rose & Crown and Volunteers pubs, the health centre with dispensary, Post Office, hairdresser's, opticians, general stores, garage and it is on bus routes. The well rated Yealmpton Primary School is also within the village.

As a family house Tuckers Lodge excels. Its communicating sitting and dining rooms are complimented by a recently fitted kitchen and utility room. Upstairs the five bedrooms include a master suite with its own dressing room. A double garage is integral within the building and there is a useful brick Pavia drive approached through a wide timber gateway flanked by stone pillars.

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.
