Detached character farmhouse on outskirts of desirable coastal villages

Wrescombe Farmhouse is a Grade II listed, early Victorian, detached character farmhouse with remarkably bright accommodation overlooking its own level gardens of about 0.4 acre with a stone garage and ample parking, close to the Yealm Estuary.

The substantial group of stone buildings, principally comprising Wrescombe Court and Wrescombe Farmhouse lie about one and a half miles equal distance between the picturesque coastal villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo and the amenities of thriving Yealmpton.

Set high above the glorious upper reaches of the Yealm Estuary, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this part of the western South Hams is remarkably unspoilt yet accessible. Wrescombe Farmhouse enjoys stunning sunsets with the back drop of the gentle rolling countryside.

Dartmoor National Park lies to the north east and the coastline to the south with its beautiful estuaries, cliffs and beaches. The city of Plymouth is approximately 12 miles to the west, and it is less than 7 miles from the A38 Expressway to Exeter, an hour’s drive away.

Chartered surveyor, Roger Punch FRICS, consultant with the Newton Ferrers branch of Marchand Petit Estate Agents said: “This south facing farmhouse is a family house of ideal proportions, with great character. Principal features include a traditional farmhouse kitchen, an ample suite of reception rooms, a versatile office or study overlooking its own courtyard, generous bedrooms, and a cellar. As well as the delightful and private south facing garden there is a further kitchen garden, which is remarkably sheltered and productive. The new owners of Wrescombe could simply walk into a flourishing and well cultivated garden and start enjoying the good life.”

Riparian rights for mooring on the River Yealm are a further advantage as is the 20 foot additional shed offering versatile storage for boats, bikes and leisure paraphernalia. As well as the attractive double garage, there is allocated parking, well screened from the communal driveway.  

Viewing of Wrescombe Farmhouse is highly recommended - please contact the Newton Ferrers branch (01752 873311) who are marketing the property with a guide price of £750,000, who welcome a call for further details and to arrange a viewing.
