A delightful waterside cottage with long views over the tidal estuary of the River Yealm. EPC Rating D.
Located within a short terrace of stone cottages set above the foreshore the cottage offers outstanding views over the tidal estuary of the River Yealm within the yachtman's haven of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers. The twin villages offer a sheltered and outstandingly beautiful environment, including tidal and deep water moorings, slipways and quayside areas, while also being comparatively tranquil. Within the villages there are three waterside pubs, a yacht club, supermarket, Post Office, butchers, pharmacist, churches, primary school, and thriving all-year round community with many local activities. Plymouth City centre is within 20 minutes normal driving time.
The most appealing cottage can be entered either from the water's edge, at low tide, or directly from the lane at the rear. A welcoming entrance dining room/kitchen leads down to a sitting room which enjoys a totally absorbing view over the water below and across to Newton Ferrers. A stone external terrace leads to the self contained suite, also fully enjoying the view. The upper floor includes two bedrooms (one of which also enjoys the water aspect), and the bathroom, approached by a typical and attractive cottage staircase.
It is from the terraces overlooking the water that this property is enjoyed the most, ideal for alfresco dining, or simply enjoying a coffee or glass of wine in one of the most engaging village settings in the region.
