About this property

This superb 4 double bedroom period cottage has been thoughtfully renovated to the highest standard with pretty landscaped cottage gardens. Exceptional open plan living/kitchen room with bespoke kitchen. Driveway providing parking. Attractive village location. EPC Rating C.

A truly outstanding bright and airy family home which has been completely renovated internally and externally by the current owners to an extremely high standard. Oak flooring throughout with limestone flooring in the kitchen/ dining room, and utility. Ceramic tiled bathrooms. Underfloor heating on the ground floor. Beautifully landscaped gardens backing on to open farmland with sitting and dining areas and summerhouse.

The property gains its name as Pleasaunce from the medieval name for “a garden with the sole purpose of giving pleasure to the senses”. Set back from the road and accessed by a short path the property is in an enviable position with a southerly aspect extending over the twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo and the countryside beyond. Dating from the early 1800s the building has been cherished by the current owners over many years and retains the usual architectural intricacies of an old cottage, delightful fenestration and most of all a welcoming atmosphere and charm. It truly deserves it description with a further meaning of Pleasaunce in the Breton meaning “a safe haven”.

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.
