A mainly Georgian detached house set in grounds of about 5.7 acres, beautifully positioned at the head of the Yealm Estuary.
Built in 1750 and carefully extended in 1988 Bridgend House is an elegant and practical family house set within gardens that have been nurtured by the present owners over the last forty years, providing a high degree of privacy. The estuary, a slipway, and quay lie just beyond the garden and the excellent facilities of Newton Ferrers are a mere half a mile away. Barely visible from the public highway the walled driveway up to the house is an impressive introduction to this outstanding property.
Internally, a gracious reception hall with curved gallery over, gives access to the ample suite of rooms. Notably, the dual aspect kitchen, key to the 1988 extension, is a fabulous room for modern use, giving direct access to the outside terraces and the garden. The proportioned drawing and dining rooms are balanced versatile additional rooms which could form studies or family dens, while below there is a wine cellar and laundry room. On the first floor the five double bedrooms lead from the long landing.
The grounds are magnificent and remarkably private. Sweeping lawns, an outside swimming pool, secluded terraces festooned with climbing roses and many well established specimen trees and shrubs, are complimented by grass paddocks and mixed woodland beyond. A stream runs down through the centre of the grounds, whilst in the upper part of the garden there is a steadily maturing cherry orchard.
The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo form a haven for yachtsmen, with deep water moorings, surrounded by the beautiful scenery coastal of the South Hams, which is part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Noss Mayo includes The Ship and The Swan public houses, whilst Newton Ferrers includes a well-equipped local supermarket, church, Post Office, cafe, primary school, butcher's shop, pharmacist, pub, yacht club and numerous waterfront facilities. Three miles away is the comprehensively equipped village of Yealmpton which also includes a health centre, hairdressers, opticians, and garage. The centre and waterfront of the large city of Plymouth is 10 miles to the west, while the towns of Modbury and Kingsbridge lie to the east.
