Mews Cottage is a Grade II listed attached house, one of a number dating from the 18th century within the historic hamlet of Membland, which is just outside the yachtsman’s haven of Newton Ferrers, on the Yealm Estuary.
The distinctive Dutch gables, magnificent stonework, and instant appeal of the property is complimented by the colourful, enthusiastically developed and maintained, garden which is overlooked by much of the accommodation. Presented most attractively the three storey house incorporates a large period style conservatory, bright and well arranged reception areas, together with ample bedroom space on the upper two floors.
Outside there is a useful stone-built workshop set within the rear courtyard. The gardens are well stocked and enthusiastically maintained, including lawns, colourful shrubberies, productive vegetable garden, parking for three vehicles and a detached stone-built garage.
The hamlet of Membland lies in scattered woodland quietly located in countryside about a mile from the tidal waters of the Yealm. This delightful house is one of a grouping of four houses created many years ago from the former stables of the estate of the banker, Edward Baring, later Lord Revelstoke. Dating from the late 1800s, mention is made of the property and the hamlet in Pevsner’s respected Devon edition of The Buildings of England.
Membland was one of the richest estates in Devon prior to the financial crash of 1890-91 but the estate was put on the market in 1895. The Hall passed through various owners until it was demolished in 1928. Fortunately most of the minor buildings, including the substantial Mews Cottage, survived as private dwellings retaining the magnificent architecture that Membland has today.
Mains water, electricity are connected. Private drainage shared between 10 properties in Membland, leading to mains drainage. Solid fuel heating to radiators via multifuel stove in the dining room.
