A Grade II listed detached former vicarage standing in approx. 0.45 acres (0.18 hectares) of South facing private gardens in the heart of the well-equipped South Hams village of Yealmpton.
Yealmpton Manor, which has been in the same ownership for many years, is thought to be one of the finest properties in the village. Retaining the classical architecture that justifies its listing. it is also a practical family house set in established and remarkably secluded grounds with extensive parking and generous garaging/workshop and studio above. The accommodation is presentable, having recently been extensively re-decorated. Architecturally this is an impressive house with a large central semi-circular bay windows and a portico entrance flanked with Tuscan columns. The interior retains much of its original joinery including window shutters and some six panelled doors, fire surrounds and ceiling roses. The hall includes a beautiful sweeping staircase with mahogany handrail.
The property lies within the Conservation Area close to the centre of Yealmpton, a location that offers, within a short walking distance, a large health centre with dispensary, Post Office, general stores, café, hairdressers, optician, two pubs and a regular bus route to Plymouth City Centre. Within the village there is also a primary school, and two churches. A remarkable network of footpaths lie around the village and the beautiful countryside of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the River Yealm Valley. From here there is also quick access to the A38 Devon Expressway, Mothecombe and other superb South Hams beaches, Plymouth's City Centre and Waterfront.
