About this property

A delightful restored cottage, with beamed and most attractive interior, set at the end of a terrace, and with level driveway and good-sized garden, in the heart of the old, now suburban, village of Plympton St Mary

Green Bank Cottage is thought to date back to the late 18th century. Restored with great sympathy while also carefully incorporating up to date fittings and facilities the cottage retains many characteristics of the period.
Set at right angles to the road and entered by a timber 5 bar gate flanked by a pair of stone ball topped pillars leading into the level drive, this is an instantly welcoming and immensely characterful property. The layout is practical and well proportioned, with excellent sitting and dining rooms, each over 17ft long, a well fitted kitchen, ground floor shower room, utility, and a most versatile family room with vaulted ceiling. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all of generous size, and an attractive family bathroom.
Outside, the level, walled, garden, driveway and parking area for several cars gives easy access to the accommodation, a facility that is always most valued by families. Rising up from the front garden is the principal garden with its expanse of lawns, all fenced and private, which enjoys views over the rooftop of Plympton and beyond.

The old village area of Plympton St Mary, away from through traffic, provides a variety of independent small shops, a large parish Church, local pubs, and bus routes. Within a mile is the comprehensively equipped Plympton town centre which also includes primary and secondary schools, leisure centre, doctors' surgery, and many other facilities. The A38 Devon Expressway is within 5 minutes' drive, and Plymouth City Centre, University, Waterfront, large regional hospital and many other amenities are all within about 10 minutes normal driving time. Plympton's National Trust Saltram House and Gardens lie only a mile away.
