About this property

A superbly presented attached Grade II listed Cottage in a quiet hamlet. 1045 sq ft (97.6 sq.m)
Beamed sitting room with woodburner, 21 ft kitchen dining room with bi-fold doors. Delightful long and private garden with summerhouse.

Holly Cottage is one of a pair of Grade II listed thatched cottages, thought to date from the mid 18th century, set in a quiet lane in the Hamlet of Dunstone, about a mile from the large village of Yealmpton in the western portion of the South Hams and within 3 miles of the coast. The superbly presented cottage retains much of the character of the original property while also incorporating contemporary improvements which have been carefully executed by the present owners over the last three years. Building works included the replacement of the kitchen, which is comprehensively fitted, and the creation of a most attractive dining area, and the extension of the upper floor. Underfloor heating has been incorporated throughout the ground floor, and the bathroom and shower room suites have been replaced. Features also include a beamed sitting room with local stone chimney breast and woodburner, window seats, exposed beams, and many other typical characteristics of an old cottage.

The garden is sheltered and has been carefully developed to create a most attractive private haven with level lawn areas, many specimen shrubs, a large pond, and a delightful summerhouse with power and lighting. Decked areas lie outside the dining area and beside the pond.

This location is within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is remarkably accessible being just south of the A379 only about a mile from Yealmpton. The village offers a large health centre with dispensary, Post Office, general stores, café, hairdressers, optician, two pubs and primary school, and two churches. A regular bus route to Plymouth City Centre is about half a mile from the property. Mothecombe Beach is only 3.5 miles away, and Plymouth's City Centre and Waterfront 8 miles. The yachtsman's haven of Newton Ferrers is only 5 miles distant and the Dartmoor National Park is only about 10 minutes' drive to the north.

Mains water and electricity. LPG fired central heating - underfloor heating on ground floor. Mains drainage.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.
