About this property

An exceptional contemporary detached house, inspiringly designed, standing in professionally landscaped grounds of approaching 0.25 acre, overlooking the twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo on the Yealm Estuary, and the tidal waters of Noss Creek.

Spindrift is a comprehensively equipped, immaculately presented and high specification contemporary family house that has been the subject of exacting and inspirational remodelling within the last ten years.
The first impression of Spindrift is striking, and from the generous paved driveway leads to the accommodation via twin entrance doors with porthole windows. The large galleried reception hall, with cloakroom off, has a through view to the main living space and the terrace beyond. The breathtaking 36 ft long living room has a study area off, and two bi-fold doors seamlessly opening to the water facing sun terrace. A 19ft kitchen, with Aga stove, leads to the utility room. On the lower ground floor there is a 24ft garden room, again with twin bi-fold doors, which could lend itself to many uses, especially a work-from-home space or separate suite, served by a cloakroom with shower.
The top floor includes a landing galleried over the hall and a full width balcony which is accessed from three of the bedrooms, including the principal suite that enjoys its own 15ft dressing room and en-suite bathroom. Additionally there is a guest bedroom suite including an excellent shower room, and there is a similarly equipped family bathroom.
The garden lies on the south side of the house, professionally landscaped with architectural skill to create a sequence of gentle terraces and interest, all takes advantage the open views across the village, to the water of Noss Creek and to the farmland and wooded hillsides beyond. A path leads down via a gateway to Court Road, placing the village facilities within a very short walk.
Court Road is devoted to mainly substantial houses in their own grounds, set back from the road, forming an established and highly desirable residential area. Newton Ferrers is a much sought after estuary village on the northern slope of the beautiful estuary of the River Yealm within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village, together with the adjoining Noss Mayo, has a range of amenities which include two churches, primary school, post office, Cooperative store, butchers, chemists, The Dolphin, The Swan and The Ship pubs and a very active yacht club. Fine cliff top, river, woodland and coastal walks, lead from the village.
Dartmoor National Park is just a short distance away and nearby are several golf courses. The historic and vibrant Ocean City of Plymouth is within easy commuting distance. The large university has a number of world class faculties and both medical and dental schools. The outstanding Theatre Royal has a national reputation. A regular train service to both London and the north, and vehicle ferries connect to Roscoff in Brittany, and Santander in Northern Spain.
