Full Details

DESCRIPTION Stonecourt is an exceptionally spacious detached four bedroom residence originally built during the 1970’s and set in a large beautifully landscaped garden of approx 0.29 acres that was originally one of Membland Hall’s beautiful stone walled kitchen gardens. The property has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard now providing wonderfully spacious accommodation including a sitting room with balcony overlooking the garden and fields beyond, dining room and generous kitchen/breakfast room. The double glazing was fully replaced by the current owners with modern UPVC double glazed windows and patio doors. There is also a master bedroom suite with dressing room, spacious en-suite bathroom and shower room on the ground floor as well as three further bedrooms (with en-suite shower room), kitchen and a family bathroom on the lower ground floor. Outside, the property enjoys large landscaped gardens with paved driveway and plenty of parking.

SITUATION Stone Court is minutes from lovely coastal walks, beaches and the twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo which enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the River Yealm estuary. This sheltered, deep water harbour is much favoured by yachtsmen and lies within a truly beautiful valley in the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, traditional butcher, Co-Operative store, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro and good Primary school. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away. Intercity trains run daily from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferryport is also easily accessible. All give superb access to the rest of the country, combined with living in one of the most beautiful riverside locations on the south coast. Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in and around Plymouth Sound.
