Property Description: SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Believed to have been built in the 1930's Maxdene is an elevated bungalow sitting in the very heart of this thriving community. Extensively upgraded by the current owners, the property now provides family living space with the potential to further extend into the attic if required. Butterfly Cott was added to the rear of the bungalow in about 1990 as a self contained cottage. It could used as a productive holiday let but could easily be incorporated into the main accommodation if required.
The twin villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the estuary of the River Yealm. 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. Plymouth Airport and the Continental Ferryport are also easily accessible. All combine to 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. ACCOMMODATION
