Property Description: SITUATION
The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo 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 and Special Area of Conservation.
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, tea-rooms and good Primary School. The holiday retreats and full-time residences have found a comfortable balance that propel this thriving community with countless clubs and activities available for the more sociable and active, or long picturesque walks for those that simply want to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. 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 regularly from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferryport in Plymouth is also easily accessible.
Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar & public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal & cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros & restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in and around Plymouth Sound and numerous marinas. ACCOMMODATION
Wayside enjoys a wonderful position with extensive views over the estuary and has a west and south facing aspect, enjoying the sun all day long. This outstanding viewpoint gives endless changing scenes over both the villages and the water - and particular 'front row seats' for the annual Regatta and Fireworks from the comfort of your own home. Furthermore, the property tailors itself to be suitable either as a stunning permanent home or an immensely practical holiday home. The house has been lovingly maintained and upgraded and now provides an outstanding opportunity for a new owner.
