Property Description

SITUATION A rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful and tranquil natural site of over one acre, enjoying an elevated position with westerly views across the River Yealm to National Trust land on the other side. It has been described as the most beautiful site in Newton Ferrers, and last changed ownership in 1970.

The twin villages of Newton Ferrers & 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 & 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 & 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 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.  

DESCRIPTION Steps Cottage is a timber framed bungalow constructed in 1924 occupying a large site of approximately .46 hectares (1.13 acres). The property enjoys an elevated position with limited views in a westerly direction across the River Yealm, to National Trust woodland beyond. This is one of the quietest and most secluded parts of Newton Ferrers. Being on a westerly slop, the property is sheltered from easterly winds, and is also screened from the north by the woods on the north boundary..

Steps Cottage is ultimately a property for complete redevelopment, subject to the necessary planning consents. A summary of the accommodation at the property at present is set out below.

Conservatory, inner front door to hall with electric heater.

Sitting room tiled fireplace, night storage heater.

Dining room brick fireplace, storage cupboard, bay with French doors to garden, night storage heater.

Kitchen twin sinks, electric cooker point.

Utility room with Rayburn for hot water and door to garden.

Double bedroom with hand basin.

Two single bedrooms, one with hand basin, and night storage heaters.

Study/Bedroom 4 night storage heater.

Bathroom with separate WC 

OUTSIDE Timber framed garden store, approximately 24 x 10. Lower cabin at the same level of the house, previously used for overflow accommodation.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS Steps Cottage is set in delightful gardens. A driveway leads up to the north of the house through mature woodland. The front garden is terraced and lawned, with shrubs, including rhododendron, mimosa and a number of sub-tropical plants, as well as roses, camellias and a variety of flowering shrubs. Steps lead down either side of the garden to the roadway below where there is a single garage.

Behind the house is an old orchard with apple and pear trees, and behind the old orchard is natural woodland going up to the skyline on the Eastern boundary.

The grounds support a variety of bird life. 

PLANNING It is anticipated the future owner of Steps Cottage will redevelop the site. Given the size of the site some prospective purchaser may see the potential to demolish and replace with two dwellings. Preliminary enquiries were made by the vendor for a single dwelling, architect Michael James, RIBA. A copy of his letter to the planning department of South Hams District Council is available, together with the accompanying sketch plan, and a copy of the Councils reply dated 20th May 2004. The architects proposals were for a new building with a floor area of 240m (2583 sq.ft) and the Councils response was that this would be supportable, subject to consideration and more detail of the design of the dwelling, the levels and other landscape impact such as existing trees and existing ground levels. Given the size of the site some prospective purchaser may see the potential to demolish and replace with two dwellings.

Services: Mains electricity. Mains water. Private drainage. Mains drainage and gas are available in the lane below, but presently not connected.  

LOCAL AUTHORITIES South Hams District Council, Follaton House, Plymouth Road, Totnes, Devon. TQ9 5NE. Tel. 01803 861234.
