Well appointed and extremely spacious detached family house in a most accessible rural location, close to a favoured village.
2 Yelland is a delightful modern country house offering bright and generously proportioned five-bedroomed accommodation that has been beautifully maintained and benefits from LPG gas central heating, productive solar panel heating and good quality double glazing. Outside, there are sunny seating areas, and separate lawns all forming remarkably private garden, enclosed by mature hedging. The property also benefits from a substantial double garage/workshop.
To conclude; 2 Yelland is a perfect family home of genuine quality in a peaceful yet extremely accessible rural location.
2 Yelland occupies a very pleasant elevated position in a tiny country hamlet about 0.5 miles from the popular village of Rattery. This pretty South Hams village has an historic parish church, noted local inn (The Church House Inn) and offers a range of active clubs and societies. The surrounding countryside is delightfully unspoilt with excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Dartington, the renowned Centre for Performing Arts and Progressive Education is about 3.5 miles and the property is within short motoring distance of the Dartmoor National Park and the beautiful South Devon coast. Totnes, the celebrated and historic South Hams town is about 6 miles and provides an interesting range of shops, restaurants, cafes, galleries, a main-line station and good educational provision (secondary schooling is also available at Ashburton). A particular feature of 2 Yelland is convenience and accessibility. Totnes has a mainline station to London Paddington and to the north, the A38 dual carriageway (about 2.5 miles) gives fast links to Plymouth, Exeter and beyond.
