A touch of film star glamour and a dab of decadence can be yours in this exceptionally stylish Georgian Villa just released onto the market in Devons glorious South Hams.

Yealmpton Villa, a Grade II Listed property is in the perfect location for a beautiful countryside home whilst still in easy reach of the vibrant and historic city of Plymouth with its theatre, shopping, university and superb schools. Plus, there are great transport links to London, Europe and the world.

The villa is on the edge of the sought-after village of Yealmpton, which offers two fabulous dining pubs, a primary school, church and health centre. And you can pop down to the nearby estuary villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers on the Yealm, an idyllic location for yachting and general messing about in boats. World-famous Dartmoor National Park is just a short drive away.

Yealmpton Villa has serious wow factor with a stylish use of bold colours creating an exciting harmony with the Georgian period features including deep cornicing, marble fireplaces, sash windows and working shutters. The spacious drawing room with its twin ended fireplaces, curve ended dining room and granite-topped kitchen have the same glamorous feel making this house a wonderful one for entertaining. Theres also a study and a snug to create a quiet escape.

Upstairs the pace changes with a more neutral and exceptionally luxurious feel on the bedroom floor, which houses a master bedroom and dressing room, plus 5 further bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Gardens surround the property and youll love the large south-facing balustrade terrace with open views to the beautiful South Hams countryside. Cleverly designed seating areas create lots of spots to relax and enjoy the blissful peace and quiet of this delightful villa. You can stroll down a few steps to a level enclosed front lawn or chill in the secluded walled garden behind the house with its decked seating areas and hot tub.

There is a large gravelled parking area beside the house as well as garaging for 4 cars. There is plenty of storage above the garage and this building was built with conversion in mind for additional accommodation, subject to planning permission.

Another exciting feature of this property is the lower ground floor, which has full height cellars with access from outside giving a range of possibilities, including the option of creating a self-contained apartment.

The spectacular coastline of the South Hams, much of it owned by the National Trust is a truly magical place for walking along the South West Coast Path, enjoying the breathtaking views, bathing at the sandy beaches, sailing, windsurfing or whatever takes your fancy.

For the golfing enthusiast, there are excellent courses at St Mellion, Staddon Heights, Bigbury and Thurlestone and a driving range 15 minutes away.

This is an outstandingly popular area for sailing with the Mountbatten Sailing Centre, Plymouth Sound, the Tamar Estuary and the Yealm close by. Theres also the Salcombe Estuary, Dartmouth and the River Dart to the East as well as Fowey and the Fal Estuary to the West.

All in all, Yealmpton Villa offers gracious living, glamour and a wonderful lifestyle for its new owner in one of the most sought-after areas in the South West.
