Yealmpton - Gnaton Reservoir Plot At S X 5820 50520


A fantastic opportunity to acquire a development site for a potential Grand Design style home in this sought-after South Hams area near Yealmpton and Newton Ferrers.

The site benefits from detailed planning permission for a new detached house with a gross internal floor area of circa 168.5sqm (1,814 sqft), together with a detached car port and a detached workshop/storage shed.

Situated within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the site consists of a former covered water storage tank reservoir with associated outbuildings and plant structures. It is predominantly surrounded by agricultural fields with a typical quiet country road along its south-eastern boundary.

Located in a secluded yet accessible area at a relatively high point to the surrounding countryside, the site extends to approx. 0.14 ha (0.35 acres).


The former reservoir is located approximately 1 mile to the south of the centre of Yealmpton village and 2.5 miles to the northeast of the yachting haven of Newton Ferrers, between the estuaries of the Rivers Yealm and Erme in the sought-after South Hams area and within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is only approximately 8 miles from the City centre of Plymouth.

The historic waterfront City of Plymouth has a range of shops, department stores, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, colleges and university. The nearby sandy beach at Mothecombe is within easy reach as is the estuary village of Newton Ferrers just to the southwest, and Plymouth Sound boasts a wide range of water-sports. Outdoor pursuits such as golf, horse riding and cycling are all available nearby as is Dartmoor National Park.
