Situated overlooking the water in this truly beautiful corner of the River Yealm is Harbour Edge, a stunning contemporary three-bed house set within the site of the sensitively restored former River Yealm Hotel, in the popular yachting destination of Newton Ferrers.
Whilst being private and detached, Harbour Edge also benefits from having access to the development's extensive private woodland, western woodland seating area and private quay with direct foot access to the water and one of the most enviable south facing estuary views in the area. (Permits payable locally if launching paddleboards and kayaks etc).
A short flight of gently rising stone steps leads to the raised entrance hall of Harbour Edge, which situates a raised position overlooking the river.
Stepping into this sumptuous property, designed and beautifully furnished to provide aspirational spaces, built with a palette of zinc, wood and glass, there are floor to ceiling bi-fold doors which span the entire width of the building and open out to bring the fabulous waterside views and natural riverside light flooding into the living space.
The spacious open plan living room has large comfortable sofas, oak floors, Smart TV, and views of the water.
Dining table to seat up to eight.
Fully fitted high specification kitchen with dual electric ovens and hob, microwave, dishwasher, large larder fridge freezer, Nespresso coffee machine. Washer dryer located within the hallway utility cupboard.

The beautiful bi-folding doors peel back to reveal the large terrace overlooking the river, furnished with patio furniture and gas barbecue.
Within the entrance to the property, there is space to store a kayak or two.
(NB: The kayaks stored and secured at the property are not for guest use)
Below the property next to the water is a private jetty giving foot access to the river, exclusively for use by residents of The Yealm. Small craft (kayaks, paddleboards) are welcome to use the private jetty. It should be noted that the private jetty is tidal and therefore the water access is limited at times.
The public pontoon which is just below the Harbour Master Office nearby is significantly less tidal and it is possible to arrange other craft here, with the Harbour Master.
Immediately below the property is a private parking space for two cars. Here there is also an EV charging point linked to the apartment supply for charging. (As this is straight off the apartment supply, it is an overnight charging facility, not a fast charge.)
Another village in the popular South Hams area of South Devon, Newton Ferrers is a picturesque coastal village sitting on the banks of the Yealm estuary. Dating back to the Doomsday Book, the village is surrounded by ancient woodland and creeks and is a hidden gem perfect for a relaxing holiday and yet only 10 miles from Plymouth. Lying in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty you will be spoilt for choice on whether to relax inland or on or by the water. Discover Mothecombe beach, a private beach but open Wednesdays and weekends to the public, sandy, sheltered with great areas for rockpooling. Surprisingly good amenities include 3 pubs and 2 tea rooms and a good assortment of shops.
