Christopher’s South Hams are delighted to present this utterly unique and quirky cottage close to the heart of this popular South Hams village.
Step through your own grotto to a charming, covered courtyard and discover a wealth of magic hidden behind the cobbled walls. To one side of the courtyard is the utility/workshop with light, power, water and drainage connected. On the other side of the courtyard is a door inviting you to the main cottage, starting in the kitchen. The kitchen/dining room is teeming with character from its exposed beams and timbers as well as the cosy fireplace with log burner. From the kitchen, a small flight of stairs leads you to the first floor and the loft-style sitting room. Boasting a triple aspect, this incredibly light and airy space showcases a bespoke set of steps taking you to a second seating area outside that is very private and secluded. Whilst able to give a modern feel, this room reminds you of its cottage feel with another log burner. One of the two double bedrooms sits opposite the sitting room and offers built-in storage. The second double bedroom is on the second floor adjacent to the well-appointed bathroom which also benefits from further storage.
In addition to the courtyard, the main garden is accessed via the aforementioned steps in the sitting room. Opposite the seating area is a potting shed and a pathway that wraps around to the rear of the cottage where mature borders and trees frame a level lawn. At the end of the garden is a pedestrian gate leading to a shared green path enabling the garden to be accessed without going through the cottage. There is a right of way across the rear courtyard for the two neighbours (but it is worth noting that this is not their main access). There are more surprises to be had with a small garden at the front of the cottage enjoying super views down the valley.
Offered with no onward chain and newly renovated throughout, this absolutely stunning cottage brings a plethora of opportunities; from those looking to downsize to even those looking for a second home as a country retreat – it could even be attractive to those seeking Air BnB income – the possibilities are endless but suffice to say, whatever the reason to buy, this truly is a distinctive and ‘one of a kind’ place to call home.

Ermington is a pretty village nestled in the enviable rolling South Hams hills, approximately three miles outside of Ivybridge and around twelve miles from the vibrant waterfront city of Plymouth. There is easy access to both Dartmoor and the beaches of the South Hams Coastline, in particular the Yealm Estuary at Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo and there are also plenty of nearby public footpaths for some glorious countryside walks.
The historic village is home to the attractive church of St Peter and St Paul with its famous crooked spire and its namesake pub, a charming bistro as well as a boutique hotel and restaurant. Ermington’s primary school is currently rated as outstanding and with its focus on community, the village shop, café, park and green have space to regularly host various clubs and groups as well as events laid on by the village committee. The hive of activity on offer certainly has all a growing family, or the retired could wish for and is no more than a 5-10 minute stroll from the cottage. Nearby towns of Ivybridge, Yealmpton and Modbury offer a wealth of amenities between them, including GP and Dental Surgeries, a minor injuries unit, two leisure centres with swimming pools, Libraries, Rugby, Football, Cricket and Tennis Clubs. If golf is your escape, then there is the 18-hole course at nearby Wrangaton set against the backdrop of the beautiful Ugborough Beacon. Access to Exeter and Plymouth are made easy via the A38 and there is the Penzance-Paddington/London mainline from Ivybridge train station as well.
