Christopher’s South Hams are pleased to present this attached period home set in a private location close to the centre of this popular village.
The current owners have carried out extensive works including a large 2-storey extension and internal renovation to create a unique 5-bedroom home that combines period charm with modern convenience. Coming through the entrance via the parking area, you enter a large boot room/utility with separate cloakroom. From here, you are invited through to the exceptional farmhouse kitchen which has been fitted with a range of shaker-style units beneath a granite worktop, integrated appliances, Range and large central island. There is also an original fireplace, space for a large dining table and south-facing views across the private garden. The kitchen very much forms the heart of this home with direct access to the garden from the original front door. Adjacent to the kitchen is the sitting room which enjoys double aspect views and access to the picturesque garden. There is a good-sized study beyond with built-in storage. On the first floor, there is a double aspect master bedroom with modern ensuite and views across the garden. There are four further bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. Outside the property is approached to the rear via a driveway shared with 2 other properties. This leads to a private parking and turning area with space for several vehicles. Adjacent to this is a stone outbuilding with a number of storerooms. Further outbuildings include a detached garden studio which is insulated and has light and power connected; this has been used as a home office but would lend itself to a variety of other uses. There is one more outbuilding with storage and garden WC. The principal garden lies to the south of the house and has a large, paved terrace ideal for alfresco entertaining. Beyond this stretches a large level lawn bordered by mature shrubs and trees.

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 consistently 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. It certainly has all a growing family, or the retired could wish for and more. 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.
