Private road within short walk to shops

Guide 435,000 Freehold


With an alluring facade, a rare, flat fronted Victorian semi-detached villa overlooking its garden in a quiet and little known enclave just a short walk from Yelverton’s amenities. Believed to date from 1893, as one half of three gracious pairs of houses known as Yelverton Park Villas, they were built within in the grounds of the railway holt - now a private residence.

Gracious in its proportion and set over only two floors St David’s is the epitome of elegance. With much of its period detail remaining it offers a classic footprint of accommodation which extends to approx. 3000sq. ft., comprising of 5/6 bedrooms, bath & shower rooms, 3 receptions plus the usual domestic offices. The principal rooms upstairs capture a view over Dartmoor National Park.

The interior accommodation was formerly converted into two self-contained apartments as is evident by the external staircase rising to the first floor former kitchen, and there remains the potential to reinstate this division. 

The main garden sits, secluded, at the front of the property, with the drive passing through a pillared gateway. The house frontage benefits from a broad veranda with fine period iron work, accessing an adjoining conservatory, and marking the transition between the interior and its garden. There are additional, smaller garden areas, along with a garage and shed, to the side, with a small courtyard to the rear.
