Property Description: DESCRIPTION
This spacious semi-detached Grade II former farmhouse dates, in parts, from the late 17th Century and has a wealth of character features, making this home feel truly individual. Exposed stone walls, flagstone floors, window seats, exposed beams, stone lintels, vaulted ceilings and other period details, help to create a sense of history.
Whilst the property would suit those looking for a 'bottom heavy house', the flexible accommodation would also benefit those needing a downstairs bedroom and bathroom or annexe for a family member. There is also potential to convert the attic rooms into further bedrooms, (subject to any necessary consents).
The spacious and well proportioned accommodation briefly comprises a farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with pantry, dining room, living room, bedroom 3/home office, bathroom and utility/boot room on the ground floor with two double bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor and stairs to two attic rooms on the second floor.
The property also boasts gas central heating, (Worcester gas combi), private garden with Southerly aspect and off-road parking for three vehicles. LOCATION
The village-like atmosphere of Elburton and close proximity to the countryside of the South Hams, continues to ensure that the location remains one of the most sought-after areas within the city of Plymouth. Amenities include the OFSTED rated 'Outstanding' Elburton primary school, post office, Co-op convenience store, butcher's shop, pharmacy, bakery, public houses, take-aways and regular bus service into Plymstock and Plymouth. Secondary schooling is available at Coombe Dean and Plymstock schools. Nearby, the Plymstock Broadway has a wider range of shops, library, health centre and the city centre of Plymouth is only 4½ miles with a range of large department stores, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, grammar schools, colleges and university. The nearby beaches of Wembury and Bovisand are easily accessible along with the countryside of the South Hams and Dartmoor National Park. ACCOMMODATION
A traditional entrance porch opens into the hallway with quarry tiled floor. A door opens to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has probably been the heart of this home for generations and continues to this day. Old flagstones and a solid stone lintel over the fireplace lend character and a high ceiling complements the generous proportions, which allow space for a good sized table. A pantry provides extra storage. There are a range of fitted cupboards and drawers with worktop over, inset with ceramic sink and a freestanding range cooker.
The dining room was a former barn attached to the house and is a wonderful space to entertain, with a vaulted ceiling featuring exposed beams and exposed stone walls. A dual access wood burning stove is shared with the living room. Door leads to Bedroom 3 (double)/Home Office or third reception room which has an external door giving access to the side. Another internal door from bedroom 3 / Home Office opens to the living room, which shares the dual opening wood burning stove and also boasts a window overlooking the garden with a Southerly aspect. A further internal door returns to the entrance hall. To the rear of the property is a large utility/boot room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and external door to the parking area. A shower room including a WC and basin completes the ground floor.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor with two double bedrooms overlooking the garden. Between them is the family bathroom with ball and claw style bath with shower over, pedestal basin and WC. Stairs lead to the second floor attic rooms, (restricted head room), featuring exposed roof timbers, a dormer window and wooden floor. There is the potential to convert into bedrooms subject to any necessary consents. OUTSIDE
The garden enjoys a high level of privacy and a Southerly aspect. A natural stone terrace provides a spot for al-fresco dining and the majority is laid to lawn. The summerhouse provides storage (greenhouse not included). SERVICES
