Property Description:

SITUATION The property is situated in the heart of 'Old Staddiscombe', a small village which forms a rural residential area amongst farmland between Plymstock and Down Thomas. Sandy coves and beaches can be found at Bovisand Beach (just under 2 miles), Wembury and Heybrook Bay. This is a little known quiet rural area, away from main thoroughfares but conveniently placed within only a few minutes' drive of the centre of Plymstock. Boasting a wide variety of amenities, Plymstock has the feel of a small town and includes; primary and secondary schools, supermarkets, health centre, independent shops, bank, pubs, take-aways and library. Situated on the edge of Plymouth Sound and the River Plym, Plymstock boasts a wide range of sporting clubs including rugby, cricket, football, sailing (including deep water marina) and other watersports such as SUP and kayaking.

The village of Down Thomas, with 'The Mussel Inn', Post Office and village shop is only a mile or so away and not much further are the beaches of Bovisand (less than 2 miles) and Wembury. Staddon Heights Golf Club with its panoramic views across Plymouth Sound is also within a mile or so. There is an extensive network of nearby footpaths giving access to some delightful rural, woodland and coastal areas. The nearby city of Plymouth boasts an historic waterfront, with cafes, restaurants and bars, and additional amenities such as shopping centre, major hospital, grammar schools, cinemas, theatres, mainline train station and international ferry port.

DESCRIPTION This detached house dates from the Edwardian era and once served as the former post office for the village of Staddiscombe. Sitting on a plot of circa one fifth of an acre, the property boasts a high level of privacy and whilst the house would benefit from modernisation, this is a wonderful opportunity to create an individual family home.

The property benefits from uPVC double glazing to the majority of windows and doors. The driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles and leads to a wooden garage.
