Property Description: SITUATION
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, 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 4.5 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. Plymouth has at least five yacht marinas including Sutton Harbour, Mayflower, Plymouth Yacht Haven, Queen Anne's Battery and King Point, providing an excellent base for exploring the South West's many fantastic beaches and anchorages, or further afield to France and the Channel Islands.
Communication links in the area are excellent, with the A38 Devon Expressway providing dual carriageway links to the M5 at Exeter, or Cornwall across the Tamar. There is a mainline train station, providing direct links to London Paddington in just over 3 hours, whilst Exeter's International Airport about an hour's drive away provides a wide selection of services to UK and international destinations, including daily flights to London City Airport. DESCRIPTION
Situated at the end of a private road, this handsome semi-detached Edwardian home retains many period details within well proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows. In brief the accommodation provides four bedrooms (three doubles and a good sized single), two bathrooms (including an en-suite shower room), a kitchen/breakfast room, large utility, conservatory and downstairs WC. Outside, the gardens wrap around the property and there is a double garage with driveway providing additional parking (total plot size is approximately one sixth of an acre). The property has further potential and could be extended to the rear or by a loft conversion (subject to any necessary consents). The property also boasts gas central heating and double glazing.
From the front entrance, the property is entered via an enclosed porch into the hallway which features waxed floorboards, dado rail and cornice. Stairs lead to the first floor and doors open to the two reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room. The front reception room is currently used as the sitting room and features period details including a decorative cornice, picture rail and fireplace with white marble mantel and supports, metal grate and slate hearth. A large bay window overlooks the front garden and driveway. The second reception room also boasts a fireplace with wooden mantel and surround inset with decorative tiles. A window overlooks the garden and hatchway connects to the kitchen.
The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from a Rangemaster cooker (five ring gas hob, two electric ovens and grill), a range of floor and wall mounted cupboards, integrated dishwasher and undercounter fridge, airing cupboard and space for a table and chairs. The large utility room (with Perspex roof), is accessed from the rear of the kitchen/breakfast room and offers potential area to extend into. There is space and plumbing for both a washing machine and dryer (vented) with a downstairs cloakroom (WC and basin). Double doors open into the conservatory which in turn opens to the garden.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms. A double to the front with built-in wardrobes and period fireplace, a good sized single to the front and two doubles to the rear (one with en-suite shower room) which have views over the garden to Hardwick woods. The family bathroom has been styled to complement the period of the house and features a freestanding bath with ball and claw feet, pedestal basin and WC with wainscoting to the lower walls. OUTSIDE
