DESCRIPTION Located in this level, straight avenue in one of Plymouth's most 'family friendly' and popular residential suburbs offering easy access to the amenities of Crownhill shopping centre, the A38, Derriford Hospital, a Marks and Spencer's food outlet and Plymouth City centre some three miles away, it is perhaps the access to excellent local schooling that has attracted families to the suburb? Local Primary schools within a mile of this house include, Widey Court, Eggbuckland Vale and St Edwards Primary schools, whilst secondary school children are catered for by St Boniface boy's school and Eggbuckland Community College.
This 1940's built semi-detached home was only purchased, as a "home for life", by the current owners, eighteen months ago. The previous owner, lived in the house for 50 years and the house subsequently needed complete refurbishment/renovation. The high standard of refurbishment reflects the fact that our clients expected to stay here for many years, however their circumstances have now changed! Externally, the house has been re-rendered and has new PVCu double glazed windows and doors, most of the drainage/downpipes have been renewed and the PVC barge boards, gutters and fascia boards were replaced approximately 3 years ago. There is a driveway for three cars behind double gates leading to an excellent single garage. The rear garden features herringbone brick pathways and is level with patios, lawns and fruit and vegetable areas and feature a beautiful secret garden complete with a deck and pergola. The garden measure approximately 80ft in length.
Internally the home has been re-wired, the boiler has been replaced, a new central heating system installed and the home has been redesigned. Upstairs the original small bathroom and toilet have been opened up into a large, beautiful family sized bathroom, whilst on the ground floor, a cloakroom has been added and the original breakfast room and scullery have been opened up into a stunning fitted kitchen/breakfast room incorporating an integrated dishwasher, washing machine, double oven and grill and hob with filter canopy. The kitchen includes a pull out pantry, saucepan drawers and appliance spaces and smart worktops. The property has been beautifully redecorated throughout with lovely floor coverings have been introduced including solid Oak floor in the hallway, conservatory, lounge and dining room and high quality carpeting elsewhere. The living room features a magnificent Victorian style fireplace with an inset living flame gas fire and the dining room features a multi-fuel burner with a distressed effect mantel piece over.
Our Director Darren Lawson described the property as looking like a 'new pin' when he saw it for the first time. We are certain you shall not be disappointed if you choose to view this fine home.
CROWNHILL Was originally known as Knackersknowle, meaning "the hill of the knacker's yard". In 1860 a fort was built on a high piece of land, just to the north west of the village, on the site of a building called Crown Hill, presumably because of its dominating position overlooking all the surrounding area. The village and surrounding area eventually adopted the same name. This mostly 1930''s suburb grew around the junction of the A386 Tavistock Road and the A374 road (later the A38 and now the B3413) from Plympton to Saltash Passage. Following realignment of the A386 in the 1970s, the old Tavistock road has been isolated and renamed Morshead Road. There is a pub, a M &S food outlet, a post office, a few convenience stores, many takeaways and an Indian restaurant. Crownhill is the home of the divisional police headquarters and a Catholic boy's comprehensive school. Primary schools include Eggbuckland Vale, St Edwards, Widey Court. Notre Dame Catholic Girls School, is located within 1.5 miles of Crownhill. There is also a large fire station and close by a big garden centre. The district is very popular because it is very close to the A38 Parkway/Devon Expressway and is near to the local general hospital at Derriford without being so far from the city centre, four miles south, that it is isolated and inaccessible as are so many of Plymouth's satellite suburbs.
