Located in this sought-after area of Crownhill this surprisingly spacious semi-detached home is available with NO ONWARD chain and vacant possession. The property offers a well laid-out internal space that is clean and tidy yet is in need of some modernisation to update the electric and heating system in particular (quotes available to view from reputable local suppliers). With this in mind, the property offers a great opportunity to purchase and modernise to provide a most pleasing 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.
The fort was one of many Palmerston Forts built around Plymouth, as a defence for the dockyard at Devonport against the French. The construction of these forts was eventually found to be unnecessary and as such they have been called "Palmerston's Follies". Crownhill Fort has now been restored as a tourist attraction and its guns are fired more often now, than they ever were in anger. For a long time Crownhill was predominantly a garrison area with Crownhill and Plumer barracks and more recently Seaton Barracks and demolished finally in the late 1990s.
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.
