Milehouse, Plymouth

2 Bed
2 Bath
1 Reception
Located within the well-kept and highly sought-after Explorer Court development, this first floor apartment as the unusual benefit of being in an elevation position but having a level access from the rear of the property and therefore enjoying the benefit of a ground floor situation.

With its own allocated parking space directly outside the entrance, the property is entered via telephone entry system into a communal area with the apartments door just a short walk from here.

On entering it is apparent that the property has been well maintained and improved with neutral decoration and a mix of hard wearing laminate and solid wood flooring found throughout. A centrally located hallway provides access to various accommodation, with the surprising light and spacious open plan living/dining space found to the rear with roof top views, a focal electric fire with wooden surround and generous double opening window. The dining area offers a good space for dining furniture and has stylish French doors opening to a Juliet balcony.

The Kitchen is fitted with a matching range of base and wall mounted units in a contemporary light beech effect with roll edge work surfaces, incorporating a stainless-steel sink drainer unit with mixer tap, space and plumbing for a washing machine, integral fan assisted oven with electric hob and extractor hood over, integrated fridge freezer and dual aspect windows.

The family bathroom comprises a low-level w.c, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with shower screen and a mains fed shower over with an obscurely glazed window. The apartment benefits from two double bedrooms with the second bedroom overlooking the side elevation, the master bedroom has a useful modern en suite shower room comprising a pedestal wash hand basin, low level w.c and modern tiled shower cubicle with wall mounted shower.

This leasehold apartment sits within very well managed grounds and being away from the main road provides a quiet situation.

An ideal first-time purchase or perhaps those looking to downsize. The property is vacant with no onward chain and an early viewing is highly recommended.

MILEHOUSE Milehouse is a late Victorian, Edwardian and 1930s suburb. It is now notable for being the depot base of the local City Bus company and has a popular, Wetherspoons pub. Formerly it was famous for the site of Outland House, the large family home of Robert Falcon Scott, who led the tragic British expedition to the South Pole and died on the return journey. The area borders Plymouth's huge Central Park home of The Plymouth Life Centre, and Home Park, the ground of Plymouth Argyle football club. It is a reputable area with good facilities and is convenient to the city centre, the parkland (there’s also an environmental park in the suburb) and the main road in and out of town. Stoke Community College, Stuart Road Primary School, Devonport High School for Girls, Devonport High School for Boys and Montpelier Primary School, are all within a mile of the suburb
