A beautifully presented and extended detached home set in a double plot position. This original 1920/30's detached home has been extended to provide a most spacious four bedroom home with over 2000 sq ft of accommodation, an integral garage, substantial parking and gardens to the front and rear.
The property is accessed to the front with steps up to a covered entrance opening into a vestibule with room for coats and shoes and a doorway leading through to the inner hallway. From here stairs lead up to the bedroom accommodation on the first floor and doors lead off to the ground floor living accommodation to three sides.
A bright and welcoming Living Room is found to the front, benefitting from a bay window which floods light into the area with a feature fireplace with wooden surround and open iron grate.
The Study is found adjacent and faces the front elevation. A good size room that could also be an occasional bedroom, benefitting from a window to the front and a continuation of decoration of smooth plaster walls in a neutral colourwash to picture rail and carpeted flooring.
It's hard not to be impressed by the extended Kitchen/Dining space found to the rear of the property. Its high vaulted ceiling with multiple velux windows, French doors onto the rear patio and solid Oak flooring offer ample, versatile family space. The kitchen area is separated by a large breakfast bar incorporating a one and a half bowl stainless sink with drainer and provides a matching range of base and wall mounted units in modern shaker styling on four sides of the room - offering great storage and worksurface space over. A coloured tile splashback 'ties-in' the room whilst we find two windows to the side giving the area additional light. Integral appliances include a four-ring hob, gas wok burner with stainless steel extractor fan over, dual oven and grill and space and plumbing for freestanding white goods.
A door to the side of the room opens into the Utility area located to the rear of the attached garage and offers additional worksurface space, units and plumbing for white goods and stainless steel utility sink and drainer with an external door to the rear and internal doors to the garage and W.C.
The W.C is of a good size and whilst it currently comprises of a low level w.c and a pedestal wash hand basin, it could include a shower if required.
On the first floor we find the bedroom accommodation which comprises four double sized rooms, the smaller of which also offers built-in storage. The Master bedroom is found over the garage and offers windows to front and rear and access to an en-suite shower room with quality white suite of W/C and hand washbasin, tiled walls and corner shower cubicle with power shower to one side.
The family bathroom is also found on this level and comprises of an obscurely glazed window to the rear elevation, close couple w.c, pedestal hand wash basin and a panelled shower bath with electric power shower over. A handy airing cupboard is also found off the landing adjacent to the Master Bedroom.
Externally the property further impresses, with a large double plot offering garden and tarmac driveway parking for multiple vehicles to the front - large enough for motorhomes, caravans etc.
Access to the side via a gate leads through to a spacious garden currently split into two substantial areas. A central boundary offers protection and shelter for a productive vegetable garden with raised beds and brick built based 'Victorian style' greenhouse currently in situ that is not part of the sale price but available under separate negotiation. A further area shrouded in blossoming rose bushes offers a shaded area in which to sit looking down the landscaped garden towards the rear of the house. Dotted with a mixture of fruit laden trees and mature bedded plants, a sizeable landscaped area laid to lawn is interspersed with sections of natural meadowland that leads through towards an expansive patio that is inset block laid and spans the width of the property - a great place in which to entertain or simply enjoy this natural oasis in the heart of the City.
Close by good transport links in and out of the City can be found with local shops and amenities well catered for in Higher Compton with a Cooperative, Tesco Metro and various other shops.
The property benefits from PVCu double glazing and gas central heating with modern condensing boiler and owned solar panels providing electricity on a high tariff, whilst also providing hot water for the home.
HIGHER COMPTON The earliest evidence of man in Compton, is from around 3000 BC. At this time, Neolithic stone axes which have been found in Compton. In 1086 the Doomsday book had an entry for Compton. Compton is mentioned in 1238 as it was on the route to the new Plym Bridge. By 1730 Compton was part of the Culme estate, with a population of around fifty. Hereafter, Compton began to grow. At this stage there were not many buildings, of these The Compton Inn is probably the oldest, with walls up to four feet thick, it was an old farmhouse, then a granary, a tanners and a cobblers shop. One of two other local pubs, The Rising Sun, has a great reputation amongst locals, as a "gastro pub".
At the turn of the century the bustling little village was still mainly agricultural, with cows, market gardens, sheep, goats, pigs and horses still in evidence. Lower Compton, in particular, still has a very, "village like" ambience. Compton now offers a Tesco Express store, a post office, a DIY store, a bakery, hairdressers and Co-Op store.
In 1896 Compton was incorporated into the Plymouth district. It has always been an extremely popular suburb, neighboring the highly sought areas of Mannamead and Hartley on its South west, west and north western boundaries.
From the early 1900s onward, Lower Compton had a school. Rebuilt in the 1970's, Compton C of E Primary School is considered by many, to be one of the best in Plymouth.
