A versatile family home occupying a generous plot with extensive parking forecourt to the front and a large westerly facing garden to the rear.
Approached from the front, a tarmac driveway with parking area leads to the main entrance and a side gate accessing the rear. The front door opens to an entrance porch with a door in turn to the entrance hall where a dog leg staircase ascends to the first floor and doors lead to a kitchen (also with a side entrance) and a good sized living room; featuring a picture window and great balcony taking advantage of the stunning far reaching views towards Cornwall. A further door from the living room leads to a very useful fourth bedroom with en suite wet room. Upstairs, the landing leads to a family bathroom and three further bedrooms (two doubles), two of which also benefit from the far reaching views.
The rear garden is a terrific feature of this property, being a good size with desirable west facing aspect featuring a patio with sunken fish pond and waterfall feature, an orchard, further patio and good sized lawned area. PVCu double glazed doors from the garden also provide access to two very useful cellar rooms. This great property also benefits from PVCu double glazing and gas central heating.
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.
