Located within this popular suburb about three miles North of Plymouth City Centre, this semi-detached, Victorian, character cottage is well served by the local shops and amenities of Crownhill Shops, whilst giving ease of access, via Tavistock road to both the city centre and the major employment centre that is Derriford Hospital and to Devon and Cornwall, via the A38.
The accommodation briefly comprises of: Entrance lobby, Living Room, Kitchen/Diner, Utility Room, W.C., Two Bedrooms, Bathroom.
The cottage stands on a long plot that includes: level, off-road parking to the front, and a gently sloping, southerly facing, rear garden, backing onto parkland and measuring approximately 70 feet in length. Mature trees to the rear boundary ensure a great deal of privacy.
The property would benefit from some cosmetic modernisation and upgrading of its second fittings, however, is already equipped with PVCu double glazing and gas central heating, whilst externally, the roof has been recovered and the elevations have been Canterbury spa-dashed. PVCu rainwater goods have also been added.
We consider that the improvements that we feel shall likely affect, have been taken into account by this very realistic guide price! The property is offered to the market with NO ONWARD CHAIN!
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.
PLYMOUTH Plymouth is a city with one of the largest natural harbours in the world.
