Built circa 1928, this classic art-deco terraced house lies in this ever-popular residential suburb, close to the excellent primary schooling of Hyde Park Road and Montpellier and local amenities. A stroll down the hill takes you to one of the entrances to Central Park, with its expansive parkland, it's recreational areas, it's pitch and put golf course, it's skate park, Home Park football stadium and the sporting/gym/pool facilities, delivered by The Plymouth Life Centre. Retaining scores of period, art-deco features including four lovely tiled (including cherry, "Royal Doulton blue" and "teapot brown" tiled examples) fireplaces (with an original, mirrored over-mantel on the dining room fireplace), an original stained glass vestibule door, an original, arched stained glass landing window, original glazed display cabinets, ceiling cornicing, stripped original floorboards, stripped original doors with original door furniture, some bay windows to the front and all of the original carved mahogany staircase features. The house is sympathetically and superbly presented, whilst boasting PVCu double glazing, G.C.H. fired by a Worcester gas combination boiler, a "quarry tiled" utility room floor and smart fitted carpets elsewhere. The kitchen has been relocated from the scullery into the larger, breakfast room and is equipped with shaker style, oak cabinetry, incorporating a fitted oven and hob. The previous scullery now forms a roomy, bright and airy utility room. The sanitary-ware in the first-floor bathroom and separate W.C. is contemporary and includes a shower above the bath. The accommodation briefly comprises of: Entrance Vestibule, Reception Hall, Living Room, Dining Room, Fitted Kitchen, large Utility Room, Landing, Three Bedrooms, Bathroom, W.C and a Storage Cellar. The home offers a southerly facing courtyard garden with a cold-water tap, which has been tastefully and extensively landscaped, whilst featuring a nice deck accessible from both the utility room and the rear porch, beyond the dining room. There is a sizeable slate chippings patio, flanked by railway sleepers and a flagstone slate/slab pathway. The courtyard/garden is fully enclosed and has a gate accessing the cobbled service lane to the rear. Perhaps somewhat unexpectedly, the house offers a sizeable storage cellar with a typical ceiling height of 4' 10'', (with additional crawl/shallow storage space, thereafter) that's equipped with power & light that provides ideal stowage of surfboards, bikes etc. The cellar is readily accessible from the garden.
PEVERELL Two of the main roads are named Peverell Park Road and Weston Park Road. The area now consists mostly of Edwardian terraced houses. Peverell borders Central Park, often known as "the green lung" of Plymouth which is a very popular recreational area for, and is home to Plymouth Life Centre and Plymouth Argyle's Home Park football stadium. Primary schooling is provided by Montpelier and Hyde Park Primary School (whilst the Hyde Park area offers a popular shopping parade). Mutley Plain and Plymouth Station are considered to be within walking distance, by most. The Hyde Park Pub, on the periphery of Peverell, is a popular gastro/local pub. Peverell is seen by residents as a safe solid and central area with a good quality housing stock and few social problems. The terms on which the land was sold for development at the turn of the twentieth century stipulated that no licensed premises (pubs), should be built on the land, as the seller was a strict abstainer. This has resulted in the district having a residential atmosphere.
