Halford and Homes are delighted to present to the market this exquisite GRADE II listed end of terrace home. The property has been sympathetically restored by the current vendors and has been completed to a very high standard, we highly recommend an internal viewing to appreciate the size and standard of accommodation available.
Built circa 1830 the property is both GRADE II listed and lies within the Adelaide Street conservation area due to its special architectural and historical interest. Famous architect and town planner John Foulston designed the houses in the early 19th Century and the area to many historians is considered one of the best preserved areas of Foulston layout. This is due to the grid design, stucco render, recessed arches, sliding sash windows and limestone boundary walls and originally designed as the first area to link both Stonehouse and Plymouth in the early part of the development of the city.
The property itself is an imposing end of terrace house that has retained the original external features to include the stucco render and has been tastefully decorated in grey. Access to the property can be via the main front entrance, leading onto Adelaide Street or side access onto Battery Street. Accessing from the side entrance you'll initially enter the main hallway with sweeping staircase, access to all principle reception rooms and also to the rear courtyard. Moving to the rear of the property is the high quality kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen includes matching wooden base units, a solid wooden work top, large range style freestanding oven and belfast sink with spring tap. This room also has a window to the east elevation overlooking the rear courtyard garden and ample space for a decent sized breakfasting room table. Moving to the front of the property and you have a very impressive reception space that includes a section providing access from the front entrance, dining area and lounge area. This room includes high ceilings, sash style windows with replacement inner shutters and metal pillars believed to date back to Devonport Dockyard in the 19th Century. This room is vast and a fantastic space for entertaining and from this room you can also find the ground floor cloakroom/utility room with toilet, wash hand basin and cupboard to include washing machine and tumble dryer. Take the sweeping staircase from the ground to first floor and heading to the rear of the property is the third bedroom with window facing to the west elevation. The main landing has a window also to west elevation and a decent sized storage cupboard. An additional smaller staircase then leads back to the main house with second bedroom and modern fitted shower room. The front of the property is another impressive space, with main bedroom having dual aspect to the front and side, the owners have created an amazing space with free standing bath to the side of the room. The ceilings are particularly special with vaulted spaces and library style ladder providing access to the mezzanine level that is currently being used as a music room. The future owners could use their imagination and use this space for a multitude of uses. Externally the property can be accessed directly from Battery Street or Adelaide Street, the rear of the property has a pretty courtyard area that the owners have used for entertaining in the Spring, Summer and Autumn. They have also utilised the rear of the garden with large double gates providing secure parking for two cars.
As the property is GRADE II listed it has retained the wooden sash style windows that have also been upgraded internally with shutters. A modern gas central heating system and upgraded electrical work promote the extent of work completed by the current vendors.
Located in Stonehouse the local area has had a high level of gentrification over the last decade with many of the properties being purchased and renovated by new people moving into the area. The owners say that people in the area get a real sense of buying into history when they move to the area. Locally the property has many advantages, the first is the street to the side (Battery Street) is also the main pedestrian route to Millbay Marina in turn providing access to The Hoe and Barbican or the Western Peninsula of Stonehouse and Royal William Yard via the South West Coastal Path. Located just to the North of the property is The Millfields, the old Royal Naval Hospital that is now a mixture of residential apartments, houses and commercial premises or offices. The closest amenities are on Union Street with local shops and boutique style shops whilst it also has a large Aldi convenience store. Just a ten minute walk and you'll be in the City Centre. The local area has a real sense of community, including a facebook page called Adealide Angels providing posts on local events, general local comments and litter picking, showing the true pride the community feel for this special location.
Completed to such a high standard the owners will be sad to leave the property, however very pleased in the knowledge someone will enjoy this truly special home. Available with no onward chain we highly recommend an internal viewing. Please call us on 01752 418104.
