In need of modernisation this substantial end of terrace property offers huge potential and can be available with vacant possession and no onward chain. Currently arranged as rooms and bedsits with a lower floor one bedroom flat. We feel the house could be renovated to create an investment property or impressive residential dwelling. An internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the size of the property.
The property lies within the Adelaide Street conservation area and whilst this property is not listed it is of special architectural and historical interest. Famous architect and town planner John Foulston designed the houses in this area, in the early 19th Century and many historians consider this to be one of the best preserved areas of Foulston layout. This is due to the grid design, stucco render, recessed arches and limestone boundary walls. The area was originally designed as the first area to link both Stonehouse and Plymouth in the early part of the development of the City.
The accommodation is laid out in two sections with a lower ground floor flat and then the main house. Access to the lower floor can be through the main house, with a staircase below the main staircase to the house, or from the front with a self contained entrance. The lower floor includes a lounge, bedroom, kitchen and shower room. This level also has direct access to the courtyard garden. The garden is laid to concrete with a walled boundary and garage up and over door, that with a bit of work could create a parking space. To the front of the house are external steps leading to the main entrance. The main house has been used as a multi room let with the ground floor including shower rooms and bedsit, the first floor includes three rooms/bedsits and the top floor has a further two rooms. Due to the height of the house, the main room on the top floor enjoys views over The Millfields (Former Naval Hospital). Whilst in its current form the house has 7/8 bedrooms, we feel the house could be converted to an impressive five bedroom, family home with annex or flat let below. However, the layout is so large and flexible the possibilities are endless.
Whilst the property is mostly double glazed, the property is in need of renovation. The pictures displayed show the lower floor rooms, however a full refurbishment is required.
Locally the property has many advantages, with a 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 Adelaide Angels providing posts on local events, general local comments and litter picking, showing the true pride the community feel for this special location.
This property has huge potential, for any client seeking a investment, the property could revert back to a multi room let or flats, subject to necessary planning consent. However, we feel the property could also be converted back to a spectacular residential house, we have sold properties in the area recently and can see the huge potential available at this property.
