Description This duplex apartment, within this iconic Plymouth landmark 1970's build development is positioned immediately on the water's edge within a secure gated community. In fact, such is the apartment's immediacy to the Tamar Estuary, the previous owner used to delight in hanging lobster pots over his ground floor balcony into the water beneath to catch the crustaceans! Resultantly, this duplex is an incredibly rare opportunity for somebody to acquire something that will no longer be built in the city.
An unbeatable waterside position, sandwiched between the famous landmarks of The Robert Falcon Scott Memorial and The Royal William Yard (both visible from either balcony!) Comprising: Car port, store, porch, cloakroom, W.C. Reception hall, lounge/diner, fitted kitchen, landing, four double bedrooms and a bathroom. The property offers double glazing and electric central heating. The living room, dining area and the two water facing bedrooms open onto balconies that provide absolute uninterrupted views across the neighbouring marina, the Tamar Estuary and on to Mount Edgecumbe Park. Also the rarity of having your own car port with a waterside home should not be disregarded
Whether you are relocating to the Westcountry as a professional or retiree or are treating yourselves to a special property we cannot recommend this home more highly. Indeed, if you are a Plymouth resident who has dreamt of owning an apartment in this milestone development next to Mayflower Marina then this is your "once in a lifetime" opportunity. The "Wow Factor" delivered by the views from the property are simply breathtaking!
The spacious accommodation includes a plush fully integrated Italian fitted kitchen, although other parts of the duplex would benefit from some minor updating. There is no onward chain!
Stonehouse Stonehouse, was one of three towns that were amalgamated into modern-day Plymouth. West Stonehouse was a village that is within the current Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in Cornwall. It was destroyed by the French in 1350. The terminology used in this article refers to the settlement of East Stonehouse which is on the Devon side of the mouth of the Tamar estuary, and will be referred to as Stonehouse.
Settlement in the area goes back to Roman times and a house made of stone was believed to have stood near to Stonehouse Creek. However other stories relate to land owned in the 13th century by Robert the Bastard. This land subsequently passed to the Durnford family through marriage to the Edgcumbe family in the 14th and 15th centuries. The site of the original settlement of Stonehouse is now partly occupied by the complex of Princess Yachts. One wall survives as a listed building.
During the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries the areas of Durnford Street, Emma Place and Caroline Place were home to many of the West Country's top-ranking admirals, doctors and clergy. Union Street, originally built across marshland, was for almost a century the centre of the city's night life with about a hundred pubs, a music hall and many other attractions. Much of it was destroyed by bombing in World War II. After the war the area between Union Street and the dock has been used by small factories, storage, car dealers and repairers. Since 2002 many of those buildings and yards have been cleared and are being replaced by contemporary residential buildings
