LOCATION The apartment is situated on Southside Street, running through the centre of the Barbican with it's fine array of restaurants, cafes, bars and bespoke boutiques together with the National Marine Aquarium and the Mayflower Steps from where the PiIgrim Fathers left for America in 1620.
The city centre is within easy reach with many amenities including Drake Circus shopping complex and the nationally renowned Theatre Royal. The A38 trunk road is 3.5 miles distance and links Cornwall to the M5 motorway at Exeter and the rest of the south west.
DESCRIPTION The property is accessed via a communal pedestrian gate half way along Southside Street and opens into a wonderfully light and open communal courtyard.
Flat E lies on the top floor of the building and shares it's communal entrance door with one apartment on the first floor. There is an imposing timber newel, captain's mast, staircase and wood side panels rising to the upper floors where the apartment is entered via a spacious landing with views over the rear courtyard area.
Internally the property offers a superb amount of potential and would make an ideal first time buy or investment opportunity with spacious accommodation and a wealth of character and period features. The living accommodation is generous in proportion with a comfortable sitting/dining room and bay Crittal windows and secondary glazing enjoying a fine aspect over the cobbled streets of The Barbican. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room again offers much potential and is currently fitted with a comprehensive range of base units.
Further accommodation includes two double bedrooms including a master bedroom with bay Crittall windows and secondary glazing to the front aspect and a shower room/WC which would benefit from some upgrading.
