THE OLD SIGNAL HOUSE
A truly unique property positioned on the cliffs with panoramic views out over the City of Plymouth, Plymouth Sound and the English Channel. This wonderful home is part of a conversion of an outstanding coastal landmark at the entrance to Plymouth Sound. Formerly the home of the families from the Eddystone Lighthouse, which is now fully automated, the house more recently was used to house the controls for the light house during the period of semi automation. Set within the Rame Peninsula, which is an area of outstanding beauty on the Cornish Heritage Coastline, The Old Signal House is steeped in history and a rare gem to come onto the market.

The house is approached from the parking area at the end of approximately one mile of access lane, leading from the village of Cawsand. There is a wooded, stepped walk way down to the building, (the walk way has a firm handrail and exterior light system running the full length from the parking area.) which has been converted into three dwellings, The Old Signal House, gate within the boundary wall brings you into the private grounds. There is a row of storage cupboards running along the interior of the wall, ideal for the storage of logs and outdoor equipment.
ENTRANCE
The house is entered through a porch/ boot room, going up two steps into a beautiful Sitting Room.
SITTING ROOM
The room is incredibly light, being South facing with windows looking out to the dramatic seascape both to the South and to the West. This is the heart of the house. All three bedrooms lead off from the Sitting room, with the staircase down to the Kitchen and Dining room providing a beautiful feature to the room, All the windows have been upgraded and are sympathetic to the conversion and double glazed. To the far end of the Sitting room is the Master Bedroom suite, again facing south.

BEDROOM 3/ STUDY
Also leading from the Sitting room is the Third En-suite Bedroom, a spacious double, also with a beautifully fitted wardrobe and a matching shower room.

This would be a really fun hiding place for children.
DINING ROOM
The Dining room accompanies the Kitchen on this level, both looking out over the panoramic sea views with a solid fuel burner to provide a really toastie feel during all seasons. There is a very attractive colonial styled, hard wood front door between the Kitchen and the Dining room that leads directly out onto the private patio and the lawned garden space to the front of the house, this is a communal space with minimal shared upkeep, fronted by a rough grassland with heather and gorse at the top of the cliffs. The front lawn is the perfect space to sit and watch the world go by, there is a succession of battleships from the Plymouth Naval Base, as well as copious amounts of other sea traffic passing by on their travels.
PARKING AREA AND OUTSIDE SPACE
There is extensive parking space at the top of the walkway down to the property. This area also houses the bins for all three apartments, each having its own space where the refuse collectors come on a weekly basis. The storage tanks for the oil fired central heating are also housed here, making it easy for deliveries, when necessary. To the far end of this area is the communal treatment plant for the sewerage waste.

Sharing the stepped walk way down from the parking area. The Old Signal House has its own private garden, as ell as benefiting from the shared communal gardens and space. To the front of the house the private patio provides great space for al fresco dining, The garden to the side of the house runs to the cliff boundary and has been prepared as a vegetable garden, ideal for entertaining and relaxing. There are many ways to incorporate this area into your lifestyle and needs. The communal area also extends to the roof. All three properties each have a wooden exterior staircase to the rear of the house, which leads up to a spectacular roof space. Extending over the whole building and secured with a metal perimeter fence, the shared roof space has incredible views and offers a fun place to entertain or to just simply wile the hours away in peace.

This versatile property has so much to offer all the family. It is surprisingly sheltered and protected from the elements. Fantastic firework displays can be seen and enjoyed from the Plymouth Hoe at fiesta times. There is a vast selection of birds that visit the gardens and cliffs. A real feature for the keen ornithologist, as well as other wildlife. This is also the walker/ trekkers dream location, straight out of the front door and onto the walks of the Heritage Coastline so no need to use the car. There is a little known sandy beach just around the corner and a virtually private access path directly to it. To the right of the property is a heliport which is occasionally used for accessing the Eddystone light House.
