Tenure: Leasehold

A charming and spacious character ground floor apartment within a Grade II Listed building located within the heart of Plymouth`s historic Barbican, a moments` walk from the waterfront, The Hoe and the City Centre. `New Street` is part of a maze of wonderful cobbled streets that are spread through the area with hidden gardens, galleries packed with character and charm.

The property was formerly two dwelling houses believed to have been the north eastern corner of a 60 acre site that accommodated the late 14th Century development of the Franciscan or Grey Friars.

Thereafter, they were lived in by, at times, a staggering number of people. Around 1850, New Street, which then had no drainage, had some 600 people living in its 43 houses, 26 of which had no privacy or W.C.s.

From New Street a panelled timber door with small glazed top panel and brass door furniture leads into an entrance vestibule with dado rail to each side, timber panelling below and timber panelled door into inner hallway with a continuation of dado rail with wooden panelling below, picture rail and doors off to all rooms.

The sitting room is a most attractive room with twin sash windows and delightful wooden shutter blinds, secondary glazing to the front of the property, two wall mounted up-lighters, attractive recessed cupboard with arched glazed doors, shelving and dwarf panelled cupboards below. There is a TV point, telephone point and a pair of glazed French doors leading through to the dining room with picture rail, a door returning to the hallway, a radiator, a pair of corner cupboards and wall mounted uplighters. A glazed panelled door leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The kitchen comprises a comprehensive range of white base units to three sides incorporating cupboards and drawers with granite effect roll edge worktop over. There is also an inset stainless steel sink with single drainer and chrome mixer tap, integrated appliances to include newly fitted induction hob with extractor over, fan assisted oven and grill under, automatic dishwasher, washing machine and a larder fridge with freezer below, tiled splashback, a range of matching wall cupboards to one side with two spotlights under, wall mounted Brittany boiler servicing the central heating and hot water, a double radiator, ceramic tiled floor and three spotlights to ceiling on circular base. A half glazed `Georgian style` door leads to the paved rear courtyard which enjoys a south facing aspect and provides a delightful area for alfresco dining, a private entertaining area with ample room for table, chairs, pots, etc.

The master bedroom is a delightful double bedroom with sash window overlooking the courtyard garden, double radiator under and a recessed fitted wardrobe providing hanging rail with shelf above. The guest bedroom faces to the front of the property and has a sash window with secondary glazing, picture rail, two unusual slimline cupboards at each end of the room and a radiator.

The bathroom comprises a four piece white suite which incorporates a twin grip panelled bath with `Victorian style` chrome mixer taps and shower handset over, tiled splashback, pedestal wash hand basin with mirror and shaver point over, low level w.c. with four mirrored bathroom cabinets above providing ample storage, and a corner shower with thermostatic adjustable shower, two fully tiled walls, glazed screen and door.
