SUMMARY CLOSE TO THE SEA TO DEVELOP ON CITADEL ROAD - Investors and Developers will see the potential in this fabulous top-floor apartment. Representing a blank canvas, this property is crying-out to be reconfigured and modernised to make a fabulous investment property located at the heart of West Hoe and in close proximity to both the city centre and Plymouth Sound waterfront. Requiring complete renovation, this property represents a fine opportunity for modernisation and to instantly seal-in equity in this well-regarded and popular rental and holiday let area. 

AREA The property is situated on Citadel Road on West Hoe within close proximity to the waterfront of historic Plymouth Hoe, with its stunning views across Plymouth Sound, one of the worlds largest natural harbours, and close to the Barbican, which boasts an array of specialist shops, restaurants, cafes, the National Marine Aquarium. The whole area has a distinctly European feel because of the marinas, al fresco pavement cafes and waterfront bars and restaurants.

The area offers a range of local amenities which include a Post Office, newsagents, general store and doctor's surgery. Nearby is the emerging new coastal quarter at Millbay and the professional and commercial quarter of Plymouth City centre.
 

INVESTORS / DEVELOPERS The property requires full renovation and would benefit from reconfiguration to provide a large open-plan kitchen/living space. When modernised the property is likely to achieve a rental of c. £600pcm and benefits from views to the North and East over the city sky-scape and to the South and West towards Plymouth Sound and the Tamar Estuary. 

DETAIL Positioned within this imposing Georgian building, this apartment benefits from a top-floor location, a benefit of the share of freehold and the use of a shared garden and 2 x parking spaces located to the rear that are shared between the five apartments.
 

ENTRANCE LOBBY 8' 4" x 5' 8" (2.55m x 1.75m) The front door of the property opens to a large, naturally lit entrance lobby providing ample space for storage. The lobby feeds through a corridor and doorway to the rest of the main living areas of the property. 

KITCHEN 15' 7" x 8' 1" (4.75m x 2.47m) The kitchen benefits from south-facing views towards the Azure West development and overlooks the communal courtyard gardens and shared parking area to the rear of the property. The room is currently arranged to a single-run of traditional cabinets with oven and hob and under-counter space for appliances. The modern, gas-combi-boiler which provides central heating and hot water throughout the property is also housed in this room. 

SITTING ROOM 16' 7" x 13' 6" (5.07m x 4.12m) This large living space benefits from a large, double-width uPVC window overlooking the city to the north and towards Dartmoor to the north east. The room is laid to carpet with a large traditional period cast-iron fire-surround and large double doors leading to the bedroom. The room would benefit from opening either into the existing kitchen space or bedroom to provide a large, contemporary open-plan kitchen-living space. 

BEDROOM 13' 0" x 8' 3" (3.97m x 2.53m) The double bedroom is currently linked to the main siting room through a set of double doors and benefits from far reaching views to the north. The room is currently laid to carpet.

To the rear of the property can be found a communal garden space through which rear entry to the property can be found. There are also two off-road parking spaces located to the rear of the courtyard which are shared between apartments.
