Tenure: Share of Freehold

Plymouth Hoe is adjacent to the seafront and commands magnificent views of the natural harbour that is Plymouth Sound incorporating Drake's Island, Fort Bovisand in the east and west across to Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall. Plymouth Hoe is perhaps best known for the fact that Sir Francis Drake is believed to have played his famous game of bowls there, just prior to his defeat of the Spanish Armada. A statue of Drake is erected on the Hoe for this reason. A prominent landmark on the Hoe is Smeaton's Tower. This is the upper portion of John Smeaton's Eddystone Lighthouse, which was originally built on the Eddystone Rocks in 1759. It was dismantled in 1877 and moved, stone by stone, to the Hoe where it was re-erected.

The impressive lounge/dining room has a pair of arched sash windows taking the magnificent views to the full across Plymouth Sound, towards Staddiscombe, Drake's Island and beyond. There are two Juliet balconies with original working shutters, a feature fireplace in pale grey marble with slate hearth, marble kerb and inset gas coal effect fire, ornate moulded cornice to ceiling with centre ceiling rose, attractive floor standing radiators, deep skirting boards, book shelving to either side of the chimney recess with dwarf cupboards below, TV point and telephone point.

The galley kitchen is fitted with a range of high gloss fronted base and wall units to two sides incorporating cupboards and drawers with granite work surfaces over, integrated appliances to include dishwasher, eye level microwave and oven below, underhung stainless steel sink and space for larder fridge and freezer. There is access to a utility area (restricted height) which is fitted to two sides with ample storage and additional preparation area.

The master bedroom is of a delightful size and is finished in neutral shades with wiring for TV, original high sash window and an en-suite shower room which offers a corner shower with sliding glass doors and wall mounted shower head, dual flush w.c., pedestal wash hand basin, open shelving providing storage, a cupboard housing the Glow Worm boiler (serviced July 2016), heated towel rail and fully tiled walls and floors.

The guest bedroom is a nice size double room with original style sash window looking towards the city. The family bathroom adjacent has a 'pear shaped' bath with shower over, glazed shower screen and Grohe shower and taps, towel rail, recessed sink into vanity unit with storage below, recessed lights, dual flush w.c. and fully tiled walls and floor.

Within the L-shaped entrance hall there is an entry phone system for the front door and a cupboard on landing provides storage.
