SPACIOUS and VERSATILE PROPERTY This attractive home will appeal to buyers looking for a spacious home in a convenient location that could be changed to create a spacious family home over three floors with a self-contained apartment (subject to the necessary consents and Planning).

A delightful Grade II* Listed Georgian residence in a historic and popular location close to Plymouth Hoe and the historic Barbican area, and within walking distance of Plymouth's thriving shopping centre. 'Athenaeum Street' provides an oasis of tranquillity close to the hustle and bustle of Plymouth's historic Barbican and the nearby Hoe. There are many facilities within walking distance of the property as well as easy access to all local amenities. Built around 1825, this elegant Grade II* Listed, mid-terrace property has been comprehensively maintained by the current owners who have run the property as a guest house for the last 14 years.
