SUMMARY DISCERNING DOWNSIZERS AND GREEN FINGERED ENTHUSIASTS LOOK NO FURTHER - A beautifully restored two double bedroom, former-miner's cottage located in Mannamead, set in the heart of Plymouth, benefitting from the feel of a private village location. An oasis of calm and perfect retreat for retirees or couples, this property would make an ideal home for those longing for a rural idyl yet requiring ready-access to the amenities of the city. 

DETAIL What a find - a rare opportunity to purchase a former-miner's cottage set in a village location in Mannamead.The property is situated within a secluded and tranquil area and is part of a row of six cottages that were built circa 1825.

The property has been renovated throughout to an extremely high standard and is presented in country-cottage style. Located on the end of terrace, it is positioned away from the road, down a set of steps which lead into the large garden and storm-porch located to the front of the property.

The slate-roofed, stone porch stretches across half of the frontage of the property and provides ample space for storage and hanging for coats and outdoor clothing. The porch feeds through a wooden front-door into a hallway with staircase to the front and large sitting room to the right. The sitting room is of good size, is carpeted in cream and features a large recessed stone fireplace with ample space for two good-sized sofa units. There is a large south-facing window which looks out onto the terraced garden beyond, ensuring that it is always well lit and creating a real feeling of space.

To the rear of the lounge is the kitchen which has a private rear aspect over the back yard with two sympathetically fitted uPVC windows and door leading to the rear. The kitchen boasts a range of stylish solid wood contemporary free-standing kitchen units with integrated oven and gas hob. There is also a separate pantry area located under the stairs where meters and the recently installed combi-boiler are located.

On the first floor is the main master bedroom, which has been knocked-through to provide a lovely and spacious bedroom, with ample room for wardrobes, cupboards and double bed. There is a traditional recessed cupboard and authentic cast-iron period fire-place surround. There are two good-sized windows which face south out over the gardens providing an uninterrupted view across the valley towards Mannamead. The second bedroom is of slightly smaller dimensions,facing to the rear of the property, but is of sufficient size to easily accommodate a double bed. Exposed roof trusses, weathered sill and cast-iron fire surround add to the period features that abound in this property. This bedroom faces over the rear yard across to a wall of green laurel bushes, holly and an array of colourful flowering climbers.The bathroom is fitted with a modern mixer-shower over bath, sink and WC and is laid to exposed polished wooden floorboards. 

GARDENS The generous gardens compliment this home beautifully and would suit applicants who enjoy life in the open air. The front gardens stretches in excess of 130 feet in length and are arranged over a series of terraces, including front lawn, patio seating area, and vegetable plot. Benefitting from a south facing aspect, the garden enjoys sunlight throughout the day allowing the mature shrubs, trees and flowers to thrive. Bordered by a combination of privet hedges, ivy, brush fence and low-level walls the garden is incredibly secure and private belying its urban location. There is a large potting shed located towards the end of the garden.

To the rear of the property are two stone storage sheds. This area can be accessed either through the house or by a pathway which runs to the side of the property. The current owners have utilised one of the sheds to house washing / drying machines. Benefitting from its end of terrace location, the back yard is larger than others in the terrace and there is potential for a further extension of the outbuildings to provide a workshop or additional storage (subject to the necessary planning consents). 

INVESTORS Properties in the terrace have rented well historically and would likely fetch in the region of £775-£800pcm. At the conservative end of the spectrum, this would provide an investor a healthy return of 5.3% gross at asking price.
