Tenure: Freehold

Built in about 1922, this classic, traditional and elegant semi-detached residence occupies a delightful, level and highly sought-after location at the beginning of the popular Lockington Avenue, which is a one way road.

The property has a plethora of original character features including quarry tiled floor, coved ceilings, fireplaces and multi-paned windows.

The charming accommodation, on the ground floor, comprises of an entrance porch with quarry tiled floor and double doors leading through to a delightful hallway. The sitting room has a splendid bay, fireplace feature, coved ceiling, multi-paned window and a multi-paned door to the side garden. There is a large separate family room, a large dining room with built-in dresser, a kitchen/breakfast room and a rear conservatory.

On the first floor are five bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate shower room, both with modern white suites. There is a pretty galleried landing with original stained glass window.

The property has gas fired central heating, a security system and has recently had the insulation upgraded, particularly to the first floor (this included re-plastering and lining of most the walls and ceilings upstairs).

Externally a long drive which adjoins lawns and trees, leads to a large garage with remote controlled door and an inspection pit. A door leads from the garage to the workshop which has steps up to a first floor storage level. There is also an adjoining panelled office/store with a multi-paned window. This whole building could be converted to provide a separate office/annexe, subject to the usual Building Regulations and Planning consents.

Immediately to the rear of the property is a beautiful level lawn with adjoining potting shed and particularly well stocked herbaceous borders. A gate leads to a truly wonderful and wild 'secret garden' which was formerly an orchard and is now scattered with daffodils, primroses and there is a greenhouse. The gardens are undoubtedly a fabulous feature of the property.

To the front of the property is a beautiful established Magnolia tree with a timber gate and paved path leading to the black and white 'Tudor style' entrance porch.

The excellent range of local facilities include the nearby tennis courts, sought-after primary schools, senior schools including Plymouth College, Devonport High School for Girls and Plymouth High School for Girls, easy access to the A38, Dartmoor National Park, main railway station and regular public transport to the City Centre some two miles distant.
