Plymouth in England's South West is a charming yet busy city with a strong naval tradition. It is also a place where property seekers will be spoilt for choice. Property in Plymouth to buy or rent is always in demand, both with locals looking to move within the city, and with newcomers looking to relocate.
Situated on the Devon coast, Plymouth is divided into 20 wards, with private property types covering the entire property spectrum - from cosy, single-roomed flats through modern new build bungalows, to chic mews cottages, stylish townhouses, and elegant mansions (some with amazing sea views).
House prices in Plymouth can be as varied as the property choice on offer which means all budgets can be catered for. Property hunters hoping to find their new ideal home will be able to choose from detached properties, semi-detached, terraced houses, flats and luxury apartments to suit singles, couples and families.
Like the rest of England's South West, the area can see a lot of rain so new home seekers should be prepared for that. Fortunately, once relocated there, home buyers find the city has plenty to distract them from the wet weather!
The city is easy to get to by car, coach, rail, air and sea. Access by road is excellent: the M5, A38 Expressway, A374 and A386 all serve the city.
Plymouth boasts an eclectic choice of cafes, restaurants, pub and bars. Some ooze an incomparable traditional Devon, while others could grace any vibrant metropolis in the country. Plus there is plenty for the city's young crowd to enjoy at night.
