Full description

Planning consent for 7 luxury apartments and commercial premises. Lately used as a restaurant and living accommodation. Unobstructed views of Plymouth Sound, The Historic Hoe, Citadel and towards Sutton Harbour.

Location - In an iconic and strategic position on the east side of Plymouth Sound, this is possibly the most important landmark position on the City's waterfront. The site is one of the main features on the approach to Plymouth by water but equally it is a landmark position in the important vista from Plymouth Hoe Promenade. The building lies on a promontory on the peninsula which was formerly occupied by the Ministry of Defence for its strategic advantages and is separated from the City of Plymouth by a corner of the Sound and the westernmost portion of the Cattewater. Just above the property is the historic Mount Batten artillery
tower, dating from 1652 Grade II* listed and a scheduled ancient monument.

Over the last few years the trend has been for increasing numbers of buyers to consider Plymouth as a destination. The steady restoration and development of Royal William Yard, Millbay, the Hoe foreshore, Sutton Harbour and parts of
Mount Batten leaves this as one of the best remaining positions available.

Seawings links well to the South West Coast Path as it not only leads to the nearby village area of Turnchapel to the north but also open hillsides of Jennycliff and the country, much of which is National Trust owned, to the east side of Plymouth Sound. Watersports attractions dominate here with Mount Batten Marina, Yacht Haven, Queen Annes Battery (home of the Royal Western Yacht Club) and the area near Mayflower Steps, simply on the doorstep.

By road the approach is via the urban road through Plymstock. A water taxi links the property across to the historic Mayflower Steps and Plymouth's Barbican. The A38 lies about 5 miles away giving access to the M5 at Exeter within about 50 minutes' average driving time. Bristol is about 2 hours away by road and London about 4 hours. The regular train service from Plymouth (London Paddington) is on average between 3 and 3½ hours. There is also an important cross channel ferry link from Plymouth to Roscoff in Britanny and Santander in Northern Spain.

The Property - The existing restaurant and apartment is currently not in use. Planning consent has been granted for the development of the property to provide 7 luxury apartments and commercial premises on the ground floor, together with extensive garaging. This is a striking and positively contemporary design by one of the best regional, award winning, architects Form Design Group. Plymouth has serious aspirations on a world scale and this proposal demonstrates the aspiration with its breathtaking design, complimenting the setting and allowing the accommodation to take advantage of the extraordinary and varying outlook over a busy and thoroughly fascinating panorama.

Planning Consent - Plymouth City Council Ref: 12/01339/FUL - Re-develop site by erection of new 4 storey building containing commercial unit on ground floor and 7 apartments on upper floors with associated car parking, refuse and cycle storage (demolition of existing building).
