Property description

Tenure: Freehold

'St Maurice House' is a splendid Grade II Listed detached residence situated within a historical locale, close to the Castle and an array of amenities including shops, schools, parkland, cricket pavilion, a swimming pool, a library and easy access to the A38 dual carriageway. Plympton St Maurice is an ancient Stannary town and the church being used by worshippers during Saxon times, together with the remains of a Norman Motte and Bailey Castle are situated close by. Amongst the many other notable buildings within the village is the Old Grammar School where Sir Joshua Reynolds' father was headmaster and the young Joshua Reynolds a pupil. In addition, Mr and Mrs John Cranch who owned St Maurice House at this time were, it is understood, the young Reynolds benefactors funding his 'Grand Tour' as was the fashion in this era.

This imposing and impressive detached residence, stands within its own high walled gardens extending to some 1.25 acres and has a detached coach house situated on the southern edge. It is difficult to put a precise date on when St Maurice House was constructed, but it is believed the main part of the current house dates back to the 18th Century with later additions in the Queen Anne, Georgian and Victorian periods. There is a plethora of fine original quality features including marble fireplaces, window shutters, coving, dado rails, door furniture, mouldings, servants bells and many other interesting features along with versatile accommodation. The property is currently arranged as a six bedroom house with a 2 bedroom cottage and includes 2/3 kitchen's, breakfast room, wine cellar, cold room, drawing room, study, dining room, playroom, television room, conservatory, 6/7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms.

To the outside of the property are the magnificent grounds with a large sweeping lawn which was formerly a tennis court. The spectacular magnolia tree has now encroached over the main lawn. There are a variety of specimen trees including a Conker tree, shrubs, apple, fruit trees, a handkerchief tree, various rose beds and a splendid Victorian greenhouse. The lower half of the garden was cultivated for the kitchen. The middle part of the garden features the ancient Longbrook, ornamental pond and a nearby holly tree.

To the southern edge of the garden is the disused Coach House/Coachmans Cottage, which is accessed via Back Lane, and offers garaging for 2/3 vehicles. This two storey building, which has a lapsed Planning consent for conversion to a single dwelling, was re-roofed in the late 1980's. In preparation of any future development a reinforced concrete 'ring beam' was cast and tie rods installed at the same time. There is also further gated off-road access to the gardens by the side of the coach house.  

Agents Note The property currently has planning approval and listed building consent, which allows you to carry out various refurbishments. You will be able to obtain more information on the Plymouth planning portal under '19/02029/LBC' or you can contact the office and a member of the team will be happy to help.
The sellers have also commissioned a Historic report which we would be happy to share with a serious buyer.
