The building is set within Elliot Terrace on Plymouth's Hoe, a large south-facing recreational space adjacent to and above limestone cliffs that form the seafront, commanding views of Plymouth Sound, Smeaton's Tower Lighthouse, Drake's Island and across to Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in Cornwall. Plymouth has a rich and fascinating history and is one of the finest natural harbours in the world.
The city has a diverse selection of shops, restaurants and theatres, many of which are within easy walking distance of Elliot Terrace. Plymouth's Barbican is only a short walk from the property, offering many exciting visitor attractions, including The National Marine Aquarium, a selection of shops and restaurants as well as Plymouth's famous Gin Distillery.
Plymouth has at least five yacht marinas including Sutton Harbour, Mayflower, Plymouth Yacht Haven, Queen Anne's Battery and King Point, providing an excellent base for exploring the South West's many fantastic beaches and anchorages, or further afield to France and the Channel Islands.
Communication links to and from the city are excellent, with the A38 Devon Expressway providing dual carriageway links to the M5 at Exeter, or Cornwall across the Tamar. There is a mainline train station, providing direct links to London Paddington in just over 3 hours, whilst Exeter's International Airport about an hour's drive away provides a wide selection of services to UK and international destinations, including daily flights to London City Airport. Plymouth also has a ferry terminal with regular sailings to Roscoff and Santander.
Designed by George Wightwick, a pupil of John Foulston and built by John Pethick in 1879, Elliot Terrace forms part of Plymouth's iconic parade of Italianate buildings on the city's world famous Hoe. The terrace is best known as the home of Lady Astor, the first lady MP, whose husband, Waldorf Astor, was Lord Mayor at the time. The Astors donated 3 Elliot Terrace, the neighbouring property, to the people of Plymouth and it is currently the official home of the Lord Mayor.
Until recently, the building has been used as a residential investment property, with five letting units generating a rental income. In its current configuration, the building could continue to be used as a residential investment opportunity or, with the planning permission that has been granted, can be converted into seven self-contained apartments.
Whilst the building has been altered and adapted since its days as a magnificent home, the building still retains a wealth of original features throughout. If required and subject to the necessary consents, the building could be converted back into a fantastic family home providing accommodation over six floors,
with the lower ground floor being used as a self-contained apartment if required.
At present, there is one allocated off-road parking space in front of the building and entitlement to resident's permit parking via Plymouth City Council. There are two integral garages, accessed from the rear of the building. Outside, there is an internal courtyard, front lightwell and storage areas, accessed from the rear of the building. There is a balcony at the front of the building on the first floor, and another on the second floor
enjoying the breathtaking south facing views. At the back of the building there is a roof terrace, accessed from the half landing between the second and third floors. There are also flat roof areas, accessed from the fourth and fifth floors.
Details of the existing layout can be seen from the floor plans contained within the brochure. For full details of existing planning permissions with existing and proposed drawings, please contact the agents, or visit: www.plymouth.gov.uk ref. 13/00612/FUL & 15/00016/LBC.
