Full description

An impressive Grade II listed detached Georgian Villa offering versatile living space over three floors with elegant rooms and fine architecture in a secluded avenue within commuting distance to Plymouth City centre, close to the embankment and A38.

Situation - Situated in the Plymouth suburb of Laira and within striking distance of the City Centre, Cleve Villa is an impressive family residence with ample space and storage, with fabulous architectural features and a lush mature garden. It has also been mentioned in the Pevsner historical buildings of Devon.

Description - A truly exciting opportunity to purchase a Georgian Villa in the style of Strawberry Hill Gothic architecture with beautiful cathedral style windows, a magnificent glass lobby entrance hall with stained glass panelling and covered colonial trellising. A southerly aspect gives the property a bright feel and brings the stain glass to life. A useful pair of outbuildings and a very private rear courtyard.

Accommodation - This wonderful property with a wealth of original features was once owned by Mr Charles Brown who lived here for many years before leaving for New Zealand. Brown was a lifelong friend and mentor to the poet John Keats. Walking up the path through the mature garden you are greeted by the beautiful glass entrance lobby with stained glass panels and a covered colonial veranda with roses running through the trellis.
The dual aspect living room with cathedral style windows, with views into the garden, wood burner and wooden shutters add to the period feel and complements the drawing room with its feature fireplace and French doors leading out under the veranda.
To the rear of the property is the kitchen with a large gas range cooker, wooden worktops and a view looking on to the rear courtyard, leading through to the dining room which has the original range cooker as the focal point, oak beams and plenty of room to seat eight when entertaining. There is a modern bathroom downstairs and small study to complete the ground floor.
The master bedroom leads off the landing with another original fireplace drawing the eye and a large Jack and Jill bathroom to the side. This is shared with bedroom two, which is also a good size double bedroom via a corridor and makes the property an ideal family home. Stairs lead to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms with plenty of storage and a study/single bedroom and a bathroom to service the floor.

Outside - The garden is quiet and secluded with a wonderful array of different plants with acer trees, an apple tree and the roses lining the veranda and access to the rear of the garage and to the parking as well. To the rear of the property is the courtyard which houses the utility room and a good size outbuilding suitable for many uses with power and light.

Services - Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
