Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

DESCRIPTION A second floor apartment, within this historic, early Victorian detached building that has played an important role in the city's/countries heritage. For example, in World War II the building was designated the headquarters of the Polish military between 1940 and 1945 and converted into its current use as exclusive apartments approximately 15 years ago by Drew Calder, who converted other similar buildings about the city around that time.

Clarendon House enjoys an enviably convenient location. Within walking distance of the many amenities of Stoke Village and the variety of alternative amenities in Albert Road itself, the beautiful parkland areas of Devonport Park which includes one of the city's most popular, children's play parks is also within a 5 minute walk of Clarendon House. To the rear of the building there is a large resident's carpark with allocated parking spaces. The carpark itself is accessed via secure double opening gates that are operated by an entry fob system. Both the main building and the tenement building are accessed via spacious, impressive reception foyers and have security entry phone systems prior to staircases giving access to each floor.

Upon reaching the second floor landing, a single private door gives access into Apartment 17 where having passed through the entrance door you are greeted by an exceptionally light and spacious reception hall, that could easily couple as a study area, with a large sash window bathing natural light into the area. This foyer area leads into an inner hallway where you will find a hatch that gives access to a useful attic storage void. At the end of the hallway you open immediately into a very large 'L' shaped lounge/diner which is a triple aspect room, with four large original sash windows providing glimpses of Staddon Heights, Mount Edgcumbe Park and the River Tamar beyond roof tops. The apartment is warmed by gas central heating, offers vacant possession, whilst having "wood effect" laminate flooring (the bathroom, en-suite & kitchen have tiled floors) whilst a stylish contemporary bathroom suite with a shower over the bath is excellent. The two bedrooms are both double size rooms (the master including an en-suite shower room) but there is little doubt that the stand out feature of this light and roomy apartment is the kitchen/breakfast room, equipped with grey and anthracite cabinet wear, integrated appliances include an electric oven, four plate gas hob, electric extractor hood and a fitted dishwasher, all of which are complimented by stainless steel splashbacks and jade green glazed worktops and a matching breakfast bar (there is also plenty of further appliance space).

If you are looking for a period home with a modern finish, offering spacious, secure, light and airy accommodation, secure allocated parking and no onward chain, we cannot recommend this second floor apartment within the Stoke Damerel Conservation area highly enough. 

STOKE Also referred to by its earlier name of Stoke Damerel, is a parish, that was once part of historical Devonport. In 1914, Devonport and Plymouth amalgamated with Stonehouse: the new town took the name of Plymouth. Since the amalgamation Stoke has been an inner suburb of Plymouth.

Stoke is now densely built up with houses and apartments, dating back to late Georgian, with a predominance of early Victorian, Edwardian and fewer, 1930's homes. Bisected by the main railway line from Paddington to Penzance. The parish church is notable not only for its evolving architecture, but also its contents and historical connections. The area has been prosperous for several hundred years, and there are some distinguished private houses (several of which feature in Nikolaus Pevsner's South Devon.) There are many examples of properties designed by famed Georgian architect Foulston, within the suburb.

Stoke Damerel and Stuart Road Primary Schools educates pupils of ages 4-11, whilst secondary school children, may attend, Stoke Community College, and is the home of Devonport High School for Boys, Grammar School, and Devonport Services Rugby Club. Flanked by Central park, Victoria Park and Devonport Park, there are acres of leisure space on the doorstep, with Plymouth Argyle Football Club. The Plymouth Life Centre, both considered to be within walking distance. Plymouth City Centre, is approximately one and a half miles away.
