Full description

Tenure: Freehold

'St Elmo' is a Grade II listed semi-detached residence which forms part of a noble Norman Gothic structure built in 1861 as a Theological College and originally called 'Western College'. When constructed there was no street, indeed it was the principal building in the locality with spectacular views across Mutley and Lipson Valley towards Plymouth Hoe and the Sound. In subsequent years the property became a preparatory school and thereafter a centre for various leisure and educational purposes. The architect was the celebrated James Hine who also designed the Guildhall with striking similarities typified by the high roofs, exaggerated gable ends, delicate spires and intricate windows.

The property is arranged over three floors and has versatile and spacious accommodation throughout comprising of an entrance vestibule with beautiful stained glass double doors leading through to the hallway which provides access to all the ground floor accommodation and stairs rising to the first floor.

There are two reception rooms with dual aspects, a study, a shower room, utility room and a delightful kitchen/breakfast room with a fitted kitchen and walk-in larder.

On the first floor, there are four large double bedrooms (three with fitted cupboards), a bathroom with three piece suite and a separate w.c.

To the second floor there are a further two double bedrooms, a shower room, a utility room and a wonderful roof terrace with distant views towards the City Centre.

The property has gas central heating.

The property has delightful front, side and rear gardens with various seating areas and a plethora of plants, shrubs and bushes as well as a useful cellar space. The property also benefits from a large double garage which has power and lighting and is accessed from Mannamead Road.
