Tenure: Freehold

'Penlee Gardens' is without a doubt one of Plymouth's most desirable addresses. Situated on a private road consisting of mainly Georgian residences, each bordered by a private lawn, the imposing 'Penlee Gardens' estate is lavishly fronted by approximately three acres of beautifully landscaped formal gardens, which are for exclusive use by the residents. '9 Penlee Gardens' is an elegant Grade II Listed semi-detached period villa. From the front of the property there are panoramic views across the formal gardens and on towards the City, Plymouth Sound and the surrounding countryside.

Built circa 1860, and strongly influenced by the world renowned architect John Foulston, the property has only ever been owned by three families, each residing there for some 60 years. The property does now need modernisation but has a wonderful array of original character features including various fireplaces, ceiling roses, coving, picture rails, ornate cornices, deep skirting boarders and full length sash windows.

The accommodation comprises of a magnificent and fabulous entrance hallway with Georgian staircase and hand rail, a sitting room with full length windows, a feature fireplace and an archway leading through to the dining room which in turn has doors to the rear gardens. There is a study, a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, two utility rooms, a cloakroom and separate w.c., whilst to the rear there is a studio room with two Velux windows. There are two staircases leading to the first floor.

On the first floor are five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The property enjoys particularly fine views from the first floor.

There are two cellar rooms which are accessed from the kitchen one of which houses the gas fired central heating boiler which is now dated.

Externally there is an enclosed walled rear courtyard which provides access to the main gardens. The walled rear gardens are, without doubt, a truly wonderful feature of the property and comprise a large level sweeping lawn with a stunning array of well established plants, shrubs and bushes. There is a summerhouse, a greenhouse, potting shed, garden store, garage and a pedestrian gate to Penlee Road at the rear. The formal front gardens are run by Penlee Gardens Lawn Association of which all of the vendors are automatically a member. We understand the annual cost per house for the upkeep of the grounds is approx. £600 per annum.

To the front is a long drive which leads to the entrance porch and provides ample additional parking.

AGENTS NOTE: This is a rare opportunity to acquire a fine Georgian residence and an internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the character and style which is commensurate with the Georgian era.
