DESCRIPTION A most individual, first and second floor maisonette located in a 2007 conversion, set within a residential square close to Plymouth Cathedral, a short walk from the City Centre. A most unassuming property accessed via stairs to the side of the development, with a communal entrance on the first floor. A large Communal Hallway; gives access to the property via its own individual door.

Once inside the property, the abundant light and stylish design and finish is immediately apparent. Stairs rise to the Second Floor Landing: with a large store cupboard found under the stairs which benefits power, electric and plumbing. Dog-legged stairs lead to; the Main Landing and Internal Hallway of the property. From here the light cascades through a glazed apex which continues across the width of the property and benefits from automatic, thermostatic controls opening and closing, dependant on conditions. Also benefitting from self-cleaning glass, the light into the property floods throughout and this combined with the current vendors attention to detail and styling creates a most individual and unforgettable home.

The open-plan Kitchen/Dining/Living area is found to one side, spanning the width, with a Velux window overlooking the city skyline. This has previous planning permission to convert to a Juliette balcony, which indeed would be most suitable in which to enjoy the views to the rear.

The Living Area; benefits from a large space into the apex of the roof with exposed beams, smooth plaster walls and ceiling in neutral colourwash and individual laid flooring. The room seamlessly links with the bespoke, handmade and fitted Kitchen; which benefits from a breakfast bar, contemporary square edged work surface, room for a variety of free-standing white goods, four ring gas hob with extractor fan over and integrated electric oven.

A Family Bathroom, is found accessed from the inner hallway and benefits from; wall-mounted hand wash basin, low level WC and panelled bath with electric shower over to one side and shower curtain. The room is finished in half decorative tiling and continuation of the mosaic tiled flooring, which is also found on the landing.

The Main Bedroom, of course benefits from light from the apex glazing which cascades into this beautifully presented room. The exposed ceiling trusses separate a double sized space with a further space for free-standing wardrobes and dressing area. The Second Bedroom: is found adjacent, again accessed from the inner hallway. This room is of 'L' shape and benefits from an alcove, great for storage, a Velux window overlooking the rear elevation and ample room for a double bed. Both the bedrooms are fitted with neutral carpeting and styled in keeping with the rest of the property.

The property benefits from double glazing, gas central heating and comes with the benefit of a gated, allocated parking space, accessed via roll-up door to the rear of the development.

The property should appeal to those looking for an individual and stylish maisonette, close to the City, with good transport links out and further into the city available, a short walk to the City Centre and indeed the fashionable Royal William Yard, should make for those looking for a stylish city pad, needing an immediate viewing to appreciate fully. 

STONEHOUSE Stonehouse, was one of three towns that were amalgamated into modern-day Plymouth. West Stonehouse was a village that is within the current Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in Cornwall. It was destroyed by the French in 1350. The terminology used in this article refers to the settlement of East Stonehouse which is on the Devon side of the mouth of the Tamar estuary, and will be referred to as Stonehouse.

Settlement in the area goes back to Roman times and a house made of stone was believed to have stood near to Stonehouse Creek. However other stories relate to land owned in the 13th century by Robert the Bastard. This land subsequently passed to the Durnford family through marriage to the Edgecombe family in the 14th and 15th centuries. The site of the original settlement of Stonehouse is now partly occupied by the complex of Princess Yachts. One wall survives as a listed building.

During the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries the areas of Durnford Street, Emma Place and Caroline Place were home to many of the West Country's top-ranking admirals, doctors and clergy. Union Street, originally built across marshland, was for almost a century the centre of the city's night life with about a hundred pubs, a music hall and many other attractions. Much of it was destroyed by bombing in World War II. After the war the area between Union Street and the dock has been used by small factories, storage, car dealers and repairers. Since 2002 many of those buildings and yards have been cleared and are being replaced by contemporary residential buildings
