Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Circa 1898, 'Yalta' is an imposing detached limestone residence and is without doubt one of the most imposing and noteworthy 'Landmark' properties within the City. Occupying a large and prominent corner site within the Mannamead Conservation Area, the property was originally built for an Alderman of the city, a wealthy shipping merchant, and in more recent years has been used as a Doctors Surgery.

The accommodation now comprises a very large family home with an additional potential self-contained ground floor annexe and potential for a second floor self-contained apartment (subject to the necessary planning consents). The property has an absolute abundance of Victorian character features and these include, in the entrance vestibule alone, double entrance doors, a mosaic tiled floor and full length ceramic tiling with a moulded ceiling. There is the most amazing entrance hallway which has a galleried landing, ornate newel posts, an oak floor, moulding and panelled walls, ceilings and decorative friezes. Many of the rooms have impressive moulded ceilings, fireplaces, full length sash windows, plate rails and ornate fingerplates. Outside the entrance of the property is a delightful veranda covering a coloured quarry tiled path. There are three main large reception rooms and a fabulous 'Ballroom', which has an arch ceiling, a small stage and, we understand, was originally designed as a billiard room. There is a full height cellar with some wine bins and a modern kitchen with fitted units. Also on the ground floor, and with a separate entrance, is the 'annexe' which has a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom.

On the first and second floor of the main residence are six/seven bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate w.c. The second floor has the potential be converted into a self-contained two/three bedroom flat (subject to the necessary planning consents).

The property has a large loft space with ladder and lighting.

The grounds are a delightful feature of the property and comprise various lawns, flowerbeds and are screened by an established array of plants, bushes and trees. There is a double garage with a driveway leading from Lovell Road.

The excellent range of local facilities include popular primary schools, Plymouth College, Henders Corner Shopping Parade, local parks, tennis clubs and regular public transport to the City Centre less than two miles distant.  

AGENTS NOTE: An internal inspection of this extraordinary and unique character property can be strongly advised. The property is vacant and therefore there is no onward chain.
