A period home with an exceptional amount of accommodation, full of original features spread over three floors, comprising six double bedrooms, three receptions and four bathrooms.

Located just a short walk from the shops and amenities of Hyde Park, Mutley Plain and the City Centre, the property is located away from the busy main streets, and commands distant views from its corner position. Nearby parks include Central Park which is home the Life Centre, and the favoured Hyde Park Primary School is located at the end of the road to the property.

The property benefits from having kept many of its original features, and is abundant with decorative coving, ceiling roses & cornicing to all the principal rooms.  Each reception has an ornate fireplace, which also feature in the main bedrooms on the first floor.  A grand reception hallway has stripped wooden flooring and panelled doors which open into the sitting room, dining room and study, perfect as a play room or home office. 

The modern kitchen provides plenty of storage and worktop space for food preparation and also has a four-person breakfast table, with a window overlooking the rear courtyard garden and inglenook fireplace also.  This leads through to a large pantry area, and separate utility room and a downstairs bathroom, perfect for cleaning down after a day at the beach or a dog walk!

On the first floor, three very large double bedrooms lead off the landing, with the master bedroom benefiting from an ensuite shower room & wc.  There is a further shower room and additional separate wc plus a huge walk-in storage room, perfect for suitcases and seasonal décor that can be stored with easy access.  On the second floor, again you find three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom suite.  The rooms on this top floor have distant views over Plymouth towards Mount Edgcumbe.

Outside, the property has lovely enclosed front garden, which has been mostly laid to lawn and can be accessed from a French Door through off the sitting room, or a gateway to the side.  Mature hedging and shrubs provide privacy, and a sun terrace runs across the front of the house.  The rear courtyard is also enclosed, and incorporates a raised timber decked terrace, perfect for outside living and alfresco dining.  A pathway leads into the house at the rear either through the utility or directly into the main hallway.  Steps lead into the large garage, complete with metal roller door and access to loft storage.

The property has been well maintained, and benefits from a modern gas central heating system with hot water pressure tank. It has fitted upvc double glazed windows, apart from two windows kept for their ornate value.  All the rooms have radiators, and the heating is controlled by a thermostat point.  This splendid home must be viewed to appreciate its space and accommodation, and would suit either a large family or potential house sharing arrangement with huge income potential.
