THE PROPERTY This impressive three storey spacious Victorian family home, built in 1885, is a substantial period building with unique characteristics, retaining many impressive attractive original architectural features offering generously proportioned accommodation, adaptable layout, and standing on a good size plot with delightful mature gardens which are walled and private to the rear together with off street parking in a spacious double garage.

The property has a distinct 'WOW' factor retaining many original and period features, for example with original stained glass glazing in the porch signed by the original maker, curved bay windows incorporating curved glass, an impressive array of fireplaces, wall mouldings and dresser units in the breakfast room. Original plaster coving, impressive hardwood floors, panelling and fire surrounds. The exterior is typical Plymouth limestone with a slate roof and decorative ironwork design. There have only been three owners since 1942 and these linked to the medical profession and the universities.

The property clearly provides an excellent spacious and flexible home for a large or extended family, but is equally potentially adaptable for other purposes, having in the past been a Doctor's Surgery.

LOCATION The property stands on a corner of two limetree avenues, Houndiscombe Road and St Lawrence Road and overlooks mature trees in the adjacent Houndiscombe Park. Situated in an area of substantial stone faced Victorian terraced properties and lies a few minutes walk from Plymouth City Centre, the University and the Railway Station and a variety of other services and amenities nearby including a choice of Primary and Secondary schools.

About Alan Cummings

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
