5 Plymouth homes perfect for new Argyle manager Wayne Rooney


Plymouth is buzzing with anticipation following the appointment of Wayne Rooney as the new manager of Plymouth Argyle.

Some supporters are perhaps understandably apprehensive, following Rooney’s unsuccessful spell at Birmingham City last season.

But the former England striker’s move to Britain’s Ocean City signals a new era for the Championship club – and the Rooney family.

In fact, Rooney and his wife, Coleen, are reportedly already looking for a home here in Devon.

To help them out, Lang Town & Country is shining the spotlight on 5 Plymouth properties which are on the market now and certainly fit the bill – and the Rooney family’s budget!

Larkham Lane, Plympton – £1,000,000

Wayne and his family are no strangers to luxury living, so this beautiful home in Plympton is the perfect pad for their new life in Devon.

This stunning detached property boasts impeccable craftsmanship and high-end finishes throughout – with a central French oak staircase, and a wonderful glazed wall.

There’s also plenty of space with five generously-sized bedrooms and a breathtaking open-plan kitchen/diner/family room boasting contemporary design and high-end appliances.

Outside is a beautifully landscaped garden, providing a peaceful retreat with its lush greenery and well-maintained borders. The garden is complemented by a spacious driveway providing ample parking space and private gates ensuring security and exclusivity.

North Coombe Farm, Tamerton Foliot – £1,600,000

The Rooneys certainly won’t be short of space if they snap up this stunning detached farmhouse with five paddocks totalling 14 acres.

This charming four-bedroom detached former farmhouse is nestled in a serene setting, with a tree-lined avenue leading to the gravelled yard giving access to the property and various outbuildings.

The heart of the home is a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room where culinary delights are crafted amidst warmth and comfort.

The former stables, thoughtfully repurposed, now serve as a triple garage/games room, perfect for leisurely pursuits or entertaining guests. And if Wayne’s looking for a bit of peace and quiet to concentrate on those Argyle team talks, there’s a study which provides the ideal retreat!

‘Harbour House’ Cremyll Street – £1,250,000

Wayne can own a piece of Plymouth history by buying this iconic ‘Landmark’ late Georgian residence, situated directly adjoining the estuary of the  River Tamar.

With unrivalled and uninterrupted westerly views towards the Royal William Yard, Mount Edgcumbe and Cornwall, this wonderful property has a plethora of character features which include stripped pine floors, marble fireplaces, arched doors between the family room and dining room and coved ceilings.

There are moorings available in the Royal William Yard and also a tidal mooring can be rented outside the house, subject to availability – should Wayne have a boat!

And situated a short walk from the property is an electronically gated area where there is exclusive parking for three to four vehicles with an electric vehicle charging point.

Grand Parade, West Hoe – £1,300,000

The Rooneys have the opportunity to live in this Parade of Georgian houses, which is a well-known and iconic landmark of the city.

Being offered to the market with no onward chain, this elegant townhouse on Plymouth Hoe has access to a charming communal private garden and offers one of the most magnificent views anywhere in the South West.

The property is bright and well-proportioned with many rooms enjoying the outstanding sea views. Importantly, because of its position, the light is able to stream through.

Finished with attention to detail this beautifully presented family home retains many period features whilst elegantly updated to reflect modern living.

Paddock Drive, Brixton – £1,000,000

Wayne and Coleen will love this house which offers the tranquillity of the South Hams countryside while being just moments away from the local amenities the village of Brixton has to offer.

This is a unique opportunity to own a bespoke residence tailored to their lifestyle. The property has been built to an exceptional standard by the current owners and offers bright and airy accommodation throughout. 

The heart of the home is the fantastic open plan reception room with the well-equipped, high-end bespoke kitchen, while the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with a feature floor-to-ceiling feature window with views over the rolling South Hams countryside and as far as Dartmoor National Park.

The master bedroom is complemented by a dressing room and a luxury en-suite wet room with micro concrete flooring with underfloor heating..
