Rising demand for quality homes in Plymouth means properties are getting sold extremely quickly.
Lang Town & Country has seen an increase in seller confidence this year, with more and more people looking to put their homes on the market.
This comes after estate agents in Plymouth reported strong sales figures throughout the summer months.
And the most recent Zoopla House Price Index – which measures the rise and fall of house prices across the UK – shows a 0.6% rise in the last 12 months. Outside of London, homes are registering growth of 1% year-on-year.
If you’re thinking about moving now is the perfect time, with Plymouth properties being snapped up extremely quickly.
Here are 5 beautiful homes we sold in Plymouth in October 2023.
Higher Compton Road, Higher Compton – sold advertised as £750,000
Available for only the second time in over 50 years, this exquisite, detached property is situated in the popular residential area of Higher Compton, close by to a popular primary school, open green spaces at Hartley Park and easy access onto the A38 carriageway and Plymouth city centre.
The wonderful property is positioned on a substantial plot and seamlessly blends classic charm with modern convenience. An array of original period features preserve the character and elegance of the bygone era, including original panelled doors, wooden flooring, stained-glass windows, dado and picture rails and port-style windows.
East Quay House, Sutton Harbour – sold advertised as £318,000
‘East Quay House’ is a waterside development located on the eastern side of Sutton Harbour completed by Charles Church Developments in 2006.
This fantastic apartment is situated on the third floor and was offered to the market with vacant possession and no onward chain. As well as a charming balcony which has a westerly aspect and offers truly stunning views across Sutton Harbour, externally there is an allocated car parking space within a gated car park.
Roborough Avenue, Derriford – sold advertised as £575,000
Roborough Avenue is without doubt one of the most desirable and sought-after avenues in Plymouth and comprises a wonderful array of individual detached quality homes.
This detached residence was offered to the market chain-free for the first time in over 70 years. It was designed by the owners in the late 1950s and is situated on a substantial plot with extensive gardens to the rear and a landscaped garden to the front with ample parking on the driveway.
The property has been extended twice since it was built and offers fantastic potential to be extended further, particularly on the ground floor to create a fantastic living space.
The Brewhouse, Royal William Yard – sold advertised as offers over £595,000
‘Brewhouse’ is a Grade I Listed building which has been imaginatively and sympathetically converted to provide a collection of 77 high-specification luxury apartments. This historic building was once capable of producing 30,000 gallons of beer per day and has also been used as a store for rum, a torpedo workshop and finally became the headquarters for the Raiding Squadron of the Royal Marines.
We were pleased to offer arguably one of the best apartments in the Royal William Yard. This stunning home of approximately 2,500 sq ft, is full of character with impressive exposed granite walls, cast iron columns and wooden beams throughout. The beautiful wooden floors have recently been refurbished and the triple-aspect windows are stunning with breathtaking views from each elevation.
Custom House Lane, West Hoe – sold advertised as £260,000
‘The Bridge’ is a development situated within Millbay Marina Village. The property commands spectacular views across Mount Edgcumbe, Drake’s Island and beyond to Plymouth Sound with principle accommodation taking advantage of the views.
Located on the third floor, accessed via the stairs or lift is this extremely spacious two-bedroom apartment benefiting from two balconies. Requiring a degree of modernisation, the property also comes with a garage.
