Why move to Plymouth?
Mon 28 May 2018
Sales Valuer Hugh Niven and office manager Robin Tozer of Stags in Plymouth discuss why this West Country city is becoming an increasingly popular place to set up home.
Plymouth, the largest of the South West’s cities, may not at first glance be the first choice for city life. However, if you take a closer look at the properties on offer here and the lifestyle too and you may well be asking yourself, why not, says Hugh Niven of Stags Plymouth: “Famous for being the start and finish of numerous seafaring adventures, Plymouth is a city steeped in history. Drake famously played bowls on the Hoe in 1588 before defeating the Spanish Armada to the Mayflower Steps, which are soon to celebrate their 400th anniversary in 2020.
“Today though, highlights include The Barbican with its cobbled streets lined with restaurants, bars and cafés, as well as the Royal William Yard, a Grade I-listed former Royal Navy victualling yard, which has now been converted into apartments and eateries.”
In terms of lifestyle, Plymouth residents are lucky enough to be able to walk on Dartmoor, sail in Plymouth Sound (and further afield for that matter) and enjoy wonderful community events such as the World Firework Championships, which are held here every year. The South West Coast Path runs right along the city’s seafront, offering miles of spectacular scenic walks.
With plenty of surprisingly affordable homes for sale in the area, could now be the time to relocate to Plymouth?
