This elegant Victorian home is situated in a quiet and exclusive residential road in one of the most favoured areas of the maritime city of Plymouth, famed for its mild climate and crystal clear waters. It is a fine example of a superior townhouse, located in the highly desirable area of Plymouth known as Mannamead in the green county of Devon, it was an affluent Victorian and early Edwardian suburb with wide avenues and grand villas.
The city of Plymouth, little more than a walk away, is renowned for its marine facilities and history which includes the historic Barbican, the large university, Theatre Royal and National Marine Aquarium.
