Property description

Description Set in the sought after grounds of Manadon Park, this purpose built, ground floor apartment is a testament to the current owner having been thoughtfully modernised and improved.

Located on the ground floor the property has the unique convenience of two entrances, the communal front door, which leads into the entrance hall and uPVC French doors accessed through the garden adjacent to the designated parking space and open out into the living area. The Kitchen/Dining Room/Sitting Room has been neutrally and tastefully decorated and offers a newly fitted kitchen with ample storage, integrated hob, extractor, fridge freezer, stainless steel sink and a window to the rear elevation.

The property is conveniently situated with easy access routes to the A38, Derriford hospital, bus routes, local amenities and popular schooling.

The original residential development, on the grounds of Ham House, took place in the 1950's and consequentially, most of the housing stock yields from this time.
