The Dining area is a most impressive space and offers solid Oak flooring which seamlessly links the large Dining Room with the Kitchen area to provide a most pleasing and useable space. A hand built 'L' shaped padded bench is in situ in the Dining area but could also be removed to provide a spacious area for large dining furniture. The large spacious Kitchen has been re-fitted to provide a matching range of base and wall mounted units in a contemporary shaker style across two sides of the room with solid Oak square edged worksurface over, incorporating a newly installed four ring gas hob with extractor fan over and stainless steel sink with drainer and mixer tap over. A central large hand built free-standing centre island holds the room with solid Oak worksurface and storage and room for breakfast stooling below. The room also benefits from an integral electric oven and concealed fridge and separate freezer. Natural light is found from a window to the side elevation and sliding double glazed doors to the rear garden.

Crownhill This mostly 1930's suburb grew around the junction of the A386 Tavistock Road and the A374 road (later the A38 and now the B3413) from Plympton to Saltash Passage. Following realignment of the A386 in the 1970s, the old Tavistock road has been isolated and renamed Morshead Road. There is a pub, a M &S food outlet, a post office, a few convenience stores, many takeaways and an Indian restaurant. Crownhill is the home of the divisional police headquarters and a Catholic boy's comprehensive school. Primary schools include Eggbuckland Vale, St Edwards, Widey Court. Notre Dame Catholic Girls School, is located within 1.5 miles of Crownhill. There is also a large fire station and close by a big garden centre. The district is very popular because it is very close to the A38 Parkway/Devon Expressway and is near to the local general hospital at Derriford without being so far from the city centre, four miles south, that it is isolated and inaccessible as are so many of Plymouth's satellite suburbs.
Plymouth Plymouth is a city with one of the largest natural harbours in the world. To the north is the Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles which provides excellent recreational facilities. Plymouth itself has a population of well over 250,000 and has a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities. There is a mainline train service to London Paddington and to Penzance in Cornwall. Brittany Ferries operates seasonal services from Plymouth to France and northern Spain.
