Located on the south coast of Devon, Plymouth is a city of stunning natural beauty, and is a thriving industrial and academic centre. From the cobbled streets to the breath-taking harbour and the stunning architecture of the
beautiful historic churches, you can see that Plymouth is bursting with culture and a proud heritage. But it is also a vibrant city, where tourists and residents can choose to enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life, or indeed the more tranquil lifestyle provided by coastal rural living. Plymouth really is a city that offers a bit of everything. As a thriving port city, Plymouth has almost 300 marine and maritime businesses, the largest cluster of its type in the South West. Plymouth's position as a city of significant naval and maritime importance is undeniable, and as a result the city came under significant attack in World War II, with it having to be rebuilt post war.

The Development
The new build development at North Hill Court is the perfect location for student accommodation, with Plymouth University and the Plymouth College of Art just a 5 minute walk away, whilst Marjon University is a 5 mile journey by car or public transport. Furthermore, the train station, providing national rail links, is also just a short walk away, as is the Drake Circus shopping centre, Addison Park, the Nancy Astor Sports Centre, and a large supermarket. It really doesn't get more central than this! With everything you could possibly need right on your doorstep, North Hill Court is a highly desirable place to live. The three storey development consists of 39 fully furnished apartments, managed by an experienced property management company. All of the apartments are completed to a high specification, and finished with contemporary fixtures and fittings. There is Wi-Fi throughout the building, which supports students in their study and downtime, as well as communal lounge areas and communal gardens for students to relax and socialise. Security measures have been considered as part of the design of this development and as such there is secure fob access, and CCTV in operation 24 hours a day.

How It Works
Both the studio apartments and 1 bed apartments are due to be completed by Q1 2019. These apartments are being sold on a leasehold basis of 250 years, with the financials on each style of apartment demonstrating an 8% net rental yield, which will be guaranteed for 3 years.
