Property Details

The Property

Built in the 1930's, 6 Russell Avenue is a fine example of the substantial family homes which the area of Hartley is well known for. Since our client purchased the property in 1996 it has been tastefully updated throughout in a sympathetic manner in order to incorporate the gorgeous period features, of which there are many. The accommodation throughout is bright, spacious and versatile; the property is entered from the side elevation and upon entry one is greeted by an initial vestibule and then a large central hallway which most of the ground floor accommodation leads off. From the hallway a grand staircase rises to the first floor also which is well lit by a stunning large stained glass window. The living accommodation on the ground floor includes a large living room with a bay window and a feature fireplace, a formal dining room, conservatory, snug/TV room, breakfast room and a modern fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar area and ample storage. Also on the ground floor is a WC and a useful utility room. On the first floor one is greeted initially with a large open landing area with a number of storage cupboards, from here there are five generous bedrooms, all of which are large enough to fit a double bed, along with a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower. Right next to the master bedroom is a large storage cupboard/walk in wardrobe which could lend itself to being converted into an ensuite shower room.


The property occupies a sizeable plot and boasts mature gardens to the front and rear. Initially there is a gated driveway which leads to a detached single garage and runs alongside a front garden area which is currently laid for ease of maintenance with stone chippings and boasts and assortment of plants, bushes and flowering shrubs. The rear of the property benefits from being almost directly south facing and provides a lovely enclosed garden which is predominately laid to lawn with an initial paved patio seating area which can be accessed via the Kitchen or the Conservatory. From the garden there is a gate to the side linking the front of the property to the rear; and the garage can also be accessed via a uPVC double glazed door to the side. The property has also been fitted with solar panels to the rear elevation of the roof.


Russell Avenue is arguably one of Plymouth's most sought after roads, found in the heart of the always popular area known as Hartley. The road is peaceful and only really sees local traffic, yet is within close proximity to regular bus routes which operate along Mannamead Road which is directly at the end of Russell Avenue itself. An abundance of local amenities can be found within just a short distance in nearby Mutley Plain and Higher Compton; and Plymouth City Centre is also just a short drive or bus journey away. The property falls within the catchment area of a number of popular Primary and Secondary Schools, with the most noteable being Compton Church of England Primary School which is highly regarded locally and currently boasts a good Ofsted Report. The area as a whole also benefits from being within easy access onto the A38 dual carriageway giving access to Cornwall via the Tamar Bridge to the West, along with Exeter, Bristol and the rest of the UK to the East.


Plymouth is a city on the south coast of Devon, about 37 miles south-west of Exeter and 190 miles west-south-west of London, between the mouths of the rivers Plym to the east and Tamar to the west where they join Plymouth Sound to form the boundary with Cornwall, it is also adjacent to one of the most natural harbours in the world. To the North is the Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles and which provides excellent recreational facilities. The city is home to more than 260,000 people, making it the 30th most populated city in the United Kingdom and the second-largest city in the South West, after Bristol and has a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities. There is mainline train service to London (Paddington) and to Penzance in West Cornwall. Plymouth is governed locally by Plymouth City Council and is represented nationally by three MPs. Plymouth's economy remains strongly influenced by shipbuilding and seafaring including ferry links to Brittany and Spain, but has tended toward a university economy since the early 2000's. It has the largest operational naval base in Western Europe – HMNB Devonport.
