Period properties in Plympton

If you’re looking for a traditional property, Plympton is a great place to start. The area is actually older than Plymouth itself and consists of several villages which have combined to become a haven for families with children. Located to the east of the city centre, Plympton has all the amenities you could ever need. In terms of housing, Plympton has everything from impressive Georgian townhouses to Victorian terraces and more modern properties.

Edwardian elegance in Peverell

Peverall is a central area of Plymouth close to its largest green space – Central Park. Its close proximity to the city centre makes it the ideal choice for people working in the city. There are an abundance of large Edwardian properties to be found in this prosperous area of the city. There are also a range of Victorian terraced homes and 1930s semi-detached properties, providing a great choice for all budgets and requirements.

Heritage homes in The Hoe

Located on Plymouth’s recently regenerated harbourside, The Hoe exudes maritime charm. Only a stone’s throw from the city centre, when you want the sea air with city centre convenience, it’s the place to be. Many of the large Georgian and Victorian properties in The Hoe have been converted into stylish apartments, perfect for young couples working in the city.

Renovate a cottage in Saltash

If you’d prefer to live just outside Plymouth itself, Saltash is a great option. Located just over the River Tamar in Cornwall, from here, you can be in Plymouth city centre in under half an hour even at the busiest times of day. There are a wealth of properties on offer as you venture further into the Cornish countryside, and if you’d like a ‘doer upper’ Saltash could be the perfect place for you to focus your search.
