'Elliot Terrace' is Plymouth's most iconic Grade II* Listed terrace located on Plymouth's historic Hoe with delightful views across the Hoe promenade and across the waterfront of Plymouth Sound. 'Elliot Terrace' is part of a planned group of terraces and villas by the renowned architect Foulston and his pupil George Wightwick. Created in the Italianate style, this historic Grade II listed mansion has a stucco front and slate roof. The terrace is also best known as the home of Lady Astor, the first Lady mp whose husband, Waldorf Astor, was Lord Mayor at the time and who donated 3 Elliot Terrace to the people of Plymouth, currently the home of the Lord Mayor and is the neighbouring property. Lady Astor used 3 Elliot Terrace as her main residence whilst she was an mp for the City, whilst 2 Elliot Terrace was used as private residences, including retirement residences, for previous employees.
This breathtaking duplex apartment offers a unique three bedroom home that has impressive south facing panoramic views across Plymouth Hoe Promenade and the Sound. The accommodation briefly comprises an impressive entrance hall, magnificent reception with balcony providing space to entertain, a kitchen/breakfast room, a cloakroom/w.C., master bedroom with sea views, guest bedroom with sea views, third bedroom, bathroom, spacious landing, shower room, utility room, roof terrace, second balcony and parking.
'2 Elliot Terrace' was previously in the ownership of Viscount Astor and his family for over 50 years until the early 1980s when it was purchased by the present owners who have sympathetically refurbished and maintained the building and this unique and spacious apartment is accordingly being offered to the market for the first time.
From the front of Elliot Terrace, a solid wood front door leads into the inner entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor landing and the apartment front door. The impressive inner entrance hall has wonderful high ceilings, stairs to the second floor, a cupboard and doors to all rooms. The south facing reception room is truly impressive with views of The Hoe and The Plymouth Sound with three high original sash windows and a French door opening onto the balcony. There are twin fireplaces with marble surrounds, one with a gas fire, and attractive coving and ceiling rose. The balcony runs across the front of the property, provides space to entertain and enjoys views of the ever changing activity on the waterfront. A door leads from the reception though to the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with gloss fronted doors, a breakfast bar, oven, gas hob, cooker hood, sink with drainer, obscured glazed windows allow light and a cupboard offering further storage. Adjacent to the kitchen, there is a cloakroom/w.C. Stairs rise to the second floor landing. On the half landing, there are display cabinets with feature lighting and doors off to all rooms and the terrace.
The master bedroom is luxuriously spacious with magnificent sea views and a door opening onto the second balcony.
The guest bedroom is a wonderful double bedroom, once again, enjoying sea views to the southern elevation. There is a third bedroom with built-in storage cupboard which would make a delightful study/bedroom.
