Seawings has recently undergone extensive refurbishment by an internationally acclaimed developer. This exclusive property has been revitalised and its structure reinforced.

The detached property currently contains a large 3-bedroom penthouse apartment of 1400Sqft*, a large balcony with far-reaching sea views, and is finished to a luxury specification.

The ground floor is blank canvas of 1895Sqft* allocated a broad range of commercial uses within Class E, and benefits from a high footfall and easy access from surrounding settlements.

The property benefits from sizeable external space, including parking, gardens and terrace space, perfect for seating guests of the desired ground floor use.

There is potential for future development (STP), on the basis of its expired planning permission for seven luxury apartments and commercial premises.

The property has great potential for many uses for a buyer, including investment, trading, residential, and future development.

In an iconic and strategic position on the east side of Plymouth Sound, this is possibly the most important landmark position on the City's waterfront. The site is one of the main features on the approach to Plymouth by water but equally it is a landmark position in the important vista from Plymouth Hoe Promenade. The building lies on a promontory on the peninsula which was formerly occupied by the Ministry of Defence for its strategic advantages and is separated from the City of Plymouth by a corner of the Sound and the westernmost portion of the Cattewater. Just above the property is the historic Mount Batten artillery tower, dating from 1652 Grade II* listed and a scheduled ancient monument.

Over the last few years the trend has been for increasing numbers of buyers choosing Plymouth as a destination. The city has been in receipt of significant funding, both private and government. The steady restoration and development of Royal William Yard, Millbay, the Hoe foreshore, Sutton Harbour and parts of Mount Batten leaves this as one of the best remaining positions available.

Situated between the rivers Plym and Tamar on the coast of Devon, Plymouth has everything you could want from a city - Seawings' location at the Harbour of Plymouth Sound is at the heart of this, with the majestic beaches of Whitesand and Bigbury Bays to the south and Dartmoor National Park to the north. Seawings links well to the South West Coast Path as it not only leads to the nearby village area of Turnchapel to the north but also open hillsides of Jennycliff and the country, much of which is National Trust owned, to the east side of Plymouth Sound. Watersports attractions dominate here with Mount Batten Marina, Yacht Haven, Queen Anne's Battery (home of the Royal Western Yacht Club) and the area near Mayflower Steps, simply on the doorstep.

By road the approach is via the urban road through Plymstock. A water taxi links the property across to the historic Mayflower Steps and Plymouth's Barbican. The A38 lies about 5 miles away giving access to the M5 at Exeter within about 50 minutes' average driving time. Bristol is about 2 hours away by road and London about 4 hours. The regular train service from Plymouth (London Paddington) is on average between 3 and 31⁄2 hours. There is also an important cross channel ferry link from Plymouth to Roscoff in Britanny and Santander in Northern Spain.

By road: When approaching Plymouth on the A38 take the A374 towards the City Centre and in about 1.5 miles turn left onto the A379 Kingsbridge road. Proceed to the first roundabout (by the Morrisons Store) and turn right as signposted to Mount Batten. Continue to follow the signs to Mount Batten passing Hooe Lake on the right hand side and the signs to Turnchapel. When reaching Lawrence Road continue until the very end of the road by a small roundabout and the property will be found on the left hand side.
