Penthouse apartment within the historical Grade I listed Royal William Yard with sublime water and city skyline views


Royal William Yard was built in the early 1800s and served as a naval victualling yard; it was and still is the largest collection of military buildings in Europe. Urban Splash, an award winning regeneration company, restored Royal William Yard into a chic waterfront lifestyle community and successfully created an award winning and fabulous place in which to live, shop, dine and relax. Situated at Stonehouse, the views from Royal William Yard are exceptional, taking in the marina, the River Tamar and across the water to Cornwall. Plymouth, a vibrant university city with a strong maritime heritage enjoys its status as the regional capital for culture. There is plenty to see and do in and around the city and the National Park of Dartmoor, the Tamar Valley and the South Devon and Cornish coastline are all within reach. Plymouth hosts an international ferry port and a main line rail link to London as well as the A38 Devon Expressway, which leads to Exeter and the M5 beyond.


The Penthouse is a stunning home with superb water views of Plymouth Sound and Drakes Island and although situated in the very heart of Royal William Yard, the setting is peaceful and secluded. The lift rises to the fifth floor and opens onto an impressive communal landing. The ground floor of the apartment offers an entrance hall that is both spacious and welcoming and there is also a useful utility / boot room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Stairs rise to the first floor and the open plan living area, which is a stunning fusion of Georgian architecture and contemporary interior design. The open plan living space incorporates the sitting room, dining room and beautifully appointed kitchen with American style fridge-freezer and wine fridge. The centre piece of this floor is the glass panelled roof garden complete with hot tub jacuzzi. There are three double bedrooms in total and a family bathroom, all approached off the inner hallway with the principal bedroom benefitting from an en suite shower room and private access to the roof garden.

Outside, the Marina and the hustle and bustle of Royal William Yard, which extends over 13 acres is literally on your doorstep. Resident parking permits are available.
