As research reveals that the number of properties available for sale in the South West have dropped by more than a third compared to a year ago, Annington is helping to meet demand for housing in Plymouth by launching a collection of lightly refurbished three-bedroom homes this summer.

Located on Holmwood Avenue in Plymstock, just outside of Plymouth, Annington will shortly release a selection of homes to the market. These former MOD properties have been given a fresh lease of life by Annington, while their established residential setting offers family homes in a great location to the local community at a starting price of £240,000.

Situated on the east bank of the River Plym, Plymstock forms part of the desirable South Hams district, and remains popular with first time buyers and young families. Residents will find everything that they need within walking distance, including The Broadway, which is home to a number of shops and amenities, while Goosewell Primary Academy is less than a 10-minute walk away, and a children’s play area is located directly off Holmwood Avenue.

Lucas Jackson, Branch Manager at selling agents Fox and Sons, comments: “We expect these properties to be particularly popular with local buyers, many of whom are born and bred in Plymouth and want to remain in the area. It’s no surprise that our pre-launch advertising has seen over 80 enquiries - these properties offer a rare opportunity to buy a good quality home right at the heart of the community.”

Located along the Devon coastline, residents can access local beauty spots including Jennycliff and Bovisand Beach (located in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), both of which offer plenty of outdoor space for residents to enjoy. The golden sandy beaches of Cornwall are just an hour’s drive away, while Plymouth city centre offers a number of leisure pursuits, including shopping, the theatre and restaurants and cafes.

Louise Saunders, Sales and Marketing Manager at Annington, comments: “Plymouth is home to a thriving Navy community. By refurbishing and returning these properties to sale, we are helping local buyers and Service personnel to put down roots in Plymouth. As an additional helping hand for the local Armed Forces, we are making a Service Discount available on our properties, which subject to eligibility criteria, offers a £500 contribution from us for every £25,000 of the cost of the home, up to a maximum of £5,000.”

Key road links including the A30 and A38 offer easy access into Cornwall, while Exeter is just over an hour’s drive away. Plymouth Station offers regular services to major UK cities for those wishing to travel further afield.
