There are no signposts pointing you to this exclusive community of luxury homes and mansions.
There is just a small nondescript road leading from the roundabout that most of us use to access the retail park at Marsh Mills.
But if you carry on going, you’ll be greeted by a sign that says ‘private’ – and the other side of that are some of the city’s most exclusive properties.
One of those homes has now come on the market, with a price-tag that is the best part of £1million pounds.
The beautifully presented, executive family home, complete with four bedrooms and an extensive living space is for sale in tucked-away Manor Park Drive, Leigham.
The home is on the market with Atwell Martin for £700,000 and comes complete with a separate two-bedroom annex as well as mature southerly-facing rear gardens, a double garage and ample off-road parking.
Located within a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the prestigious Manor Park Estate, the home truly is perfect for a family.
Luke Boon, branch manager for Atwell Martin, said: “This executive home has gone over a full refurbishment and the end product is of real quality. Both kitchens are expertly designed and presented throughout and allows the property to be very sociable.”
You enter the property into a large entrance area reached by two solid wood doors. There are two solid wood doors with glass inset French doors
leading to the main entrance hallway, which has a solid wood floor covering, and gives access to the annex, plus stairs up to the landing.
The landing gives access to the main house, which has an open-plan feel with a patio door opening out onto the rear gardens. There is a door leading through to the main lounge, plus an archway opening into a dining area, study area and an archway opening into the kitchen/ diner.
The lounge has a bay window which gives wonderful elevated views over the Plym Valley.
This room is a great size and immaculately presented throughout, with an opening leading through to a formal dining area. It holds a large wood burner and there is a solid wood floor to finish. The lounge has a door leading through to the kitchen/diner and is wonderfully presented throughout.
The impressive family kitchen/dining room has an exquisitely presented Laura
Ashley fitted kitchen. There are dual aspect windows overlooking the extensive gardens, plus a range of Miele fitted appliances throughout.
All four bedrooms are a good double size and all benefit from built in either cupboards or wardrobes. The master bedroom is a great size and has dual aspect elevated views overlooking the Plym Valley. The master bedroom has two built in mirrored wardrobes and access into an en-suite shower room.
The large family bathroom has a standalone pedestaled freestanding bath, a walk-in double shower, a pedestalled hand wash basin and a low level w/c.
The gardens are mature and are on different levels. There is a large flat area which is accessed via the landing, which is hard-paved, with access out onto a decked area and a lawned area.
All the gardens are southerly facing and catch the sun for the majority of the day. There is a large patio which is accessed via the annex, which is easterly-facing and hard paved. The front gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are very well kept. The property also benefits from a large double garage.
Manor Park is an exclusive private development of high-quality individual, detached family homes set on high ground within the attractive surroundings of the Plym Valley, with Plymouth city centre only three miles away.
A footpath leads from the development to the Plym Valley (owned by the National Trust) providing access to miles of cycle and foot trails adjacent to the Plym River and ascending onto Dartmoor.
