St Budeaux. Unfurnished. 2 double beds. Lovely condition. Allocated parking. Good public transport. Attractive patio-garden. Deal directly with owner.



Careful tenant(s) have an exciting opportunity to rent this 9 yr old 2-bedroomed terraced house that will make a lovely home, at a very competitive rent. On the popular and attractive development at Bridge View, the property is in very good condition, has neutral decor and is tucked away in a quiet corner. The current tenant has lived in the property for 6 years and has been very happy. He is now buying a similar property. The owner only rents out this individual property and has a strong interest in keeping it in really good condition, in partnership with very considerate, reliable tenants.

This house is most suitable for a working or retired couple or single occupier. Sorry it is definitely not suitable for smokers, pets, babies and children or full time students, so please do not ask. Certain applicants eg job-seekers or self employed applicants, would be required to provide a property-owning official financial guarantor. First time renters will be considered.

If both parties want to proceed, a referencing agency will be used to confirm any previous letting history, identity, salary, etc. A holding deposit of a week’s rent (£142) will be taken while references and checks are carried out. If the landlord decides not to proceed because of unsatisfactory references or income, this holding deposit will be refunded. If the tenant decides not to proceed during this period, the holding deposit will not be refunded, to cover costs and unnecessary delays in tenanting the property.

The landlord will be managing the letting herself and after contacting the Visum agency by email or phone, you will get a quick response with her phone number. If there is no response to your call to the owner, please leave a message and she will call you back for a chat about your current circumstances and for you to ask any questions. If appropriate, a viewing will then be arranged within a few days.

Initially there will be a 6 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement, reverting to Statutory Periodic if both parties wish. Preference will be given to tenants with an intention to stay long-term.

For any maintenance issues you will have access to a 24 hour emergency call-out service and the landlord will deal with any non-emergency issues efficiently and personally.

Detailed description of property:

Please note that some of the internal photos displayed on this advert are of the former show house, so that prospective tenants can see the possibilities for furnishing. The decor of the property on offer is plain magnolia.

Both bedrooms are double , with space for wardrobes. One has an ensuite shower-room. The main bathroom also has a screened shower over the bath. The rest of the house consists of an entrance lobby, open plan to the kitchen, with built in gas hob and electric oven and space for your own fridge/freezer and washing machine, a downstairs toilet, 2 large storage cupboards, and lounge/dining room with French doors affording open views over the garden and surrounding area.

There is a very small terrace with a few steps leading into a low-maintenance fenced garden with patio, gravelled area and planted borders, plus rotary line. Wheelie bins are also stored here and can be taken out via a rear gate. Tenants will be responsible for keeping the garden weed- free and for trimming shrubs, but this is not time-consuming and tools and advice can be provided as necessary.

This home is bright and light, with magnolia paint to all internal walls, and good quality plain mid-brown fitted carpets, ready for you to furnish with your own style and colours. There are curtains to the living room and blinds to the other rooms, as well as light shades. Curtains and light shades can be replaced by the tenant if desired.

You will be warm and cosy when necessary, with gas central heating and upvc windows. Energy use should be relatively low, as new houses are very energy efficient, with the added benefit of some free solar power in this property. You will be asked to read the solar meter from time to time.

There is one allocated parking space for a car only, a few visitor spaces in the close and further on-road parking available nearby in Poole Park Road. Broadband/phone/TV are available by ADSL or via a Sky satellite dish at the rear. There is no cable in the road.

5 minutes walk away is St Budeaux Victoria Road railway station, which is on the scenic Tamar Valley line and takes a route that is rapidly into the countryside in one direction or into the centre of Plymouth in the other. Frequent buses run into the centre of Plymouth and to Derriford Hospital.

Just a mile down the road is Saltash Passage- a lovely area right under the historic Tamar Bridge, with two riverside pubs. A short walk away is the St Budeaux shopping area, with Lidl and Co-op supermarkets and a wide range of small shops. There is easy driving access to Devonport Naval dockyard, Plymouth City Centre, A38 and Derriford Hospital.
