PROPERTY DESCRIPTION 'The Millfields' was originally built in 1758–65 to a design by Alexander Rowehead. The former naval hospital housed 1,200 patients in sixty wards, its ten ward blocks being arranged around a courtyard with a central block containing the chapel, dispensary and staff housing, with patients landed directly from Stonehouse Creek (now playing fields). The design was influential in its time; the first of its kind, with a pattern of detached wards, which were arranged so as to minimise spread of infection - lead to the rise of the 'pavilion' style of hospital building, advocated by Florence Nightingale from the mid C19.
Since the hospitals closure in 1995, this Grade II listed development is now home to some of the most sought after residential and business premises in Plymouth, with the buildings and grounds still enjoying the security of the original hospital wall!
Dudding Court is the former operating theatre of the historic Royal Naval Hospital and the developers have worked tirelessly to ensure that the exterior is restored sympathetically, whilst still blending in with the wider Millfields environment. The carefully thoughtout, modern and contemporary internal finish of this apartment will set it apart from other developments, complimented by the original industrial feel of the building and the grace of the 18th century setting. The apartment itself offers spacious accommodation comprising of a light and airy living room with a separate kitchen area and adjoining utility room. The bedrooms are both doubles with the master bedroom enjoying an en-suite shower room. This really is a fantastic opportunity in one of the most popular and secure developments in Plymouth, so call now to arrange your internal inspection.
AREA DESCRIPTION Captivating Plymouth is a charming City full of history with plenty of places to visit and some fabulous entertainment to hand!
The City Centre has seen some massive changes over the last few years and presents itself as a thriving shopping and dining mecca, with a £27m budget to further improve over the next 5 years.
A stroll through the cobbled streets of the Barbican will allow you to learn about some of Plymouths rich history; from the Pilgrim Fathers who set sail aboard the Mayflower Ship in 1620, to the Plymouth Gin Distillery which has been in operation since 1793 and the Elizabethan House - a rare surviving example of its time. A short walk away, Plymouth Waterfront and The Hoe boasts some of the most spectacular views the south west coastline has to offer.
The allure of Plymouths Royal William Yard is hard to falter, with the former Grade I Royal Navy victualling buildings having undergone a sympathetic restoration to now offer a plethora of cafes, bars and restaurants with incredible features and a welcoming atmosphere!
There are many tourist attractions in and around Plymouth to include; various museum and art galleries, the National Marine Aquarium and various boat trips to Mount Batten, Drakes Island and nearby points of interest. There is always plenty of entertainment on hand, with ample theatres, cinemas, casinos and bingo halls and should you require something a little more energetic, you could perhaps seek out the Ski Lodge, Ice Rink or the various Diving and Sailing Clubs.
Plymouths surrounding areas provide plenty of countryside to revel in some outside fun, with the stunning Dartmoor National Park just a short drive north of the City and Cornwall just the other side of the river Tamar, enjoying some beautiful beaches and picturesque villages.
The transport links are easily accessible to reach further afield, be it by ferry, rail, bus or coach. London Paddington is just 3 hours away by rail and the ferry to Roscoff, France takes only 6 hours with up to 2 services a day.
