The property was sold in February 2021 and we have adapted our original plans to create a unique and bespoke design to suit the buyers requirements.

This house still boasts five bedrooms, one bathroom, one en-suite, 2 x WCs and three reception rooms with an open plan kitchen/ diner.

The previous owner of the dilapidated five-bedroom house in Plymouth had been forced to give it up – more than two decades after it was abandoned. The eyesore three-storey terrace in Stoke has been left to rot for more than 20 years. Squatters, rats and vandals have plagued the property in Stuart Road ever since – as the owner had failed to keep weeds outside under control.

The local authorities were forced to use a compulsory purchase order to reclaim the grand but decaying old terrace as part of a war on empty homes across the city.

Now… the 5 bedroom house is reinstated as a beautiful luxe, modern high end home to live in which took Living by Sophia & Team 4 months to work through. The property was sold off plan during an extensive renovation which is what enabled Living by Sophia to successfully meet the requests of the prospective buyers.

Living by Sophia acquired this property to do what they do best and transform a neglected property into a high end house for someone else to call home.

Extensive changes and alterations took place for this four storey development and Living by Sophia achieved the project in a mere 4 month period, the floorspace has altered dramatically to what once was, the new designs are detailed below, a much better use of space creating a fluent flow from top to bottom.

The ground floor of the property consists of two huge reception rooms with the addition of a victorian fitted fireplaces still to be fitted and wood flooring to still be chosen by the client. Ceiling roses own the ceilings in both rooms along with the original coving along. On the ground floor is a large luxe & modern open plan fitted kitchen/ diner area equipped with every appliance needed, a beautiful island and rear bifold anthracite doors leading to the back garden to be designed.

The first floor leads to a large family bathroom and one large double bedroom, the theme followed throughout showcases Farrow & Ball, of which is an Ammonite and Railings palette with brass aspect features.

The second floor holds two further two incredibly spacious double bedrooms, one of which is going to be a dressing room, not to mention the ensuite, creating collaborative space for the new owners.

The top floor holds the further two bedrooms with the second WC.

Various elements of the renovation works completed at Stuart Road consist of;

  • New windows
  • New anthracite bifold doors
  • New kitchen
  • New bathroom
  • New floor plan space to create collaborative construction
  • Master bedroom ensuite
  • Two new WCs
  • Full plaster through out
  • Full decoration
  • New flooring

The palette used in this property has been designed especially to create luxe high end modern living in mind. The additions such as ceiling details, brass fixtures and fittings, tall skirting boards, original dado rails and architraves were intentionally utilised to keep the house in line with its period design as per the requests of the prospective buyers.

All rooms are finished to an extremely high standard to produce a finish Living by Sophia set out to achieve.
