Stamford Close in Hooe, is located between the villages of Plymstock and Turnchapel, on the outskirts of Plymouth. It is a large private residential estate, consisting of 82 distinctive brick built bungalows. They are situated on a beautiful green triangular shaped plot, approximately 200m from the extensive South West Coastal path and the picturesque Jennycliff Bay, with its stunning views over the historic Plymouth Sound.
The unique and interestingly laid out bungalows are a mixture of 2, 3 & 4 bedroomed properties, which are configured as Terraced, Semi Detached and Detached. All properties have their own private, south facing walled gardens, overlooking the Staddon Height's pasture. There are also many beautiful green areas around the site, including numerous well-tended communal gardens and a large meadow that is home to numerous species of wildlife.
Built in the 1960's for the Ministry of Defence, Stamford Close was originally designed as spacious married quarters for Royal Navy personnel and their families. It is rumoured that the estate won a number of design awards. However in 1981, due to fleet reduction, the estate was auctioned off to a private contractor, who renovated the bungalows and released them for sale to the public.
As new homeowners took possession of their individual bungalows, they were awarded a share in the newly formed "Stamford Court Management Company Ltd".
This 'Limited' company, has a team of residents that run the management of the estate (classed as an RMC), including the gardens, the meadow and wildlife area, the pathways / pavements, street lighting and the roads / parking areas within the estate boundary. The members and owners on the estate elect the team at each AGM.
Stamford Close is an idyllic place to live. We have peace and quiet, fantastic rural views, abundant wildlife and a friendly and ever helpful Management Team on site.
