Future homes coming soon

New homes in Plymouth

New plots coming in March 2024!

Seaton House Apartments is part of Palmerston Heights, our new collection of one and two-bedroom apartments located to the north of Plymouth - the Waterfront City and gateway to the South West. There's easy access from the development, which is in the suburb of Derriford, to the Dartmoor National Park too.

Derriford is a well-established residential area with an easy link to the A38, Devon's main road route from Exeter into Cornwall via the Saltash Bridge. There are good transport links into the city centre and the mainline train station. There you'll have great shopping, a thriving university community, the historic Barbican harbour with all its bars and restaurants, and the stunning panorama of Plymouth Sound. A short drive to the north and you'll leave the city behind to follow one of the scenic routes into Dartmoor via Roborough and Yelverton. This dramatic National Park is a haven for walking and cycling, or for just getting away from it all.
