Admiralty House is steeped in local and military history and you immediately sense the significance of the building as you enter the reception lobby and read the names of the former residents over the centuries including aristocracy and high ranking military commanders. Whilst the building has lost none of this sense of grandeur the apartments have been sympathetically designed for modern living.

The history of Admiralty House

Grade II listed Admiralty House, originally occupied by the Governor of Plymouth and most recently the residence of the senior Port Admiral, has witnessed many historic events over the years and hosted luminaries such as King George V and Winston Churchill.


Designed by architect James Wyatt and originally named Government House the building was completed in c.1793 as the grand residence for the Governor.


The flanking courtyards and pavilions were added in c.1815 along with the entrance porch on the north side.


In the mid-1840s, the role of Governor was dissolved, and Government House was handed over to the Army for occupation by the General Officer commanding the Western District.


In 1935 ownership changed from the Army to the Navy and the building was renamed Admiralty House and became the residence of the senior Port Admiral, the Naval Commander in Chief of Plymouth.


Remains in MOD ownership until 2006 when the site was sold for regeneration.


Mount Wise (Devon) Limited starts construction of first new homes in 2010 and to date over 300 house and apartments completed.


Conversion and refurbishment of the existing listed courtyards and pavilions was completed in 2015.


Planning consent to convert and refurbish Admiralty House into 12 individual apartments was granted in 2017.


The conversion of Admiralty House will preserve the building long into the future.

Wider benefits

Each apartment will benefit from 2 or 3 allocated parking spaces within a private parking area with three additional visitor parking spaces available for shared use.

Owners will enjoy private use of Admiralty Gardens, with its mature elevated south facing lawns overlooking the River Tamar towards Cornwall, the Hamoaze and Plymouth Sound.
