An enchanting Woodland style ranch house occupying a wonderful private plot within this sought after North Plymouth area. The current owner has tastefully redeveloped this original dormer bungalow in spectacular fashion with Scandinavian rustic flair and extensive use of quality Siberian Larch creating a truly unique and special home.
Approached from the front, wooden double gates open to a gravelled driveway which leads to a detached double garage to the rear and the main entrance. The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn with established trees setting a magical woodland scene whilst the rear garden enjoys a sunny south facing aspect again mainly laid to lawn offering a good degree of privacy. A previously existing swimming pool is currently being cleverly used as a reservoir for garden water although could easily be re-instated should the new occupier choose to do so. The double garage also provides a useful utility area. A fabulous "yellow balau" hardwood veranda runs the full width of the rear aspect and can be accessed from almost all ground floor accommodation. A door also opens from the veranda to a plant/boot cupboard which also houses the hot water centre system.
The front aspect is entirely cladded with high quality Siberian Larch with feature "Shou sugi ban" effect live edge panels around the main reception hall which is accessed via an attractive oak front door or wide opening powder coated aluminium bi-fold doors. The reception hall opens to a magnificent open plan living area with further bi-fold doors to the veranda and featuring a wood burning stove and vaulted apex ceiling. The kitchen has a stylish rustic/industrial feel with clever use of varying wood styles and an impressive Zebrano breakfast bar. A door from the main living area leads to an inner hallway which has doors in turn leading to a spacious bathroom, three double bedrooms (1 en suite), and one of which is currently utilised as a snug/family room.
Upstairs a landing leads to two very impressive sized dormer bedrooms, the master of which benefits from an en suite bathroom and the second, far reaching moorland views. Both bedrooms have extensive eves storage cupboards
The current owner has created a quite spectacular home with an ambiance difficult to replicate in a property still so conveniently located to amenities. We strongly recommend an internal viewing to fully appreciate this truly unique opportunity.
