Full Details

The property is accessed via remote controlled double gates with Vidax video entry system. The sweeping private gravelled drive provides access to the front of the property where you will find ample parking and a well-built detached, timber barn garage with adjoining workshop. Porcelain tiled steps and pathway lead to the front entrance which has gravelled boarders stocked with a variety of manicured shrubs. The glazed front door allows an abundance of natural light to flood the open plan entrance where you are greeted by bespoke artwork by local artist Sue Wills of an abstract lighthouse on a feature wall. The centre piece and the heart of the home is the breath-taking atrium located within the centre of the property and is where you will find the kitchen/breakfast room. The modern fitted kitchen has a range of high gloss wall and base units, complimented by toughened glass work surfaces. Incorporated within the units are two fan assisted ovens, fitted microwave oven, coffee machine, wine coolers and a central island with induction hob. To increase the ambience of this wonderful property, discreet mood lighting has been incorporated throughout creating a welcoming atmosphere. From the central atrium, there is access to the remaining ground floor accommodation which includes a generous sized sitting room with a feature dual room fireplace connecting the sitting room and the kitchen. The sitting room has floor to ceiling windows and a dual aspect which overlooks the private grounds that can also be accessed via the bi-fold doors. The sitting room has an integrated Cambridge surround sound audio system. The dual aspect dining room has a mezzanine floor above which allows the room to be flooded with natural light and provides access to the utility room and study. The study comes with fitted furniture which includes built-in filing cabinets, a desk and a bookcase. On the ground floor, you also have bedroom three (which is currently being used as a gym) with fitted wardrobes and en-suite wet room with a walk-in shower, W.C. and a wash hand basin. From the central lobby, there is a W.C. and stairs which descend to the integral garage and plant room, whilst a bespoke cantilever staircase rises to the first-floor accommodation.

The first-floor landing allows you to appreciate the awe-inspiring architecture and design features that gave the property the name 'The Lighthouse'. The landing has a triple aspect which has been cleverly designed to allow the maximum amount of light into the property at different times of the day but also provides delightful views over the private grounds. From the landing, there is access to the remaining three bedrooms, all of which have en-suite facilities. Both the master and second bedroom have the added benefit of walk in wardrobes with a dressing table and vanity mirrors.

On the lower ground floor, there is an integral double garage with a remote controlled, electric roller door and access to the lower ground floor lobby where you will find the plant room which houses the pressurized water cylinder and heating controls.

Located within the grounds of a former quarry, 'The Lighthouse' has beautifully kept level grounds with mature trees and shrubs affording a blanket of privacy throughout and really does create an oasis in what is a very convenient position within Plympton. There is also a raised seating BBQ area with a sunken hot tub and inset LED lighting. Located to the rear of the deck is a kota-hut. This timber built insulated building is used by reindeer herder's in Greenland and has a central firepit that provides warmth and a means of cooking for the herders as well as power points.
There is lighting along the driveway for easy guidance as well as concealed lighting throughout the grounds with feature lighting to the quarry face creating a wonderful ambience.

Plympton has a wide range of amenities on offer to include good primary and secondary schooling and the Ridgeway Shopping Centre which offers numerous shops and facilities. There is easy access onto the A38 and transport links provide access to the vibrant city centre of Plymouth.
