Description Luscombe Maye are proud to present 'The Lighthouse': A unique and individual, architecturally designed contemporary home in the ancient stannary town of Plympton. Situated in a former quarry on a no-through road and with grounds of approximately 1.5 acres, the property boasts a quiet setting with a high degree of privacy and seclusion, being not directly overlooked.

The emphasis on natural light is a key feature in this delightful home. A central atrium is at the heart of the building, allowing light to flood in from above with the circular kitchen below. The majority of rooms boast at least a dual aspect featuring tall, full length windows allowing views over the garden with many rooms boasting a triple aspect. The sitting room has bi-fold doors to one side opening directly to the garden, in addition to those from the atrium.

The property boasts a clever mix of open spaces which flow easily from one to another, contrasted by more intimate and private areas such as the bedrooms which are quiet and relaxing, being away from the main hub of the house. The master and guest bedrooms have en-suite facilities and dressing rooms and the other two bedrooms have en-suites. Perfect for entertaining, the atrium provides a circulating area for guests to mingle between the reception rooms, kitchen and garden.

Filled with natural light, the kitchen is well equipped with a range of high gloss wall and base units, complemented by toughened glass work surfaces. Integrated appliances include two fan assisted ovens, microwave oven, coffee machine, wine cooler and a central island with induction hob. There are views of the garden across the breakfast bar.

Accessed by electronic gates with Vidax video entry system the property boasts modern smart home technology throughout, allowing voice or app control of the heating system, audio, internal and external lighting. The mood lighting can be defined by both brightness and hue and the central heating system monitors both the internal and external temperature in order to react to changes in the weather. An integrated Cambridge surround sound audio system can be found in the sitting room.

The garden surrounds the property on all sides, and is laid mostly to lawn. A large decked area with sunken hot-tub and Kota-Hut is perfect for alfresco entertaining and easily accessible via the bi-fold doors in the main atrium. A traditional design used by reindeer herder's in Greenland, a Kota-Hut is an insulated timber building and this one has a central firepit and power points. Located in a former quarry, the walls of which are set well back from the house and softened by a variety of plants. At night, the drive, garden and quarry walls can be illuminated to create a dramatic backdrop to the house.

An integrated double garage with electric remote control roller door with pedestrian access from on the lower ground floor, is complemented a timber barn garage incorporating parking for two vehicles and an adjacent large workshop (light and power). The driveway provides ample parking and turning space for several vehicles.
