PROPERTY DESCRIPTION This property has been well designed with a specification that greatly exceeds normal new build standards, whilst making the most of the natural surroundings in which it is located. No matter where you are in the house you look out on to greenery and local wildlife; the vendors have commented that whilst sitting, enjoying a coffee, they often see deer passing through the garden!

You approach this property via a large, gravelled private driveway which leads to the front door giving access to a spacious, light and airy entrance hallway. Within the entrance hall the impressive solid oak staircase, with glass balustrade, leads down to the lower ground floor and up to the first floor.

The snug at the front of the property is a spacious, yet cosy room that benefits from built in storage. It is designed to be a room to relax in, giving peace and quiet away from the TV in the lower lounge. The study has been well thought out and is set up to allow you to work away from the main hub of the house, whilst still able to enjoy the superb outlook. With a shower room next door, this room could easily double up as a fifth double bedroom with en-suite to accommodate guests or perhaps elderly relatives who may struggle with stairs. Alternatively it could be used as a gym just as the current owners do.

Stairs down to the lower ground floor with lounge and kitchen/diner lead to an impressive hallway with a generous window and patio door providing access outside and a beautiful green vista over the garden.

The lounge is a fantastic sized room which boasts a dual aspect and very high ceilings, allowing light to flood into the room, further enhancing the feeling of space.

The kitchen/diner is a well designed room boasting a triple aspect with bi-folding doors out to the garden. With a central island, integral appliances, high quality units and space for a formal dining table, this room truly is the social hub of the house! From here, there is access to the utility room which is larger than the average kitchen and provides additional access to the rear gardens - this room is a real bonus for anyone with dogs, to clean them up before letting them into the rest of the house after a wet and muddy walk!!

Moving to the first floor, the landing enjoys a dual aspect with floor to ceiling windows, and the feature oak staircase is surrounded by glass balustrades making it a real centre piece!

From the landing, steps lead down to the master suite which boasts a truly stunning design; you can't help but be impressed by the high vaulted ceilings with feature beam and feature apex window which perfectly frames the view over the garden and beyond! With a modern en-suite shower room and a walk in wardrobe this is a master suite deserving of the grand home that it occupies!

Bedroom two is a generous double bedroom to the front of the property with a dual aspect and a modern en-suite shower room. Bedroom three is another generous double bedroom to the front of the property with a dual aspect and two built in storage cupboards.Bedroom four is to the rear of the property and benefits again from a dual aspect; even as the smallest bedroom, it is still a good size double that wouldn't look out of place as the master bedroom in the average property!

Completing the upstairs accommodation is the family bathroom which is another immaculate room boasting a high quality modern finish with bath and overhead shower, low level WC and 'his and hers' sinks.

Accessed from the side, this property further benefits from cellar space with power and lighting which offers ample storage but with a bit of planning could be a perfect wine store for anyone who might be a connoisseur! Outside, the property sits on approximately half an acre of land and enjoys a generous garden which stretches from one side of the property to the other!

The majority of the garden is laid to lawn and enjoys a wonderful backdrop with well stocked tree borders giving a real sense of peace and privacy wherever you are in it!
The current owners have also installed a charming pond and stone bench to sit and admire the surroundings and there is also a generous patio area to the side, (which can be accessed via the side of the house as well as from the kitchen/diner and utility) that could offer a perfect spot to host a BBQ for friends and family, but just as an enjoyable space to relish a glass of wine for one at the end of a long day!

To the front of the property there is a large gravelled driveway providing off road parking for multiple cars and access to the double garage with electric up and over doors and solar panels on the roof.

The double garage boasts accommodation over two floors with 2 parking spaces on the ground floor and stairs up leading to a substantial storage area which the current owners use as a games room.

This property really is a must view to fully appreciate all it has to offer as well as the love, care and attention that has gone in to designing what is a truly stunning family home! 

AREA DESCRIPTION Forget-Me-Not Lane is situated in the North of Plymouth and quite honestly is one of those places that if you didn't go looking for it, you wouldn't know it was there!

Set off the beaten track this location offers the best of both worlds. Surrounded by trees and fields you feel you are part of the countryside, however it is only a short distance back to the main road and access to plenty of local amenities including shops, supermarkets, doctors' surgeries, Derriford Hospital and transport links in and out of the City. For those who enjoy a woodland ramble or cycle ride, the property is located a very short distance from the Plym Valley. 

VENDOR COMMENT "What we most enjoy about living at Oaklands is the combination of close proximity to the City being only 2 miles from the A38 and a mile and a half from Derriford whilst being surrounded by quiet and beautiful countryside and nature. We can sit outside in the evenings and hear nothing but birdsong; we see deer, foxes, peregrines, woodpeckers and foxes from afar or in the garden, and can walk into the Plym Valley with its extensive walking and cycle trails in less than 5 minutes."
