Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The house was designed by Crayon Architecture and Design, an award winning practice based in Plymouth. The brief was to create a unique modern dwelling which drew on the classical architecture of the twelve regency Georgian villas within Baring Crescent. This has been achieved by creating large internal spaces with oversized doors and windows, and floor to ceiling light sources.

On entering the front door one is drawn into a double height stairwell with a six metre curtain wall in opaque glass, a glass and oak staircase and a stunning glass chandelier. The whole ground floor is in limestone tiles and has underfloor heating, and this carries out onto the patio at the rear of the house making a seamless transition to the outside. There is a large sitting room with an adjacent study with windows to the front. The kitchen/dining Room is at the back of the house overlooking the rear gardens and patio. Sapphire Spaces of Exeter have installed a luxury hand-crafted Bulthaup kitchen which beautifully combines effortless style with cutting- edge design. Bulthaup is widely regarded as the ultimate in kitchen design and quality. On the ground floor there is also a large utility room, a cloakroom with WC and basin, and a large under stairs cupboard.

The staircase to the first floor has washed oak treads and a seamless glass balustrade which continues along the galleried landing. There are three large double bedrooms on this floor which are served by a family bathroom and separate shower room. The floors are in a light washed oak and there is underfloor heating with zoned thermostatic controls. As on the ground floor all rooms have dark grey oak veneered doors. The bathrooms are all installed with high quality Italian fittings from Laufen and Gessi, and have striking tiling from Porcelanosa. A full height opaque glass window lights the landing from the north side.

An eye- catching spiral staircase with a glass balustrade takes you up to the second floor which has two master bedrooms both with ensuite shower rooms. The shower rooms have Kaldewie steel shower trays and Laufen bathroom fittings. As on the ground and first floors there is zoned underfloor heating under the washed oak flooring. Windows facing the rear of the house are all opaque for privacy.
