This detached 1950s family home is coming to the market for the first time in over 25 years and has been well cared for and extended by the current owners. Situated in Woodford, Plympton at the top of Lynwood Avenue, this Stanbury built property sits on almost a quarter of an acre plot with views to the front of the River Plym. You enter to a large porch then through to the entrance hall, doors on the left lead to a cosy sitting room with feature fireplace and original parquet flooring, plus the dining room which has been opened up through to a conservatory making a lovely bright space. At the rear is a large kitchen/breakfast room with some integrated appliances and an opening in to a utility area and downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen has two windows which overlook the garden and plenty of space for a breakfast table. A doorway from the hall leads to an integral single garage which has a workshop area at the rear. Upstairs are four bedrooms, three of which are good size doubles with the master benefitting from an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom with shower over the bath. 

Externally the gardens are a real selling feature of the property, both in size and outlook. There is a large raised deck off the conservatory, which is a fabulous entertaining space and safe for any young children running around. Here you can appreciate the amount of mature shrubs and trees with a view over the garden, the perfect spot for a morning coffee. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn with borders either side, there are three sheds dotted around including a workshop. A gap at the bottom of the lawn between the trees leads to a wild woodland area, with paths meandering through Pine and Copper Beech trees, here in the winter you have far reaching views over Plympton.
