About this property
A one-off thoughtfully designed and beautifully executed modern home in a desirable, quiet residential area in Britain's Ocean City. Built to exacting standards with an exemplary specification, using contemporary building methods and the latest materials to create an exceptional 3 bedroom home, South facing Mediterranean style garden with spacious, gated driveway parking.
A one-off, thoughtfully designed and beautifully executed modern home in a desirable residential area of Britain's Ocean City. The exceptional three-bedroom property has been built to an exemplary specification, combining contemporary building methods and innovative materials.
With a nod to urban-style aesthetics and a great appreciation of spatial awareness, Bunker House delivers an exceptional home of great charisma. The hands-on approach to designing this striking detached house has created a property of over 2,000 sq ft, filled with an artistic array of industrial materiality and dancing light within. Injections of both natural daytime light and clever lighting as dusk falls create a palette of ever-changing illumination at all hours. Exposed concrete, concealed cabling housed in exposed stainless steel, and lustrous porcelain tiles lift and define the interior contrasts.
The roadside faade conceals the house from the street scene, electric entrance gates opening to reveal the clean lines of Bunker House and views over the surrounding countryside and cityscape.
Uniform Crittall-style windows, zinc crimped roof, and textural stonework enhance the frontage, while inside the expansive L-shaped kitchen/dining and living room zones flow seamlessly together, bifold windows bringing the outside in.
A custom ''End Grain' kitchen is an architectural feature in itself, with elements of Fisher & Paykel, ILVE 8 ring range cooker, Quooker tap, exclusive crafted joinery and bespoke cabinets centring around a large, convivial island. In the dining area the showstopper and talking point is the Wimbledon wine cellar, accessed by descending down the lit spiral staircase, through its motorised statement ''walk-over' see-through toughened glass.
An office, utility, plant room and cloakroom complete the downstairs. The attention to detail continues upstairs, with smart herringbone parquet flooring running into the three South-facing double bedrooms, each with individual ensuite and luxury Duravit fittings. A sheltered balcony makes a peaceful spot enjoy the panoramic views from the master suite, with Juliette balconies featuring in the guest bedrooms.
The reception rooms open onto the patio garden and front lawn, built-in seating and lighting set in a stylish sunken sun terrace. Low maintenance planted borders continue around the side and rear of the house, with generous parking on the block paved driveway.

In a quiet residential street in Plymouth's Mannamead, a desirable Victorian suburb of this vibrant city, Bunker House is set back from Glen Road in an elevated, private location enjoying 270 degree views to the Cornish coastline and east towards the South Hams.
Set in a conservation area not far from local independent shops, cafes, parks, pubs and schools, Bunker House was completed in January 2022, its current owners steering the architectural design into creating this uplifting, beautifully-crafted and one-off modern home.
Plymouth has a fascinating naval heritage, dating back to the Pilgrim Fathers and Spanish Armada, and in more recent years hosting world class yachting championships. It is known for its extensive selection of shops, restaurants and theatres spread across various quarters of the city including The Barbican, Royal William Yard and its famous waterfront. The National Marine Aquarium and various yacht marinas provide an excellent base for exploring the South West's many attractions, sandy beaches and yachting anchorages. Plymouth port offers Brittany Ferries sailings to France and Spain.
