A beautifully modern eight-bedroom Wyke home which has gone on the market for £2.5m is our property of the week.

Originally built in 1929, the Buxton Road property has undergone an extensive change to provide a selection of modern features, coupled with a blend of original touches.

The home definitely gives off the feeling of a traditional American ranch with areas of wooden cladding and an impressive veranda which the former owner has decorated with a unique selection of on-theme decorations – as well as a hot tub.

Inside, the property begins to get even more impressive, boasting an indoor swimming pool, a cinema room, and even an infrared sauna.

The build itself is nestled behind a small copse of trees protecting its privacy from the road and there are also beautiful panoramic views of the sea which can be seen from many different levels of the home.

The current owner said: “We stumbled across this beautiful property on our search for a coastal home. As we pulled in the drive, we just knew it was the one and it has not disappointed.

“Once we got the keys, we set about refurbishing the house as it was lacking a finish and that homely feel and I think we succeeded in creating a warm, inviting and cosy interior with that touch of luxury.

“The veranda is a great spot to sit, maybe with a glass of wine or two, and enjoy the view or unwind in the hot tub.

“The kitchen, family room is definitely the heart of our home, it's a wonderful space with views out to sea.

“In the summer months, the bifolds open onto the open deck it comes into its own, it’s a great room for entertaining and we’ve definitely been a popular choice to host Christmas with our families as we have space in abundance. The splendour of this room will be hard to find again.

“What I think I will miss most are the beautiful sunrises we get to enjoy from the house, they can be spectacular.”

The heart of the home lies at the far end and a luxurious kitchen features plenty of storage, stylish shelving, granite work surfaces, and two large islands, one of which is a cocktail preparation island, with a fitted under-counter drinks fridge, microwave oven, and plate warmer.
