ROALD Dahl would have been enchanted by Little Bodwen.

Used to writing masterpieces in his garden shed, he would have loved the home office hidden in the wooded gardens of this house, close to Woodside Bay, Wootton.

The bungalow was built in the 1980s and in recent years has been extended and covered in wooden cladding to give it a more natural, eco-living style.

Inside, this stylish property has spacious, light-filled rooms, with oak doors and flooring.

The impressive living room definitely has the wow factor, with underfloor heating and a Charnwood log-burning stove.

It also benefits from triple-aspect windows and bi-fold doors leading out to a spacious decking area.

The kitchen/dining room is fitted with white kitchen units and contrasting dark woodblock worksurfaces, plus a range of integral appliances, including a Neff double oven and electric induction hob. There are French doors leading to a decked terrace.

All four bedrooms have been fitted with shutters over the double-glazed windows, which have been a real boon for keeping the rooms cool during the recent heatwave.

The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and the property also benefits from a large bathroom and an additional cloakroom.

Little Bodwen is surrounded by mature trees, which gives it total privacy.

Outside, extensive planting further softens the look and many plants have been selected for their appeal to the multitude of wildlife which visits, including butterflies, bees, red squirrels, badgers, buzzards and barn owls.

The spectacular wraparound garden has a wealth of decking areas and hidden pockets, including a productive vegetable plot with raised beds and a greenhouse, mature fruit trees and a wooden pergola with a luxurious wood-fired hot tub.

There is also a hidden wood store, a garden shed and an insulated garden store with power and light.

Meanwhile, the home office, built by award-winning Echo Living, is a triumph of eco-friendliness and sits within its own garden.
