This week, a grade II listed home in Lyddington has come to the market for £1,000,000.

The house?

The beautiful, character property brags an open-plan kitchen breakfast room, lounge, 5 bedrooms, garage utility, snug, laundry room and much more.

The kitchen has stone flooring, cosy underfloor heating and sleek granite worktops convey the high-quality of the design. French doors open onto the patio, with views over the raised garden beyond.

Across the hallway, the modern and bright dining room offers an area to entertain or to relish a delicious Sunday lunch with your loved ones. Stone flooring adds elegance and French doors again open onto the paved terrace, making this a highly versatile space for parties and BBQs.

Back towards the front of the house, the large drawing room is bright and the heart of the home. Gorgeous exposed timbers and beams chime with the delightful inglenook stone fireplace with an open fire.

This charming room also features characterful beams, oak flooring and lovely views over the garden as well a door to the side garden. Beyond the drawing room, a further reception room, which could also make a great snug, library, or playroom, awaits at the front of the house.

From the hallway, oak stairs guide you up to a fantastic landing area with integrated desk and shelving that's the perfect place for a spot of work or study. The landing then leads to two of the four bedrooms; currently configured as a double and a large single, both feature windows that overlook the pretty gardens.

The smart family bathroom has a separate in-built shower, keeping the bath free for bathing the little ones or to enjoy a luxurious moment alone, plus a hand basin and loo. The laundry room is located off the landing and features a Belfast sink, worktops, a storage cupboard and plumbing for a washing machine.

The family bathroom is light, large and practical. Image credit: Pelham James.

The garden?

The large, enclosed, lawn garden wraps around the rear and to the side of the home. A variety of mature trees and hedging grant shade and screen the separate areas, and well-stocked flower and vegetable beds offer a means to inject bursts of seasonal colour and texture into the garden.

Even the old privy now creates a striking feature here and its stone walls offer a place to perhaps train a flowering climber. This is a garden that will surely host many a BBQ and lazy summer lunch.

A gravel pathway, lined with box hedging and English scented lavender tempts you away from the terrace area and to the formal side garden where a gate at the end provides access onto the lane leading to the centre of the village.

A garage with internal access to the house and a pedestrian door to the rear is a great place to store outdoor gear or overwinter equipment as well as the family car.
