An individual detached 4 bedroom family home with a studio annexe set in approximately 0.25 of an acre and ripe for modernisation. The property is ideally located on the edge of town and yet convenient to amenities. EPC Band F

The Property - Built in 1956 to an individual design, Lydbury House is a marvellous detached home which is now available on the open market for the first time. Having been occupied by the original owners for the past 5 decades, the property has served as a fantastic family home but now offers great scope for rejuvenation and modernisation to create a spacious, personalised property which reflects an individual lifestyle. Unusually for properties within such easy reach of town centre amenities, Lydbury House occupies a generous plot of approximately a quarter of an acre, much of which is arranged as south-facing lawns with great potential for landscaping if desired. Another key benefit of the property is the studio annexe which represents the opportunity to create a home office, hobby space or ancillary accommodation suitable for housing dependent relatives or teenage children. In summary, this wonderful, varied property can easily be adapted to suit the needs of an incoming purchaser who seeks a well rounded and versatile home for a growing family.
Internally the accommodation is arranged over two floors with rooms accessed from central hallways as follows;

Kitchen - Fitted with a range of units and benefitting from a large, shelved larder offering excellent storage for cookware and store cupboard ingredients, the kitchen enjoys a door to the rear and a charming outlook across the garden. Further assets include a cupboard ideal for storing household items and a nook into which a cooker can be inserted. We understand that the original black and white tiles are still in place beneath the current flooring.

Study - A useful space which is filled with natural light due to a dual aspect with windows to the front and side, the study is an excellent space for those working from home. Alternatively, this room could lend itself to use as a snug or play/homework room for children, or could be re-purposed as a ground floor bedroom if required.

Sitting Room - The sitting room is a comfortable space which benefits from a brick open fireplace and dual aspect windows to the side and rear, offering a lovely outlook across the garden.

Dining Room - With a retro tiled fireplace as a centrepiece, the dining room offers friendly surroundings for formal and informal occasions.

First Floor - From a central hallway on the ground floor, into which the lobby from the front door (adjacent to which is a large under stair cupboard) leads, stairs rise to a galleried first floor landing which gives access to;

Bedroom 1 - A generous double room with plentiful built in wardrobe space and dual aspect windows to the rear and side.

Bedroom 2 - A room enjoying double proportions and dual aspect windows.

Bedroom 3 - A large single or double room with a rear aspect window overlooking the rear garden.

Bedroom 4 - A large single or double room with a side aspect window and a generous, shelved airing cupboard housing a hot water tank.

Bathroom - Fitted with a bath with a shower over and WC.

Wc - The WC is separate from the bathroom but it is believed that the wall between these rooms could be removed to create one large bathroom if desired.

Annexe - Separate from the house and adjoining the garage, the annexe comprises a large studio room and a shower room which are connected by an entrance hallway. The studio room benefits from a bay window which serves the dual purpose of providing a green outlook across the garden and ensuring that this room is filled with natural light.

Outside - Lydbury House occupies a generous plot of approximately a quarter of an acre with the house standing near the centre of the plot and therefore enjoying an advantageous position set back from the road. The property is approached along a gated, gravel driveway culminating in a parking and turning area for a number of vehicles from which the garage can be accessed via an up-and-over door. A sweep of lawn in front of the property separates the front elevation from the street, enhancing the sense of privacy, and from here a path leads between the garage and the house to the rear garden which is primarily laid to level lawn with established shrub borders and a paved sun terrace abutting the rear of the house.

Situation - Combe Street Lane is a highly sought after road on the fringe of Yeovil which benefits from easy access to the town centre either on foot or by bus. Families are well catered for here with a large recreation ground accessed directly from Combe Street Lane and a variety of well reputed state and independent schools both within the town and further afield, with The Park, Hazelgrove, Sherborne Schools and Millfield at Street all within easy reach.
Transport links are excellent with the A303 trunk road accessible with 10 minutes drive and two train stations within Yeovil which offer regular services to London (Waterloo) and Exeter from Yeovil Junction and Bristol and Bath from Yeovil Penn Mill.

Services - Mains water, drainage and electricity. Oil fired central heating. Mains gas is available in the locality but is not currently connected. UPVC double glazed windows have been installed throughout much of the property.

Directions - From Yeovil Hospital Roundabout follow the A37 towards Ilchester, taking the second exit at the next roundabout to stay on this road. Continue past Tesco Express and at the next roundabout turn right onto Combe Street Lane then almost immediately right again into the layby. The property can be found second in from the right.
