Lydes Vale House is situated in a lovely rural and tucked away setting surrounded by its land with extensive open country views. It is approached over a long private access off Dodington Lane and the south east boundary adjoins the Players Golf Course at Codrington.

The property is believed to have been built in 1985. When the present owners purchased in 2008 it was in need of complete modernisation. It has since been virtually rebuilt, redesigned and extended, to take full advantage of its stunning setting. The contemporary interior is striking with emphasis given to light, open plan living space on the ground floor in order to bring the views into the house. There are ceramic floors and the south east and north east elevations are mainly glazed with doors opening into the large entertaining area with wonderful views. The whole property, including its grounds, are extremely well-presented and all rooms have superb open country views.

The impressive reception hall opens into the L shape dining/sitting/garden room which wrap around a central brick fireplace fitted with a log burning stove. The open plan bespoke kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with solid wood painted units with matching dresser and integrated appliances include electric Aga, cabinet fridge/freezer, dish washer, hob and island unit with breakfast bar. Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom off the reception hall, utility room and study. On the first floor, the principal bedroom has a dressing room with fitted furniture and bath/shower room. There are three further bedrooms, a Jack and Jill shower room, and a family shower room. The bath and shower rooms are fitted to a high specification.

The annex lies to the south west of the house and has a small garden. On the ground floor is a kitchen/breakfast room. The first floor includes a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. It is centrally heated.

Lydes Vale House is approached through electrically operated gates and over an impressive long drive, with a pond and lawn on either side. The drive leads to a turning circle in front of the house, a three bay carport and a detached double garage/gym with an adjoining indoor kennel and garden store. Adjoining is a covered log store.

At the rear of the house, facing south east with lovely open views, is a large stone paved area spanning the width of the house, designed for entertaining. There is an outdoor kitchen with barbecue and wine cooler on decking under a pergola. Adjacent is an especially designed stone “wishing well” with pitched roof. Note: Water has not been commissioned and therefore is unfinished.

The level pasture land lies principally to the south east and north east and is visible from the house. One paddock lies to the south west. The land is divided into seven well maintained paddocks divided by post and rail fencing. The property is very accessible to bridleways and there are no footpaths crossing the land.

At the head of the main entrance, beside the annexe, the drive branches to a large parking yard and continues past the lunge pen and all-weather arena (25 metres x 45 metres) to the superb, recently built, block and tiled stables with overhang. The thirteen stables, which include foaling boxes, are grouped around a central open courtyard. There is power, light and security lighting. The stables could easily be converted to garaging, a studio or similar.

Behind the stables is a modern 50' agricultural barn, beside which is a 75' five bay open fronted hay barn.

In total the property amounts to 31.75 acres.

A second access lies to the southeast and also leads to the equestrian facilities, stables and one paddock.
