Tyneham is a delightful detached house, built on the site of an older property, it was placed centrally to make the most of the generous plot and constructed to an attractive period design in the 1930's.
Extended and improved, the house offers beautifully light accommodation with well proportioned rooms and an excellent layout that lends itself to family life and entertaining.
Exceptionally well presented, the house has a soft, relaxed country feel, with stripped pine doors and stone floors adding rustic character, complemented by quality bathroom and kitchen fittings.
The house has a most pleasant outlook, with views over the lovely established gardens that surrounds it and enjoys a central, corner location within this highly popular and friendly village.
The classic façade is adorned with a mature Wisteria, framing the wide entrance porch and filling the house with scent. A solid oak front door opens to the central entrance hall, leading to the spacious Drawing Room. Extended to the side, this elegant reception space features a woodburning stove and large windows, including a wide bay, looking out to the front.
The pretty Sitting Room has a charming window seat and conveniently opens to the Kitchen/Dining Room. Extended in 2009 to form a fantastic family hub and arranged to provide a sociable and flexible space, the large dining area leads into a spacious Conservatory which opens to the garden.
The Kitchen is wonderfully bright, with a wide window backing the deep Butler style sink, along with skylights providing a lovely diffuse light, making it a joy to cook in. Fitted with a comprehensive range of units under solid wood worksurfaces and fully equipped with Belling range style cooker with extractor over and integrated dishwasher, there is also the bonus of a walk-in larder and a separate Utility Room which provides extra storage and appliance space.

On the first floor the galleried landing has a quirky arched feature overlooking the entrance hall. The Master Bedroom enjoys views across the village to the countryside beyond and is of good size, has built-in storage, a dressing area and the benefit of a luxuriously fitted en-suite shower room.

From the lane, the house is set well back and is secluded, the gravelled drive offers plenty of private parking, and a separate drive to the side of the plot offers further parking and leads to the detached Garage/Workshop, which has power connected.
The Gardens are beautiful, loosely planted in a romantic cottage style, they suit the house perfectly and provide a wonderful backdrop to the property. To the front, brick edged flower beds are filled with spring bulbs, leading through to herbaceous perennials that provide colour and interest throughout the seasons; whilst ornamental and fruit trees, along with shrubs and hedging provide structure and height.
A wisteria bower provides a shady retreat with an archway leading through to the rear garden, where a well maintained Rhododendron hedge forms a vibrant boundary to a level lawn, inset with stepping stones leading to the detached Workshop. Climbing roses are trained to the side elevation and a stable door provides access to this useful outbuilding, whilst a further area of garden beyond the workshop offers further sheds and space for potting, composting and kitchen gardening etc.
Well stocked and mature, the rear garden is a lovely place to relax with a circular, gravelled seating area providing a lovely sun trap, whilst a paved terrace next to the house is a delightfully secluded spot to dine al fresco or entertain.
