Lytton House is a unique Georgian style family home built by the renowed local builders, Donfield Homes. The property is immaculately presented throughout with high ceilings and large windows. The elegant drawing room and dining room both have views out over the gardens to the rear and there is access to the outside through the large central glazed doors in the drawing room. The Mark Wilkinson kitchen is well appointed and has smart painted cabinetry and black granite worktops. Leading off the kitchen is the utility room with access from the house into the double garage.
Upstairs on the first floor there is a large principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. In the centre of the landing there is a ship's staircase which rises to the top floor attic space with its Velux windows and eaves storage. This area has the potential to be used as a home office or recreation space.

Lytton House is situated in Tidmarsh, a popular village dating back to Saxon times, with its own pub, The Greyhound, village green, and parish church. Pangbourne is just under a mile away and provides excellent local facilities including an award winning butcher and excellent delicatessen cheese shop. There is a main line station and rail link to London Paddington within the hour. The more comprehensive amenities of Reading are only a few miles away. The M4 motorway being close to hand provides excellent access to London, its airports and the motorway network. The local area is well served by an excellent range of schooling including St Andrews School, The Oratory, Pangbourne College and Bradfield College as well as good links to Abingdon and Oxford.
There are recreational facilities for all requirements including the sports centre at Bradfield College, The Royal Berkshire Shooting School, Racing at Newbury and many more. As well as this, the surrounding countryside is renowned for its beautiful walks and rides.

Lytton House lies in a quiet cul de sac and is set back from the road behind tall iron gates. There is ample parking to the front of the property on the brick paved driveway with plenty of mature herbaceous planting on the boundary edges. The garden at the rear is south facing and has been imaginatively designed and planted by the current owners. Essentially the garden is symmetrical with a central sunken terrace with surrounding box hedging. Granite steps and slate pathways lead up from the terrace on all sides and there is a pretty gazebo which looks back towards the house. There is a pergola run down one side of the garden, with a quiet seating area on the opposite side, perfectly placed to see the sun set. In front is a Welsh slate water feature, throughout the garden there is an interesting variety of shrubs and plants for all year round interest. Behind the double garage is the spa area with a sliding panel for optimum seclusion.
