THIS gorgeous five-bedroom country house in Dorset is on the market for £2,450,000.

Nestled alongside the instantly recognisable Colmer’s Hill this family home is both contemporary, upmarket and lived-in all at once.

Boasting five large bedrooms, three bathrooms and four reception rooms there is also an abundance of outdoor space which is where you can also find the wooden home office.

Located in the peaceful village of Higher Eype the property is just a stone's-throw from the bustling market town of Bridport and benefits from being close to the sea - what’s not to love?

Yeldon is an arts and crafts style house, built in 1908 and set in an elevated setting close to the Jurassic Coast.

On the market with Savills, the property was meticulously restored and extended in 2010 by local builders C G Fry and Son.

The renovation provides a stylish and spacious home that really plays on the nature surrounding it - bringing the outside in (quite literally, as it even has ground source heating).

It also benefits from a self-contained two bedroom cottage on the grounds.

Inside, you can find a large reception hall with the original brick tile floor and a wood burning stove.

On the ground floor here is library, with an arts and crafts style fireplace and bay window. At the heart of the home is the large kitchen and breakfast room with views out to the sea.

Stepping down from the kitchen is the breath-taking garden room within the extension that truly brings the outside in with its bi-folding doors that open out onto a large west-facing terrace.

From there you can also find a study, cloakroom and utility room.

Upstairs are three large bedrooms with far-reaching views. The master suite has an en-suite shower room and there is a generous family bathroom.

The house is approached via a gravel driveway and sits in ‘exceptional gardens’ housing a greenhouse, orchard and sweeping lawns.

In addition there is a fully enclosed field with separate road access, currently laid to pasture and an area of mature woodland, with a woodland walk.
