A unique property with a conical thatched roof, tucked away in the gorgeous Dorset countryside, is for sale for £595,000.

Round Lodge is an enchanting former gate house which looks cosy and compact from the outside but is deceptively spacious once you head on in. It first went on the market in April last year for £650,000, but has been listed again for a slightly lower price.

Inside, there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three reception rooms, a spacious modern kitchen, welcoming dining area and picture-perfect gardens. It really is rather lovely, both inside and out.

It feels secluded, private and peaceful here. The property, which has been extended twice since its original construction in 1850, still clings onto its original eye-catching features. You'll find stone walls, stone mullioned windows and traditional cottage-style windows.

While the home taps into its history, it has also been modernised over the years, making it a brilliant place for a family to move in right away.

Elsewhere, there's also a light-filled conservatory to the side of the house which makes an excellent place to sit and enjoy the warmth of the sunshine.

Garden lovers will adore the idyllic outdoor space. Here, there is a vast variety of shrubs, colourful plants, a woodland area, vegetable patch, summer house, patio area perfect for alfresco dining and plenty of green grass for children to play hide-and-seek.

Located in the lovely market town of Sherborne, the Round House has close links to everything new homeowners need. From local shops to quaint coffee shops and scenic walking routes, this home really does tick all the boxes. Commuters will also be pleased to know that the home is just moments from Sherborne's train station.

This property is currently on the market for £595,000 via Knight Frank.
