About this property

  • Ravenswood is a wonderful detached house dating from the early 20th century, set in beautiful grounds located in a highly secluded setting on the Battledown Estate.

    With very generous accommodation arranged over two floors, the living space is beautifully balanced with a four large double bedrooms on the first floor. There is a family shower room as well as an en suite and dressing room to bedroom one. A large landing space is currently arranged as a study area with built in office furniture, above which is the loft access. Worthy of particular mention, the loft offers huge potential for further accommodation subject to any consents or permissions.

    From the driveway, the entrance door leads in to the centre of the house and is very wide, with the stair case to the first floor straight ahead. Doors either side provide access to the sitting room and the drawing room, both with bay windows and fitted log burners. From the drawing room, a wide opening leads in to the dining room, also with a bay window and a returning door to the hall.

    From the sitting room, a door leads in to the kitchen/breakfast room, which comprises a range of cupboard and drawer units at base and eye level, granite worksurfaces and a central island unit with inset sink. Beyond is an orangery, accessed through double doors, with partial glazing on three sides and a pitched glazed roof with ventilation, and with a further pair of doors in to the garden.

    At the back of the house is a TV room, large utility/laundry room and downstairs shower room.

    Outside, the gardens and grounds are extensive and amount to about three quarters of an acre. From Stanley Road, a pair of electric gates lead on to the tarmac driveway which sweeps down to the house and the double garage. The remaining gardens are laid mostly to lawn, interspersed with mature plants and shrubs, and a variety of mature trees. Passing a lovely water feature, at the end of the garden is a fabulous breeze hut. Immediately to the rear of the house is a decked area for al fresco dining, positioned so as to enjoy the evening sunshine.

I love The Battledown Estate. It offers an unrivalled combination of privacy, seclusion and views but with excellent access to the town centre and local schooling. Just fabulous!
