About this property

  • A very attractive family house enjoying a secluded position to both the front and the rear, also known as “The Old House” being one of the oldest homes on Holmewood Ridge, a sought-after private road. 17 Holmewood Ridge offers character accommodation, a mature garden and a self-contained annexe.

    In addition, planning permission has been recently granted to provide the option to re-develop the site by retaining the existing house, moving the garage and installing a new spur driveway, sweeping around the side and the rear to a building plot, set-up for a new Stephen Langer designed family house.

    The accommodation at 17 Holmewood Ridge is well presented and designed, having been extended and adapted to provide good comfortable family accommodation, laid out over two floors and with distant views to the rear, beyond the delightful mature south-facing garden. It is supplemented by an attractive self-contained smaller house, known as ‘The Bothy'. This stylish, open plan one bedroom annexe is attached with a connecting door to the main house and with the benefit of its own front door (separately rated for Council Tax).

    The flexibility of the plot adds to the options and potential, making this a rare and individual property in this highly sought after location.

An interesting and rare opportunity to either develop the site with a new home, or keep everything as one property, as the exceptional setting gives lots of possibilities.
