About this property

  • Built in 1964, Random Ridge sits in a wonderful plot approximately 0.48 acres on the edge of the desirable village of Shenington. Having been built and owned by the same family for nearly 60 years, it is now in need of modernisation and improvement, but has great potential. With a good footprint this property offers the exciting opportunity to be altered and extended to provide spacious and versatile living in an enviable setting. The property may also have scope for a replacement dwelling or multiple dwellings. (Subject to relevant planning permissions.)

    Inside the property is versatile accommodation. The ground floor comprises a spacious hall, a generous sitting room with delightful views of the surrounding countryside, a kitchen and separate dining room, a garden room and a utility room. There is also a bedroom on the ground floor which has great potential to be used as a home office, a bathroom and separate WC. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, all sizeable, and two of which with extensive storage in the eaves. There is also a good sized family bathroom. Although all rooms are in need of updating, there is a generous square footage foot print to work with.

    Outside is a charming garden surrounding the house. Private and mostly laid to lawn, there is also an abundance of mature trees, hedges, shrubs, flower borders, seating areas to enjoy the sun all day long and fantastic views of the neighbouring, rolling countryside. To the front, the entrance is gated and there is a garage and gravelled driveway with plenty of parking for numerous cars. In all about 0.48 acres.
