About this property

  • Understood to date from 1927, and having been in the same ownership for over 40 years, Westdown is a handsome character property situated at the end of a private road backing directly on to Merrow Downs.

    The property comprises five double bedrooms, two formal reception rooms, two basement rooms and a spacious farmhouse style kitchen featuring an aga, with access to a separate utility room. Having not been extended by the current owners, the property would make for the most wonderful family home and subject to planning could be extended and adapted further.

    The interior of the home remains traditional, yet has been maintained well and kept in good condition by the current owners.

    Set neatly in the centre of its 0.47 acre plot, the house offers a most impressive exterior which is in fantastic cosmetic condition. The gardens themselves are mature and mainly laid to lawn, with an east, south and west outlook wrapping around the outside of the home. To the west side of the garden is a formal seating area and water feature, with mature hedging and shrubbery outlining the edge of the plot.

    Within the garden is a large detached double length garage, plentiful parking for multiple cars accessed via the gates to the front of the property, and direct access to the downs via a private gate to the rear of the garden.

    The property is situated at the end of the desirable private road of The Ridgeway, and is offered to market with no onward chain.
