    About this property

    • Dating from 1850 Ruscoe House has been comprehensively and stylishly refurbished and extended by the current owners in the period since 2011. The result is a wonderful family home, beautifully presented with a tasteful colour palette used throughout. Amongst the many highlights are the care that has been taken with the retention of the period detailing and the connection between the family kitchen and the garden and rural outlook. The land and gardens offer wonderful lifestyle opportunities which have been embraced by the current owners who have had horses and developed a kitchen garden. The detached annexe is a significant asset and may offer potential for use as a home office, Airbnb lettings or for an elderly relative.

      The principal house is entered via a spacious entrance hall which leads through into a welcoming reception hall. Accessed from the reception hall are the sitting room, dining room and family kitchen, with an excellent range of contemporary storage units, an island and two pairs of French windows opening onto an external paved terrace.

      On the first floor is a principal bedroom suite with an ensuite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

      Arranged around a courtyard at the side of the house is the stables and annexe. The annexe comprises three rooms and a shower room and offers highly flexible accommodation and there are three stables and a store in the stable block.
      The property enjoys a pretty and private setting with the paddock visible from the house, allowing close monitoring of ponies and livestock.

    This is such a fantastically sociable house, I really enjoyed hearing the vendors' stories of the fabulous parties they have hosted including Wimbledon Finals Day on the lawn and their daughter's prom, this is a house to create memories in I love it.
