About this property

  • Ridgewood is a substantial, attractive, detached family home built by Buxton Homes in the late 1990's that offers a light, spacious, well-presented layout that can be arranged to suit individual needs.

    The very generous ground floor offers a good balance of reception space to include a delightful dual aspect sitting room with feature fireplace and a formal dining room that opens onto and overlooks the garden to the rear; doors give the option to separate these rooms or open up the space up whenever required. A separate study is situated to the front of the house, ideal for working from home.

    The large, open-plan kitchen/dining/family room overlooks and opens onto the garden beyond via sliding glazed doors; this welcoming space is easily zoned, with plenty of space for a dining area and a further seating area, it is perfect for more informal entertaining and day-to-day family life. The smart wall and floor mounted units and worktops provide both good storage and preparation space, together with a range of integrated appliances.

    An adjoining utility room has direct access to the garden, and there is also direct access from the kitchen into the integral double garage. A wc completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

    The first floor is home to a spacious landing leading to the principal bedroom and en suite shower. The second bedroom provides a bank of fitted wardrobes and a further en suite shower. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    Whilst in very good order and having been carefully maintained, Ridgewood still provides a wonderful opportunity for a new family to put their stamp on the house moving forward.

    Outside - The house benefits from a well-screened and lovingly established garden to the rear, a paved terrace spans the rear of the house. An attractive brick paved pathway weaving around the lawn, interspersed with trees and shrubs and planting to provide interest and colour.

    To the front Ridgewood is approached via a driveway that provides parking for several vehicles in addition to the integral double garaging.

Ridgewood provides what so many of us want, village life with easy access to nearby towns and amenities. I love that you have just a short walk into the heart of the village or into the glorious surrounding countryside, but you also have a choice of nearby towns whenever you need them. A generous family house that provides the best of both worlds.
