    About this property

    • Ridley Farm is an impressive home in an incredible position approached via a long drive and with open views across rolling farmland.

      It is a handsome period farmhouse forming part of a substantial country house divided into two in the latter part of the 20th Century. Ridley Farm comprises the entire frontage of the property, whilst also benefitting from land and further buildings to the rear. It is a well presented family house offering flexible accommodation over three floors.

      Home office space is contained within the main house with a pretty detached cottage known as Pheasant Cottage offering a great range of options for additional independent living space, guest accommodation or use as a rental property subject to the necessary consents.

      There is significant further potential with the substantial, traditional range to the rear offering conversion opportunities, subject to gaining the necessary consents.

      The house is accessed via a spur to the left from the main drive leading to a parking area at the side of the house. The front door opens into a reception hall with stairs to the first floor, an under stairs cupboard and WC.

      It is flanked by an elegant drawing room with a fireplace and bay window and on the other side a sitting room with a fireplace with a log burner, French doors to the garden and storage cupboards.

      It links to a delightful family kitchen with a dining area and a good range of storage units, an island and a four oven Aga. A utility/boot room provides a connection to the back hall and beyond is a large study/former children's play room, with French doors and fitted shelving.

      Two staircases serve the first floor with the main stairs leading from the reception hall to a generous landing. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room and dressing room and there are a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom in this side of the house.

      The second staircase from the back hall leads to a landing between a bathroom and bedroom, an area which works well for guest accommodation.

      Gardens and grounds

      The gardens are a very attractive feature of the property and include lawns, terraces, a summer house, a conservation area with mature trees and a more secluded garden by the back door, where there is a pretty oak-framed veranda.

      Pheasant Cottage

      Pheasant Cottage is a modernised and tastefully presented two bedroom single storey cottage with a kitchen, sitting room and bathroom.

      Traditional buildings

      A substantial two storey brick building range is located to the rear of the property. Currently it provides garaging and storage and has potential for a range of other uses, subject to gaining the necessary consents. There is a further detached garage.

      Please note: the first floor of the brick building range was unable to be measured so is not included in the gross internal area on the floor plans.

      The total area of the property is about 2.18 acres.

    I love the setting of Ridley Farm - a long, private drive up to the house really sets the scene for the impressive accommodation, gardens and ancillary accommodation. The current owners have created a beautiful and functional family home, and one which will suit a broad range of buyers.
