Outstanding Edwardian country house in 3.8 acres.
Ridge Place is an elegant Edwardian country house, built in circa 1902 with later additions. The property is well suited for family living and entertaining whilst enjoying a superb elevated position with 180 degree views over the surrounding woodland and countryside.
There are four fabulous reception rooms comprising double aspect drawing room with open fireplace and French doors opening on to the terrace beyond and a formal dining room leading to the kitchen. The kitchen/breakfast room is very much the heart of the home with traditional style cabinetry, integrated appliances and a four oven AGA. The downstairs accommodation is completed by a comfortable sitting room, a conservatory and a utility room.
To the first floor is a generous sized principal bedroom with a bay window and outstanding views, built-in wardrobes and a contemporary en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, a study, two family bathrooms, and a cloakroom completing the first floor accommodation. Two additional bedrooms can be found on the second floor along with a home office and a loft.
The property features an impressive self-contained annexe which can be accessed through the main house. It comprises a spectacular vaulted reception room with mezzanine bedroom or playroom, a well-appointed kitchen and a bathroom. It is ideally suited as annexe accommodation for a family member or guests or alternatively as a home office or an impressive games/party room. A Yorkstone terrace runs the length of the house.
The grounds extend to almost 4 acres and the house offers spectacular uninterrupted views from almost every room. The gardens are totally private, framed by mature and
specimen trees and have been beautifully landscaped and maintained over the years. From the tennis court, the gently sloping lawns give access to a secluded heated swimming pool.
To one side is a separate parking area with access to a double barn garage, two stables, tack room and store room. The expansive driveway leads round to a separate triple garage block.
Overall, Ridge Place offers the perfect combination of a period home with extensive accommodation, unspoiled countryside views and privacy.
