Ridgeway Farm occupies a delightful position surrounded by open fields to three elevations and set within a plot of 0.87 aces. The attractive, Grade II Listed dwelling dates back to the late 1700's and offers 3733sq ft of principal accommodation, arranged over three storeys in addition to a very well-appointed, two bedroom, two storey annexe. There is ample, off street gated parking and three garages, alongside a number of outbuildings. The current owners have sympathetically refurbished the property throughout their occupation, upgrading the kitchen, improving the first floor layout and more recently replacing the main bathroom and en suites in the main house.
Entry via the west aspect leads into a bright entrance hall with a Georgian staircase to the first floor landing and a sandstone floor. Off the entrance hall to the right are two immaculately presented reception rooms. A dual aspect family room to the front with a marble fireplace, oak strip flooring and built-in alcove shelving and cupboard. To the rear is the main sitting room, a lovely bright room with glazed French doors to the garden, Amtico parquet flooring, alcove shelving and an open fire with marble surround.
Off the entrance hall to the left sits a generous dining room with a casual seating area to the rear elevation with French doors to the garden. A focal point feature of the dining room is the impressive inglenook fireplace with inset log burner and oak beam across, in addition to the beamed ceiling and original quarry tiled floor.
The dining room leads through to a charming farmhouse style living kitchen, incorporating hand painted base and wall units, fitted dresser, central chefs island and granite work surfaces. Appliances within the kitchen include an impressive 2 stove, 3 oven Everhot cooker with extractor above, Miele electric oven, Miele combination microwave oven, Belfast sink, a Fisher & Paykel two drawer dishwasher and an American style fridge freezer. The dining area to the rear of the kitchen is also fitted with a dresser unit and allows access out to the rear garden. There is a secondary staircase leading from the kitchen to a first floor study / dressing room. A spacious boot room / utility is positioned off the kitchen, fitted with a range of hand painted units and shelving with a secondary Belfast sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, shoe and coat storage and a door out to the side of the property.
Stairs ascend from the entrance hall to a bright, spacious landing with stained glass window. To the first floor there are three bedrooms, two to the south elevation and the generous principal bedroom suite to the front of the property, benefitting a large en suite bathroom, fitted with a vanity hand wash basin, shower cubicle, free standing bath, WC and two chrome heated towel rails. The en suite follows on to a versatile room, which is currently used as a study but would also suit use as a dressing room. Having been recently refurbished to a high standard, the modern family bathroom now comprises double vanity wash hand basins, fitted bath, concealed cistern WC, a shelving unit, two chrome heated towel rails and a large shower enclosure.
There are three further double bedrooms to the second floor, two of which boast newly fitted en suite shower rooms. This floor presents a flexible arrangement which could ideally suit use as a suite with two bedrooms and a lounge.
