This property has 5.2 acres of land.
Sunnyridge stands in over 5 acres of splendid gardens and grounds that have been thoughtfully created to provide a number of areas of different design, for year-round interest and ideal for both formal and informal use. The pretty landscaped gardens are a fine feature of the property, with swathes of manicured lawn and well-stocked flower beds, providing colour and visual interest. To the rear of the house is a sun terrace providing a superb vantage point from which to enjoy the gardens.
Discretely positioned away from the house is the charming Japanese garden, a peaceful area that has been creatively designed to provide a sense of calm and tranquillity.
The house is approached via a sweeping gravelled driveway that culminates in a turning circle and provides ample parking for several vehicles, in addition to covered parking within the double garage.
Located off the driveway is the Barn, an outbuilding comprising two rooms, one with high level storage space, a shower room and an adjoining garden/machinery store (housing a small red tractor that is included in the property sale). This building provides excellent hobby/recreational space and would be ideal for those seeking to work from home. Further along, and also reached from the driveway, is a stable block with three stables and a tack room/feed store.
To the north-east is a vegetable garden, a summerhouse with a log burner, and a mature orchard containing numerous trees including apple, pear, plum, walnut and fig. Beyond this is a field with specimen trees and an adjoining paddock.
