Ridgers Cottage is a 17th century timber frame cottage which has been sympathetically extended and now offers almost 2,000 sq. ft. of bright and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, presented to a high standard throughout with a wealth of retained character features including exposed ceiling and wall beams blended with modern amenities.
The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises a spacious triple aspect sitting room with feature inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove, a neighbouring front aspect dining room with galleried landing over and a stunning spacious dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, a range of fitted units with modern integrated appliances, space for a sizeable table for more informal meals, French windows to the gardens and a useful separate utility room with garden access.
The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well-proportioned occasional bedroom/ study, accessible from the dining room.
To the first floor, the galleried landing leads to a stunning dual aspect main bedroom with additional natural light provided by a skylight, built-in storage and a generous en suite bathroom with freestanding bath and a separate walk-in shower together with the two remaining well-proportioned bedrooms, both serviced by a family bathroom with freestanding bath.
The property is accessed via a gravelled driveway offering turning and parking space for multiple vehicles bordered by mature shrubs and trees and with an area of level lawn flowing around the side of the property to the private gardens which are laid mainly to lawn with established flowerbeds, bordered by mature shrubs and trees, lending privacy to the setting. There is a formal stable within the garden which provides additional useful storage, along with large dog pen.
