Sitting in a lovely semi rural position just outside Ripley village this is a wonderful period cottage of beautiful brick elevations that retains a very appealing sense of its original character. Over the last few years the house has been cleverly extended and sympathetically renovated and now has a very pleasing balance between the feel of the original building and the conveniences of a modern home.
On the ground floor all of the rooms lead from a welcoming reception hall where at one end is a cloakroom / shower room. The sitting room is a lovely, bright triple aspect space with double doors at one end that lead out onto the sun terrace and garden beyond. On the other side the family room has an original corner fireplace and could equally well be used as a formal dining room if preferred. The kitchen is on the back of the house and is fitted out with a collection of modern units and several integrated appliances and also has a door out to the terrace which means that it works very well with the garden during the summer.
Upstairs the four bedrooms all have an equally comfortable feel to them with a large master bedroom that has a bright double aspect, an exposed brick wall and a superb vaulted ceiling along with its own en suite bathroom. Across the landing there are three further bedrooms and a large and well fitted out family bathroom.
All in all this is a wonderful period home that sits in a great location within just a short walk of the village green and High Street.
The house sits nicely back from the road behind a picket fence and a pretty front garden. At the back there are double gates that lead to a driveway where there is room for several cars to be parked.
Adjacent to the back of the house there is a sun terrace which makes the ideal spot to eat outside during the summer months while off to one side of this is a very useful brick built utility / storage room. The remainder of the garden is mainly lawned and well enclosed by a collection of mature hedges and trees all of which gives it a very secluded and pleasing setting that very much adds to the pleasure of the house as a whole. There is an additional section of garden that can be rented for a minimal cost per year.
