4 bedroom detached house for sale

Ridgemount Lane, Bassett, Southampton


Property Description

Full description

One of Bassett's most characterful houses, The Old Stables was formerly a Coach House/Stable Block to one of the Estate Houses previously found in the area which we believe dates from the mid Victorian era. It now offers interesting family accommodation of great character and stature which will no doubt appeal to the discerning purchaser seeking an individual property in an established residential area.

The property is situated at the end of a private lane and the ground floor accommodation comprises a reception area, a cloakroom, an impressive 28'4 x 10'11 kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room, a sitting room with a feature bow window and a spiral staircase providing access to the guest bedroom (at first floor level) and an open aspect to the family room, which has a vaulted ceiling.

The first floor accommodation comprises two bedrooms served by a bathroom, whilst the master bedroom has a dressing area, ensuite bathroom and a generous sized bedroom with a door leading to the guest bedroom that has an ensuite shower and is also approached via a spiral staircase from the sitting room.

The property also has off road parking for several vehicles, a double wooden garage and an established garden which has a pleasant, private, leafy outlook.

Bassett has proved to be a popular residential area due to the close proximity of the City Golf Course, Common and Sports Centre that provide excellent recreational facilities. Access points to the M3 and M27 motorway networks are found at the end of The Avenue and Stoneham Way whilst the Parkway railway station is found off junction 5 of the M27 (opposite the International Airport) and this provides a fast and convenient route to London Waterloo. The City Centre is approximately three miles to the South and local shopping facilities can be found in Winchester Road. Holly brook first/middle school is found nearby in Seagarth Lane.
