7 bedroom detached house for saleRipley
Sitting in the beautiful Surrey village of Ripley and just a few paces from the High Street and the village green, this is a landmark, Grade II listed Georgian house of outstanding character. Throughout the house, there are a whole host of beautiful features associated with houses of this vintage that add to the overall feel and that undoubtedly contribute to what is a spectacular family home. The property has been a hugely enjoyed family home for our clients and is without doubt a house that beautifully combines all of the feel of its period with the expectations that come with modern day family life. There is an enormous degree of flexibility as well to the way in which the accommodation can be used, not only in the main house but also in the separate annexe which would make ideal nanny/relative accommodation or alternatively, a superb home office.
The house is approached by way of a substantial driveway with steps that leads up to a beautiful pillared entrance porch which in turn opens into a beautifully welcoming reception hall with a stunning fireplace which in turn leads to many of the principal living rooms. The fabulous family sized kitchen/breakfast room undoubtedly feels like the heart of the home and has a stunning roof lantern that allows natural light to flood into this area and has a bank of windows with double open doors between which lead out onto the south facing terrace and garden beyond. The kitchen is beautifully fitted out with a whole range of wood units and granite worktops and includes numerous integrated appliances. Beside the kitchen is a very warm and comfortable dining room with a fireplace and floor to ceiling windows with their original shutters that overlook the garden. The principal drawing room is an exceptionally elegant room with a delightful bay window looking over the rear garden and a striking central fireplace. The remaining reception rooms on the ground floor are made up of a very comfortable family room adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room, a delightful sitting room with doors out onto the rear garden and a square bay window to the side and further to this, an excellent study.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, the master of which has a very large en-suite as well as direct access onto a superb roof terrace which not only takes advantage of its westerly aspect to catch the afternoon and evening sun but also has a beautiful outlook over Ripley village green and cricket ground. Between bedrooms two and three there is a jack'n'jill en suite shower room while bedroom four and five share the use of a very attractive family bathroom. On the upper floors, there are three further bedrooms and a further family bathroom.
Across the courtyard from the main house there is a detached 2 storey cottage with a large open plan sitting room/kitchen on the ground floor with a large bedroom above. This whole area could equally well be used for relative accommodation as it could for a home office. At the back of the annexe there is a large gymnasium, a small separate office with a cloakroom and a further large store room. All in all, this is a fabulous period home in a wonderfully attractive village setting.
Garden & Exterior
The property is approached through the front through a 5 bar gate onto a walled and enclosed driveway that makes a fabulous approach to the house. The garden surrounds the house on two sides and is therefore beautifully positioned to take advantage of the sun throughout the larger part of the day and is also beautifully enclosed creating a wonderful sense of privacy. The garden is principally laid to lawn while adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room is a large south facing sun terrace which makes an ideal spot for eating outside during the spring and summer months. On the westerly side of the house, there is a further area of decking which is ideally positioned to catch the afternoon and evening sun and is also a delightfully private and secluded part of the garden. Part of the garden is enclosed by a beautiful period brick wall while the rest is surrounded by a collection of mature trees and tall conifer hedging that provides the whole with exceptional privacy.
The historic village of Ripley is situated in a very accessible and convenient location just off the A3, north of Guildford. It is a village with a great deal of local history that comes through in the string of beautiful period buildings that line the High Street and which give it such a charming and pleasing feel. The village is surprisingly well stocked with local shops that very much cater for everyday needs and has a number of traditional English pubs as well as several restaurants. Once a month there is a very popular Farmer's market on the village green which is purported to be one of the largest in England and where the local cricket club also resides. When you feel the need for something more comprehensive however, rather than the gentle pace of village life, the beautiful county town of Guildford is just a short drive away with its historic cobbled high street and all the shops and restaurants that you could wish for. Just a short drive in the other direction will take you up onto the A3 for access into London and this connects with the M25 for those times when you have need of the airports. Ripley as a whole is surrounded by miles of open countryside much of which is on the doorstep where you can walk until your heart is content along footpaths and waterways. A short drive will take you out into the Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty. In all, this is a superb English village setting within easy reach of the town and the countryside.
