Ridgeway House is a classic late Georgian residence built circa 1834 situated in the Conservation area of Chestnut Green. Sympathetically restored to offer modern day requirements whilst retaining the integrity of the original building. With features including high corniced ceilings, stripped floorboards and panelled doors. The carriageway drive leads you to the stone steps and pillared entrance loggia. The double aspect sitting room is bay fronted with French doors to the rear. The separate dining room has a multi fuel stove and the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room has been recently re-fitted. There is also a separate cloakroom w.c. In addition to this the original double storey adjoining Coach House has been converted by the current owners to create a spacious versatile reception room currently used as a snug which has a separate stair case which leads to the new main bedroom suite with en-suite, this part of the house could also be used as a separate annex arrangement. The first floor of the main house affords three further double bedrooms with another en-suite and family bathroom with access from main landing to the attic/playroom. Two of the reception rooms have doors opening to south facing patio terrace and grounds extending to 1.08 acres. There is also a driveway to side that gives access to the Barn garage and the rear grounds which include agricultural pursuits of chicken and goats pens. This period home is now looking for a new custodian and is sure to suit an array of buyers, including growing families or those from London looking for an ‘escape to the country’ and a 'get away from it all' experience and yet is still conveniently located for road and rail links into central London. The historic village falls in the Gravesham District of Kent and is also close to the neighbouring village of Cobham.
