Description

Ridgmont is a fine family house which enjoys glorious views
from its elevated position, high up in the Cotswolds. Indeed
on a clear day there are views across the Bristol Chanel to
the Welsh Hills beyond. The house which is understood
to have been built in 1913 is a handsome home which has
been in the present ownership for over 40 years. Many
original features still remain including mullion windows,
fireplaces as well as dado and picture rails.

The house is approached through a covered porch
which in turn leads into an enclosed vestibule. The
accommodation is laid out to include an entrance hall
off which is a cloakroom. On the west side and taking
in the garden and view, is a double reception room
divided between sitting and dining areas. There is also
a further sitting room which opens into the good sized
conservatory. The kitchen/breakfast room is on the
opposite side of the house with an adjacent utility room.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms together
with a family bathroom, shower room, dressing room and
separate wc. Stairs lead on to the second floor where
you will find a study and two further bedrooms, both with
brilliant views down the garden and beyond.

The house is approached through a stone pillared gateway
with cattle grid. The driveway leads to a parking area to
the front of the house. To the side of the house are two
outhouses and close to the house is the double garage.
There is plenty of parking space for a number of cars.
The majority of the garden is on the west side of the
house and is a particular feature of the property. It is split
between lawn with lovely mature borders, with the second
half having a vegetable garden and a variety of fruit trees
including apple, pear, plum & damson. There is also a
greenhouse and useful garden sheds. The other main
garden area is to the south of the house.
