Nether Ridge is a striking modern property built in 2007 to closely resemble a period property and to blend in sympathetically with its surroundings, which it achieves superbly. The property is nestled in around one acre and presents itself elegantly on the approach from the private entrance up the gravelled driveway.
The solid oak front door with glazed side panels opens into a bright reception lobby which is presented to a very high standard and establishes the tone for the rest of the property. Limestone under heated flooring meets a twisting oak staircase and two windows help to fill the space with light. An expansive sitting and dining area opens out to the rear of the property with an imposing feature sandstone fireplace housing a striking red wood burner. A large triangular apex window provides views out to the garden and the open vaulted ceiling with exposed French oak beams gives a great sense of space and height to the room.
A flexible snug room to the front of the property is currently being used as a home office. Adjacent to this is a large drawing room with a feature fireplace, a shallow bay with French doors to the rear and plantation shutters.
The heart of the house is the spacious Broomley Furniture hand-crafted kitchen with attractive solid maple cabinets with walnut trim and pewter twist handles married to granite worktops and limestone tiled flooring. In addition there is a large central island, a raised glass breakfasting bar and space for a range cooker or AGA. Off the kitchen is the garden room which is another very pleasant sitting room from which to enjoy the views over the rear garden. Large windows and doors out to the rear ensure plenty of natural light. A large laundry room with shaker units and wooden worktops grants access to the attached double garage and, in turn, an exit to the side of the property. A cloak room with WC completes the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor is a breathtaking galleried landing bathed in natural light from all angles via windows and skylights. Access from here is to the master bedroom which has plantation shutters and a wonderful dressing room incorporating fitted hanging space and shelving as well as cupboards and a window seat. An en-suite bathroom comprises a freestanding oval bath as well as a walk-in shower, His & Hers wash basins, a WC and bidet. Walls and floors are limestone tiled. A double guest bedroom with a feature porthole window has an en-suite shower room with decorative mosaic tiled walls and ceramic tiled flooring. There is a further suite which incorporates a double bedroom and sitting room with built in cupboards, units and shelving. This room has access to a Jack & Jill family bathroom with granite tiled floor. Completing the first floor accommodation is a further bedroom.
The house has underfloor heating throughout and boasts various types of flooring including Kahrs solid oak boards, limestone tiles and carpets. Doors and skirting boards are all crafted in oak, decorative cornicing adorns the ceiling edges in most rooms and brushed steel switches and sockets give a modern finish. The property has a wired IT network infrastructure via wall sockets in most rooms.
A private gravelled driveway is accessed via double solid oak panelled gates to the front and has ample parking space for several cars along with access to the attached double garage. Gardens to the front and rear of the property are landscaped to include a formal lawn, mature trees, hedges, planted borders, a sun terrace and raised decked patios.
