We have pleasure in offering to the market this stunning Grade II listed former Georgian farmhouse forming one of only a handful of individual homes in this select development originally completed by the highly regarded local builder Carlin Construction who won an award at the time for the sympathetic restoration of Ridge Farmhouse - The Harry Johnson Award in 2001 - awarded annually by the Nottinghamshire Building Preservation Trust.

Ridge Farmhouse has recently undergone a tasteful programme of refurbishment including a stunning living kitchen and contemporary bathrooms. The property occupies one of the largest plots situated at the entrance to the close with a pretty aspect across to the village church and a wonderful outlook onto the property's own private and secluded gardens at the rear, which in total extend to approximately 0.4 ACRES and include a more formal initial garden with pleasant seating areas and walled terrace which looks back to the pretty double fronted facade of this attractive period home. To the foot of the garden there is access into a small paddock/orchard which provides a generous but less formal outdoor space perfect for families. Internally the property offers a wealth of character and features, including heavily beamed ceilings and fireplaces, original period windows and doors, deep skirting, and each room offering its own individuality.

In total the accommodation extends to approximately 2500 sq ft contained over three floors, boasting three main reception rooms which includes the addition of a stunning oak framed garden room with high vaulted ceiling and pleasant aspect out into the rear garden. This links through into a superb open plan living/dining kitchen which creates an everyday living/entertaining space tastefully refitted with a bespoke range of farmhouse style units finished in contemporary Farrow & Ball style colours, granite work tops and breakfast bar, complementing central island unit and integrated appliances. A half-cellar provides a useful utility and would make an excellent small wine cellar.

The property offers four double bedrooms, with the master suite benefitting from a beautifully refurbished contemporary bathroom suite with walk-in shower wet area and large walk-in dressing room which could be utilised as a home office or nursery. There are also two further shower rooms, which again have been tastefully modernised with contemporary suites, one of which services two stunning double bedrooms in the eaves with pitched heavily beamed ceilings and Velux skylight.

To the fore of the property is ample off road car standing with blockset driveway and timber gates giving access to the enclosed garden as well as an integral garage providing additional secure parking or storage.

This beautiful home combines both the benefits of modern living with up to date fixtures and fittings, gas central heating, and fitted alarm system with characteristics and aesthetics associated with a traditional home and viewing is the only way to truely appreciate both the location and accommodation on offer.
