Property Description
An attractive four bedroom family home with fine views set in a hamlet adjoining open countryside together with stabling, other outbuildings and railed paddocks totalling in all about 3.7 acres. Equestrian facilities include stables, barns and manége.
DESCRIPTION Located at Ridgeway, a hamlet overlooking the village of Nunney, and set at the end of a 'no through' road, this charming four bedroom double fronted period house has well kept, mature gardens overlooking your own railed paddocks and outbuildings with ample parking. The original house has been extended and is now a spacious family home; it retains some period features and there is an attached period barn that could be incorporated into the main house, or make a self-contained cottage or annexe. The adjoining land, stables, manege and outbuildings are ideal for equestrian use although the outbuildings could be used for a variety of other purposes such as workshops and storage. The equestrian facilities were once used by the world famous race horse Red Rum.

THE ACCOMMODATION A stone entrance porch leads into the original part of the house and the sitting room has windows to the front. A stone fireplace and hearth have a 'Jetmaster' open fire and there are exposed stone walls and stairs to the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room is a light and bright room that overlooks the gardens and benefits from an open aspect. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and floor cabinets, a stainless steel 1½ bowl sink and drainer and electric cooker point. The dining room adjoins the kitchen and also overlooks the gardens and there is a useful separate study. The boiler room has a period red brick floor with a range of wall and floor cabinets, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and has a 'Grant' oil fired central heating boiler. The rear entrance hall is used as the principal entrance on a daily basis as the parking area and gardens adjoin. A cloakroom completes the downstairs space. An attached stone barn has a period tiled floor and could, perhaps, make further accommodation, work space, or even a self-contained cottage as a second driveway adjoins.
On the first floor the master bedroom enjoys large windows, with plenty of light, good views and an en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, a twin room and a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. The house benefits from UPVC double glazing, central heating and solar panels that contribute to lower running costs.


OUTSIDE The driveway runs along the field and garden boundaries and electric gates open into a parking area and gardens. The gardens overlook the paddocks and are well planted with a variety of mature shrubs and a level lawned area.

THE YARD AND OUTBUILDINGS Accessed via wooden double gates into a generous hard standing and parking area. There are a range of outbuildings, barns and stables and briefly comprise of;
A block built barn housing kenneling and livestock pens. Attached are 2 stables. There is a detached office or rest room with power and light and a window overlooking the yard.
A steel portal framed barn with block built sides and a corrugated metal roof, power and light and a concrete floor measures 13.8m x 9.7m.
