Ridgeway House offers just the right mix between the size of the house and the grounds in which it sits. The tranquility of the surroundings allow you to leave behind the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enter into the peace and quiet of this beautiful home, all set in just under half an acre. Upon arriving at the house, you will see the generous driveway and lawn framed by mature trees. Once entering the house you will find a grand dining hall and then to your left is a further reception room and finally the lounge. If you go to your right when you enter the house you will go through the dining hall and then into the beautiful kitchen that leads on to the utility. Upstairs you will find the four double bedrooms, the master bedroom having a large en-suite shower room, and the family bathroom. The landing also has an airing cupboard by the family bathroom and an area that it currently used as a study area. If all of this is not quite enough for you, there is also huge potential to substantially extend the property, subject to obtaining the necessary consent of course.
Not only is the house incredible but the outside space takes this property to a whole new level. The grandeur of the house is echoed in the exceptional splendour of the enclosed and private rear garden. The garden offers 3 separate areas where you can sit and admire your own kingdom and castle. Across the back of the house, there is a large decked area to one side and a patio area next to it. Both areas allow you to see the different areas in the garden, whether it is the pond that sits just below the decking or the flower borders and manicured lawns. There are a few buildings within the garden, ranging from the garden room, to the greenhouse and the timber summer house at the far end of the garden by the third seating area amongst the orchard.
As well as backing onto woodland, you are also only a few minutes walk to the nature reserve which forms part of the Dashwood Estate. You can walk all the way through to the historic village of West Wycombe with the renowned Hell Fire Caves, pubs, butchers, Post Office and a selection of small specialist shops, including the amazing Olde Sweet Shop (perfect for the nostalgic adults and children alike). Slightly further afield you have John Lewis, Waitrose, Asda, the sports centre as well as a fabulous farm shop. For a larger shopping experience you have High Wycombe Town centre with the Eden Shopping centre. High Wycombe also has the Swan Theatre, Cineworld cinema, a bowling alley, a vast selection of restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and budgets.
If you want to know about going further afield, the M40 Junction 4 is about 10 minutes drive away and a few miles further you can access the M4 Junction 8/9. For people commuting in to London there is a very good rail service from High Wycombe into London Marylebone.
