Originally built in the early 1800's Ridgeover House is a
detached stone built 3 bedroom property with double garage and workshop situated in a peaceful location on the rural edge of West Coker. Viewing is highly recommended to
appreciate the location of this property and to take in the uninterrupted views across the South Somerset and West
Dorset countryside. The property has been sympathetically
updated & retains a number of period features including
exposed beams and brace & latch doors throughout. The
spacious accommodation comprises double aspect sitting
room enjoying views to the front, inglenook fireplace
housing a vintage Jotul wood burning stove, stairs rising to
the first floor, glazed double doors leading to the family
room with a further stone built fireplace with open grate and views to the front. Further doors lead to the conservatory which is timber doubled glazed with a tiled floor and provides a lovely space in the summer to enjoy the elevated position and views. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of cream shaker style units with integral electric Neff oven, electric hob, oiled fired Aga which provides hot water, space and plumbing for a dishwasher & oil central heating boiler. This opens through to the dining room with windows to the rear and French doors to the garden. From here there is a further hallway with a door to the front and cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin and door to the utility which is fitted with wall and base units, space for washing machine, tumble dryer and further appliances and a door out to the rear garden.
On the first floor is a generous landing area, all the
bedrooms are located at the front of the property enjoying
the views. There is a good sized master bedroom with ensuite shower room comprising walk in shower cubicle with a remote controlled shower, twin wash hand basins and WC, two further double bedrooms, one with built in bedroom furniture including wardrobes and chest of drawer units, along with a family bathroom with bath/shower over, WC and wash hand basin. The cottage has benefits including oil fired central heating and a mixture of aluminium and timber double glazing.
Planning permission for a two storey extension including a
4th bedroom and bathroom was granted but has now lapsed.
From the lane a driveway provides access up to a
parking/turning area which in turn leads to the double
garage with power and light connections and up and over
door and external power socket. Adjacent to the garage is a workshop with power and light connected. The gardens
surround the property with glorious views. The front garden
is lawned and enclosed by stone walling and hedging, along
with a range of mature shrubs and trees. The rear garden is
secluded and has been well established by the current
owners, with a gravelled area directly to the rear with the oil tank & outside tap, steps then lead to a raised patio
providing a pleasant area for seating, steps from here lead up to two further areas of garden, one currently used as a
vegetable garden with fruit trees and a raised deck which
provides a wonderful area to sit and enjoy the views and the occasional bbq. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with a range of mature shrubs and trees along with a summer house.
