This fine family home has been restored and refurbished in the time of ownership from floor to ceiling, to include all the sash windows now being tilt/turn double glazed, new heating system and electrics, and all main facilities upgraded and decorated throughout, with careful consideration given to retaining the character of the home. It is now presented in truly excellent condition and retains many original features including angular bay windows (with window seats) to the ground and first floor, cornicing, picture rails, or indeed matching these point, plus utilising the open fire places. The ground floor enjoys impressive and generous accommodation include 2 principal reception rooms both with wood burners and fireplace surrounds. The smaller of the two having the feature bay window, the other enjoying the benefit of a home cinema system with motorized screen and replacement fireplace that we believe came from Upton House with the previous owners

A staircase leads to a superb fifth bedroom (with ensuite shower room) on the second floor. All floors have a laundry shoot, which leads to the utility room.
Above the double garage a generous workspace has been created with a separate staircase allowing this to be the ideal work from home set up. This room also has the envious elevated views towards the harbour. Above this space is another room which could be used for storage or further accommodation. With its own access this may even be a space for annexe?
Grounds And Gardens
The outstanding grounds wrap to all sides of the property and have been recently landscaped. The long sweeping driveway leads from the gated entrance to in front of the property and round to further parking area. This is bound by sleepers and there is ample space for numerous vehicles. In addition there is a double garage with power, as well as a 7KW Electric car charger.
Previously planning has been passed for electric gates and a triple carport.
Being over an acre in total the frontage is a level area with woodu2013bark. The rear is grassed being the ideal entertaining and relaxing. Beyond the garage is a wooded area, thought might be given to creating another part of the garden in this large space, or left to enjoy the wildlife that have made this their home. Mature tree and hedge borders surround the property and provide a superb feeling of privacy, quiet and serenity. Ridgeway Rise is one of the only remaining original homes in the road
Ridgeway Rise was built in the 1880s by Elijah Sharland, owner of the Sharland Brickworks (where Broadstone Cricket Ground now stands,) for his own occupation. It was later purchased by the former owners of Upton House, the Llewellyn family, and the fireplace in the living room previously stood in a bedroom at Upton House. The Llewellynu2019s remained at Ridgeway Rise for several generations before becoming the current owners family home in 2009
