THE PROPERTY

Ragsdale is a Grade II Listed stone and brick property dating back to the 16th century and enjoying a quiet position on Church Lane, close to the heart of the village, within a short walk of the Three Cranes public house. The current owners have been extremely good custodians during their ownership having overseen a full modernisation of the house. The well proportioned accommodation is ideally suited for modern 21st century living yet retains all of the historic period features that one would associate with a house of its age. Ragsdale enjoys a timeless charm and the courtyard range of outbuildings could easily be converted to provide additional accommodation or indeed, a self-contained annexe if required, subject to obtaining planning and listed building consent. A six panelled front door opens into the reception hall which links to the inner and rear hall / boot room. The two principal reception rooms run along the front of the house, both benefitting from period fireplaces with the drawing room having recessed display shelving to one side with cupboard below. Lying at the far end of the inner hall is the well appointed dining room ideally suited for formal entertaining with bressumer beam over the former inglenook fireplace and to one side is an open fronted corner display cabinet. A connecting door leads through to the modern kitchen/breakfast room enjoying a double aspect with limestone tiled floor and shaker base and eye level units with granite work surfaces. Cooking facilities are provided by Britannia Range cooker with two ovens and 6 ring halogen hob. Integral appliances include Bosch fridge and freezer along with Miele dishwasher. The rear hall doubles up as a boot room with recessed shoe cupboard and lying off the dining room, is a fully equipped utility room with fitted units, recessed storage cupboard, plumbing for washing machine and dryer along with low level wc and enamelled butler's sink. FIRST FLOOR The property benefits from both a front and rear staircase. The main staircase gently rises to a landing allowing access to the main bedroom with adjoining bathroom along with access to bedroom two which can also be accessed via the rear staircase and landing. Three further bedrooms overlook Church Lane and are served by a second bathroom. OUTSIDE The courtyard is accessed over a surface dressed drive and offers generous off road parking facilities and access to the period outbuildings which currently offer great storage facilities but are eminently convertible to provide extra living accommodation or indeed self-contained annexe facilities, subject to planning and listed building consent. GARDEN AND GROUNDS The front garden lies behind wrought iron railings with gravel path meandering up to the front door edged on one side by mature herbaceous border and the other by clipped lawn. The path continues onto the main garden which enjoys a southerly aspect overlooking the woodland. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature herbaceous borders providing colour and a gravelled seating area is strategically positioned to enjoy the private and secluded views. Lying outside the main garden is an attractive block of mixed deciduous woodland providing a tranquil position to unwind and enjoy nature. Dissecting the woodland are mown grass rides and running along the northern boundary is a cultivated vegetable plot with fruit bushes.
