Description: Windy Ridge House is a detached house we believe dating back to the late 1930’s situated on the edge of Broad Oak village with good south facing views looking down into the Brede Valley. The property is of traditional brick and block construction with brick and tile hung first floor elevations with UPVC double glazed windows beneath a pitched tiled roof.
The property is accessed from Udimore Road over a gravel driveway providing off street car parking for a number of cars and access to a side attached garage, while a central pedestrian footpath runs through the front garden leading up to a large, covered porch and front door.
The property is accessed through a central front door that opens into an entrance hallway with parquet flooring. Accessed off the hallway is the main living room with parquet flooring, front bay window and central brick feature fireplace (currently not used). On the opposite side of the hall is the dining room with front facing bay window, (parquet flooring under the current carpet) and blocked up fireplace. At the rear of the hallway is access into a kitchen / breakfast room with quarry tiled flooring, a mix of white gloss and timber kitchen units with oak worktops, double butlers sink, space and plumbing for slim line dishwasher and fridge / freezer, as well as a dual range cooker with extractor fan above, built in microwave and induction hob. A central breakfast bar divides the room from the kitchen area and dining area where there are glazed French doors opening out into the garden. A larder is accessed from the kitchen, while at the other end is a large walk in under stairs cupboard and connecting door through to a utility room with stainless steel sink and worktop, with space and plumbing for a further fridge / freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. At the end of the utility room is a ground floor cloakroom WC with close coupled WC and glass round washbasin.
Stairs lead from the entrance hallway up to a first floor landing off which at the front is a home study / office with south facing window. The principal bedroom suite provides a generous front facing bedroom with bay window, built in wardrobes and access to a rear dressing room area and ensuite shower room with walk-in in shower, wash basin and close coupled WC. A further two double bedrooms are also accessed off the landing with the first benefiting from a south facing bay window and free-standing wardrobes, while the third double bedroom with built in cupboard and window overlooking the rear garden. An airing cupboard is also accessed off the landing along with access to a family bathroom with panel bath, pedestal washbasin and close coupled WC.
At the left-hand side of the property is an attached garage (currently used as a home gym) with up and over front access door, side window and pedestrian door leading from the rear garden. While at the back of the house is detached brick built out house that has potential to be converted to be used as studio / home office / annexe accommodation.
The property benefits from a well planted front garden hidden behind an established mix front hedge with central gravel footpath. A gated side access path leads down past the side of the garage to a private rear garden that is divided into two parts, the western side of the garden has a lawn with surrounding flower beds and a covered manhole garden well, while at the eastern side of the garden is a brick paved seating area looking over a gravel garden that is heavily planted with a variety of shrubs and flowers. A caged chicken run is situated behind the out-house while to the side of the garage is a timber garden shed and small greenhouse.
