Ripland House provides a particularly appealing and intriguing country home where an original farmhouse, with its beams and open fireplaces, has been cleverly extended to provide light and spacious rooms, which in all provides a pleasing blend of ancient and modern living. An attractive courtyard entrance leads to the front door and the entrance hall with a beautifully hand-crafted oak turning staircase leads to the first floor. The drawing room has triple aspect with French doors leading out to the gardens and a 'hole in the wall' open fireplace. A wide opening leads into a garden room / study, also having French doors out onto the south-west facing terrace. A further glass door leads into a charming music room / study, with a herringbone wood block floor, oak handmade bookcases, and a Victorian style fireplace. The dining room is the core of the house, having a heavily beamed ceiling and a brick Minster fireplace and door leading down to the kitchen / breakfast room, fitted with a range of oak fronted cabinets with granite work surfaces, an electric induction/conventional hob and double oven. There is also an under counter refrigerator, freezer and a dishwasher. A traditional pantry is found on the northern elevation and there is a secondary staircase up to a galleried landing. To the rear of the house there is a utility / boot room with a Grant oil-fired boiler and sink unit and a door leading to an inner lobby where there is an understairs cupboard and door through to the cloakroom. The beautiful turning staircase leads to the first floor landing where there is a built-in cupboard with a hot water cylinder and door to the principal bedroom which has glorious outlooks. A door then leads to a dressing room and en suite bathroom with marble hand basin, panelled bath with a Mira shower and WC. The family bathroom is fitted with WC, panelled bath, shower, and wash basin. An inner landing has steps up to a guest bedroom with double aspect, Victorian style fireplace, and en suite shower room with Aqualisa shower, wash basin, heated towel rail and WC. A further bedroom has a good range of built-in cupboards, providing both hanging and shelf storage space. The secondary landing is ideal as a small study and sitting area. There is a second airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and door leading to a further bedroom with built-in cupboards providing excellent storage space. There is an adjoining bathroom with panelled bath, shower, WC, a bidet and a contemporary glass wash basin set on a glass washstand.
