Step inside this light, bright and carefully refurbished property

Placed in four acres of formal gardens, providing seclusion without isolation, the immaculate Ryecroft House has been extensively refurbished with great care.

Perhaps one of the most notable changes has come with the landscaping of the gardens. “We pretty much started from scratch, but we saw such potential,” the owners noted. “We had the land drained, seeded, put in an extensive number of trees and we have an orchard now which gives us a good crop of fruit every year.” The owners also created a lake and introduced a plethora of fish including goldfish and carp.

In the gardens one will additionally find a split-level timber decked and shingle area providing various spaces for relaxing outdoors or alfresco entertaining, a hot tub beneath a wooden pagoda and a timber summer house.

Stepping into the bright and light house, one is welcomed by a reception hall with Porcelanosa floor tiling which leads through to a semi-open plan living space.

To the left of the hallway is a dining room, while to the right one will see a formal drawing room with a bespoke sandstone fire surround housing an LPG gas fire, relaxing views over the front gardens and French doors giving access to the stunning outside landscape.

The kitchen, placed at the end of the hall represents the house’s centrepiece, and with extensive counters provides plenty of preparation space for those who love to cook. The room is equipped with built in appliances including a range cooker, dishwasher, wine chiller cabinet and pull out bins. A large island sits central in the room featuring an oak work surface and space for stools underneath. The room also hosts an electric fire with a coal effect flame, placed in a period fire surround.

The kitchen leads on to the conservatory, providing idyllic views across the parkland gardens. Also directly off of the kitchen is the morning room which makes smart use of early morning sunshine.

Travelling up an oak and glazed staircase, four bedrooms are ready to be discovered. The master suite features a balcony, views over the rear garden as well as an en suite bathroom with a large corner bath and a shower. A walk-in wardrobe offers hanging and shelving space and the suite further provides a lounge-cum-dressing area. On the first floor one will also find a family bathroom with a free-standing bathtub and large walk in shower.

Proceeding up to the second floor one will discover a further double bedroom, what is currently a home office with built in bookcases, cupboards and shelving, and a three-piece bathroom suite. There is also a games room on the second floor, which bathes in natural light thanks to Velux roof windows.

While the owners have been very happy at the Gedney Hill house, enjoying many gatherings with family and friends, they are now moving. They said: “It’s an excellent family home, great for adults and children, and we saw it as our forever home, but circumstances have changed and we are looking for something different, a little bit bigger. We’ve put our heart and soul into the place, but we are ready for the next challenge.” Ryecroft House is on the market for £850,000 with Humberts.
