Woodridge House and Stud Farm is set at the heart of approx. 20.23 Hectares (approx. 50 acres). The house itself is both elegant and spacious, with six generous bedrooms including two master suites. There are lavish reception and entertaining rooms, as well as spaces to work and relax.
The house has been exceptionally well built and maintained, with the finest materials, including solid wood floors, granite fireplaces, beautifully well-appointed bathrooms, wood panelling and high ceilings.
Surrounded by landscaped grounds, including a water feature including a fountain and reflecting pool, the atmosphere inspires calm and enjoyment. There are two very generous patios for al fresco entertaining, one featuring a built-in solid fuel stove.
Built with easy classic style in mind, Woodridge House is impressive while also being welcoming, sprawling over approx. 776sqm (8,352 sq.ft) in gracious well-designed space. The views from the upper floor are simply stunning.
Offering ample space to live as well as work, the ground floor bedroom suite may lend itself to use as a staff apartment, or due to the clever layout of the accommodation, it could also easily become a semi-separate work from home complex.
The equestrian facilities are in two separate yards, accessed by internal roadways. These have a total of nineteen loose boxes, and there are abundant outbuildings, including secure tack and feed rooms, and a hay barn that has recently been built and can be used for a number of purposes.
A double height reception hall with raised fanlight welcomes you to Woodridge House. This bright space has a solid wood floor, and a feature staircase rising to a balcony landing. To the right is a dual aspect study with a bay window and French windows, making it a wonderful place to work. Beyond this is a guest suite, and back cloakroom.
To the left, the light-filled dining room leads on to a dramatic and beautiful triple aspect drawing room that has a feature fireplace, and more French windows to the gardens. Throughout, Woodridge is a house in which inside and out blend smoothly to allow you to enjoy your grounds to the full, in all moods and weathers.
The very well designed and spacious French-provincial style kitchen has a stone flagged floor, timber-topped breakfast island unit, Aga and large American-style fridge freezer. Dual aspect, it has lovely light all day long. Patios flank both sides of the house, for al fresco dining to catch the sun, from breakfast to sundowner time.
Beyond the kitchen is a cosy living room, and a rear hall with a utility / boot room, comms room and cloakroom. Upstairs, the dramatic gallery leads to two stunningly well-appointed bedroom suites, featuring walk in wardrobes, dressing rooms, a walk-in shower, and a Jacuzzi bath. One has double doors to a fantastic balcony.
The three further bedrooms are all generous doubles, one is en-suite, while the other two share a Jack and Jill bathroom.
Throughout Woodridge, the attention to detail and emphasis on the best of materials, beautifully and expertly maintained, is second to none. Presented in turnkey condition, this is a house designed to offer all the rewards of the finest in country living – yet still so close to the city itself.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
A tree lined avenue, flanked by stud-railed paddocks leads to Woodridge House and Stud Farm.

Behind the house there is the first of two yards, with parallel stable blocks and turnout paddocks. A further yard beyond this has more loose boxes, bringing the total stabling to nineteen. There is also a hay barn, tack and feed rooms, a garage with additional outbuildings.
