POTENTIAL FOR 7 BEDROOMS. Fine and Country. A gloriously sumptuous property fulfilling both practicality and luxurious indulgence. Reminiscent of a golden age of architecture inspired by the Arts and Craft movement, 56 The Ridgway is an exceptional property built by Percy Vere Windebank in the early 1900s. Windebank was famous in the area as a talented builder of substantial, grand family homes. An opportunity presents itself to acquire a home which friends and family will adore and which will likely be a home for many years to come.

The story of the house started in the early 20th Century when the new middle classes were demanding spacious, airy homes as an alternative to the stuffy clutter of Victorian interiors. The suburbs were becoming popular and offered a leafy existence away from the main cities, but with the advantage of easy access into town via the new railway lines.

A general advertisement ran in the Surrey County Herald 3rd July 1909;
To all contemplating a change of residence, The Highfield Estate, Sutton. Exhilarating, dry and healthy, lying high on the chalk with exceptional shopping, education, social and recreative facilities. This exclusive estate on the Surrey Hills overlooking the surrounding country and away from ground mists and suburbia, is only seven minutes walk from Sutton station with fast trains running to Victoria and London Bridge in twenty-one minutes. A limited number of specially well-built houses are offered at extremely reasonable prices"
All of the above are still true today with Sutton officially one of the safest boroughs in London, fantastic schools and good transport links.

The larger Windebank properties, of which No.56 is no exception, consisted of 3 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms and even a billiard room. The top floor was dedicated to domestic staff which before, the First World War were common within middle/upper class homes.

The accommodation is set over three floors;
The ground floor flows seamlessly through the numerous reception rooms whilst the upper floors lend themselves to five bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, a family bathroom, gym and craft room/bedroom number 6. Period features abound and include original fireplaces, ceilings, doors and balustrades whilst the owner has, to great effect, added individually hand cast, plaster ceiling roses to most rooms.
The house has recently undergone full renovation by the current owner using great taste and skill, altering the original layout and merging it sublimely with contemporary 21st Century living whist retaining original period features.

The ground floor consists of a spacious reception hall with adjoining cloakroom/WC, a home office/study, a large family room which could be used for formal dining and a stunning sitting room which has been opened up to incorporate the kitchen. Do note the ornate ceiling in the sitting area. A utility room offers space to house the noisier white goods away from an area which, for many, will be the heart of the home. The kitchen has been perfectly designed with bespoke, solid oak handcrafted units, an elaborate central island with integrated instant hot water tap, waste disposal, dishwasher and wine cooler and quartz work surfaces which continue as a theme upstairs in the bathrooms. Attractive and hard wearing, the wood effect flooring ensures little or no damage from shoes or even dogs claws! Doors open from the sitting room to a garden which, although not a traditional long thin expanse of lawn, is very usable and wraps partly around the house from patio and lawn on towards an area of hardstanding underneath a high car port.

The first floor consists of three well proportioned double bedrooms, two luxurious bathrooms and a separate guest toilet. The master bedroom features a dressing room plus walk-in wardrobe as well as one of the en-suite bathrooms. All bathrooms have been designed with meticulous care which is particularly evident from the beautifully streamlined walk-in showers on this floor. Heading to the second floor, one finds four additional rooms. Two bedrooms both with en-suites, a gym and a hobby room (both of which could be used as additional bedrooms if required).

A point of note is that hot water will never be in short supply or without pressure with the two Megaflow systems in place and a comprehensive heating system allows temperature control throughout the house.

Turning to the outside, the frontage is handsome and the kerb appeal is enhanced by the white picket fence and mossy green paintwork of the original porch and garage doors; this palette is mirrored in the planting of the mature shrubbery. Parking for at least two vehicles is available on the driveway and, as mentioned, the car port which is accessed from the side of the house through high gates offers extra parking if needed. The back garden is again mature and has a large area of patio, lawn and surrounding tree and shrub borders. A Summer House adds additional interest in the compact but well laid out garden. The 23ft x 15ft garage is accessed from the front and rear and houses the two Megaflows and boilers.

The Ridgway is a prestigious road of South Sutton and the surrounding area has a leafy suburban ambiance with the benefit of easy links into London by rail. The nearby A217 provides access onto the M25 for travellers requiring Gatwick and Heathrow. Education in the borough is considered excellent with an extensive range of both private and state schools including Overton Grange and Sutton Grammar. Sutton town centre and train station are just a short distance away and alternative shopping and recreational facilities are available at Epsom and Kingston-upon-Thames.

In summary, a truly spectacular house and one not to be missed for those seeking a beautiful family home in a premier setting within easy reach of trains into Central London and excellent schooling.
