Situated on the ridgeline just north of Coffs Harbour and west of the Big Banana you will find "Ridgewood". The property is minutes from Park Beach Plaza and northern surfing beaches. The house, built in 1970, is extremely private and has been constantly upgraded and maintained until the present. The design of the house is generous with large windows and glass doors connecting the outside to the inside. There are 13 acres of land consisting of southerly sloping grassed paddocks and eucalyptus & sub-tropical bush. The main house is located towards the north east corner of the property on a level site at the highest point.
At the start of the tar sealed driveway you will find a modest gatehouse cottage on a level site. The cottage is currently rented. There are 2 bedrooms, a dining area, a large living area with views south over Coffs Harbour and the kitchen/dining room has great views along the coast to North Solitary Island. The building is on concrete and timber piers and can be relocated on the property to permit a change to the location of the access road.
At the other end of the 320 m driveway is the main house constructed of bagged double brick and tiles. There are 4 extremely spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom being over 26 sq m in space! There are built-in wardrobes and a separate master dressing room with en-suite bath and shower. A second bathroom services the other 3 bedrooms. Both these bathrooms have been recently renovated. A large storeroom is adjacent to the bedrooms.
There is a 5th bedroom/office/studio (27 sq m) that has its own entrance and it can easily be converted into a granny flat. There is a 3rd bathroom between the laundry and the 5th bedroom/office/studio.
The kitchen is huge with a central breakfast table for four and has been partly upgraded over the years. Washing up is a breeze here with extraordinary views of the coast! The kitchen leads into the dining room which also has fantastic views through the huge windows and has a built in bar cupboard. There is potential to renovate and link the adjacent dining room into a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room.
There are 2 separate spacious living areas, one with a slow combustion stove, quarry tile floor and cathedral ceilings, the other being the perfect winter room with large open fireplace and hearth. This room looks over the 8m in-ground swimming pool with timber deck and glass fence. A guest toilet is conveniently located.
There are several outdoor entertaining areas, a huge courtyard with BBQ fireplace and a north-side and south-side undercover porches. The range of outdoor areas permits outdoor eating in almost any weather. There is a full size concrete tennis court. Established tropical gardens surround the house and the bush is a sanctuary for native wildlife.
Other buildings on the property include a corrugated iron shed (great for storage), a near new corrugated iron workshop and an original garden shed which is separated into two sections, one with lockable, vermin proof storage. As you can see there is plenty of storage. The entire property runs on tank water (100,000 litres underground and 4 surface tanks). Power and phone lines run underground to the main house. There is a triple car garage and space to park a further two cars.
This property offers a great lifestyle with its privacy, location and beauty.
