Ribsden Holt is approached via wrought iron security gates that open on to an exceptional driveway that winds gently up through the grounds running along rhododendron avenues, passing ponds, lawns and many specimen trees before finally arriving in front of the house after about a quarter of a mile. Before entering the property, your eye will immediately be taken by the beautiful views across the lawns and pond and then southwards over miles of Surrey countryside to The North Downs. Views like this in this area are almost impossible to find. As you enter through an impressive front door the charm and character of Ribsden Holt is evident straight away.Accomodation
The reception hall and staircase are indeed rare examples of this style of architecture which continues throughout with beamed ceilings, polished wood floors, large open fireplaces, leaded light windows and fascinating interior latch doors.In terms of the accommodation the spacious double aspect drawing room is particularly noteworthy. It is large enough to have a sitting area in front of a huge periodfireplace, a bar area for your guests and still have space for a grand piano overlooking the gardens. It also opens into the dining room so combined these rooms work really well for those who enjoy entertaining. On the first floor the principal suite is equally impressive with double bay windows enjoying distant views, separate ‘His & Hers’ bathrooms and dressing rooms. There are 3 further suites on this floor whilst the
second floor offers additional bedrooms, sitting rooms and storage.
