PROPERTY: Perfect and peaceful home has fantastic views

18 July 2017 3:53PM

PEACE and quiet with open views of beautiful countryside was a combination that one couple could not turn their back on when looking for a new family home.

Not only has 15 Waver Court, Rampside, proved to be a perfect spot for Lynn and Ian Guest, but also their two children Claire and Carrie. Now their grandchildren are not too happy to think it is going to be sold.

Lynn and Ian bought the house seven years ago from a couple who had bought it brand new three years earlier.

After moving in, Lynn and Ian were happy to find that their first impressions were completely accurate - there was nothing to do in the house except decorate it to their taste and even that was nothing major.

We were attracted to the quiet and peace for the children and the outlook over the fields

In summary this is a truly pristine, well-proportioned detached family home with a beautiful open aspect to the back, along with a conservatory, fantastic gardens to the back and side which are perfect for peaceful summer dining.

Situated in a cul de sac of similar modern-style properties in the lovely village of Rampside, the accommodation comprises of entrance hallway, ground floor WC/Cloaks, kitchen, lounge/diner, conservatory, four bedrooms (en-suite to the master) and a family bathroom.

Outside there is a driveway providing off-road parking, an attached garage, a good-sized lawned garden to the back and patio seating to the side. The house is reached by entering Rampside village, continuing towards the Clarks Hotel and then taking the first right past the hotel and the property is at the end of the cul de sac.

When talking about their stunning family home, Lynn mentions its wonderful location as much as she does the house.

She said: “We were attracted to the quiet and peace for the children and the outlook over the fields, but Rampside itself has so many activities in places like the community centre.

“There are a lot of boating people as well, but there are also pubs serving food and so many places to go walking and, of course, the sea which everyone has loved.

“Everyone in the village knows each other and know all the children and it is such a safe place to bring them up.

“When we moved in nothing needed doing as it had been a show home and apart from putting down the odd carpet or piece of flooring and decorating it to our taste we did very little.

“We did fit new worktops in the kitchen because we wanted a lighter appearance and added extra oak cupboards.

“I love the garden and we grow so many plants and added new shrubs. At the moment there is so much colour out there and we get plenty of bees and birds.

“The garden is a great, secure place for the children to play as it is hedged and fenced all round and then there are just sheep and cows for neighbours in the fields.

“We use the conservatory all year round because it is centrally heated.

“At Christmas when everyone is here we leave the conservatory door into the kitchen open and the children sit out in it watching what they want on television to while the adults are in the other rooms.

“We put lots of little twinkling lights around the conservatory and all the children love them.

“The house gets the sun all day and so we just go and sit under the awning at the side and have barbecues if it gets too hot.”

There is also a proper dining area in the lounge and another feature of this room is the log effect hole in the wall-style bas fire.

The master bedroom upstairs is cream with a lovely feature wall and its own en-suite with a WC, wash basin and corner shower enclosure with rain-style shower. The second bedroom to the back of the house has lovely open country views while the remaining two bedrooms are attractive rooms in cream decor and carpets.

Waver Court remains a much-loved home and the grandchildren love coming to play in the mass of space it has to offer, but for Lynn and Ian now is the right time to move.

Lynn adds: “We will miss the house and the area so much but we want to be near our children and grandchildren."
