Among the homes being produced by Willerby Holiday Homes in 2011 is the all-new 40ft x 20ft two bedroom Ridgewood lodge which comes with a specification to make your mouth water!
Externally, the first thing you notice on is that the pitched roof has been raised in the area above the entrance door. This creates a loft space which is accessed via a loft ladder in the hallway. Raising the roof in this way immediately differentiates the Ridgewood from the competition. It is also worth noting that the home is built on a twin axle fully galvanised chassis and has Canexel cladding in a range of colours, plus a steel pantile roof as standard. Sliding doors have been fitted in the end and the adjacent front wall of the lounge, with bi-fold doors being offered as an option. At the other end of the lounge end wall is an attractive bay window, one end of which had been angled at about 45 degrees.
Immediately on the right, inside the front door, is a freestanding coat cupboard. On the left, further along the hallway, is the door into the kitchen and daytime living area whilst on the right further along the hallway is the door to the main bedroom. The end of the hallway is basically an inverted V and its here that the doors giving access to the second bedroom and bathroom are sited. In the hallway ceiling is access to the loft which includes a fold-down loft ladder.
The kitchen is nothing if not superbly appointed. As you enter it has a larder fridge followed by a number of base and wall units running down the right-hand wall. Included here is a built-in cooker containing a separate oven and grill, followed by a microwave and, set between the drawer units, a wine chill cabinet. Above the base units are three wall cupboards with a storage rack for glasses fitted between them above the microwave. At an angle in the corner, to the right of the door way, is a stainless steel five burner hob above which is the obligatory extractor – also in stainless steel. To the left of the hob is a drawer unit and to the right, a base unit containing one and a half sinks and drainer. Beyond the sink unit, separating the kitchen from the dining area, is a breakfast bar.
From the kitchen you walk into the lounge area. Immediately on the left beyond the bar stools is an extendable dining table and four chairs with slatted backs and leather seats.
To the right as you enter the lounge is a door set at an angle leading into the utility room. In here, there are both base units and wall cupboards plus – as standard – a washer dryer.
The lounge is basically rectangular and takes up about just under a third of the home’s floor area. In the corner of end wall and the adjacent front wall, are two pairs of sliding doors which come with the option of being changed to bi-fold doors. On the wall between the sliding doors and the bay window in the end wall, is a remotely operated electric fire above which is a wall-mounted 42in HD ready plasma TV. Standard furniture comprises two sofas and an armchair, all with scatter cushions, an entertainment unit, a coffee table, and a large oak framed mirror.
The second bedroom has a 5ft wide bed with a two drawer bedside cabinet at each side and a large framed mirror on the wall above the headboard. Opposite the foot of the bed is a double door freestanding wardrobe with a chest of drawers next to it.
Next to the second bedroom is the family bathroom. This is an absolute joy, having as it does, a freestanding bath and a separate shower cubicle.
In the shower itself is a thermostatically controlled multi-function shower head. An extractor fan is standard, but for our money anyway, the piece de resistance is the digitally controlled underfloor heating. A touch of unadulterated luxury!
The main bedroom also has a large double bed with a two drawer bedside cabinet at either side and a large framed mirror on the wall above the headboard whilst in the ceiling are two Velux windows with night blinds. Opposite the foot of the bed is a chest of drawers this time containing eight drawers. On the wall above the chest is a TV point.
In the alcove leading to the en suite are two freestanding wardrobes – one having two doors and the other three. The en suite contains a 4ft x 2ft 7in shower cubicle with thermostatically controlled shower head; a ceramic washbasin sitting on top of a two door vanity unit; and a dual flush toilet.
