The property The Red House is a fine upstanding Georgian country property standing in a quiet hamlet between two farms with glorious far reaching views. While principally Georgian, the house dates back to the 17th Century boasting a stunning oak frame to one end. The light, wellpresented and characterful accommodation is laid out over three floors, blending period features with modern day comforts.
The front doors opens to a charming hall which extends through to the superb south facing garden room beyond. Oak flooring runs through to the two principle double aspect reception rooms, both of which enjoy views framed by deep sash windows and Clearview wood burners, one set in a striking inglenook. Steps lead down to the spacious farm house style kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating, exposed beams and a range of units topped with granite work surfaces. The adjacent dining room makes the most of the pretty outlook, with French doors opening out to the south facing terrace and garden. A useful utility room and W.C. complete the ground floor accommodation.
The elegant, principle staircase rises to the first and second floors where six bedrooms, and two family bathrooms are located off the spacious landings. A separate staircase rises to the double aspect principal bedroom suite with dressing area and en suite bathroom. There is also an attic room, which has the potential to be converted into a further bedroom if required.
Outside The property is approached via a gravel in and out driveway with a wide parking area to the front of the house. To one side is a triple garage which has planning permission for conversion to a home office if required. The beautiful gardens primarily extend from the south of the house with well stocked borders for year round colour. Beyond the sweeping lawn, an archway leads through to the hard tennis court, along with the productive vegetable garden and fruit cage, with a variety of notable trees and shrubs to include fig, apple, quince, damson and apricot. A pretty paved seating area looks across the garden and to the side of the house is a paved courtyard area with the former piggery, workshop and greenhouse.
