    About this property

    • Redlands occupies a corner position on one of the prime roads leading into the city centre, making road communications excellent. The detached property is Victorian and was built in 1886, with a huge array of character features inside - the property feels like a step back in time, with stunning stained-glass detailing, original fireplaces, elaborate plasterwork and dado rails, all incorporated into the elegant décor scheme which has been sympathetically improved and modernised; the modern additions - like underfloor heating, CCTV, an intercom system and a beautiful kitchen - unobtrusively complement the ample character of the home. The house has been extensively updated by the vendor over the years, including a new roof in 2024, and currently being used as a 5-star B&B as well as a family home.

      The substantial accommodation extends to more than 3000 sq ft and is beautifully appointed, with generously proportioned rooms that offer a wealth of light and space. The orangery, in particular, is a delightful room with a gas coal stove and lots of glazing making it fantastically bright and airy, with French doors opening to the garden on all three aspects to further amplify the feeling of space. Separately there's a 28ft formal sitting and dining room, a snug and the kitchen, which has its own decking area for alfresco dining and an adjoining utility room for laundry machines. There is an en suite bedroom on the ground floor and a further wetroom shower, plus three further en suite bedrooms situated together on the first floor - all beautifully appointed - and a double bedroom accessed by its own staircase next to the kitchen. In total there are five bathrooms with wetroom showers, two also have slipper baths.

      The property is situated within an attractive plot surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens which incorporate manicured lawns and a wide variety of mature trees and vibrant herbaceous borders. The surrounding high hedges, fences and walls ensure great privacy to make the most of seven different patio / seating areas. Behind the kitchen there's a very secluded paved courtyard walled garden, also surrounded by greenery, and a covered outdoor kitchen. This leads to a spacious detached workshop. An electric gated entrance from Doddington Road opens to a large gravel driveway where there's parking for a number of vehicles and two electric vehicle charge points.

    This is a fantastic family home, or a first class Bed and Breakfast business opportunity, and I especially like the impressive glazed kitchen breakfast room.
