About this property

  • The Property
    Red Oaks is a delightful village home which has recently been the subject of a thorough programme of renovation, and enjoys a private and peaceful setting surrounded by its mature gardens of 0.75 of an acre. The house is offered chain free with the next owners the first to benefit from the renovation.

    The house has been in the same ownership since the mid 1970's, and over this time has evolved with the family with useful and substantial additions and the most recent renovation programme. Works have included a new roof, complete replacement of windows, the installation of new bathrooms throughout, replacement flooring and re-wiring and plumbing where required. A major transformation has been the kitchen, with large island unit, integrated appliances, larder cupboard and under lighting. This area is part open plan through to the wonderful dining area with two sets of bi-fold doors opening out to the south and to the east onto a patio with pergola above, ideal for outside dining and entertaining. At the centre of the house is a welcoming entrance hall, with impressive inglenook fireplace, leading into the spacious living room again with fireplace. A further useful room is a study that could also be a ground floor/5th bedroom as a shower room and WC adjoins it.

    The main bedrooms are on the first floor. The principal bedroom enjoys a double aspect and lovely views of the garden, with en suite shower room with his and hers sinks and wardrobes. A further substantial double bedroom is on the west side of the house, with dressing area and en suite shower room, with two bedrooms having use of the family bath/shower room. All bedrooms are light and airy, with solid floors.

    Outside
    A gravelled driveway leads through mature hedged boundaries onto a large parking and turning area adjoining the house, and leading to the double garage with up and over doors.

    The delightful gardens, a feature of the house, are predominantly south facing and provide a great deal of privacy. Accessed from many points of the house there is an expanse of lawn sweeping from the east, opening to the south and continuing round to the west of the house. A large patio adjoins the southern facing aspects of the house providing areas to enjoy, with a further area to the east. There are flowerbeds, shrubs and fine mature trees set around the garden and along the boundaries, with potential for further landscaping if required and space for a swimming pool if required.

    Set within the garden is a charming summer house, with kitchenette and WC, and connected to power making it an incredibly useful space. The gardens back onto neighbouring woodland, with the village cricket pitch beyond.

I think this is a brilliant example of a village house, south facing garden, private, quiet, and with a fresh and vibrant interior following a renovation.
