About this property

  • The Red House is a charming red brick family house with origins dating back to c.1900 and later additions. The house is not listed and has been carefully improved and maintained by the current owners, with works done in 2019 including replacing and enlarging windows, opening up the kitchen and refurbishing the property. The owners have installed key pads and lighting circuits around the gardens to enhance the stunning setting and position of the house in its grounds. What is notable about the house is the versatility of accommodation which would suit different configurations if one wished.

    The front porch leads directly into the main sitting room, triple aspect, with a fireplace and lovely views over the garden and farmland beyond. The family room has a log burner and is currently used as a large home office. There is a cloakroom with WC and shower. The kitchen / dining room lies at the heart of the house; it is dual aspect, with bi-folding doors opening on to the rear patio. The kitchen has floor-level mood lighting and is fitted with an induction hob, dual AEG ovens, integrated coffee machine and microwave. The fridge and freezers are also integrated into the shaker-style units. The utility room lies just off, with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and door out to the rear garden. A back hall links with the attached double garage, ideal for coming into the house in bad weather.

    What is notable about the first floor are the super ceiling heights throughout. The principal bedroom has a walk-through dressing room (formerly Bedroom 4) with an en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor; the main guest bedroom has a recessed sitting area which would make a great en suite if one wished. These bedrooms currently share a family bathroom.

    Gardens and Grounds
    Automated wrought iron gates lead onto a gravelled drive to the front entrance and provides substantial parking and turning space in front of the attached double garage. The private gardens and grounds extend to about 1.5 acres and surround the property incorporating formal and informal areas with lawns offset by established flower/shrub borders, a variety of mature trees and shrubs, including a spectacular array of Camelias and Rhododendrons. There is an orchard to one side with apples, pears, quinces and plums, with separate access from the driveway.

    The owners have built a wonderful raised decking area under an oak-framed pergola; it is ideal for alfresco dining and sitting, with light and heating. A patio wraps around the rear elevation and side of the house. The gardens are dog-proofed and enclosed by hedging and fencing, with fabulous views over the farmland to the rear. Within the garden there are 2 greenhouses and a timber shed.
