About this property

  • Built in 1996 by Berkeley Homes, Redwood House is an impressive detached family home characterised in an attractive Sussex style with brick, part tile-hung and part timbered elevations. The house is located in the sought-after Maresfield Park private estate and set in established, well-stocked gardens of around an acre, allowing privacy without seclusion. The light and bright accommodation is arranged over two floors, extends to a generous 4,085 sq ft and is well presented throughout, with features including both working and feature fireplaces, high ceilings, picture and dado rails, and timber framed double glazed casement windows; glazed double doors between many of the rooms on the ground floor add to the spacious feel and create a pleasing flow between the living spaces.

    The full extent and layout of the house can be seen on the accompanying floor plan. The welcoming entrance hall lies central to the ground floor, with double doors opening to both the elegant dual-aspect drawing room which features a marble coal-effect gas fire, and the sitting room. Accessed from the drawing room is a magnificent games room, a new addition to the house ideal for entertaining on a grand scale, with soaring vaulted ceiling with oak timbers, space for a full-size snooker table, and an adjoining gym with doors opening to the garden. (Snooker table and gym equipment available by separate negotiation.)

    The kitchen has been attractively refitted with a range of Mark Wilkinson cabinetry, with granite worktops and leather detailing on the handles, a glass breakfast bar, tiled floor and a number of integrated Siemens appliances. The kitchen is open to the south-facing conservatory which has a stylish glass breakfast table; folding doors open to the sitting room, and there is a useful utility room with space for laundry appliances. Also lying off the kitchen, ideal for formal entertaining, is the dining room. A study and a cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    There are five spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom lying off the galleried first floor landing, including a generous principal suite with dressing room and en suite shower room, and a guest bedroom with en suite bathroom. Both the en suite shower room and family bathroom have electric underfloor heating and have been refitted with stylish suites, including a large shower cubicle/steam room in the shower room.

    Outside
    Redwood House sits centrally in its grounds, well-enclosed by laurel and beech hedging and mature trees, including some handsome western cedars, red oak and yew. A timber five-bar gate opens to a sweeping, bonded gravel driveway which leads to a parking area ahead of the house and to the detached double garage.
    The rear garden is south facing and mainly laid to lawn, with a paved terrace spanning the rear of the house and a fenced tennis court positioned centrally on the lawn.

    In all, about 0.99 of an acre.
