Impressive edge of town house with mature gardens
The Red House is a substantial and impressive Grade II Listed Georgian period house constructed from red brick under pitched tiled roofs. Internally the house has great character with high ceilings, well-proportioned rooms with open fireplaces and ornate surrounds. French windows give access to the gardens. The house is light and bright throughout with large sash windows. The accommodation flows remarkably well from the elegant central reception hall. The double height dining hall is a particular feature of the house, measuring 22'9" x 20'4" decorated with ornamental friezes and a galleried landing above. There is access to the cellar from the dining hall floor via a trap door. Deep sash windows open on to the garden. Two further reception rooms, one formerly a playroom, provide light, spacious accommodation on the ground floor, ideal for family living and entertaining. The drawing room benefits from orangery windows, perfect for al fresco dining. The kitchen has a central island unit with a granite worktop, there are base and wall units with wooden worktops, a gas fired Aga and an electric Neff oven and gas hob. The bay window is fitted with a charming seating area. The utility/boiler/boot room and study are all reached from the central reception room. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, all accessed from a large central galleried landing. The second floor accommodation consists of a kitchenette, three additional bedrooms, bathroom and a shower room.
The house sits well within the fully enclosed plot with lawned gardens and mature specimen trees including a wellingtonia, copper beach and a magnificent oriental plane tree. The house is approached via a graveled drive that fronts the house and provides ample parking. Trees and shrubs border the garden, providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion. Situated in the garden is a revolving summerhouse. Two garages lie opposite the front of the house. A studio/workshop lies along the south-west boundary of the property along with a spacious greenhouse.
