The Property

The Red House is an individual detached property of distinctive design built in 1984 having traditional red brickwork to elevations under a pitched tile roof with a projecting gable at the rear.

Recently Planning has been granted for adding a 5th Bedroom En Suite on the first floor above the existing Utility Room (Ap. No. 11/00232/HOUSE).

On the ground floor there is a spacious Reception Hall off which radiate all the principal rooms. The Drawing Room is particularly large with windows on 3 sides, an open fireplace and French doors at the rear opening into the gardens.

There are 4 double bedrooms on the first floor including a magnificent Master Bedroom which has a super large En Suite Bathroom. On the landing there is ladder access up to a huge Loft which has obvious potential for conversion into additional bedrooms (with facilities) as required subject to the relevant planning permission.

This property with its generous accommodation ideally leads itself for family occupation. There is scope and with planning just granted to extend if required and the extensive garden plot together with the views, the location and the setting all add considerably to its overall appeal.
