Full description



The Red House is believed to have been built circa 1930 and would appear to be of brick construction with rendered and colour washed and tile hung elevations all under a tiled roof. The present vendors have occupied the property for the last 30 years and is only being offered for sale due to the fact that they are down sizing. During that period they have carried out various extensions to the property and modernised it to a good standard.
The property occupies a prominent position at the top of Roundswell Hill adjoining open fields. Spectacular views are enjoyed down over open countryside towards Barnstaple, across the Estuary to Ashford and Heanton and down the Estuary to Braunton Burrows.
The Red House offers extremely spacious and versatile accommodation and has the benefit of oil fired central heating and sound proof insulated double glazing, windows and doors (except for the North side of the property).
An undoubted feature of the property is its level secluded half acre grounds with extensive lawned areas, mature trees, in and out drive way, ample parking and turning facilities and a screened 8 metre heated swimming pool.
