Red Cedar is a recently rebuilt and extended Colt house, thoughtfully designed to provide 2,864 sq ft of versatile single storey accommodation of good proportions and subject to immaculate presentation throughout. Thanks to their timber construction, Colt houses are environmentally sound and energy efficient, naturally cool in summer and warm in winter. They are also renowned for their light and space and Red Cedar is no exception benefiting from capacious windows and French doors taking advantage of high levels of natural light and garden views.
Internally, the spacious accommodation is largely open-plan and designed in a chic contemporary style. The living space could be utilized in a number of different ways to suit individual family needs and provides opportunities to provide further bedrooms, (especially within the snug area) or extension, subject to any necessary planning.
Of particular note is the open plan living area which has a double sided fireplace, a stylish focal point which maintains light and the visual flow between rooms. The adjacent kitchen is extremely well appointed and the bright and airy garden room which flanks the entire rear of the property adds substantial extra adaptable space and is ideal for large family gatherings and outside-in entertaining. The interior is decorated in tasteful neutral tones complemented by ceramic tiled flooring and neutral carpets.

Red Cedar was built on the existing mature gardens and grounds of the former building and retains a host of mature trees which draws local wildlife to the garden. The gardens are encompassed by established hedging and trees, creating good levels of privacy at the rear. The grounds are have been thoughtfully landscaped to include sweeping lawns and beds and borders filled with a host of flowering shrubs and herbaceous planting, creating a lovely setting for the house.
At the front, the house is approached through a cast iron electric gate to a tarmac drive with adjacent parking area. Stone paving from here wraps around the entire property culminating in a south facing terrace at the rear. Tucked away, this provides a sheltered and secluded spot for summer parties, entertaining and sun-bathing. Nearby is a stone water feature which is a delightful focal point. In addition to the garage, there is a timber summer house and an open bay log store. The gardens and grounds amount to 0.7 acres in all.
