THE PROPERTY:
Redwall Farmhouse is a fine unlisted country residence understood to have formally been a pair of semi-detached cottages with origins understood to date back to the 1700s with Victorian additions. The property presents brick elevations set with predominantly replacement UPVC double glazed windows beneath twin pitched tiled roofs.

The very well proportioned character accommodation is arranged over two floors and now presents an opportunity for updating and improvement. Features indicative of the period include tall, coved ceilings, wide skirting boards and panelled internal doors. Sitting room with feature open fireplace with marble surround, over mantle and hearth, exposed floorboards and aspect to front. The study is fitted with book shelving to one wall, base level cupboards and parquet flooring. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with base and eye level cupboards and drawers including glaze fronted crockery cupboards, with serving hatch to dining room and enjoys a pleasant outlook across the rear garden. The garden room is currently used as a dining room and enjoys a pleasant rear aspect. Beyond the utility room is bedroom seven which could be used as a second study.

A main staircase and secondary staircase provide access to the first floor galleried landing with built-in linen storage cupboard and aspect to front with distant countryside views. The six bedrooms comprise four double rooms and two single rooms, the majority with wash hand basins and/or built-in wardrobes. Two separate family bathrooms, positioned side by side, are fitted with traditional white suites with enamelled baths.

GARDENS & GROUNDS:
A drive leads to parking in front of the house for approximately four vehicles. The established gardens run out to the rear and to the sides, laid to lawn, punctuated with trees (including apple, pear, cherry and walnut) and rockery.
