Red House Farm offers both a principle period home of significant proportions, along with an eclectic selection of outbuildings with a field at the rear. The site is steeped in history with the oldest parts of the property dating back to the late 18th century when it had infamous connections to smugglers. The house was built in a cruciform layout in the mid 1800's. It has been added to, to create the impressive home that we have today. Set over four floors, the ground floor has a spacious living room with French doors opening onto a veranda and the secluded lawn to the east side. Off of the garden is a large kitchen garden and an enclosed, secluded play area.
The drawing room is a more cosy space which benefits from a fireplace and double aspect providing lots of light. Set off the main hall is a large family room with steps down to a spacious double roomed cellar. The family room opens into the kitchen with walk in pantry and dining area which has a utility room and WC off of it.
Moving up through the attractive landing to the first floor gives three well proportioned bedrooms along with a main bathroom which opens through to a shower room and then into a room currently used as a gym.
The top floor has two further double bedrooms and another large bathroom with walk in storage cupboard. Outside there is a large courtyard with parking for numerous cars. Over the years there has been a restaurant, cafe, furniture shop, delicatessen, workshops and studio in the outbuildings which have huge potential for a number of uses. Plans have been drawn up to convert the large barn and the outbuildings into holiday dwellings (S.T.P.). The field is suitable for equestrian use and the entire plot is around three acres with possibilities to increase this to five and a half.
A rarely available and exciting opportunity which should be visited to be fully appreciated.
