About this property

TENURE: Freehold

The Red House was originally built in 1819 by Sir Philip Rose, the legal advisor to Benjamin Disraeli 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, as the village parsonage. It is steeped in history and represents an exquisite example of a traditional Georgian house with a unique blend of bespoke craftsmanship, elegance and functional design. Benefiting from considerate renovations and additions throughout its history, the house is in beautiful condition and decorative order, seamlessly blending attractive period features with modern fittings to create a wonderful family home ideal for modern living. Beyond the entrance hall there is a charming staircase

and doors leading off to the principal ground floor rooms. Three reception rooms to the front give flexibility; the impressive dining room approaches 30 ft. in length and has a functioning fireplace,

alcoves and an appealing bay window with views over the attractive gardens. The family room which was formerly the main entrance hall, now provides a cosy retreat adjoining the formal drawing room. The latter is a fabulous space; it is double aspect

and deep sash windows fill the room with natural light. There is an abundance of character from the high ceilings, intricate cornicing, marble fireplace and original window shutters. Located at the rear of the house is the open-plan kitchen and

breakfast room. This is equipped with an Aga and features a range of high quality hand-painted units beneath stone surfaces. Windows overlook the garden and French doors give access onto

paved terraces. The kitchen is complemented by a utility room with a Belfast sink and a pantry with plenty of useful storage throughout.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms serviced by three bathrooms. The master bedroom has a feature fireplace, southerly views over the garden from a bay window and benefits from a dressing room opposite and a spacious bathroom. There is a further guest bedroom with dual aspect and an en suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms on this floor share a well-appointed family shower room. Stairs rise to the second

floor with a further two bedrooms and valuable eaves storage.

The property is centrally located within the desirable village of Penn, moments from the duck pond and village green. There are excellent facilities nearby with the village first and middle schools, a delicatessen, cafe and local convenience store.

Penn is approximately three miles from Beaconsfield, which has comprehensive shopping facilities and a mainline station with a direct link to London Marylebone (fastest train approximately 25 minutes). The area is renowned for its superb schooling both independent and state.

The house is set discreetly behind electric gates and positioned centrally on its plot. A gravel forecourt and turning circle make for an impressive entrance whilst providing ample parking for

a number of cars. The delightful gardens are well-tended and mainly laid to lawn with mature boundaries offering a high level of privacy. Flower borders, a feature pond and specimen trees give a pretty outlook with paved terraces surrounding the rear of the house, forming an ideal space for al fresco dining.

The Red House is supplemented by a detached coach house which has been constructed in a similar style to the main house and complements it perfectly. The ground floor comprises a garage, workshop, tack room and store which are all heated and, subject to the usual planning consents, could be converted to a gym or other accommodation. Stairs rise to a self-contained

annexe on the first floor, with a double bedroom, modern bathroom, fitted kitchen and sitting room. There is a brick-built outbuilding which is presently being utilised as a useful garden store and a second outbuilding next to the vegetable garden.
