Red Lion House is a magnificent Grade II listed family village home dating back to Elizabethan times with later Georgian extensions. The house has been extensively refurbished to the highest standard utilising the very best paints and designer wallpapers. The house has a contemporary feel at the same time, seamlessly incorporates and boasts much of the original character. Entering the sitting room, the attention to detail becomes immediately apparent with the interior styling complimenting the elegant features of high ceilings, large sash windows with shutters, exposed beams and restored parquet flooring. The Inglenook fireplace, housing a log burner and original bread oven, creates a charming focus to this room. Across the reception hall is the dining room with wood panelling on the walls, high ceilings and a beautifully restored oak floor, making it an ideal room for casual and formal dining. The kitchen features bespoke handmade units, wood worktops, an Aga and an enviable walk-in larder, as well as direct access to the garden. Beyond the entrance lobby, custom made mango wood and glass doors open into a light filled inner lobby where the colourful cloakroom and a hidden well sized utility room can be reached. This lobby also provides direct access to a substantial cellar that has the potential to be converted to a games room.
The bedrooms are set out over two floors, where the exquisite styling, against the backdrop of original features, continues. Three of the six bedrooms are on the first floor and are served by a large family bathroom with roll top bath and custom-made glass shower unit. The second floor, hosts three further bedrooms that are served by a separate bathroom with custom-made shower on the same floor. In what is currently used as the children’s bedroom, with its stunning vaulted ceiling, split level and charming nooks, there is an access into a loft for further storage.
