Redmans has been the subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment, remodelling and extension with an exacting level of attention to detail having been applied to every aspect of the project and an emphasis focused on creating an exceptional family home with accommodation designed to compliment a modern lifestyle. The result is a triumph, a distinctive property offering an exquisitely detailed interior with a high end finish throughout including a bespoke lighting scheme and Nobilia German kitchen.

The accommodation radiates from a beautiful reception hall and is concentrated to the rear of the house overlooking the south facing garden. This includes an exceptionally generous, open plan kitchen/dining/living space with an impressive kitchen installation featuring integrated appliances and quartz worksurfaces. Glazed double doors unite the space with the adjacent sitting room and there is a study and second family room, (both opening to the west facing courtyard garden) and a studio thought suitable for a variety of uses. There is also a utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, the principal suite incorporating a dressing room and a luxuriously appointed en-suite shower room, a theme which continues throughout the family bath and shower rooms (all with underfloor heating), also the en-suite shower room serving the second bedroom. There are three further bedrooms.

The house occupies a generous plot with ample parking on the driveway to the front. To the rear the 95ft south facing garden has been recently refenced and benefits from an expansive, newly laid terrace providing the perfect area for alfresco dining and entertaining with the rest of the garden being newly laid extensively to lawn and incorporating a large garden cabin/office and greenhouse. In addition there is a west facing walled courtyard garden.
