THE PROPERTY

When picturing a Georgian home, the image that comes to mind is one of a charming stone exterior with characteristic sash windows, behind which are spacious, high-ceilinged rooms full of elegant features and family comforts. Redlands Farm not only matches this description but exceeds expectations by blending all of the best features of a Georgian property, including Flagstone floors and several period fireplaces, with the many benefits of modern life, creating a home which is characterful, comfortable and convenient. The property is believed to date back to the 1800s and has benefitted from a programme of renovation under the current ownership, yet there remains scope for further improvement to the property if desired. Despite a convenient location at the heart of the village and within easy reach of amenities, the property is set in a generous, secluded plot amounting to 0.6 of an acre and has the enormous benefit of a large garage/workshop.

Entering the property through the front door, the obvious practicality and characterful charm is immediately apparent. The heart of the home can be found to the right of the inner hall where a sociable kitchen/breakfast room, complete with inglenook, oil-fired Aga and breakfast bar, offers a sense of togetherness whilst retaining clear areas for cooking and relaxing. Three delightful reception rooms can be found nearby, including an authentically lavish formal dining room, a spacious drawing room and an adjoining sitting room, with an additional living space provided by the Orangery, which is a stunning, expansive structure believed to be as much as a century old and to have originated from Parnham House in Beaminster.

The first floor is also perfectly arranged to accommodate the needs of a variety of a purchasers, including those with growing or indeed grown-up families and those expecting regular guests. The stairs rise to a wide central landing from which 5 bedrooms can all be accessed, yet with a degree of separation so that bedrooms 1 and 5 are set slightly apart from the others. Bedroom 1 is of particular note, with ample built-in storage and an ensuite shower room. A family bathroom can be found on the other side of the landing, serving the three further bedrooms. The domestic side of life is well catered for with several spacious store/utility rooms which can be accessed from the kitchen, between them ensuring that the needs of a busy modern family can effortlessly be met without impacting on the comfort and style found throughout the rest of this home.

OUTSIDE

Redlands Farm enjoys large, south-facing gardens and grounds, much of which is arranged to the front and side of the house. Immediately abutting the Orangery is a paved sun terrace, onto which a door from the kitchen leads, enabling a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle when weather allows. This lies open to a smooth, level lawn providing an excellent excuse for barbecues and outdoor entertaining.

A considerable asset to the property is the substantial, detached workshop/garage which occupies the southernmost corner of the garden and benefits from independent vehicular access. Comprising a large, open-plan, double height workshop with separate store and mezzanine office, this is a perfect place for classic vehicle enthusiasts, keen hobbyists or craftspeople to practise their art free from distractions. The gated driveway to the house offers ample parking and turning for several vehicles.
