Property Overview

The property itself is a spacious, detached family home set over three floors, with capable and flexible internal accommodation, a large, south-facing, landscaped garden and the additional bonus of a delightful roof terrace (sun trap!) on the first floor. There's some work to be done to bring this home into the 21st century, but with that comes a truly exciting opportunity to create the home you've always wanted...while adding value too! I have visions of bi-folding doors, kitchen islands and modern master suites...Redwalls offers a multitude of options for moving forward and I can't wait to see where it's headed!!

To access the house, you can use the lower ground floor entrance on New Lane, or take the pathway up through the walled garden to enter on the ground floor. It's a lovely setting, with trees, plants and flowers bordering the lawn and a real peacefulness that's difficult to describe. Once inside, each room is bright and well-proportioned, with the accommodation arranged as follows:

Lower Ground Floor: Home Office/Reception Room, Utility Room/Storage, WC and internal access to Garage

Ground Floor: Breakfast Kitchen, Dining Room, Lounge, Family Room, Sitting Room/Bedroom Four

First Floor: Three Double Bedrooms, En-Suite Shower Room, Family Bathroom, South-Facing Roof Terrace

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
