A stunning country house originally built as a hunting lodge to the Althorp Estate offering extensive living accommodation and indoor pool complex set in a total plot of around 1.5 acres with countryside views. The Property The Red House is an imposing Edwardian country house situated to the edge of the village occupying an elevated position enjoying views over adjoining farmland. Originally built as a hunting lodge to the Althorp Estate, the property has been subject to an extensive high quality refurbishment with the property offering an effective synergy of the original period charm of the main house and modern day stylish and contemporary living accommodation which includes an indoor swimming pool and leisure complex. The current owners, during their time at the property, have further improved the Red House to exacting standards and specifications. An inspection is highly advised in order to appreciate fully the extent and high standard of accommodation on offer. On the ground floor a spacious hallway with oak flooring and impressive staircase rising to a galleried first floor landing provides access to the living room, study, dining room and conservatory. A further door provides access to a bespoke fitted kitchen/living area with adjacent family room/snug. Beyond the kitchen/family living area is an indoor swimming pool complex together with impressive TV/games room, sauna and hobby room. To the first floor a spacious landing gives access to the bedroom accommodation which is all colour themed and includes a substantial principal bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom with a 'jacuzzi' bath and balcony. There are also two further en suite bath/shower rooms and separate family bathroom. Outside The property is approached through electric gates with a security entrance system which in turn provides access to a gravelled driveway providing ample off-road parking for a number of vehicles together with a triple double-bay garage with storage area above. The gardens and grounds extend to all aspects of the house and principally comprise extensive lawned area with mature trees, flowers and shrubs.
