Set in a secluded and quiet no-through lane on the edge of fields in the popular village of Redhill and benefitting from panoramic Wrington Vale views is Under Copse Cottage, an evocative semi-detached period cottage of character with sizeable living space. Parts of Under Copse Cottage date from the 1600s but the property has been renovated and extended over the years to a very high standard creating modern, light and airy living accommodation, whilst retaining the innate character of the building. The property has an intriguing past; a previous owner found a canon ball dating from the Monmouth Rebellion and the oak lintel above the fireplace is understood to be from St Paul's Cathedral.
On the ground floor a good-sized entrance porch has an arched door opening into a large dining room with herring bone wood flooring. There is a beautifully appointed light and bright kitchen with vaulted ceiling and granite work surfaces and a large living room with feature fireplace and double doors out to the gardens. To the rear of the ground floor is a separate study with original flagstone flooring that leads to a beautifully appointed shower room. On the first floor there is a large galleried landing/dressing area, two generous double bedrooms with exceptional far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside, a beautifully appointed main bathroom, with a gorgeous claw foot bath, and a separate WC. From the landing there is a further staircase that leads up to a mezzanine level third bedroom with exposed beams, a great extra space with scope for a variety of uses.
The gardens are particularly impressive, laid out as they are in a cottage style with box hedging, a good sized lawned area, gravel paths, also a vegetable patch and greenhouse to the side of the house. There is off-street parking for two vehicles in front of a good-sized garage with attached studio/office, again with scope for a variety of uses.
The incredible south west facing views that the cottage enjoys are truly breath-taking and in our opinion would be hard to better, whilst the setting itself it rural, yet not isolated, perfect for lovers of walking with miles of amazing countryside footpaths and bridleways to enjoy. Redhill is also highly convenient for amenities and schools, with Wrington just down the road and great transport routes to both Bristol and Bath and further afield, so no problems with the commute.
