‘How often do you get the opportunity to acquire a piece of local history??’
“The Red House” is believed to be one of the oldest and finest examples of Georgian architecture in Potton. Dating back to around 1780 this substantial detached residence offers large, well proportioned accommodation over four floors (including the cellar), is just a ‘stone’s throw’ from the picturesque historic Market Square and the vast range of amenities it has to offer. The current sellers have undertaken a vast amount of sympathetic updating over recent years. Plumbing has been modernised with the addition of a ‘Vaillant’ condensing boiler, antique style radiators complete with traditional brass valves. Wiring is all up to date with new certification. There is a new re-fitted kitchen, and a new shower room in the process of being updated as we write. So with the ‘fundamentals’ having been addressed, this just leaves the new buyer to come in, finish the decorating details, and install new carpets as desired to really finish it off!! This glorious home still retains many of the original features you would expect, including impressive fireplaces, original parquet, and quarry tiling to some of the floors. There is also a wonderful opportunity to make use of an original ‘outhouse’ washroom which includes a fireplace to be used as required. If you’ve always dreamed of living in a true character home and to have the opportunity to take it into the next chapter of it’s history, then this is the home for you!!
