The Property

Redcourt is a fine detached period property, dating from 1888 with charm and generously proportioned rooms. The house is locally listed and was once the home of renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author, Professor Stephen Hawking.

At the entrance to the property there is an attractive glazed porch, leading to an impressive reception hall. The front door is framed by a beautiful stained-glass copy of 'Flora', a Burne-Jones tapestry, which hangs in Exeter College, Oxford.

There is a well-proportioned sitting room, with a large bay window and a working fireplace. The formal dining room has large windows bringing in plenty of natural light. Additionally, there is a less formal family room as well.

The kitchen breakfast room, which opens onto the garden, is designed by Dwayne Edwards. It is well equipped with fitted units, granite worktops and a range cooker.

Further ground floor rooms include a study and an adjoining art studio overlooking the garden.

There are five double bedrooms to the first floor, including the master bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom leading back to the 'lantern' style landing. A cloak room completes the picture on this floor.

There are two further generous double bedrooms to the second floor, either side of a second large bathroom. There is a useful additional shower room on the ground floor.
