Former Mary Berry home in Buckinghamshire

The Red House

09.09.19

Former home to Mary Berry, the Red House was originally built in 1819 by Sir Philip Rose, the legal advisor to Benjamin Disraeli 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, as the village parsonage. It is steeped in history and represents an exquisite example of a traditional Georgian house with a unique blend of bespoke craftsmanship, elegance and functional design.

Benefiting from considerate renovations and additions throughout its history, the house is in beautiful condition and decorative order, seamlessly blending attractive period features with modern fittings to create a wonderful family home ideal for modern living. Beyond the entrance hall there is a charming staircase and doors leading off to the principal ground floor rooms. Three reception rooms to the front give flexibility; the impressive dining room approaches 30 ft in length and has a functioning fireplace, alcoves and an appealing bay window with views over the attractive gardens. The family room which was formerly the main entrance hall, now provides a cosy retreat adjoining the formal drawing room. The latter is a fabulous space; it is double aspect and deep sash windows fill the room with natural light. There is an abundance of character from the high ceilings, intricate cornicing, marble fireplace and original window shutters.

Located at the rear of the house is the open-plan kitchen and breakfast room. This is equipped with an Aga and features a range of high quality hand-painted units beneath stone surfaces.

Windows overlook the garden and French doors give access onto paved terraces. The kitchen is complemented by a utility room with a Belfast sink and a pantry with plenty of useful storage throughout.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms serviced by three bathrooms. The master bedroom has a feature fireplace, southerly views over the garden from a bay window and benefits from a dressing room opposite and a spacious bathroom. There is a further guest bedroom with dual aspect and an en suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms on this floor share a well-appointed family shower room. Stairs rise to the second floor with a further two bedrooms and valuable eaves storage.
