Arts and crafts home is full of character
T HIS elegantly proportioned Edwardian house in Carlton Road, Redhill, is a fine example of the arts and crafts movement. It is in very good condition and examples are rarely available on the market.
The house was designed by notable local architect Alfred Claude Burlingham, using natural materials and a simplicity and sense of proportion which made this movement a benchmark for design.
The current owners, while continually upgrading the house over their 29 years of living there, have taken care to retain its character.
Outside, the five/six-bedroom property has mellow brick elevations with clay tile hanging and stone quoins under a clay tiled roof, while the windows have leaded lights and the principle rooms feature wide bay windows.

Inside and spread over three floors, are spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows bringing in plenty of light, as well as many period features. Admire the picture rails, ornamental cornicing and oak panel doors in the main reception areas as well as the fireplaces. Walk up the particularly fine turning staircase with oak balustrade to the first floor where you'll reach a galleried landing.
Modern improvements include a well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a spacious utility area, yet it even harks back to days gone by with its butler's pantry and game larder.
A large en-suite bathroom to the main bedroom features a double-ended bath, his/hers hand basins and a separate large shower.
Reach the house via twin wrought iron gates to a gravelled in/out driveway, which provides plenty of parking and access to a brick built garage. Landscaped gardens of a third of an acre surround the property and feature extensive paved areas both to the side and back of the house. A raised lawn is edged by shrubs and trees.
