An outstanding Grade II listed double fronted period town house with substantial living accommodation, private garden and in a very convenient central town location. Ideal for working from home.

A very substantial Grade II listed, double fronted period residence occupying a very central position within the heart of this attractive Port and Market Town. In the past the property has traded as an antique shop, creating show rooms throughout the ground floor, was the home of a School of Music and earlier still ran as Tea Rooms.

Dating from 1692, during the reign of William and Mary, the front was remodelled late in the 19th Century and clad with mathematical tiles and the roof covered with large box style clay tiles. The front elevation roofline is broken by a continuous run of flat topped dormers also faced with mathematical tiles and having the roof tiles swept down over them.

Internally there are many of the original features, together with 18th Century and 19th Century alterations including tall panelled dados, ovolo-moulded wall panelling, leaded light panels with stained glass, moulded ceiling cornices, panelled doors, sash window with bench seats, wooden dog leg staircase and attractive cast iron Victorian and Art Nouveau fireplaces with cast iron grates.

Bideford is one of Devon's most important and visually attractive historic towns, originally an ancient settlement which grew around a famous bridge, its particular period of prosperity occurred from the Elizabethan era onwards and today the town retains the character and atmosphere of a once famous and important seaport, presenting a wealth of individual buildings dating from the 16th and 19th Centuries. There is no doubt that 'The Red House' is one of these very special buildings and as such is recognised as being of architectural and historic interest.
