Nestled amidst mature and delightful gardens, this magnificent dwelling, constructed c. 1880, was a church of Ireland rectory until 1994 when it was then bought and restored by the current owners. The residence serves as a testament to an era that celebrated timeless craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.

A gravel driveway, flanked by tall beech trees, directs you to the main residence adorned in Virginia creeper that assumes a deep crimson hue come autumn.

As you step into the house, you will be greeted by a warm and inviting porch adorned with exquisite Victorian tiles. Crossing the threshold, you find yourself in an inviting entrance hall. Here, original solid wood flooring adds warmth and character to the space, grounding you in the history of this remarkable home. Tall ceilings with ornate cornicing soar overhead, a testament to the architectural grandeur of a bygone era.

This home unfolds with a series of well-proportioned reception rooms, each embodying the grandiosity of Victorian design. The drawing room offers a delightful retreat that exudes warmth and refinement. The room is bathed in natural light, thanks to a magnificent bay window boasting four large sash windows. From here, you will enjoy splendid views of the manicured gardens at the rear, while a single sash window offers a glimpse to the front of the house.
Next door the cosy library, while slightly more intimate in scale, still boasts a tall ceiling with delicate cornicing. Its intimate setting and well-crafted shelving provide the perfect backdrop for a world of literary adventures.
Across the hall the splendid dining room features opulent décor. It can accommodate large family gatherings and offer views of the rear gardens through three sash windows
dressed with elegant blinds.

The traditional kitchen masterfully combines period charm and functionality. It has a range of fitted units, together with a Rayburn cooker and an electric oven/hob. Adjacent to this is the living/dining room featuring white beamed ceilings and rugged, white-washed walls. An eye-catching exposed brick wall serves as a focal point, adding warmth to the space. Additionally, a pair of French doors lead to the garden outside, providing a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living.
The ground floor is complete with a bathroom, double bedroom and a multifunctional space that can be used either as a gym or a home office, catering to the demands of a modern lifestyle. A set of back stairs leads up to a loft housing two double bedrooms and additional flexible spaces that can be adapted to suit the evolving needs of the homeowners.

Ascending the main staircase in the front hall, you are greeted with beautiful stained-glass windows on the return landing. Upon reaching the first floor, you enter the master bedroom, a sanctuary of luxury and comfort. The bedroom features a spacious ensuite bathroom complete with a shower, cast iron radiator, hand basin and WC. You will also find a cosy reading room, adorned with shelves and intricate wall sconces that provide soft, warm lighting, perfect for hours of reading and relaxation.

On the same level, there are two additional double ensuite bedrooms, each one thoughtfully designed to accommodate a growing family or welcome guests in comfort. The family bathroom is equipped with a shower, hand basin and WC. The walls are adorned with wainscoting, which adds a classic and sophisticated touch to the space.

Continuing to the upper landing on the second floor, you are once again greeted by beautiful stained-glass windows. On this floor is another spacious double bedroom.

A tree-lined gravel driveway guides you to the house, creating a serene and picturesque entrance. As you arrive, a gravel turning circle invites you to pause and take in the beauty of your surroundings. Ample parking ensures convenience for residents and guests alike.
The exterior of the home features Virginia creeper, which adorns the walls and adds a touch of romantic charm.

Rolling manicured lawns stretch out, inviting you to explore and enjoy the open space. While towering mature trees at the garden’s edge offer both natural beauty and an embrace of privacy.

At the rear of the house, a charming courtyard beckons, revealing a treasure trove of outbuildings and an overhead loft that promise boundless possibilities. A brick archway, graced by a cast iron gate, guides you through this private oasis. An additional outbuilding with a loft above offers versatile potential.
Border shrubs add texture and colour to the grounds. Wandering through the garden is a delightful experience, with various gravel pathways meandering through lush foliage. As you reach the garden’s farthest point there is a stone building, brimming with possibilities.

Frewin House not only provides an exquisite dwelling of Victorian grandeur but also benefits from a truly enviable location, seamlessly combining tranquillity with the conveniences of being situated less than a kilometre from Ramleton town centre. This prime position ensures that practical necessities are just a short stroll away.
