Brightly Colored Period Home in U.K. Village of Therfield Hits the Market

A period home loaded with character and history and painted candy apple red is on the market in the U.K. village of Therfield, in Hertfordshire, asking £1.85 million (US$2.4 million).

The home, which dates to the 16th century, is new to the market, having just launched, according to a representative from listing brokerage Savills.

The bold color scheme of the exterior extends into the interior of the home, where more reds, greens and yellows feature as prominently as the home’s original features, which include wooden beams and hardwood floors.

The six-bedroom property is “one of the most interesting homes I have seen for a long time,” listing agent Justin Godfrey said in a statement. It has “lots of charm and character with some fabulous entertaining spaces.”

There is a sizable drawing room with a wood-burning fireplace, a paneled dining room, a study, a conservatory lined with stained glass windows and a bespoke kitchen complete with an Aga range—a mainstay of the upscale country kitchen.

The home’s primary bedroom suite is reached by its own staircase and is accompanied by a dressing room and a bathroom that has a statement painted bathtub, though the tub may not be included in the sale of the home, according to the listing.

Outside, the gardens, which extend to just over an acre, are to “die for,” according to Mr. Godfrey.

There are two ponds, views across the countryside, a workshop and a wood cabin currently utilized as an art studio, the listing said.

Village homes in the U.K. have seen a surge in popularity as increasing numbers of buyers look to relocate to more rural spots, seeking more space for their money and easier access to the outdoors amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Mansion Global couldn’t determine who is selling the home or when they acquired it.
