A drawing room with room for a large fir tree comes into its own at Christmas
A large fir tree brings life into the home at Christmas. Choosing a tree, transporting it home and placing it in the house is the official point that signifies Christmas is really beginning.
Even though the tree is only in the house for a few weeks per year, it is enough to warrant considering the size of a drawing room while house hunting. Christmas is the perfect time to show off your house, not least because there is a steady stream of guests to appreciate it; the last thing you want is a squashed-looking fir, or worse, a drawing room with nowhere good to put it.
If you buy any one of the properties below, you’ll have none of those worries as they all have a perfect place to put your tree at Christmas.
Marsett House is in an enviable position between Southwell and Oxton village set within impressive south facing formal gardens. It lies within easy reach of Nottingham and offers excellent road links, including the M1.
The property boasts six reception rooms, so there is a lot of scope to choose the perfect spot for a tree and decorate the room accordingly. A Christmas tree would fit into the drawing room well and blend with the floral wallpaper and green colour scheme.
Bardeny Hall retains its status as a statement home. It is an important residence intrinsic to the history of Barton, a dignified, sophisticated dwelling of evident charm and elegance. Set within beautifully landscaped grounds, this imposing Grade II listed Queen Anne residence offers four bedroom accommodation of opulent grandeur and elegance.
The outstanding drawing room is suited to formal celebrations, and has plenty of space for a large Christmas tree. The room features sash windows, a concealed door, polished timber flooring and large Adam style fireplace surround with floral plaques, marble hearth and inset cast iron hearth.
A truly impressive barn conversion with adjoining two bedroom cottage set on approximately 10 acres of formal gardens and paddocks with four stallion boxes, barn and outbuildings. The properties, which could easily be converted to one residence, provide versatile accommodation, all set behind a gated security entrance.
The amazing open fire in the drawing room would be brilliant to sit around on Christmas Day, so it makes sense to place the tree nearby to give the room a true festive feel.
For those looking for urban living, this property is in the heart of Edgebaston. The house has been extended, redeveloped and updated amalgamating state of the art technology with elegant period features to emanate immense charm and desirable practicality.
The house sits behind an electric gate, but that doesn’t mean owners shouldn’t show off their large Christmas tree in the bay window of the drawing room. By moving the love seat, the tree would become a fantastic focus point of the room.
An expansive country residence with extensive internal accommodation constructed 22 years ago to exacting standards and with a wealth of luxurious features throughout. It is located in a highly regarded location close to village amenities in Whalley with its historic buildings, characterful shops, cafes and restaurants.
Christmas tree placement requires thought in this property, as the garden room and drawing room would both be suitable. If a miracle occurs and there is snow underfoot on Christmas Day, it would be fantastic to sit beside the tree and look out of the double glass doors of the garden room onto the well-tended gardens.
