About this property

  • The Grange dates from the mid 1800's and has been in the same ownership for over 20 years. Occupying a peaceful elevated position, the building retains many original features, and faces almost due south, enjoying far reaching rural views over the Tone Vale.

    The house provides spacious and adaptable accommodation over two floors, with cellars below and a substantial attic. In total, the accommodation extends to about 5,473 sg ft.

    On the ground floor an entrance porch leads to a small reception hall, with study/office. This in turn leads to the main reception hall with cloakroom and doors opening to a fine selection of reception rooms including dining room, sitting room, and drawing room. There is a kitchen/breakfast room, with utility room off, a walk-in larder and butlers room, ideal as a further study or play room.

    An elegant staircase leads to a half landing from which one staircase leads to a WC. Beyond this, the staircase rises to a wonderful wide landing, with windows at either end, and doors opening to 5 double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a family bathroom. From the first floor landing there is a door, a back staircase, currently not in use.

    Outside, the gardens are a particular feature of the property, with extensive lawns, terraces and mature borders, with a fine selection of mature trees and shrubs. Within the grounds there is an ornamental pond, and a useful selection of outbuildings, including a stone garage and storage building, with potential for extension (subject to the necessary consents), and a further stone outbuilding at the back of the house, which is divided into three sheds providing storage for tools and logs. There is also a greenhouse attached to the east elevation of the building.

    The land extends to the north, east and south of the house and garden, extending to about 9.5 acres, with a separate vehicular access to the north. To the south of the house and garden there is a series of 16 ground mounted solar panels, producing a useful additional income through FIT payments of about £2,200 pa.
