About this property

  • Grange Farm is believed to date from 1855 with later alterations in the 20th century. The property is brick construction under a slate roof. The current owners have extended and maintained the property for the last 23 years with the property now offering both original features and modern facilities such as fireplaces, sash windows, high ceilings and a well fitted Aga kitchen. The versatile and spacious accommodation is laid out over two floors with the ground floor comprising a reception hall, which has a Victorian tiled floor and a set of plaster motifs depicting George & the Dragon. The hall leads through to two reception rooms, one of which is the delightful dining room with dual aspect, wooden floor and an open fireplace. The drawing room, on the opposite side of the hallway, is a beautifully well proportioned room with a triple aspect and benefits from a wood burning stove and French doors out on to the garden. All of the reception rooms afford stunning views over the gardens, pond and surrounding countryside. The Aga kitchen has a range of base and wall mounted units with granite worktops and a Bosch oven and hob, which is used during the summer months, when the Aga is turned off. The Aga kitchen has a snug/playroom off it. Beyond which lies a spacious home office with a 500mb fibre broadband connection. The spacious utility room has base and wall mounted units, Belfast sink and a wooden worktop. The first floor provides a large principal bedroom suite with a dressing room and en suite shower room. There are a further three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    The property is approached through a set of white five bar gates and across a drive, which gives access to a parking area at the side of the house. The established gardens wrap around the house and are a particular feature of the property placed centrally within them. The property sits in the middle of the plot surrounded by five fields, perfect for ponies and other livestock. The well maintained gardens are mainly laid to lawn and benefit from a variety of mature trees, a vegetable patch, water course and two ponds. The large timber framed barn is located west of the house and benefits from implemented planning permission to convert into a four bedroom property with no CIL. Planning Ref: B/16/00070/AGDW. None of the buildings are listed. A further modern barn is located along the northern boundary and has a useful lockable garage/ machinery store inside.

    Agents Note:
    There is a short 33m stretch of footpath just inside the western boundary of the property but distant from the main house

I found Grange Farm a charming farmhouse set in a wonderfully tranquil location on the edge of Washbrook. The timber framed barn is an exciting opportunity for an incoming purchaser to develop if they wish too.
