About this property

  • A particularly handsome 18th century brick, stone and flint house, with spacious accommodation over three floors.

    The reception hall, offering access to the main reception rooms, has an original slate tiled floor and French doors on to a gravelled rear courtyard. An inner hall offers access to the large cellars, which also have an external access point from the parking area. The elegant drawing room has a fireplace with wood-burning stove, sash windows, original shutters and a pretty part-glazed door onto the front garden. An adjacent, dual-aspect sitting room also has a fireplace with a wood-burning stove and large windows overlooking the lawns. The well proportioned dining room has a vaulted ceiling, parquet floor, wood panelling and fireplace with wood burner. The kitchen has a range of fitted cupboards, integrated appliances and quartz worktops. It offers access through to the utility room/laundry with quarry tiled floor. This room has a staircase up to the annex and also a back door out on to a gravel path, taking you through to the parking area and also the garden.

    On the first floor is the principal bedroom suite, which has both a dressing room and an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and family shower room on this floor. On the top floor are two additional bedrooms.
    The aforementioned annex has a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

    The property enjoys a peaceful and private setting, surrounded by its own gardens on three sides. On the remaining side of the property is a gravel parking area. The gardens are predominantly walled, providing surroundings that are delightfully sheltered. To the front is a level lawn, edged with herbaceous borders and mature trees and shrubs. From the terrace lead wide gravel steps up on to the spacious walled rear garden, which is laid mainly to lawn with an orchard at one end and sits in an elevated position up behind the house.

    The property has three garages, accessed from the lane, two stables and a wood store.

I love the long history and varied architecture at The Grange, and the setting in the village is lovely.
