    About this property

    • The Grange, also known as The Grange Manor House, at Lolworth is a substantial and exceptional detached Victorian property with 9985 sq ft of accommodation, built in the latter part of the 19th century of yellow brick elevations beneath a patterned tiled roof.

      The property is Grade II Listed and situated virtually central to its plot and surrounded by beautiful gardens containing a wide range of specimen trees.

      Central to the house is the impressive double height vaulted reception hall with a beautiful tessellated floor laid by Maw & Co, detailed ceiling and cornicing, and a fine staircase rising to a galleried landing. To the south is an elegant drawing room with oak herringbone laid floors and a substantial Italian marble fireplace with two pairs of French doors that lead to a loggia and enjoys views to the gardens. Adjacent to this room is the music room with intricate ceiling cornicing and detailing with deep square bay sash windows and an ornate marble fireplace.

      There is a refitted kitchen/breakfast room with walnut fronted cabinets and Corian work surfaces with a cream 4 oven Aga with breakfast room beyond.

      Overlooking the rear gardens is a beautifully proportioned dining room with a fireplace and lime washed floor boards. Facing the east gardens is a superb gym with facilities including both steam and infrared saunas and a shower room. The accommodation has high ceilings throughout and is shown in greater detail in the attached floor plans. It is unusual to find a period house with so many original features retained yet with modern facilities including an integral music system on the ground floor, a bespoke designed kitchen and modern fitted bathrooms.

      The property is approached by a drive with a right of way granted to two neighbouring properties and Grange Farm. The driveway passes through brick pillars with white panelled gates which open to a large gravelled drive to the front lawn and the house. There are many mature trees including Cedar of Lebanon, Redwood, Copper Beech, Judas Trees, many varieties of Maple and a row of pollarded Lime Trees.

      The gardens are beautifully maintained by the current owners. There is a 40' x 20' heated swimming pool within a private garden surrounded by tall yew hedges with a summer house including kitchen and also a pool house. There is a fruit orchard and a hard tennis court. To the side is garaging for three cars including a modern triple garage (10.6m x 6.7m), extensive gravelled parking area and a large greenhouse.
