About this property

  • Upper Grange Farm is a handsome farmhouse, with the original part dating back to the 1700's and extended in the 1900's. The current owners have updated the house including double glazing all windows and doors, internally insulating the front façade whilst externally insulating the remaining three sides with Eco Rend breathable render, and putting in a new ground source heat pump heating and hot water system. There is still plenty of scope for the next owner to put their own stamp on it.

    The house offers great family living with high ceilings and well proportioned reception rooms, including the drawing room which has a multifuel burning stove, a bay window and a door leading to the side gardens. The dining room also has a bay window and a fireplace. The entrance hall is beautifully decorated with Minton tiles and leads to the living kitchen, which has farmhouse style units, an integrated dishwasher, a central island, a stable door leading out to the garden, and a fabulous larder.

    The spacious utility room provides further units and storage, along with space for white goods and access to the storm porch/boot room which is a great space for coats, shoes or dogs. There is a door leading outside to the courtyard and outbuildings. On the ground floor is a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and separate shower and a separate play room with two doors leading out to the gardens. These add to a potential extension, subject to the necessary planning permission.

    The traditional staircase, rises to the first floor landing where there is the principal bedroom, with an enclosed toilet and sink, a free standing bath within the room, views over the garden and fitted mirrored wardrobes. Bedroom two, is a spacious room which has a door ready for a balcony which will over look the gardens and pond. There has been external plumbing installed ready for an ensuite.

    Bedroom three is a double, with a vaulted ceiling with roof lights and a side window, Bedroom four also a double with built in wardrobes and Bedroom five is a double with views over the gardens. There is a separate family bathroom which is fitted with a new hot water system, a further separate WC with sink and an additional sink area.

    OUTBUILDINGS

    There are a good range of outbuildings including a large steel portal framed shed, which originally housed the dairy cattle. There are five separate bays with roof lighting, stalls on either side and a mezzanine floor. This building would be ideal for American barn stabling or even an indoor school, with a large yard area to the back and side. It also has plenty of opportunity to house classic cars, as there is a hydraulic ramp, or as furniture storage. There are endless opportunities.

    A large Dutch barn, has a separate two up two down building next door with lighting and electricity.

    There is a separate barn/workshop which is insulated and has electricity and a space heater. This also has development potential.

    There is a traditional brick outbuilding (The Games Room/storage), which has potential to be converted into a separate dwelling as it has its own fenced garden and a kitchenette. This building is fully insulated, with electricity and heating connected and was the original milking parlour.
    Closer to the house is a separate one bedroom annexe, which has a kitchenette, a bedroom/living room and a separate shower room. It also has internet access which needs re-connecting. The annexe overlooks the pond.
    The traditional forge which has the original bellows restored behind glass also overlooks the pond and opens out onto a decked seating area and is perfect for indoor BBQ as it has a chimmney.

    The swimming pool is set within a brick outbuilding with a plant room and a separate changing room with shower and WC. This building could potentially serve as further accommodation, should someone wish to fill in the swimming pool and apply for planning permission.

    THE COTTAGE ANNEXE

    Situated not far from the main house, the annexe enjoys an outlook over one of the ponds.

    There is a living room/bedroom with double doors leading outside, a kitchenette with USB sockets and a separate shower room.

    The annexe has been previously accommodated by a couple via the Homes for Ukrainian scheme and would make a suitable holiday let/Air B & B.

    LAND & GARDENS

    The gardens are mostly laid to lawn and wrap around the house, offering a fantastic space large enough for a children's play area. There is a fenced, rabbit proof vegetable patch with electricity and water and two summer houses where you can enjoy views to The Wrekin and enjoy the pond.

    The driveway provides access to a parking area at the front of the house, with a separate gate into the yard where there is plenty of further parking, access to the outbuildings and heated kennel. There is a further separate gated entrance into the Yard and outbuildings.

    Originally run as a dairy farm, the land at Upper Grange Farm has not been grazed by livestock for over 20 years. The current owners have allowed the land to return to its natural habitat, whilst keeping it mown. Nature corridors have been added on all sides of the fields with specimen trees including Alder, Hazelnut, Crab Apple, Cherry, Poplar and Oak.

    A tree corridor has also been planted which offers plenty of opportunity to see wildlife along with a natural pond which has an island where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful private surroundings.

    The land is totally private, with no rights of way across meaning you are in your own idyll. There are access points from the land onto the lane, which runs past the house and also a separate access into the outbuildings.

    The land is suitable for livestock or as a potential business for glamping pods, wedding venue or further development, subject to the necessary planning permission.
