About this property

  • Old Grove House is a beautiful Grade II* listed house with delightful brick and flint elevations under a clay tiled roof. On the market for the first time in over 30 years, it is believed to date back to 17th century and retains many period features including exposed timberwork and original fireplaces.

    It is in need of some updating but provides wonderful family accommodation with great character and set within a pretty walled garden. Throughout the property there is a wealth of exposed wall and ceiling timbers and original brick fireplaces.

    The ground floor has well-proportioned reception rooms all with exposed timbers and beautiful old fireplaces. Doors open from the sitting room and family room to the garden terraces providing the perfect place to sit and enjoy the privacy of the south facing walled garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is a spacious room with pantry, store cupboard and door to the side garden. To the first floor there are five double bedrooms, three with en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom and separate WC. There is an extensive attic space with lots of potential to convert to further accommodation (subject to the usual planning and listed building consents).

    The electric wrought iron gates open from the road to a shared driveway leading to two garages with up and over doors. Gates open to a large private parking area to the side of the property. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn with mature borders planted with a variety of perennial plants. Large conifers planted along the brick and flint boundary wall provide privacy and a good backdrop to the pretty front elevation where a wisteria climbs against the beautiful brick and flint. The property sits centrally within the plot and has terraces to enjoy al fresco dining in this pretty garden.
