    About this property

    • ABOUT THE GRANGE
      The Grange is a versatile equestrian property. It comprises a centrally positioned, detached six bedroom house, with an attractive lime tree lined approach. A separate access leads to an outdoor arena, American barn with seven loose box stables, hay, wash and tack facilities and outbuildings. All this is conveniently laid out within 7.95 acres of ringfenced, largely post and rail fenced paddocks and land.

      The well-presented house has a thoroughly modern feel, with large windows allowing attractive views over the property, and a flexible layout. Originally constructed in the 1960s, the property has been reconfigured and modernised in recent years. It was electrically rewired in 2018, double glazed in 2015 and cavity wall insulated in 2010.

      The ground floor's largely wood floor configuration has a lovely flow, with three generously proportioned reception rooms. The triple aspect drawing room has a wide inglenook housing a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden, whilst the dining room and under-floor heated living room adjoin one another, with a further set of French doors to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive suite, with a central island and incorporates built-in appliances with space for an American fridge/freezer. The kitchen is open to an adjacent breakfast room which offers ample space for a large table for informal dining. A study, cloakroom and utility complete the ground floor.

      At first floor level, the generous triple-aspect principal bedroom has a large south facing picture window with views over the garden, with built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. The five further bedrooms are all doubles and are served by a well-appointed family bathroom with a P-shaped bath and shower above.

      OUTSIDE
      Approached along a lime tree lined driveway, the drive passes the house leading to the American Barn and the arena. With a separate access the American Barn is a fabulous building, fitted with seven large loose box stables, wash and tack facilities and an adjoining hay store, around a large central area. To the west of the barn, an oversized (45 m x 25 m) Charles Britton silica and rubber based outdoor riding arena is ideal for schooling or lessons with paddocks for grazing. To the left of the house there are further outbuildings which formally supported a cattery and kennel business. The house, buildings and arena are positioned within a total of 7.95 acres of ringfenced land. The house has about an acre of garden to its south side, whilst the land is divided into three largely post and rail fenced paddocks of varying sizes, the largest being about two acres.

    This is such a versatile property. An equestrian property from which a cattery and kennel business has previously been run, the modern six bedroom house lies within 8 acres of land. It is a fabulous opportunity for a combined residential and business base. It is also an accessible location for commuters to Peterborough, Cambridge and London, as well as for Oundle and Kimbolton school families. Peterborough's, Bedford's and Uppingham's schools are also eminently achievable, a little further afield.
