A beautiful listed stone village farmhouse, The Grange is positioned at the end of a no through Lane, with cart horse garaging, outbuildings and delightful gardens and adjoining Paddocks.

About this property

  • Deceptively spacious, the detached house occupies a discreet position at the end of a lane with views to fields, despite being in the core of this popular Rutland village, with no passing traffic.  It is surrounded by its extensive gardens, parking and paddocks, which extend to about 1.12 acres.

    The period stone appearance belies the fabulously modern and well-appointed interior.

    Extensively renovated and extended in 2012, the house was electrically rewired, plumbed and refurbished throughout.  Under-floor heating was installed through the ground floor, whilst the windows were all replaced with double glazed timber units.  The kitchen was moved to the core of the house, and a fabulous suite fitted, with impressive bath and wet room suites installed to the principal bedrooms. 

    The result is a period home with a fabulous visual finish and a thoroughly modern feel.  Nonetheless, a wealth of period features also remain, with stone fireplaces, exposed timber beams and stonework, among other features.

    The attractive home is positioned within gardens and adjoining paddocks that extend to 1.12 acres, or thereabouts, in total. 

    Surrounded by attractive Rutland countryside, there are also fabulous walks from the village.  

    Accommodation
    Arranged over two floors, the accommodation extends to almost 4000 sq ft and has a traditional layout well suited to family life. The property is entered onto an internal hall with doors leading to the beamed modern kitchen with vast inglenook fireplace, an adjoining breakfast room, utility, office and service rooms on one side, with the formal reception spaces on the other. This includes a dining room, sitting room with wood-burning stove and a snug.

    On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with dressing room and en suite bath/shower room, an additional en suite guest bedroom.  Three further double bedrooms are served by a full suite contemporary family wet room.

    Of the accommodation, the kitchen is a particular highlight having an informal space for family meals, plus room for seating around the original fireplace which is now fitted with a complementary wood-burning stove.

    Outside
    Approached to an extensive gravel turning sweep and double car port, framed by single-storey outbuildings, which offer fabulous storage and potential ancillary uses (subject to all consents), the gardens and land lie to the south of the house.

    Stone and gravel terraces adjoin the house, with a south facing walled garden and kitchen garden.  Adjoining paddocks run down to the river and the deciduous tree lined southern boundary. The property extends to about 1.12 acres in total.

I absolutely love the feel and finish of this beautifully presented period farmhouse. Positioned within south facing gardens and adjoining paddocks, although in the core of the village the feel and the outlook feels distinctly rural. The single storey outbuilding range seems, to me, to offer ancillary potential (subject to all necessary consents). Couple this with being able to walk to either of the village public houses, or to the multitude of fabulous rural walks, and this is a stand out home to my mind.
