About this property

  • Merrow Grange is a remarkable country house dating from 1868 having been originally built for the Pengilly family. The property was later extended and remodelled in the early 20th century by Francis Baring-Gould and was once used as a hotel, a convent and a secondary school until it was refurbished and converted to luxury apartments.

    The apartment reflects the character of the main house with a host of period features including very high ceilings and vast sash windows (with original shutters), giving an abundance of natural light and offering delightful views over the landscaped and manicured gardens.

    The property is accessed via a private entrance with original wood panelling and ornate glass work on and above the interior doorways. Measuring at 26 ft, the spacious sitting room is breath taking with its impressive proportions and beautiful original ceiling mural, large windows and open fireplace providing an ample space for entertaining. The renovated kitchen has been fitted with modern cabinetry and built-in appliances including a wine fridge.

    The apartment provides two generously proportioned bedrooms and two renovated bathrooms. The principal bedroom is an excellent size with bay windows, built-in wardrobes and a large en suite shower room. Whilst the second bedroom features a large bay window and fitted wardrobes.

    Approached via electric wrought iron gates and a sweeping driveway, the property is surrounded by the beautiful and extensive landscaped communal gardens and grounds of almost three acres. The grounds offer scenic walks, entertaining spaces and areas of interest. There is a raised communal terrace with stone balustrading, overlooking a Grade II listed grotto of pulhamite stone.

    There is allocated parking just outside the apartment and ample guest parking as well as a dedicated garage and a separate basement providing ample room for storage.

    South Hall would be well suited as either a main residence or a second home providing the ideal country retreat.
