About this property

  • Burstall Grange is an impressive house, situated in an elevated
    and secluded position at the end of a private drive on the site of a former period country house. The new Burstall Grange was built in the late 1970's and substantially re-modelled and
    extended in 2012. The house is built from red brick under
    pitched tiled roofs and benefits from double glazing throughout.
    The house has many attractive features including well-proportioned rooms, polished floor boards, fireplaces and some
    fine panelled doors. The accommodation flows from the
    impressive central reception hall out to the main reception rooms in the house which benefit from the southerly views over the wonderful grounds. Beyond the main reception area of the house is a substantial games room wing with a snooker room creating a superb entertaining area. The modern kitchen has a
    comprehensive range of built in units, modern appliances and an island. This opens through to the dining room with a wood burner. The first floor is reached via a split staircase from the hall onto a part galleried landing. The majority of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and the bath and shower rooms are well fitted with white modern bathroom fittings. The master bedroom suite has a dressing room and access onto a balcony over which are stunning views.

    Burstall Grange is completely hidden from any road and set
    well back behind electric gates in a secluded setting. The drive
    winds its way down to a parking sweep to the front of the house and with a double garage (29” x 22”) with a store to one side. The established gardens surround the house and are a particularly impressive feature of the house. Several of the trees have preservation orders on them including the superb cedar to the east of the house, copper beech trees and two scots pines. The lawns slope away from a large raised terrace which fronts the southern and eastern elevations of the house and has a brick barbeque area ideal for al-fresco dining and large scale entertaining. Paths lead down to a sunken lawn garden and various other wooded garden areas and garden store.
