Situated in the heart of the sought after village of Shipbourne, this character property offers the incoming purchaser a superb opportunity to renovate and refurbish, subject to the necessary building consents. 2 Grange Cottages has lovely established gardens, with wonderful views over the village green to the front and countryside beyond, and is well located for local towns, road and rail links.

    The house is approached over a paved driveway, providing parking for several cars, and leading to the rear where the detached garage is located.

A path of meandering stepping stones leads through the wonderful part walled lawned garden, which is flanked on both sides by well stocked borders, including roses, spring bulbs, palm trees, buddleia, conifer and established evergreen shrubs and trees.
