    About this property

    • The Grange dates from the Queen Anne period with 18th century and Regency additions and retains many of the original features of these ages including an elegant main staircase and sash windows. The property is Grade II listed.
      Accommodation is well presented with the emphasis on quality, while retaining a comfortable family feel and being ideally suited to every day living.
      There is a formal drawing room and an extremely charming sitting room, while there is also a good dining room, all of which have views over the gardens from their sash windows.
      The kitchen/breakfast room has been enlarged to provide great every day space, while linking through to a further part of the house which currently provides additional sitting rooms and bedrooms for older children. This part of the house is also ideally suited for guests, providing as it does, excellent bedrooms and bathrooms with independence provided by a separate front door.
      The property is approached through electric gates into a gravel turning circle to the front of the house. The gravel drive continues past the house to the rear where there is a range of outbuildings, and a further pair of wooden gates back on to the lane.
      To the south of the property there is a flagstone terrace providing excellent views over the gardens.
      The gardens slope away from the house down to the paddock and offer a lovely view to St. Mary's church and beyond.
      The outbuildings include a coach house with storage above and a double garage, either side of a block paved courtyard. There is also a cloak and shower room and a utility room in the garage block.
      There is also a timber shed and dog kennel.
