    About this property

    • West Vale is located within the small community of homes on the prestigious Ely Grange Estate and is just a short distance from the heart of the popular village of Frant with its active village community and excellent local amenities.

      This property is a semi-detached five bedroom house thought to have been built around 1910 as a home for farm workers of the Ely Grange Estate.

      West Vale now offers well-proportioned accommodation creating a stylish family home with many period features including cast iron fireplaces, quarry tiled floor to the entrance porch, picture rails and high ceilings. Combining contemporary fixtures and fittings, newly refreshed décor, new double glazed windows in many rooms and modern bathroom suites, West Vale offers well-presented accommodation to suit the needs of a modern family.

      The property has a newly decorated entrance porch, which leads into a bright and welcoming entrance hall with engineered oak flooring.

      The sitting room features a cast iron fireplace with slate hearth and French windows, set within a bay, which open out to the front garden terrace.

      The family room comprises a cast iron feature fireplace along with fitted shelves and a cupboard to one side of the chimney breast. The window features white wooden shutters and has an aspect over the rear garden.

      The kitchen/breakfast room has a slate tiled floor and a bespoke ‘John Lewis of Hungerford' wooden wall, along with base units under tiled worktops. Its appliances include a ‘Falcon' range with two ovens and a grill plus five gas burners, a dishwasher and an under counter fridge.

      The utility room with painted wooden cupboards and a beech worktop has space for a large fridge/freezer and plumbing as well as space for two laundry appliances.

      The small inner hallway features stable door to the side entrance.

      The bedrooms are arranged over two floors, with three double rooms and a well-appointed family bathroom on the first floor. The property also has a double and a single bedroom (currently used as a study) plus a further family bathroom on the top floor.

      Outside
      The property is approached from the road via the private drive that leads in to the Ely Grange Estate. There is parking for up to three cars to the rear of the property from which a few steps lead down to the rear entrance. A wrought iron gate at the side leads round the house to the front garden and the entrance porch. The well-stocked, mature front garden is a particular feature of the property and is mostly laid to lawn. It is fenced to one side boundary with close-boarded timber and by mixed hedging to the other boundaries providing a good level of privacy from the drive. The borders are planted for seasonal colour and texture, adding structure and interest to the garden. There is a garden shed at the bottom of the garden.
