PROPERTY OVERVIEW With 8 acres of adjoining paddocks and a number of stone outbuildings, this substantial and attractive, unlisted Victorian farmhouse dates from about 1882. Occupying a private position within a popular village, well screened from neighbours, the house sits within almost 3.5 acres of beautifully mature landscaped gardens, with 8 acres of adjoining paddocks and a large and lofted stone stable block, complete with stalls.
Gracing the market for the first time in 50 years, the house offers generously proportioned reception rooms, with high ceilings, large sash windows, many retaining working shutters, and attractive fireplaces. The grand central staircase hall offers access to the impressive principal rooms; the sitting and dining room, which connect to one another with double doors, the lounge and breakfasting kitchen, along with the significant ancillary rooms, including laundry, old dairy and cloak rooms.
At first floor level, the five bedrooms are all doubles. The three room principal suite incorporates an en suite bathroom and a dressing room, whilst there are three further large second floor attic bedrooms.
The property additionally has two large, stone built outbuildings. A detached two storey barn, with stable stalls, which is thought by the sellers to have ancillary planning potential (subject to all consents), and a single storey, glass fronted, stone garden building.
GARDENS The gardens are a particular feature at The Grange. Wrapping around the house, but largely to the rear, they extend to about 3.5 acres. They encompass formal lawns with an array of beautiful spring bulbs, flowering and shrub borders, coupled with a variety of mixed species trees. They provide great privacy and offer families the most wonderful setting for play and for garden entertaining and link perfectly to the two large adjoining large paddocks, of circa 8 acres in total that lie to the east of the gardens.
