An elegant 18th Century house requiring refurbishment in a peaceful parkland setting

Kimpton Grange lies at the heart of mature, landscaped gardens and grounds and is approached over a sweeping, tree-lined drive. The house is believed to date from the early 18th century with mid-18th century and 19th century additions. The main house is constructed of mellow red brick under a slate roof.

Internally the house combines light and spacious reception rooms providing excellent entertaining space with comfortable bedroom accommodation over the first and second floors. Of particular note is the elegant drawing room centred on an attractive open fireplace and enjoying wonderful views over the gardens to the lake. Kimpton Grange requires extensive modernisation which allows an opportunity for re-modelling.

This property has 22.6 acres of land.


Outside are two charming period cottages situated to the side of the courtyard. There is a large barn, ideal for storing cars or machinery with a two bedroom flat and further storage space above.

The gardens and grounds provide a truly tranquil setting, laid mostly to lawn and studded with a selection of trees. The principal lawns slope gently down to the lake. To the west is the walled garden with the outdoor swimming pool and pavilion, beyond which is the parkland and paddocks.


Kimpton Grange stands in an elevated position with views over beautifully landscaped gardens and parkland with mature trees. The property is situated in a conservation area on the edge of the popular village of Kimpton surrounded by Green Belt land. Kimpton has a reputation for its strong community spirit and is centered around a high street with numerous 16th century houses and cottages. Facilities include a general store, post office, doctors surgery, a 12th century church and good sports amenities including cricket and tennis clubs.

Harpenden is just 4 miles distant and St Albans 7 miles away, both offering excellent day to day shopping facilities, supermarkets and restaurants. There is an excellent selection of schools in the district including a highly regarded primary and nursery school in the village itself. Prep schools include Aldwickbury, Beechwood Park and Heath Mount. St Albans High School for Girls is located in Wheathampstead, just two miles south, along with Haileybury near Hertford and Haberdashers at Elstree.
