A Grade II Listed village house

Tadmarton Grange is a substantial Grade II listed Country House dating back to the 17th Century. The property was rebuilt in 1842 and more recently completely renovated by the current owners.

The structural works include the opening up and relaying the newly discovered flag stone floors in the magnificent hallway. A stunning new kitchen designed and fitted by Guild Anderson, with "Windsor" doors opening to the family sitting room. A separate sitting/media room created as well as a large boot room. The main reception (the drawing room has had a new floor installed) and bedrooms have all been completely refurbished, as has the "working" end of the house with a new office, laundry room and a further boot room/plant room.

Upstairs new bathrooms have been fitted throughout, cupboards installed and a new dressing room to the main bedroom. The top floor has been opened up too to create a wonderful children's "den" or home office.

Beyond the main house is the Stables, Coach House and Cow House now converted with a first floor 1 bedroom Groom's flat, gym and separate stables. Planning permission is in place to convert the stables to further accommodation.

Ancillary Accommodation There are two cottages at the property:

Guest Wing - Attached to the main house is a charming three bedroom cottage. This too has undergone a complete refurbishment programme including new windows, kitchen and bathrooms. The wing has its own entrance but connects through to the main house if required. The bedrooms are all approached via the main staircase in this wing, but could be very easily re-connected to the main part of the house if required.

Stable Flat - A very useful one bedroom flat, let out via an Short Assured Tenancy.

Outbuildings - Positioned below the main house is a useful range of outbuildings including a charming period Coach House, the ground floor now converted to a gym, and a 1 bedroom guest/staff or groom's flat above. The adjoining stables have planning permission to convert into further accommodation. There are additional outbuildings within the grounds consisting of potting sheds, logs stores and other useful store rooms, stables and open store.

This property has 23.55 acres of land.

Outside

The main drive leads down to the Coach House and outbuildings. The gardens have been extensively re landscaped and are a particular feature. A large terrace extends from the kitchen and drawing room. The gardens surround the house on three sides and are populated with mature trees offering a high degree of privacy. Beautiful flower borders with brick and stone walls surround well-kept lawns. A substantial vegetable garden with refurbished green house. Beyond the coach house is the paddock and tennis court with scope for a pool and pool house subject to planning consent. There is secondary vehicular access to this area.
