The Grange is an impressive and immaculately maintained red-brick family home dating back in parts to the 16th Century. Offering over 5,000 sq. ft. of characterful and adaptable internal accommodation and private gardens extending to 0.5 acre. The outbuildings offer great potential to extend the current property or to create for example, a separate annex for a dependant relative.
The handsome arched entranceway opens to triple reception rooms, all benefitting from fine sash windows, original shutters and charming feature fireplaces, with the rich original handcarved wood-panelled formal dining room, with an Inglenook fireplace, a music room and an elegant sitting room. Adjacent is a wellequipped home office with bespoke fitted furniture and garden access, beside which is a cloakroom. The accommodation flows to a bright hallway with turned stairs to the first floor and through to the character kitchen with its beamed ceilings, fireplace, black AGA-style range and an array of in-keeping farmhousestyle cabinetry. There is a useful pantry and a large, well-equipped utility room, with the floor completed by a chic, light-filled dual-aspect family room. Both the family room and kitchen benefit from underfloor heating.
On the first floor are five well-proportioned and immaculately presented bedrooms with tranquil aspects and an array of further retained period features and Queen Anne fireplaces, as well as two stylish family bathrooms with luxury freestanding bathtubs. The principal suite with an orignial fireplace enjoys the use of a dressing room, whilst a further bedroom benefits from a wall of integrated wardrobes. On the floor above is a capacious two-roomed adaptable attic space.
The property benefits from a generous village plot, set back from the road via a low red-brick wall with sizeable level lawned garden wrapping around the home interspersed with a variety of shrubbery and mature trees and a paved walled sun terrace. A cobbled driveway flows up to the attached garage with adjacent stores, a boiler room, a granary and a third floor above.
