Enchanting at First Sight

Approach through cast iron entrance gates and along the sweeping driveway to arrive at The Grange, where ample parking is available alongside a double garage. Resplendent in its pleasing Georgian symmetry, box ball topiary adds formality to the front upon approach.

The Heart of the Home

Step through the front door and into the broad, bright and extensive entrance hallway, with original flagstone flooring and tranquil tones to the walls. Make your way into the impressive, open plan kitchen living room. Light and airy, the bespoke kitchen features a host of high specification appliances including a Quooker boiling tap. The vast central island with breakfast bar seating is the perfect place to congregate, with ample room for a Rangemaster cooker in the inglenook and space for an American style larder fridge-freezer. Effortlessly flowing on from the kitchen is the relaxed seating area, filled with natural daylight and warmed by a woodburning stove and underfloor heating. With direct access out to the terrace and pool beyond, this space is the true heart of the home.

Entertain and Unwind

Dressed in Regency shades, the Rectory Red walls add formality and flair in the formal dining room. Large, shuttered, sash windows balance the colour with light, and a fireplace woodburning stove issues warmth and welcome. With fantastic views of the lawns and tennis court to the front, this room offers the ultimate dinner party ambience. Returning to the hallway, discover a number of further reception rooms including a cosy snug with quaint arched red brick fireplace and gas stove, with deep recesses perfect for bookshelves. An inner hallway provides access to a store room and large study. Enjoy movie night from the comfort of your own home, with a cinema room dressed in inky blue, and updated to include full surround sound with integrated speakers in the ceiling and walls. A French door offers instant access outside.

Versatile Spaces

At the rear of the hallway, emerge into a versatile hobby room, previously used as a gym, a study and a sewing room. Light and bright, views extend out over the garden. Exposed stone reveals where this home has been lovingly extended, to create a spacious games room and lounge, with a stunning red brick chimney breast with logburning stove. Planning permission is in place to create a wall of glass opening to the garden, bringing the outdoors in.

Sweet Dreams

Ascending the main staircase you reach a bright and elegant landing with wonderful arch detailing. The Grange is home to nine bedrooms, three of which are found on the second floor, served by a shower room with basin and lavatory. Returning to the first floor, discover four double bedrooms plus a dressing room which could easily serve as a further bedroom, two spacious bathrooms and an enviable principal suite. With a variety of potential incarnations, the bedrooms offer so much flexibility for balanced living, with the opportunity to section different areas off to create self-contained spaces, offices, dressing rooms and more. Seek sanctuary in the principal suite, filled with light and offering views over the lawn and tennis courts to the front, and with a sumptuous en suite shower room.

Slice of Paradise

Set upon nearly three acres, the garden has been extensively landscaped and enhances the lifestyle The Grange seeks to cater for. Spend halcyon summer days reclining by the heated swimming pool, and entertaining family and friends on the terraces. Ready to swing into service is the recently refurbished tennis court, guaranteeing hours of energetic fun for everyone. The rolling lawn garden is perfect for impromptu cricket matches, penalty shoot outs or croquet, and children will find never-ending places in which to play hide and seek! A large kitchen garden (currently a prolific producer of asparagus, strawberries and raspberries) is ideal for those looking to live the good life. Store garden tools, equipment and furniture in one of three garden sheds.
