Standing in extensive mature grounds, well hidden from the road, The Grange is a name that summons up an air of grandeur, indicative of bygone years. This would have been very true of this beautiful home, many years ago. However, the fact of the matter today, is a programme of repairs and modernisation are required to reinstate the property to its former glory.
Within, we feel the arrangement of accommodation is excellent. At one time the property was divided into two, then reinstated years later by the current owner. Throughout there is a wealth of period features in evidence, bearing testimony and strong links to nearby historical Carlton Towers, built around the same era, circa 1860. Locally it is thought The Grange was designed and built for 'the big house's' land agent and we imagine the grounds would have extended further.
Offered with the house is a range of outbuildings and a separate cottage.
The accommodation offers in brief: vestibule, grand hallway, drawing room, dining room, breakfast kitchen, boot room, rear lobby ground floor cloakroom/bathroom, study/conservatory, den and a sitting room. To the first floor there is a guest bedroom and shower room, a master bedroom with connecting dressing room, four further bedrooms and a principal bathroom.
In our opinion, The Grange offers immediate potential for a buyer with creative flair, a strong passion for character and an abundance of ideas, in order to manage the project and create a home of ones own personal taste and requirements. The opportunities are endless, the potential, whilst challenging, possibly so very rewarding too.

To protect the interest of the seller for the future. In the event of residential planning being granted for development over the grounds within 25 years from the date of completion of sale, there will be a 50% clawback. The clawback applies to the uplift in value following any residential planning permissions. It is suggested all interested parties do discuss this with their solicitors. However, please note this will affect those who wish to develop the site for residential purposes in future years, not those who are looking to buy The Grange and the grounds for their personal use and family home.
