Description

Dating back to the late 17th century, The Grange is a pretty Cotswold village house, full of character and historical detail. The house which has been much improved by the present owners stands in a delightful garden and with the paddock the whole property extends to about two acres. In addition there is a particularly useful two bedroom cottage with garaging at one end.

Internally the house provides three good sized reception rooms all of which have a south westerly aspect over the garden. All have open fireplaces, flagstone floors and window shutters. From the dining room there is direct access into the kitchen (with aga) having a walk-in larder and opening into a relatively newly built garden/family with direct access to the garden. There is also a second cloakroom, there also being one off the front entrance porch. The panelling in the hall is understood to have come from the parish church.

On the first floor there is a generous main suite which incorporates a newly fitted bathroom and a dressing room with American Oak wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a fourth bedroom having the use of a separate shower room. On the second floor there are a series of five rooms; three bedrooms, bathroom and a vaulted sitting/media/playroom. The first floor can also be accessed via a secondary staircase leading up from the kitchen.

To the front of the house is a gravelled parking area with side access to the beautifully stocked walled garden which also includes a mulberry tree. Herbaceous borders surround the lawn and adjacent to the house is a flagstone terrace. A further lawned area is found next to the family room where there is also a paved terraced. On the opposite side off the north wall is a productive vegetable garden which is fenced off from the paddock. There is also a smaller paddock which extends round to the yard and outbuildings from where there is direct access from the village street.

In short The Grange is a wonderful family home with the benefit of private grounds, paddock and a separate cottage. It also enjoys a private position in a popular and conveniently placed village.
