Full descriptionA Grade II listed house that was part of the original Manor House set on the outskirts of Kenilworth. Situated in a generous three acres this traditional property is awash with original features.
Vendor Comment - "We moved our family here because Wootton Grange has a good deal of privacy yet is located in a wonderful, friendly neighbourhood," said owner Kim. "We have over three acres of land, enabling our children to run around freely in their spare time. Its great to be cooking in the kitchen whilst watching the children ride their bikes and play games with their friends, at the front and the back of the house. Here the children can be free and safe, at the same time."
The local community welcomed the owners and helped them to settle in their new home immediately. "We live in a fantastic, close-knit community," Kim adds. "The neighbours are incredibly helpful and that has certainly been a big part of the joy of living here. Anything we needed, our neighbours were among the first to offer help, which just makes living in the area extra special. "
Built over 550 years ago, the property has an impressively solid stone, timber beam and brick exterior and offers a number of historic features. These include an original fireplace and two storey character chimney breast, a wealth of original beams throughout the interior and some wonderful hand-made period doors.
Whilst restoring some of the historic features, the owners also took the opportunity to update the interior to accommodate the 21st century lifestyle. Kim says "We renovated the home to create a traditional yet quirky feel. Our renovations include replacing the flooring, windows and doors and renewing the bathrooms. A lot of work went into the spacious double-height room that opens onto the garden through some French doors, we sometimes use it for dining and entertaining and its a real favourite. We also extended the garage into a triple space, and included a staircase onto the top floor, which adds more useful space."
Located in beautiful surroundings, the lifestyle here is superb all year round. Kim commented, "In our home, the family enjoy winter as much as summer. In the winter, the snow covers the gardens and we have enchanting views of white snow and frost, with hints of green poking through. We build snowmen, make snow angels and create so many fun memories. From spring to autumn, we host luncheons, barbecue parties and dinners under the sun. My husband enjoyed the garden in the summer so much, he mowed the lawn regularly, created a mini golf course and spent time there with the children every weekend."
Kim concluded, "This house has been lots of fun and we will miss living here dearly. We are sure this will be the perfect home for the next family. "

In June 2015 Wootton Grange House was treated for an infestation of Japanese Knotweed. The owners instructed a professional Knotweed removal service TP Knotweed. They have eradicated the problem with a three year Knotweed Management Plan (KMP). This involved undertaking regular foliar spray herbicide treatments and also stem injection treatments using the TP Stem Injection System (where appropriate), to gradually destroy the Japanese Knotweed. Any new growth will be monitored and treated effectively over a period of three years. On completion of the KMP we will be presented with a 10 year guarantee and insurance policy.
