Historical Note
The house is thought to have been substantially constructed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, however, the centre area is believed to date from approximately 1825 and evolved from an earlier 18th century house.

Over the years The Grange has been upgraded and modernised by the current owners into a comfortable family home with significant ancillary and secondary accommodation. In particular, great thought and attention has been paid to landscaping the grounds over a period of many years. They are now mature with boundary screening providing a high degree of privacy. In particular, the southern elevation and terrace of the house benefit from outstanding vistas over sweeping lawns down to the lake and beyond.

Moulton Grange is now listed Grade II as being of historical and architectural interest.

The Property
Approached over a long drive and through electric gates to a substantial turning and parking area in front of the house principal accommodation commences with the reception hall which has an ornate marble floor leading onto the other principal accommodation. In particular, the drawing room of substantial proportions has a magnificent carved fireplace with over mantle and marble inset. The floors are of polished exposed boarding and there is a deep bay window. This room enjoys double doors to the sitting room which may also be approached via an inner hall with excellent southerly views over the gardens. To the west of the house is a garden room and covered loggia with interconnecting doors to the billiard room with window seating and bench seating around the fireplace. Again, approached from the inner hall is the formal dining room with views over the gardens and again, of substantial proportions. Beyond this lies the well fitted kitchen with centre island unit, larder and breakfast room.

Beyond the formal accommodation lies the utility area with ancillary accommodation and staff or guest flat.

Accessed from the side hall, with a door giving access to the cellars which are mainly stone flagged with wine bins and extraction system installed.

On the first floor the principal bedroom accommodation is arranged either side of a galleried landing which in turn, behind a locked door gives access to the further ancillary accommodation and ultimately guest/staff areas.

PARKLAND
Externally, the formal landscaped gardens lay principally to the south with sweeping lawns descending to the lake which features an ornamental fountain. Around the lake are a number of hidden “gardens” with grotto, secondary lake, stream, further sweeping lawns and connecting each carefully thought out gravel pathways.

The mature specimen trees include magnificent Cedar of Lebanon, Oak, Copper Beach, Japanese maple, Monkey Puzzle tree, Willow and Mexican Blossom.

The boundary hedges include mature tall Holly and Laurel.

Set to convenient locations are the garage and outbuilding area, machinery store, greenhouse and brick built potting shed.

Surrounding part of the formal gardens is the park land and pasture land which is well fenced and contains a number of mature specimen trees.
