Grove House is a stunning double fronted Georgian residence understood to date back to the late 1700s and offering a considerable level of character and features, but sympathetically extended and refurbished to create a well proportioned and versatile level of accommodation which approaches 1900 sq ft.

The fourth reception/study makes a superb home office tucked away from the main accommodation and lies adjacent to a useful utility and shower room allowing this area of the house to potentially be utilised as an annexe, perfect for extended families with elderly relative or teenagers. In addition a sympathetically modernised kitchen with hand painted units and granite work surfaces completes this fascinating beautifully presented home.
