Description

Heath Grange is a fine Edwardian House set in magnificent mature grounds on the south side of Kings Drive. It is a handsome property with rendered elevations beneath a slate roof which was built by a Liverpool shipping merchant. The house is approached via electric timber gates and a drive leads to a turning circle at the front of the house. The part glazed front door is set within a semi-circular bay with an ornate architrave with a header bearing a relief of Poseidon. There are a number of other panels within the house with nautical images adding to the property's provenance and maritime heritage. A door from a lobby opens into a superb panelled hall with an impressive staircase.

There are doors from the hall to a cloakroom and the main reception rooms. These include an elegant drawing room with a wooden floor, a marble fireplace, a rectangular bay and a door to the veranda. The games room has a dual aspect with further exposed woodwork and a fireplace.

The sitting room provides a relaxed space with a minster style fireplace, a bay window and a door to the sunroom. The dining room also has southerly aspect and is situated conveniently close to the family kitchen with its good range of storage units with granite work surfaces and Lacanche range cooker.

Stairs lead from the reception hall to a half landing with a bay window and then up to the main landing. On the first floor there is a fine master bedroom suite with a bathroom and dressing room, a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom, 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

On the second floor is a bedroom/games room, a games area, a store room and loft storage. To one side of the house is an excellent leisure suite, linked to the garaging, incorporating an indoor pool, a gym, bar, sitting area and shower room.

The gardens and grounds provide a wonderful setting for the house. They include numerous mature trees and shrubs providing a private setting, areas of lawn and terracing. There is a particularly attractive top terrace adjacent to the house partly enclosed by a low wall.
