An impressive late Victorian country house situated in a beautiful unspoilt rural position

Location

The Grange occupies a secluded and elevated position in a remarkably unspoilt pocket of countryside with fine south and southwest views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

The market town of Aylsham, which adjoins the Blickling Estate now in the care of the National Trust, is about 3 miles and has good shopping and banking facilities. The village of Erpingham has a village school and public house.

The Georgian market town of Holt is about 8 miles away and offers excellent shopping facilities and other amenities including Greshams, the renowned public school for boys and girls. The North Norfolk coast, much of which is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a Heritage coastline, is some 3 miles further and offers numerous recreational pursuits including bird watching and excellent sailing facilities at Blakeney and Morston. There are eighteen hole golf courses at Cromer, Sheringham and Brancaster. Cley-next-the-Sea is renowned as a major bird sanctuary with fresh and salt water marshes. The Cathedral city of Norwich is about 18 miles to the south and has a regular train service to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of approximately 1 hour 40 minutes. Norwich Airport, which is situated on the north side of the city, is about 16 miles way and offers international destinations via Schiphol.

Description

The Grange is a substantial house with typical late Victorian architectural detail and has well proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights. The Grange is traditionally constructed of mellow red brick with steep pintile roofs and tall chimneys and occupies a secluded and elevated position with fine south and southwest views over the gardens and countryside beyond.

The current owners purchased the property from Savills at the end of 2003. From that time they have carried out full refurbishment to the house including new plumbing and wiring, the addition of a new garden room leading off a newly fitted kitchen, the construction of a new garage block(not completed) and upgrading of the sewerage systems. The property is well presented and features some fine rooms including a stunning staircase hall and staircase. The main reception rooms all lead off this central hallway with oak flooring and there are fine panel doors and good fireplaces including a carved oak chimney piece in the drawing room. The house has flexible accommodation with the potential to create a separate apartment should it be required. The Grange makes a wonderful family home in a delightful and idyllic setting yet only 3 miles from the market town of Aylsham.

The house was built by the Ives family who owned much of the surrounding estate which remained in the family until 1982 when the previous owners acquired it. This is therefore only the second time the property has been on the open market.

Outside
The house is approached via a pair of security wrought iron gates mounted on brick pillars with curved walls and then leads via a long gravelled driveway up to the parking and turning area to the house. A more recently constructed brick built garage block situated at the top of the drive is almost complete with a room above which would make an ideal gym or work from home office. From the parking area, a gate and retaining wall leads to an attractive paved part of the garden serving the front entrance as well as steps down to a further paved area on the north side and to the rear entrance of the house and to the garden room.

On the south side of the house, the main hall entrance door leads out onto an attractive paved terrace with neat boxed hedging looking out across wide lawned gardens with shrubs, trees and mature shrubberies. Whilst the gardens on the north side lead away from the garden room and again have attractive paved seating areas with steps leading down via borders and shrubberies to a further large wide lawned garden enjoying far reaching countryside views.

The gardens and grounds in all extend to 2.07 acres (est).
