Property Description

Full description

A beautifully restored farmhouse in an enviable rural setting with views over farmland.

Situated in a delightful rural location, largely surrounded by farmland, Grove House is an attractive Grade II listed farmhouse, having been built on the Euston Estate for the Estate Manager in the early 19th century, with a blend of white gault brick and colour-washed elevations underneath a black pan-tiled roofline.

The house, having left the Estate's ownership, had over many years lost a great deal of its original features and charm, however, the current owner has spent the last ten years meticulously restoring the house, employing the original specification wherever possible, which remained in the Estate's records. As a result, the property has been completely rewired and re-plumbed, as well as the reinstatement of specified marbleised slate fire surrounds, wooden floorboards, deep skirting and plaster moulded cornicing and ceiling roses. The house offers practical two-storey family accommodation whilst enjoying elegant proportions, generous ceiling heights and a large level of natural light with large sash windows.

The ground floor comprises a large reception hall with a superb staircase with lovely detailed balustrade, and solid wood floors. The drawing room enjoys aspect, with fireplace housing a wood-burning stove, complemented on the other side of the hallway by a double-aspect dining room with marbleised slate hearth and mantelpiece.

The Aga kitchen is traditionally designed and fitted with a painted Shaker-style kitchen with granite work surfaces and door through to the sitting room, with fireplace housing a wood-burning stove, and terracotta pamment floor.

Leading on from the sitting room is a garden hall with large store cupboard and water softener, a triple-aspect study and inner hall with storage cupboard, secondary staircase to the first floor, and giving access to a laundry room, cloakroom with antique high-cistern WC, and cellar with pamment floor, exposed brickwork - a useable space with original ice larder.

On the first floor is a large attractive landing area with a lovely view over the surrounding countryside, giving access to a double-aspect master bedroom with cast-iron mantel and grate and steps down to an en suite bathroom which is beautifully fitted, on oak flooring, with a large shower cubicle, freestanding roll-top, ball-and-claw-foot bath, vanity unit with wash hand basin, and heated towel rail.

The four further bedrooms, which enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding countryside, are served by the family bathroom, which has been beautifully fitted with a high-quality bath suite with ball-and-claw-foot bath and freestanding shower cabinet.

The property is situated on a quiet country lane and approached via double electric gates which open to a sweeping gravel driveway and an abundance of off-road parking, with access to a double garage and adjoining cart lodge. The property sits pleasantly in the centre of its plot, laid largely to lawn, with several raised vegetable beds and planters and a large dining terrace which enjoys a south-easterly aspect. To one side of the property is a sizeable woodland area, whilst an internal courtyard has doors leading to a range of useful outbuildings to include two garden stores, large log store and gardener's WC.
