Tenure: Freehold

Accessed along a tree lined private driveway The Grange is a Grade B listed former manse, constructed circa 1820 with the further addition of a two storey extension circa 1890 and is finished in dressed stone, under a pitched slate roof. Many of the Georgian/Victorian period features have been retained including decorative cornicing, working shutters, sash windows and ornamental fireplaces.

There is a gravel sweep to the front of the house and steps lead up to the front door which has a stone pediment above. The floor of the vestibule has quarried tiles and a half glazed astragal style door which allows daylight to flood into the welcoming entrance hall. The drawing room has an excellent outlook with a large southerly facing tripartite window with views beyond the front garden to the Ochil hills.

A central focal point is the solid fuel stove with slate hearth and an attractive painted timber mantle. There is decorative cornicing, a picture rail & the floor is solid wood. The dining room also has a solid fuel stove with a slate hearth & timber mantle. There is a fitted carpet, cornicing, a picture rail & southerly facing bay window which makes the most of the outstanding scenery. The family room is symmetrical to the dining room. It has a southerly window, a solid fuel burning stove with slate hearth and painted timber mantle. The original floor boards remain; there is plain cornicing, a picture rail & recessed press cup-board. The family room is open to the double aspect dining kitchen where there is a range of floor & wall mounted units with granite style roll-top work surface, a stainless steel sink with mixer tap, an Electrolux cooker with electric oven, halogen hob and extractor fan above with tiled splash back. There is a 'hidden' fire place which could accommodate an AGA/Raeburn should a purchaser wish to install one. There is ample room for a considerable sized dining table. The rear lobby has a door to the rear garden and space for a double fridge freezer and over head shelving. The utility room has fitted wall units with space for 2 washing machines and a tumble dryer. There is a stainless steel sink, boiler, ground source heat pump and hot water storage tank. A Worcester oil fuelled boiler remains available but following complete replacement of the plumbing & heating system within the past 10 years, a NIBE 12kw Ground Source Heat Pump now efficiently provides all the hot water & central heating to the property. There is also a 4kw solar PV system which reduces electricity consumption and currently has a import/export tariff which may be transferrable. The back porch has a cloak hanging area & stairs leading to the original maids' room (restricted ceiling height) which is currently used as an office/storage space with a dormer window to the north east. Further accommodation on the ground floor comprises a fifth bedroom with fire place & a window with a pleasant outlook to the rear garden, a bathroom with WC, wash hand basin and bath with hand-held shower attachment. There is a study/bedroom 6 with a fire place which completes the accommoda-tion at this level.

On the first floor the rooms are over two tiers. On the upper tier the master bedroom has a southerly facing window with beautiful & far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. There is a fire place with tiled hearth, decorative tiled insert and painted timber mantle and there is a generous dressing room which provides useful hanging and shelving. Two further bedrooms share the same southerly views & one has a fire place. On the lower tier is bedroom 4 with a fire place and two windows with storage below. The family bathroom has a 3 piece Jenny Wren suite which includes a wash hand basin, WC and bath with hand held shower attachment. There is a corner shower cubicle with mains fed Mira shower, 2 heated towel rails and a large fitted linen cupboard. There is also a shower room which has a WC, wash hand basin, shower cubical and a heated towel rail.

The mature gardens which surround the property have variety of fruit, lime, oak and elm trees, plants and shrubs, most notably a large copper beech tree at the front of the property. The front garden is enclosed by an attractive Laurel hedge and is
predominantly laid to lawn with ample parking. The rear garden has a lawn, patio area and outbuildings offering much potential for development into ancillary accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions. The adjoining buildings comprise a workshop, log and coal stores, further store room and an outside WC. There is also a generous double garage with a stable door.
