Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II listed 17th century five bedroom house with around 1.5 acres of garden, a purpose-built gym/sauna and a one bedroom detached annexe. Marquis House was formerly the Marquis of Granby public house which ceased trading in 1966 and later became a family home. The property retains character features including exposed beams, latched doors and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner.
Over the years, the house has been extended and improved and now offers versatile accommodation of over 3,200 sq. ft. The ground floor accommodation in the main house includes two formal reception rooms, a study, a fitted kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and a shower room.

The first floor has four double bedrooms, one single bedroom, two en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom.
In addition to the one bedroom annexe, there is a gym/sauna with underfloor heating, a summerhouse and a garden shed. The driveway provides parking for up to ten cars.

Ground Floor Highlights

The two principal reception rooms have beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces, with the sitting room also having a log burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of fitted units with granite worktops and integrated appliances. There is also a central island, an Aga and two separate electric ovens and hob.

All five bedrooms have wooden flooring and beams. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room, a vaulted ceiling and a balcony overlooking the gardens and open countryside. There are three further double bedrooms on this floor - with bedroom two also having an en suite shower room - together with a single bedroom and a family bathroom.


The rear garden is around .75 acre and laid mainly to lawn. The side garden has seating areas, mature trees and shrubs.
