The Property

The Property
Set in some 22 acres of grounds the house dates back to the late 1800s and was formerly part of the Wallington Estate. West Grange has been in the present family for many years and was utilised by the RAF during the second world war. The house is predominantly south facing and is constructed of stone under a slate roof and has been maintained to a very high standard. The property has a wealth of character including high ceilings, oak floors, sash & case windows, working shutters and solid mahogany doors with individually carved architraves and beading. All of the public rooms have open fireplaces. The property offers comfortable and flexible accommodation with naturally light rooms all benefitting from stunning views over the garden and grounds. The tiled reception hall forms the core of the house leading to all public rooms. The formal dining room and drawing room are excellent entertaining rooms of generous proportions. Of particular note are the stunning marble fireplaces and bay windows. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen which leads to a utility room, larder and pantry. There is also a boot room and cloakroom. A fine mahogany staircase leads to the first floor where there are seven well proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms. The second floor leads to 6 spacious rooms, which we believe was once home to the family nursery and servants quarters, a temporary access is in place, however, the original staircase which rose from the first floor landing still exists and could be reinstated by the new owner. A well maintained courtyard sits to the rear of the property with a range of outbuildings including log store, hayloft, stables and dog kennels. The cottage and flat could be used by staff or relatives. The detached cottage has 3 bedrooms, kitchen with Rayburn, sitting room and a bathroom with shower. The flat contains two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.
