Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Listed GII, The Grange is an extraordinarily beautiful Georgian country house, with all the trimmings a buyer could ask for. The current owners have given the house a new lease of life
with an extensive restoration spanning a 37 year tenure.

The reception rooms are typical of the period with generous proportions, huge sash windows, Georgian fireplaces, and a light and bright feeling throughout. The drawing room is worthy of special
mention, being on the first floor and thus commanding excellent views of the formal gardens and wider grounds. The configuration works well overall. It is rare to find ensuite shower-rooms and a large kitchen/breakfast room in a period
house - their presence here would suit any modern family today, offering the best of both worlds in many ways.

Cottages
The Stable Block is a well-appointed two bedroomed cottage attached to the garages. Downstairs there is a kitchen diner and a comfortable sitting room with a gas fire and French doors opening onto a terrace above the stream. Upstairs a double bedroom and a single bedroom share a bathroom.

In addition, there is a large flat above the garages, known as The Retreat, accessed via an external staircase. The reception and sleeping area is open-plan, with a separate kitchen at one end and a shower room at the other.

Attached to the swimming pool building there is a second cottage known as Courtyard Cottage. Unlike the stable block, this one is single storey but has the advantage of vaulted ceilings and an
open-plan configuration. A small hallway opens onto an open plan kitchen/dining /living space with wood burner and gas-fired Rayburn. There is a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a dressing room. This cottage is accessed via a separate driveway, and benefits from its own parking area and a small private garden.

The Pool House
The swimming pool is housed in a magnificent oak-framed building, and has a kitchen, two changing rooms with showers, and a pavilion overlooking the pool inside and the tennis court outside. There is also an attached timber conservatory which completes the pool complex perfectly.

The Barn
On the opposite side of a courtyard driveway there is a fantastic oak-framed barn, with elements of brick and flint and a thatched roof (rethatched 2017). This building is ideal for parties, weddings etc, and could perhaps offer a revenue stream (subject to the necessary planning and LBC consents).

Winterbourne Dauntsey is convenient for the City of Salisbury which has an excellent range of educational, recreational, leisure and shopping
facilities. A twice weekly market in addition to a mainline railway station with regular services into Waterloo make this beautiful Cathedral city a
one-stop-shop. The village of Grateley is on the mainline railway to London Waterloo. The A303 is also within easy striking distance which gives direct access to the West Country, and the M3
and London to the east. The local area is renowned for its schools, both private and state.
Salisbury offers very good Grammar Schools for both girls and boys whilst there are numerous prep schools in the area including Chafyn Grove and the
Cathedral School. At senior level there are Godolphin, Marlborough College and Dauntseys to name but a few.

The house is approached along a gravelled drive lined with yew columns and immaculate topiary box hedging. This turns into a sweeping drive in front of the house, and continues round to the
garages and parking at one side.

The door from the back hallway and utility room opens into a pretty walled courtyard which leads to the Stable Block and main parking area on one side and to the gardens on the other.

The gardens are perhaps one of the most impressive elements of The Grange, having been painstakingly re-designed and landscaped over the last 37 years. Now, with maturity and scale, they surround and compliment this house to perfection. With a mixture of formal areas, immaculate
topiary and box hedging, stone terraces, open lawns, sunken streams with bridges, woodland gardens, a Japanese style garden, an extensive orchard and much more, the new owner will want for nothing.

A large well-established and very productive kitchen garden which has been built up over time, and impresses year after year. In addition, there are two greenhouses, a potting shed and a
dovecote which is used as a wood store.

There is an excellent tennis court adjacent to the kitchen garden, which is discretely hidden from view by espalier fruit trees, box hedging and a laburnum tunnel.

The grazing extends to some 16 acres, and is arranged in a series of well maintained paddocks.
A second driveway opens into a large parking area with a separate barn/store/garage building with a large open plan first floor accessed via an
internal staircase.
