Description

A brief history
Steeped in history this regal residence has noted royal connections where it has been said that the Royal Princess Margaret was often a guest. Also, home of the Foxhunter stud, founded by Sir Harry Llewellyn in memory of his famous show jumper, a Gold medal winner in the 1952 Helsinki Olympic games and now the name given to the local public house.

House
Llanfair Grange is an impressive Grade II listed Georgian style family house approached through wrought iron gates flanked by a stone wall and alone a tree avenue drive. The rooms benefit from wonderful Georgian proportions with 12 feet high ceilings and the large shuttered windows bath them in light. Along with an array of fine period features this property has a rare elegance.

A pillared portico entrance leads through double doors into a grand hall with a wide oak staircase and galleried landing which has a large window overlooking the Skirrid. The oak floor continues through to the drawing room and dining room sitting in perfect symmetry either side of the hall perfect for entertaining.

All the main reception rooms enjoy fine cornice detail, working period fireplaces and stunning views of the gardens and beyond. In particular, the drawing room is centred around a George III carved white marble fireplace and overlooks the gardens with further views to the Skirrid.

In keeping with modern living, the country style kitchen importantly has a spacious dining area as well as a five door Aga, central island, extensively fitted solid units, granite work surfaces, inset butchers block and Belfast sink. Conveniently located next to the dining room and additional dining hall, the kitchen also leads to a pantry and utility room which gives access to the attractive court yard.

An inner hall leads through to the older original part of the house and, while still maintaining good proportions and characterful features, has a more informal feel. The majority of these rooms enjoy the views of, and have direct access to, the beautiful gardens.

Accessible from the utility hall or its own external separate entrance, is a three-bedroom self-contained flat with lounge, kitchen and bathroom providing ideal accommodation for staff.

Two separate stair cases lead up to the first floor which consists of three bedroom suites all comprising their own dressing room and bathroom plus their own unique view of the grounds.

The master bedroom suite includes an additional sitting room which, as well as the other suites’ dressing rooms, could be an individual bedroom. In addition, there is a further separate bedroom and WC on the first floor.

The second floor has 5 bedrooms, including two en-suite bathrooms, plus a further two bathrooms, WC and storage.

The basement features a bar area with dance floor, pool table area, table tennis area, wine cellar and boiler room.

Outside
The beautiful 34 acres of grounds are split into paddocks, fields and formal gardens. An Italian garden and impressive walled garden sit amongst the extensive acreage and outbuildings.

Within the grounds are an open-air swimming pool and tennis court serviced by a Greek style taverna with kitchen.
