Farmhouse & range of traditional barns 11.27 Acres
Grange Farmhouse is an impressive Grade II Listed house, described as a late Renaissance property dating from the early 18th century, with 19th century re workings; predominately of stone construction the house benefits from a pretty, classic front façade adorned with sash windows. Adjacent to the house is a significant range of traditional farm buildings benefitting from planning consent for residential conversion, with great potential for a variety of uses. The house and barns enjoy a uniquely private position, accessed via a newly installed private drive and complemented by some 11¼ acres of attractive land.
The house was sympathetically renovated in 2016, major works including: re-roofing, replacement plumbing and electrics, restoration of windows, new boiler with zoned heating system, new bathrooms, fitted kitchen with modern Rayburn range, a new main entrance drive, a new water supply and a new drainage system.
The main house accommodation extends to 2,990 ft², arranged over three floors and in summary comprises; 4 large double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms. A very useful cellar is accessed from an internal stairs and from the rear courtyard. This provides 2 rooms with excellent storage and a good utility room.
Throughout the house there are many architectural details, enhanced by high ceilings. Period features include large sash windows with shutters, flagstone flooring in the kitchen, vaulted ceilings to 2nd floor, exposed beams and period fireplaces.
The traditional outbuildings
A substantial range of redundant, traditional stone outbuildings lie west of and adjacent to the farmhouse. These buildings were granted planning and listed building consent for residential conversion in 2006. We are advised that ground works (installation of the drainage system) have been carried out, sufficient to be deemed to have started the development, planning has therefore been crystallised.
The consented plans create 2 spacious, 3 bedroomed attached dwellings, The Corn Barn and The Stables. A third dwelling is created from The Cow House, which will provide a 2 bedroom, single storey property, adjoining the farmhouse. These proposed dwellings have great scope for ancillary accommodation or to provide income potential via rental or holiday homes. With planning already crystallised and unrestricted, development can be managed over an economically viable timescale.
