The Grange is a wonderful Grade II* listed country house enjoying a secluded setting on the edge of the village of Plaxtol. It works extremely well as a family home that is also ideal for entertaining.
It is thought The Grange was built in 1702, with further additions and landscaping to the gardens undertaken by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1926.
The elegant reception rooms and extensive bedroom accommodation are spread over three floors, with the period features including a galleried reception hall.
The expansive ground floor boasts a fabulous drawing room, a sitting room, a dining room, an inner hall, a games room, two cloakrooms, a central courtyard area and a stunning 36ft kitchen/breakfast room.
Beneath the house is a large basement with a wine cellar and several storerooms.
The bedrooms are also extensive, with an excellent master suite, a guest suite, four further bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor.
The second floor has a further three bedrooms and a cinema room.
In addition, there is a self-contained two-storey annexe with a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms – perfect for staff or guests.
Outside, the gardens at The Grange have been well maintained, with a selection of fine specimen shrubs and trees in an interesting blend of the formal and informal.
There is also a swimming pool, a tennis court, a stable yard with three loose boxes, a tack room plus significant outbuildings.
Additionally, there are three large paddocks and a belt of attractive woodland.
To the north of the house, on the other side of the lane where it is located, is an area of pasture extending to around 25 acres, currently divided into two fields.
The vast expanse of gardens and grounds total approximately 43 acres.
