THE GRANGE, 25 BURROUGH STREET, ASH, TA12 6NZ

Accommodation

The Grange has imposing, handsome elevations set back from the village lane behind pretty wrought-iron railings. The property is constructed from Ham stone ashlar, with stone mullioned windows, underneath a plain clay tiled roof. To the rear the property has been latterly extended, and the property totals over 3,000 sq.ft. internally. Now requiring a full scheme of renovation, the property represents an immense opportunity to create an awe-inspiring family home, full of character and period detail. There are many features throughout the property, including several impressive fireplaces.

*

The front door opens into an elegant hallway with a staircase rising to the first floor, and a reception room on either side. The sitting room on the right hand side has a magnificent ashlar stone fireplace with a wooden lintel, as well as two pretty window seats facing out to the front, and French doors leading to the rear garden. On the opposite side of the hall, there is another main reception room, also enjoying superb features like a fireplace and window seat, and also an eye-catching cross beam ceiling. There are two further reception rooms on the ground floor, one of which being the study/library, and the other is the garden room. The garden room was part of a later addition with a slate tiled roof and plenty of light flooding in through the plentiful windows. It has an delightful view of the garden and great potential to improve.

**

The kitchen requires total replacement but currently has several fitted units, and an oil fired AGA. Accessed from the kitchen, there is a pantry cupboard, boot room with back door and cloakroom. From the rear hall, the original servants' staircase leads to the first floor. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, and one single room/study. All of the double rooms have built-in wardrobes, and the master bedroom benefits from a dressing room, and an adjoining bathroom which is not en-suite but could serve as the primary bathroom for this bedroom should a master wing be created. There is a further bathroom too.

***

A cupboard door from the second bedroom obscures another stairwell which leads to the loft. There is currently a small dormer window which lights part of the attic and with further work, subject to the necessary consents, the expansive loft could be further utilised.

Outside

In a similar vein, the gardens at The Grange also require extensive work to revive their true splendour, but again they are not short of potential by any means. A driveway entrance passes the house and garage on the opposite side, leading round to a parking area which can be resized as necessary. Behind the parking area, there are several adjoining stone barns which are ripe for conversion - subject to the usual consents. Totalling over 1,500sq. Ft, the barns could offer potential for storage, garaging, ancillary accommodation, workshop use and more.

*

Extending past the barns, the gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, with several interspersing native and fruit trees. Towards the end of the garden, making the most of the field view to the rear, there is an attractive timber gazebo.
