The Grange

The Grange is a substantial and charming three storey residence with over 5,000 square feet of space, set in grounds of approximately 0.71 acres. Full of character, the house includes many original features such as the stone mullion windows, ornate plasterwork and large fireplaces built and maintained to an excellent standard in approximately 1890.

The flexible accommodation contains sixteen large rooms and could comfortably be utilised as either a house with separate annexe accommodation or as a large single dwelling as required. The property can be approached via two separate, private driveways, one of which leads from the main Stokesley Road (shared) along a quarter mile straight route to an impressive gate and large, gravelled driveway at the front of the house. A further private road in from Yarm Lane leads to the rear, block-paved driveway and garaging.

Accommodation

The eye-catching, arched solid wood front door opens into the vestibule which in turn leads through to the grand and welcoming entrance hall with its mullioned stone windows. From here, there is access to the reception rooms and the main staircase as well as the inner hallway, with its beautiful stained glass windows.

The property offers a choice of two large sitting rooms, both with fireplaces, ornate plasterwork and windows overlooking the well-maintained front gardens. Along the hall, passing the rear stairs and immediately behind the kitchen, is the formal dining room, which is perfect for entertaining. Adjacent to the dining room is the family room or study; with a door to the exterior, this lends itself as an ideal access point should an annexe be required.

The family kitchen is a lovely, light room with a dual aspect and plenty of space for a social gathering, with a central island and breakfast bar at which to enjoy a coffee break. A great utility room opposite ensures all the essentials are kept neatly out of the way and provides an ideal place to shuck off your walking or gardening gear after a muddy boot day.

The first floor landing, accessed via the main staircase, benefits from a beautiful set of five stained glass windows and leads to five primary bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The dual aspect master bedroom suite is light and airy with a range of built-in and walk-in wardrobes, a dressing room and windows providing views over the gardens and countryside towards the hills beyond. Three further double bedrooms share the stunning views, while the fifth double room is utilised as the current owner s study but could, with a little vision, be incorporated into the master suite to create something really special.

A feature our owners love is the walk-in linen store, which keeps all of your laundry requirements organised and will be the envy of your guests.

Partway along the landing, you will find the rear stairs back down to the ground floor and a doorway to the second floor, which has three large double rooms and a shower room, all with outstanding views. This could become the ideal guest or teenage retreat.

Externally

The gardens at The Grange are indeed something special with a mix of almost everything you might want. Nature and nurture have been embraced to create both formal and relaxed locations, meaning there is a choice of places to sit and relax depending on your mood. To the rear of the kitchen, there is a lovely patio courtyard for casual dining or morning coffee. The front gardens are hedged and bordered with a good mix of trees, shrubs and a well-manicured lawn from which to enjoy the sunshine from the southerly aspect. The rear gardens also benefit from well-manicured lawns in amongst a range of ornamental and mature shrubs and trees.

Everything has been designed to offer privacy in what feels like both a sanctuary and the perfect backdrop for entertaining, with our agent suggesting this would be a wonderful place for a wedding .

Garage and Parking

A large, private (shared) driveway, accessed from either Yarm Lane or Stokesley Road, leads to a choice of gravelled areas, one to the front of the house where your guests may wish to park and another to the rear, where there is also a double garage and block paving.
