Magnificent ten bedroom period Country House, with stone barn/outbuildings for potential development, three bedroom cottage, two bedroom annexe apartment, in excess of 20 acres of formal gardens and paddocks, equestrian facilities and 20 stables.
West Grange is a stunning stone built detached house, dating from the late 1800’s and formerly part of the beautiful Wallington Estate and utilised by the RAF during the Second World War. The house, which has been lovingly restored and sympathetically refurbished over the last three years, is predominantly south facing, with beautiful open aspect views over the grounds and mature woodland.
The house has a wealth of character including fabulous high ceilings, oak floors, sash and case windows with working shutters and solid mahogany doors with individually carved architraves and beading. All of the reception rooms have large open fireplaces. The impressive reception hallway forms the heart of the house, with doors leading to all the reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room. The formal dining room and drawing room are excellent entertaining rooms of generous proportions, with feature marble fireplaces and bay windows. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen which leads to a utility room, larder and pantry. There is also a boot room and cloakroom.
