THE GRANGE, GREENGATES ROAD, EAST DRAYTON, RETFORD, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE DN22 0LD

DESCRIPTION
The Grange is a substantial period residence with coach house and grounds extending to approximately 7.70 acres. The property has been lovingly cared for and enhanced by the sellers for a number of years. It now successfully combines period attributes with contemporary accents and improvements for modern family life.

The accommodation commences with a fine entrance vestibule opening to generous reception hall with primary staircase ascending to galleried landing over and a good cloakroom with wc to the rear. There is a formal drawing room with excellent south facing bay, a cosy snug and dining room permitting entertaining. A useful study is also provided. The breakfasting kitchen has a range of country ivory units, granite working surfaces and Rayburn range. Ancillary accommodation includes laundry room, well appointed panty, walk in cloakroom / store and cellar.

At first floor level the principle bedrooms radiate around the central galleried landing. The master bedroom has a well appointed en-suite and the guest bedroom also has a most generous and well appointed en-suite shower room. The split level house bathroom is also within this area. The rear landing hosts two further bedrooms and has the back staircase returning to the groundfloor.

A particular feature is the original coach house which has been upgraded yet retains character attributes. In our opinion this is suitable for a variety of purposes ancillary to the enjoyment of The Grange perhaps including studio, annexe living arrangements, homeworking, gymnasium etc, subject to all statutory consents and approvals. The present accommodation is over two floors featuring an entrance hall, sitting room, dining kitchen, ground floor cloakroom with wc and bedroom / studio over.

A sweeping gravelled driveway leads round to the rear of the property providing excellent vehicle distribution around the grounds and terminating at the double garage and stable block. The stable block includes 2.5 loose boxes, tack room, adjacent hay barn and rear piggeries.

The grounds are superb with formal mature gardens extending to the south, perfect for alfresco entertaining. There are additional garden features including natural pond and wildlife area, former kitchen garden and orchard.

The paddocks lie immediately adjacent interlinked by good gateways with an additional gateway onto the Stokeham / Drayton road.

Retained character attributes include high ceilings, deep skirting boards, period fireplaces, retained sash windows. These combine with an improved specification to include mostly bespoke double glazing to sash windows, oil fired central heating, fitted intruder alarm, appliances to kitchen and modern bathrooms.
