Exquisitely curated to blend period charm with contemporary luxury, Grange House sits encompassed by the statuesque trees and leafy foliage of its wonderfully large idyllic garden and carriage driveway in a in prized cul de sac leading directly to Horsell Common. Impeccably designed with a refined attention to detail, a commendably fluid layout with vaulted ceilings, original fireplaces and refined heritage hues generates an enviable sense of style and space. Stretching out over three outstanding stories, its trio of exemplary reception rooms, spacious kitchen/dining room and six double bedrooms combine with sumptuous bathrooms and integral garaging to proffer a superior modern day family home.
Conjuring a wealth of grace and elegance, from the moment you step into the magnificent entrance hall you'll instantly understand just what makes this Horsell home so special. Its rich herringbone floor is beautifully pared with the warmth of a heritage yellow palette, and dado rails and cornicing lend a classic crisp white contrast. The notable dimensions hint at the space within and while French doors supply convenient side access to the garden the versatility of the ground floor unfolds around you.
Filled with natural light and arranged to allow the tranquillity of the garden to add a blissful backdrop, three exceptional reception rooms have ample flexibility to cater to your needs. The herringbone floor runs cohesively underfoot and the stunning sitting room and separate study of this marvellous trio of rooms retain an abundance of original character. French doors within the tall bay windows of the large study give you every excuse to step out into the afternoon sun and the feature detailing of a panelled ceiling stretches above the seriously sultry dark grey sitting room where discerningly crafted bookcases nestle to either side of the working fire.
Delineated by double doors that give you the option of creating one expansive free flowing space when needed, it is perhaps the combination of the kitchen/dining room and double aspect living room that creates the heart and hub of the house. Accessed via the kitchen/dining room the exceptional living room prompts an instant wow factor with its high vaulted ceiling and majestic apex windows. Light tumbles in from a trio of skylights looking out onto the treetops and a fabulous contemporary inset fireplace lends a deluxe focal point to a pared-back aesthetic. French doors connect with the patio encouraging daily life to filter outside and the admirable dimensions supply ample opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends.
Reaching out over a tremendous 32ft, the kitchen/dining room is equally suited for evenings spent entertaining, celebrating key moments or simply catching up on the day's events while you cook. Sympathetically styled with Shaker cabinetry topped with stainless steel and traditional countertops, its prodigious footprint accommodates both breakfast and dining tables along with dressers and seating. Further French doors open onto the attractive frontage, a deep pantry cupboard is an added bonus and a fitted utility room keeps laundry appliances hidden from view. A ground floor cloakroom has been cleverly incorporated and sits discreetly behind the living room where an inner hallway gives easy yet secure access to the integral garaging.
Gently illuminated from above, the turning staircase reminds you of this home's history and heritage enticing you upstairs where six double bedrooms pepper the upper two storeys and continue the superb blend of contemporary and period design. With garden vistas from its bay windows and delicately patterned walls, the soothing principal bedroom offers a hugely restful oasis at the end of the day. The vibrant tiles of a picture perfect period fireplace lend a dash of colour and a separate dressing room has a wealth of storage. A superior en suite echoes its charm with a central roll top bath and a first class walk-in waterfall shower.
Two further bedrooms have en suite shower rooms and two equally impressive large bedrooms on the top floor sit to either side of their own bathroom. However, it is undoubtedly the breathtaking family bathroom on the first floor that proffers a simply stunning finishing touch with a spa-like suite that sees a decadently luxurious freestanding slipper bath atop a raised platform and an oversized waterfall shower sitting sleekly behind a glass partition.
Step out from any number of French doors and you'll find yourself immersed in the greenery of idyllic gardens with a coveted measure of privacy and seclusion. Bordered by high hedgerows, to the front of the house a carriage driveway sweeps past statuesque trees and combines with the integral garaging to provide a substantial quota of off-road parking. With its canopied entrance and red brick and tile hung facade, the house prompts an inviting first impression and raised beds with mature shrubs aside the kitchen could be a great place for home grown herbs.
To the rear a broad paved patio beneath the vines of established Wisteria provides a heavenly spot for al fresco entertaining or afternoon siestas in the summer sun while children play on a considerable lawn framed by the evergreen foliage of hedging and trees.
