A GENEROUS, LONGSTANDING FAMILY HOME which is REMOTELY SET amidst the secluded grounds of the former Horstead Hall. Rebuilt in a Tudor style during the early nineteenth century by the then Baron of Suffield, as a wedding gift for his ill-fated son, Horstead Hall not only later entertained Prime Minister Lord Salisbury, but was also requisitioned during World War II by the War Office and used as a cipher unit.
Grange Farm House is located almost HALF A MILE FROM THE PASSING ROAD which runs parallel with the distant RIVER BURE and links the popular waterside villages of BUXTON and HORSTEAD. Passing through twin brick piers towards the roadside entrance, the property is approached along a partly made driveway bordered by OPEN FIELDS; passers-by could be forgiven for ever knowing the property existed.
Set amongst the once substantial parklands of an even earlier seventeenth century country house, the property SITS HANDSOMELY to the rear of a GENEROUS AND MATURE PLOT which extends to around HALF OF AN ACRE. A driveway, bordered by a high natural hedge and an ample SOUTH FACING LAWN GARDEN, with an accompanying enclosed VEGETABLE GARDEN, leads to a broad shingle expanse that provides for AMPLE OFF-ROAD PARKING to the front and side of the property.
With its HIGH CEILINGS and RETAINED FEATURES, this PERIOD PROPERTY enters into a formal entrance hallway, with separate doors leading to a CLOAK ROOM and a DINING ROOM with connecting doors to the kitchen and a BAY-FRONTED SITTING ROOM. From the entrance hallway a further door opens to a BREAKFAST ROOM and a SOCIABLE KITCHEN, with double doors opening to a CONSERVATORY that cleverly connects Grange Farm House to the rear ANNEXED STYLE ACCOMMODATION. To one side of the conservatory, further double doors open into an ENCLOSED COURTYARD that leads to an unconverted part of the building and which is presently used as a WORKSHOP. To the first-floor, separate doors open to a FAMILY BATHROOM, THREE BEDROOMS and a MASTER BEDROOM with FITTED WARDROBES and an EN-SUITE.
Grange Farm House is further complemented by its SECLUDED, RURAL SETTING, situated equidistantly less than two and half miles from the riverside villages of BUXTON; once home and now the resting place of Anna Sewell, author of Black Beauty, and HORSTEAD and COLTISHALL; known as the GATEWAY TO THE NORFOLK BROADS.
