On the southern slope of the Polden Hills you will find The Grange, a manor with a rich history and a beautiful private garden.
Clad in local Lias stone under a roof of Roman clay tiles, Grange offers a fantastic opportunity to own a four-bedroom family home in the village of Stawell, a highly coveted part of the West Country.
It is currently being sold through Knight Frank for an estimated price of £900,000.
Built in the 13th century, this property was originally part of a large former manor house that was split in two in the mid 20th century.
There are no adjoining walls, however, and the property, which boasts a living area of around 2,800 sq. Feet, available without further chain.
Inside, the house retains many architectural features, such as stone slab floors, diamond-paneled lead lamps, ceiling beams, and window sill fireplaces and stone fireplaces.
The heart of the house is probably the huge living room with exposed beams, stone floors and a huge open fire, but there is also a rustic kitchen with a dining area. However, the real attraction here is the medieval character: many of the doorways are even shaped like gothic arches – nice to look at, though we imagine the taller occupants of the house will need to make sure they go right through the center!
Outside, the property stretches nearly an acre and includes several outdoor recreational areas, one of which has a background waterfall.
The property is located in the small village of Stawell. In the vicinity you will find all the usual amenities – a post office, several pubs, a convenience store, a general practitioner’s office and a garage.
The street and Bridgewater are not too far away offering more shops, restaurants and pubs. You will also find a railway station at Bridgewater which serves the Bristol Taunton line and trains from Castle Cary link to London Paddington.
The area also has excellent schools – both public and independent – such as Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, King’s and King’s Colleges Taunton.
The Grange is currently on sale through Knight Frank for an estimated £900,000 – see more photos or ask an agent for more information.
