The property is well set back from Windermere Way behind an impressive secure entrance featuring electric wrought iron double gates and an accompanying side entrance for pedestrians. The gates give way to large, secluded grounds featuring a sweeping block paved driveway leading to the property.

The driveway affords parking for many vehicles including motorhomes, caravans and the like.

From the driveway, a winding block paved pathway takes you to the front door of the property and the glazed porch beyond.

The porch provides access to a large garden room extension situated at the front of the cottage and the dining room/reception hall.

Garden room
The glass-roofed garden room is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun whilst taking in views of the surrounding gardens.

Reception room
Once inside the property, you are greeted by a hugely impressive reception space, which is incredibly flexible and could be used for dining or as a living/family room. This extensive space is packed with a wealth of character including a delightful spiral staircase to one corner, an array of exposed timbers and a brick fireplace housing a wood-burning stove.

Doors radiate beautifully from this central ground floor room leading to the living room, kitchen, and garden room, and to the downstairs bedroom and accompanying bathroom.

Living room
The main living room is another incredibly spacious room, once again, packed with charming character detail including exposed timber and a feature fireplace housing a wood burner.

This room floods with natural light from the dual-aspect windows and skylight.

There is a nicely appointed kitchen featuring matching wall and base cupboards incorporating glass-fronted display cabinets. The kitchen includes a fantastic, moveable solid wood central island unit, a Range style oven housed within a useful recess and work surfaces incorporating an inset ceramic sink.

There are also exposed timbers, tiled flooring, down lighters and a door leading out to the enclosed rear gardens.

Ground floor bedroom
Neatly tucked away in a quiet corner of the downstairs is a spacious double bedroom, which is serviced by a large bathroom situated across the hallway.

Ground floor bathroom
The bathroom is nicely styled and comprises tiled floors and walls, a large corner shower cubicle, a vanity unit, a low-level WC and downlighters. A roll-top bath was also previously situated in this room and can be reinstated if required.

First floor
The first-floor accommodation is similarly adaptable and versatile and can provide two or three bedrooms depending on requirements and comes complete with a bathroom and ensuite.

Bedroom two
The largest of the bedrooms is ideal for use as a master bedroom, being a spacious and light double bedroom featuring exposed timbers, an attractive cast iron fireplace and French doors leading out to the balcony.

Bedrooms three and four
The remaining two bedrooms are interconnected, with the larger of these including exposed beams, down lighters and a Velux skylight.

The third bedroom leads on from here and features exposed beams, a skylight and a side window plus a door leading to an ensuite bathroom comprising a low-level WC, a washbasin and a bathtub.

Family shower room
Completing the accommodation is the main family shower room, which has a tiled shower cubicle, a low-level WC and a pedestal washbasin.

The large grounds of Grange Cottage are a real asset, totalling around 0.2 acres and completely enclosed and secure, ideal for those with animals and children. The gardens wrap around the cottage on several sides and are all very user-friendly. To the front of the property are several lawned sections featuring a large, paved patio beyond ideal for a seating and entertaining area leading to the adjoining summerhouse. The spacious summerhouse currently houses a sunken hot tub and could be used for a variety of different purposes, including home working or studio space.

Situated at the rear of the property is another generous section of garden, which is private and designed for low maintenance being laid to paving and gravel, with a circular seating area at the centre. This area of the garden is ideal for alfresco dining and features a door leading out from the kitchen. Several outbuildings are accessed from this part of the garden, including a garage with an adjoining workshop and storage room. There is also an outside store room/boiler room and an outside/gardener’s WC, both of which are located to the side of the house.

The property has mains gas, mains electricity, mains water, mains drainage, a security alarm system and broadband.
