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.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The administration fee levels are as follows:

an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat
all agreed offers over £1,000,000 will be £3,000 inclusive of vat

The administration fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the administration fee retained.

Once the administration fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all administration fees outlined above.
