Grove House is a substantial house that also benefits from an adjoining cottage which could be incorporated into the main house via previously blocked up doors.
The property is thought to be pre- Georgian and is mentioned by Pevsner. It has many interesting features including an impressive entrance hall with attractive tiled floor and elegant staircase leading to a galleried landing. It benefits from high ceilings, sash windows, oak floorboards and a large mature garden with a rear parking area for several cars and a coach house in the courtyard area accessed from both front and rear of the house.
This current owner has been in this house for almost 30 years. The roof has been attended to last year and the boiler is approx 18months old, but the property is in need of some refurbishment. There is plenty of scope to incorporate the annexe cottage into the main house and there is potential to make part of the cottage into a large kitchen. The coach house (ex chauffeurs house ) has an old fireplace, stone floors and has planning permission (2016) to convert it to a home office/studio.
The main house comprises of 2 large reception rooms, 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and kitchen. The attached cottage has 2 reception rooms, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and bathroom. There is also a detached coach house in need of some repair.
To the rear of the house is a courtyard containing the coach house, plus a pretty and large garden with mature trees and shrubs and a rear access parking area. To the front of the house is a small garden with mature shrubs enclosed within attractive railings and this leads to impressive front door.
