The Grange

Frithsden, Herts

The Grange was constructed to exacting standards by Frithsden Construction, with fine attention to detail throughout. This award-winning property combines traditional craftsmanship with contemporary styling and advanced technology. The imposing elevations in mellow brickwork, with stone mullioned leaded light windows beneath clay tiled roof slopes create an impressive main facade. To the rear of the property is a striking two and a half storey oak and glass atrium, which creates a stunning dining/seating area at the rear of the reception hall.

From the reception hall, double doors open into the elegant drawing room, which features a central archway and polished cast iron fireplace. On the other side of the hall is the beautifully presented kitchen/breakfast room, by Underwoods of Knightsbridge, that incorporates all modern appliances, including a Falcon cream coloured range cooker, within classically styled cabinets and with granite work surfaces. An octagonal roof light is positioned above the breakfast area.
From the hall, the imposing solid oak staircase rises to the galleried first floor landing, off which are three bedrooms, the master bedroom having an anti room and balcony at the rear, overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. The en-suite bathroom is beautifully appointed. There is an en-suite guest bedroom as well as three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. From the first floor landing, an equally impressive staircase splits and continues to the second floor where there is a further landing, two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

The house stands well back from the road behind a beech hedge, within level gardens which extend to about 1.5 acres. A driveway leads through an electronically operated five bar gate terminating in a large parking area in front of the house. There is a detached outbuilding/store housing a state of the art biomass woodchip boiler with stained shiplap boarding and clay tiled roof. The large front garden is lawned, with an attractive stand of silver birch trees to one side. There is a large area of garden at the side of the house and the rear garden, which is also predominately lawned. There is a large patio which is accessed from the kitchen and drawing room.

The Grange is privately situated, screened by mature trees and shrubs around the boundaries. The eastern boundary runs alongside a bridle path, which gives access to the footpaths and bridleways which crisscross the 4,000 acres of beech woodland, common land and down land, which comprise the Ashridge Estate.
