Grange Farm House is an elegant Georgian Farmhouse providing scope and potential to improve/remodel, enjoying a splendid setting approached down a long private shared driveway, standing in delightful grounds of around 1 acre. Built in 1777 for the Thomas Gage family, the house provides spacious accommodation boasting fine proportions, complemented by original features including sash windows, exposed beams, quarry tiled and wooden flooring, panelled doors and an impressive arched stone doorway thought to have come from Hengrave Hall in the 18th century. The adjoining cottage/former rear wing (known as Grange Farm Annexe) is currently let. Originally part of the farmhouse (doorways now temporarily sealed), the annex could be altered to be included in the main house once again if desired and subject to listed building and planning permissions being approved by St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The accommodation for the house currently comprises: Stone steps to an elegant six panel entrance door with oblong fanlight above, opening to an entrance hall with original staircase to first floor and door leading to a rear hall with access to cellars, cloakrooms, laundry room and side porch with door to courtyard. Within the rear hall area is a doorway leading to the adjoining cottage (temporarily sealed). The sitting room is an elegant reception with generous ceiling height, fireplace, sash window to front, and French doors to the side and gardens. A farmhouse kitchen has a sash window to front and a range of fitted units and built in appliances.

First Floor Accommodation
On the first floor are three large bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family shower room. On the second floor is a landing and two further attic bedrooms. The adjoining cottage accommodation includes a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility and ground floor bedroom area. On the first floor are two comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom.


Outside
The house enjoys a splendid approach along a sweeping gravel driveway. To the front of the house are walled gardens mostly laid to lawn. To the side of the house is a large area of mature garden stocked with an abundance of trees, shrubs and flowering plants. To the rear of this is a further area of meadow and to the side of the house is a courtyard area with range of outbuildings.


Situation
Grange Farm House occupies a delightful setting, set back from the road down a long shared private driveway whilst situated in the heart of the village. Hengrave is a historic rural village in Suffolk best known for its magnificent Hengrave Hall, and is located approximately four miles from the sought after market town of Bury St Edmunds which provides all local amenities, public houses, the Arc shopping centre, well-known abbey ruins and cathedral and well regarded schools for all ages.


Directions
From the direction of Bury St Edmunds, proceed along the A1101 towards Mildenhall. At Fornham All Saints, proceed straight across the double roundabout and follow the road into Hengrave. The entrance to Grange Farm will be found further on the right, after the entrance to Hengrave Hall on the left.
