Moor Road, Yatton - Grade II listed family home

Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
Believed to date from 1760, with historical connections to cider production, and coming to the market for the first time in 24 years, The Grange is a unique Grade II listed family home providing substantial, well balanced accommodation over 4 floors.

Arriving via the wooden gated driveway one is struck by the pleasing symmetry and charm of the stone-built property, with 12-pane sash windows and chimneys to either gable. Upon entry via the porch into the hallway, the elegant period staircase and flagstone floor give a further nod to the character features within.

The 2 reception rooms sit at the front of the house, each of generous proportions, with tall 12-pane sash windows with seating areas and working shutters. The sitting room to the left has a wide stone fireplace inset with a wood burner, and a flagstone floor under the carpet. The second reception room with exposed wooden floors is currently used as a family room but could also make an impressive formal dining room.

To the end of the hallway a part-glazed door opens into the boot room/lobby from where a stable door provides access to the outbuilding, the sheltered courtyard and gardens beyond. To the left is a good sized utility room, beyond which is the pantry. Stone steps from the utility room lead down to the huge vaulted cellar with flagstone floor, which not only provides generous storage but could be used as a games or play room. The cellar was previously used to store barrels of cider, and there is additional external access to the side of the house, where the barrels would be rolled in and out of the building.

The very spacious, light and airy kitchen/dining room is another highlight of the property, with a neatly tiled floor, Aga and a wood burner giving a real sense of country charm, plus useful access via a part-glazed door onto the charming enclosed courtyard garden. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of wall and base units, with a 2-oven oil-fired Aga and a Miele oven with Bosch ceramic hob for summer use. The dining area accommodates a large table, ideal for family dining and entertaining, and a latched door opens into the cloakroom beyond.

The first floor bedroom accommodation is well balanced, with the 3 double bedrooms overlooking the front all having 12-pane sash windows, and 2 have latched cupboards. The spacious dual aspect principal bedroom sits to the rear of the property, with an ensuite shower room, and there are 2 further bedrooms plus a family shower room.

Another highlight of The Grange is the huge attic room/office, accessed by a staircase via a latched wooden door from the first floor landing. This impressive space is fully boarded and in years gone by served as a dormitory for the apple pickers during the 2-week harvest period. The room now provides a snooker/games room in addition to extensive office space, cosily heated by the wood burner and windows to either end give wonderful birds eye views.

Outside - beyond the boot room/utility lobby is a charming courtyard garden with external cellar access to one corner. Not only is this an attractive, sheltered place for alfresco dining and relaxing, but there are also 2 outbuildings plus a log store which subject to the necessary permissions, offer potential to create a studio, workshop or additional office to work from home.

From the courtyard garden a path leads past a garden shed to a garden, mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by beech hedging with some trees and bushes, that provides somewhere to play or simply sit and enjoy the surroundings.

The path continues to the double garage, with 2 separate wooden doors and useful overhead rafter storage, and back round to the front garden. Enclosed by laurel hedges and stone walls, there is a wide lawn to one side and generous parking to the other. Currently designed for low maintenance, but with plenty of potential for the keen gardener, there are some mature trees, shrubs and bushes and a greenhouse.
