Harome Grange

Harome Grange has a history that dates back more than 200 years and its original roof trusses and great ancient timbers have been beautifully restored. The old wheelhouse is now a spectacular kitchen/breakfast room that echoes the original design providing panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling picture windows, each with a window seat. This palatial room rises into the high vaulted ceiling providing light-filled space for family dining and living, with underfloor heating beneath travertine tiles. The modern fitted country kitchen has an island unit with breakfast bar, granite worktops and integrated appliances. Adjacent lies a dual aspect sitting room which extends 46 ft and has a central bespoke turning staircase, underfloor heating beneath engineered floorboards, and a modern inglenook fireplace with a large wood-burning stove on the eastern wall. This versatile room offers plenty of space for family living and entertaining, and the sitting area has a glazed door to the garden terrace. The separate dining room features a magnificent beamed ceiling, exposed stonework and windows north and south, providing fine open views. A door on the western wall opens to the glorious old barn, currently under renovation, which offers dramatic double-height space as a workshop or studio and has stone steps rising to the first floor principal bedroom. A front door opens to a central hallway between the house and cottage creating scope to unify the two parts into a single residence.

The first floor bedrooms and bathrooms are accessed from the landing and have abundant character with beautiful old timbers exposed on the high vaulted ceilings. The superb principal bedroom suite enjoys glorious far-reaching views both north and south, and has a stylish en suite shower room. The guest bedroom suite has a shower room and a juliette balcony that enjoys morning sunshine, and two further double bedrooms are served by a contemporary house bathroom with high specification fittings.

Grange Cottage

The single storey stone cottage was sympathetically converted from a cow barn dating from the 1890s and finished to an exacting standard in 2018, highlighting space and light with vaulted ceilings in every room. Heritage-barn features are evident throughout including exposed roof trusses and brickwork, mellow old lintels, sturdy beams and wide cottage doors with ironmongery. The cottage is connected but entirely independent from the main house with a stable door at the front that opens into a stone-flagged hallway. There are two reception rooms; the snug with a glazed south facing door opens to a small patio, and the sitting room with a wood-burning stove in a traditional fireplace has west facing windows. The kitchen breakfast room is a light and airy family space, double aspect with a floor-to-ceiling window, a door opening onto the drive and ample room for a dining table. The fitted kitchen has integrated appliances, granite work surfaces and a butler sink underneath a south-facing window. There are three double bedrooms; the principal bedroom suite has a shower room and the two other double bedrooms are served by a house bathroom.

The cottage has its own enclosed garden, which is laid to grass, bounded by post and rail fencing and accessed through a garden gate; the views south are superb. Adjacent is the car park, a generous space which provides parking for multiple vehicles.


A private gravel drive passes through stone pillars along an avenue of trees, heading to the cottage car park adjacent to Grange Cottage. It continues past the agricultural sheds to the main parking area for Harome Grange at the rear of the property. Here is a turning area and ample parking for multiple vehicles. The principal garden is predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed by well-established mixed hedging with scattered birch and willow trees. Beyond the garden, the view reaches as far as the eye can see encompassing fields, woodland and moorland. A paved patio area outside the stable door and a gravelled area near the house both provide sheltered spots for sitting out.

There are two general purpose, steel-framed barns on the eastern boundary alongside hardstanding and the small field. Between them they total more than 4700 sq ft and offer huge scope for storage as well as a variety of business opportunities.
