Rutland Grange has ample character with exposed brickwork and ceiling beams on both floors, some of which have been retained from the original period farm building. It is adjoined to neighbouring properties of comparable value. At the heart of the house, the kitchen/breakfast room has underfloor heating beneath a tiled floor and is double aspect, connecting to the paved courtyard through a pair of south facing French doors. The hand-painted Smallbones kitchen has an island unit with breakfast bar, granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, a Britannia stove range cooker and double butler sink below a garden window. On the eastern wing of the property are the open plan dining and sitting rooms extending to some 33 ft with an engineered oak floor, exposed roof trusses and wood-burning stove.
Two bedroom suites are situated on the ground floor. Both equipped with fitted wardrobes and the larger of the two enjoys morning sunshine through the wooden louvre shutters and French doors that open onto the secure courtyard. Alongside is the generous bathroom with a freestanding slipper bath tub, vanity unit and contemporary walk-in cubicle with rainfall shower. The second suite has garden views, a fitted dressing room and a bathroom with corner shower. The hand-painted turning staircase on the western end of the kitchen/breakfast room ascends to the first floor, passing a dramatic oversized barn-style window to the landing with two storage cupboards. The two double bedrooms both have louvre shutters on their windows and ceilings that rise into the roof space revealing exposed beams. The large house bathroom has a freestanding roll-top bath, a new and never-used corner shower unit and a newly fitted skylight.
The private but shared tarmacadamed drive is approximately one third of a mile long and provides access to three high value properties, one of which is Rutland Grange. Rutland Grange owns the latter part of the drive extending to the gates of neighbouring Field House and to the smart new oak gates of Rutland Grange which open to an enclosed gravelled driveway with parking space for six cars and a double garage with power, light and electric doors. The bulk of the land lies to the east of the house following the curve of the A19 and culminating at the beck on the southern boundary. There are two big fields enclosed by hedging and post and rail fencing, woodland, an orchard and an enclosed paddock alongside the house and drive. A band of well-established trees encircles much of the paddock and provides a welcome screen giving both privacy and shelter. In front of the house, a circular patio has recently been laid enjoying a west facing position and creating an ideal spot for al fresco dining and barbeques. The enclosed garden is walled to one side and comprises a large expanse of manicured lawn edged with herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees. At the rear of the house is a sunny courtyard accessed from the kitchen breakfast room.
