About the property

The Grange is a substantial detached property built we believe in the early 1900s. The current owners purchased in 2003 and have made many substantial improvements whilst retaining the character of the house. Recent professionally repainted exterior. Today it offers a bright spacious and comfortable family home in the heart of sought after coastal Charmouth.
Originally thatched, the thatch was removed and made a flat roof with concrete, then a full roof was put back - therefore a loft conversion stpp would already have a very solid ready floor in place .

Ground Floor: The front door leads into a spacious hall with stairs to one side and under-stair storage, a ground floor WC and a double glazed door to the garden. A bright double aspect Living Room spans the house from front to back and features a wood burner. The house benefits from a Second Reception room; also double aspect and featuring a stone fireplace with second wood burning stove (currently utilised for business as a sewing studio). A rear extension provides an open, social Kitchen Diner with views to different aspects of the garden, which can be accessed the the large sliding patio doors. The space is flooded with natural light from the sliding doors and the further three windows. The Howdens shaker style oak kitchen was fitted 3 years ago and is arranged with a long peninsular, housing the washing machine and tumble dryer, dividing the space for kitchen and dining with space for a freestanding electric cooker and large American-style fridge Freezer.

First Floor: Linear landing with loft hatch to loft space & concertina drop down ladder. The loft is very spacious with good head height with a 12" solid concrete floor from historic flat roof! Suitable for conversion subject to planning permission. Double aspect Master bedroom to front - this is a delightful very generous double room. Second double bedroom with integral walk in wardrobe over the stairs. Third double bedroom to the end with front & rear window overlooking the gardens & views to the hills over Stonebarrow Cliff.
The large period style bathroom has a slipper bath and hand-basin, together with a very large walk in inset shower with mains thermostatic valve. Airing cupboard housing Alpha gas combi boiler. Separate WC adjacent. All the upstairs rooms have exposed stripped floorboards giving a country/coastal vibe.
Outside: A  tall timber side gate  provides pedestrian access into the  south facing garden. Paved patio leading around to the patio doors to a raised terraced sun trap to enjoy al fresco meals. The garden extends around the house to the other side with a raised lawn area & small shed.
 To the side is a well built large timber outbuilding which has good insulation light and power.  Parking area for up to two cars to rear accessed via private bar gate. The garden are enclosed by walling and is safe for both children and pets.
