16 Grove Place is an attractive period house, originally thought to be the grooms house and hay barn for the Rockingham Estate. Extended in the 1970’s and again more recently, it has carefully been extensively refurbished and extended by the current owners whilst retaining and adding to much of the original detail and character of the property. The house has an interesting layout having had the original stables incorporated into the accommodation.
Currently presented as a delightful family home it offers flexible living space which is arranged over the ground and first floors and could be restructured to present annexe potential, subject to the necessary consents.
* In 2014 a 2 storey extension was added to create the garden room and master bedroom with en suite
* 3 further double bedrooms plus a dining room or 5th bedroom
* Large kitchen with unusual high paneled ceiling,
reconditioned AGA, original built-in pine larder cupboard and separate utility room
* 3 excellent reception rooms including the family room with vaulted ceiling and access to Hayloft as well as the light and bright drawing room overlooking the garden
The property is approached via a no-through road leading to a private gravelled area to the right and tarmac frontage to the large garage which provides parking for 3 cars. There is an attractive traditional brick and glass garden/potting shed and wood store on the gravelled area. The garden which wraps itself around the house is attractively arranged with paved seating areas, lawn and well stocked beds, and has been thoughtfully divided into separate spaces offering a variety of uses. It is enclosed by brick walls and wooden panel fencing making it both private and secure.
