Set in a delightful rural valley in wooded countryside, La Grange is a delightful, comfortable 18th Century Coach House (to the neighbouring Chateau) which has been lovingly restored to an exceptionally high standard giving space and complete seclusion with the Wow factor as soon as you drive through the gated drive. Although retaining many of the original features, including exposed beams and stonework with large fireplaces and wood burning stoves, every modern convenience has been thought of. The huge Baronial style entrance hall with its atrium and antique furniture sites the splendid oak dining table. The private fenced and heated swimming pool is close to the house whilst the meadow at the back of the house is perfect for a kick around with a football.
