The principal house dates back to 1904 and has been sensitively extended to create a spacious four bedroom family home. Living space includes a sitting room, kitchen, dining room and a bright reception room with wood-burning stove.

Grange Barn, Offcote, Ashbourne

There are three bedrooms, all with en suite facilities.
Though the house has been maintained to the highest standards by the current owners, the property’s north wing remains undeveloped and offers an excellent opportunity to create ancillary living space or, as per the planning permission, an indoor swimming pool with additional bedrooms and a self-contained apartment.
An ideal home for those with an interest in country pursuits, the house is surrounded by gardens and grounds including a courtyard and paddock extending to around five acres in total. Planning permission has been granted for garaging, stabling and a tack room, and the property is approached via a long driveway.
