Originally constructed in 1797, as seen on the marriage stone of the original building when you drive through the private gated entrance, Whitton Grange is now a stunning family home of peace and privacy. In 2016 the property underwent complete renovation, major work that has seen changes to its layout as well as the enlargement and modernisation of accommodation.
Also included was the beautifully finished second-generation barn conversion with 2 en suite bedrooms, (perfect for younger/older family members looking for privacy/separation and independence from family). The main house now consisting of 5 en suite bedrooms is linked to the barn by a new, striking and contrasting granite ‘link' designed by the well-known architect, television presenter, lecturer and writer, George Clarke.
The impressive link also leads to a brand new indoor 14m swimming pool with a retractable cover which insulates the pool water allowing for the room air temperature to be lowered without causing condensation and therefore saving energy needed for pool room air handling and pool water heating. The air-handling unit also recovers any excess hot air and recycles it as opposed to venting it outside creating greater energy savings. There is underfloor heating throughout the whole pool room.
The main house has a vast reception room with exposed original Jersey granite walls. A large, new Mackintosh kitchen with a fabulous range of Miele appliances; including 2 x dishwashers, 1 Microwave Combi, 2 x warming drawers, 1 Steam Oven, 1 Wine Fridge, an induction range cooker and large American fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens onto a large private terrace, lawn and beautifully maintained gardens with view across the apple orchid fields.
The dining room with a beautiful exposed granite fireplace easily fits a large dining table. The large living room features a wood burning stove with more exposed original jersey granite work. Back across the reception hall there is a downstairs WC. There is also a wonderful library/cinema room fitted with bespoke book shelves, large wall-mounted cinema screen and fitted Bose projector and surround sound system. The whole house TV system is Sky/Sky Q and Apple TV ready.
On the second floor there are four large bedrooms, all en suite. On the third floor there is a fifth en suite bedroom. All bathrooms and toilets are fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. All the interior flooring is engineered wood flooring, wool carpets or natural stone. All interior and exterior doors are solid wood.
Through the Link and into the new barn conversion there is a staff toilet, large utility room and shower/wash down room for sandy/dirty clothing/pets with two Miele washing machines and tumbles driers. The barn is open plan with Mackintosh kitchen, Miele fridge/freezer, microwave combi, oven, hob, and dishwasher. Enough space for a 6-seater dining table and the lounge area has a wood-burning stove. Upstairs there are two large en suite bedrooms. This second-generation home can be independently used with the only shared facilities with the main house being the utility room. The barn even has its own naturally segregated back garden area.
The whole of the bottom floor of the house and barn are fitted with in-roof speaker system, which is Sonos ready. A Building Management System on the first floor of the workshop controls House and barn heating, and hot water. Apart from the tremendous amount of work undertaken on the house, the gardens and grounds have also been transformed to feature parking for over 6 cars in front of the triple garage, sweeping lawns connected by central steps and within the north-western end of Whitton Grange Orchard there are some dessert apple, pear, plum and nut trees planted by the current owners for their own consumption.
The property has fire and burglar alarm system so it can easily be insured. It is fitted with Radon Sumps in accordance with building control. The property is not listed; it lies within the Green Zone, Primary Route Network and Water Pollution Safeguard Area.
