The Grange is a fine, 17th Century village house standing in beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds approaching one acre. The house dates from 1684 as noted on the plaque set into the front of the house along with the initials W.F. which relate to William Foster – a former owner. Its 24” walls are constructed of local sandstone, and the second floor added in 1891 is of brick.
Over the last few years the current owners have undertaken a significant renovation of the property with outstanding results. The house offers a practical layout with generously proportioned rooms and an overall floor area in excess of 2,400ft2. Much of the character has been retained and has been further enhanced by the addition of an oak-framed garden room at the rear, which takes full advantage of the stunning gardens and grounds.
In brief, the accommodation comprises: entrance hall, 24ft drawing room, garden room, dining room, farmhouse kitchen with AGA, office, utility room and ground floor shower room, whilst upstairs there are four double bedrooms and a house bathroom. Central heating is gas-fired and windows are double-glazed and mostly Yorkshire sliding sashes.
The gardens at The Grange are an absolute delight, providing year-round colour and interest. Extending to approximately 0.9 acres, they have been divided into a series of formal and informal areas and perfectly complement the property. They feature well manicured lawns, well-stocked borders stocked with a variety of flowering shrubs and perennials and a number of trees. There is ample parking on the gravelled drive, which runs alongside a useful range of brick outbuildings, which offer potential for conversion to form a holiday let or annexe, subject to securing any necessary consents.
Gristhorpe is a conveniently placed village located only 2 miles from the nearby coastal town of Filey. The Main Street is a no-through road and designated Conservation Area, presenting a very attractive street scene. Good local facilities can be found in both Filey and Scarborough, which is some 6 miles north. The A64 is within easy reach for commuting further afield. For anyone keen on walking, there are several footpaths and bridleways that pass through the village.
