Duxford Grange is a delightful country house built of brick under a slated roof which dates from around 1870. The house offers well proportioned accommodation with many features typical of the late Georgian/Victorian era extending to just over 5,008 sq ft (excluding the extensive cellars beneath much of the ground floor). The main drawing room has a deep bay to the south, a Jetmaster open fireplace with marble surround and built-in book shelving and features - in common with many of the rooms which include high ceilings with cornicing and double hung sash windows. The current owners have carried out various improvements over their period of ownership including, in recent times, the creation of a beautifully light and spacious open plan kitchen with dining and seating areas and wide bi-folding doors to a large outdoor terrace. The kitchen features a four oven Aga and a large island range together with a walk-in pantry. A cosy sitting room with wood burning stove, a study and family room complete the reception accommodation on the ground floor. Domestic offices include a large boot room/utility and a boiler room through which access is gained to the large cellars which are divided into a number of rooms and offer potential to create additional useable space such as home cinema or similar.
At first floor there are five bedrooms including a master with en suite bathroom and separate shower. The south facing bedrooms enjoy delightful distant views over rolling countryside and the bedroom at the western end has an adjacent shower room. A secondary staircase leads down to the family room.
Approached over a shingled driveway with electric remote controlled gates, the driveway leads to a parking area enclosed by yew hedging. Formal planting with Portuguese laurels leads to the boundary. To the rear of the house is a paved terrace and the walled garden which is laid mainly to lawn. To the east is a wooded area under planted with bulbs and a sheltered outdoor swimming pool with retractable safety cover, stone paved surround and a timber summer house. The wired hard tennis court is tucked around behind the walled garden beyond which is woodland. A separate access to the west leads to a further parking area set within mature trees, the detached garage building which has been partly converted to a gym/ office with single garage and staircase leading up to a loft storage area. The drive continues beyond this outbuilding and on to the independent Annexe which extends to 960 sq ft. This has independent heating, large spacious rooms and an area adjacent usable as private garden.
