Originally built in the 1930s by the Henman Family on the Dowager Duchess of Marlborough's land, The Grange represents a superlative example of the Art deco movement. Sat within a truly magnificent wrap around plot of just over half an acre, the property is characterised by its generous mid-century proportions and stylised lines.
Boasting a commanding position at the head of Cadogan Park, entry is gained via the long private driveway flanked by manicured lawns and mature trees. Once inside the central hallway, the voluminous scale of the property is immediately apparent as the eye follows the galleried staircase upwards towards the double height ceiling above. A set of dynamic living spaces flow through the ground floor and the large windows with elegant, curved ornamentation adorn the playful interiors in natural light. In the property’s current configuration, the generous reception room, intimate reading snug and sunroom can be found to the west side of the property and a sleek kitchen/dining room, conservatory, handy laundry room, office and two ground floor cloakrooms are located on the east. The first floor currently offers six double bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Externally, the current owners have thoughtfully re-designed the outside spaces to create a wonderful indoor-outdoor experience. Large expanses of carefully maintained lawns encompass the property and create a haven for local wildlife. Subtle lighting and multiple terraced areas have been carefully created with alfresco dinner parties, evening drinks, and peaceful early morning coffees in mind. Driveway parking is discreet and will accommodate several vehicles.
Whilst the current owners have carried out a number of refurbishments, there remains to the significant scope to expand upon and remodel the accommodation where required. Subject to obtaining relevant consents, the substantial plot offers an array of possibilities and would comfortably carry a much larger property.
