Property description

Lavendon Grange was built on the site of an old Abbey in 1626 and is believed to have been constructed using material from that building. The Grange was altered in 1722, extended in 1911 and was converted into four
separate properties in the early 1980s.

The South Wing consists of part of the original southern elevation of the house with approximately 4,993 sq. Ft. Of accommodation arranged over three floors. This interesting dwelling retains many period features including fireplaces and windows with bench seating and shutters. These features have been successfully combined with the modern amenities installed throughout in the kitchen and bathrooms.

The grounds extend to some 1.5 acres with the formal gardens being entirely self contained. There is ample off road parking, a double garage with storage above and much much more.

Second Floor

The second floor is extremely flexible in usage and could easily form a self contained apartment. Currently laid out as a sitting room with a cloakroom, bathroom and two large bedrooms{ one formerly having been used by those in service, the original bell still remaining}. Access to this area is over a large landing which could quite simply convert into a kitchen to complete what would be a stunning apartment.

Within the grounds stands a brick built potting shed which has the potential to be converted to a home office. The formal garden is walled and fenced in its entirety and overlooks open countryside.

Agents Notes

The nearby town of Olney is a very desirable market town with a wide high street lined either side by many Georgian and Period buildings. There are first, middle and secondary schools in the town whilst Bedford only some 11 miles distant boasts some of the best private schooling available through the Harpur trust schools. Main line rail providing connections to London and the North is no more than a 25 minute drive departing from either Bedford on the St Pancras line or from Milton Keynes with its southern terminal at Euston. The M1 motorway has access at Junction 14 for Southbound travel or Junction 15 for a Northbound journey. Both Junctions are within a few minutes drive of Lavendon Grange.
