1 The Grange, PangbourneAbout this home
1 The Grange is a stunning period house, located on one of Pangbourne’s most sought after roads. Originally built in 1895 for the Greek entrepreneur Andreas Koutsabeloulis, the property was split into three parts in the mid 1900’s with No 1 retaining the original and grand front of the property.
A Victorian House built in the middle of the Arts and Crafts movement, 1 The Grange is a magnificent period house with many attractive and stand out features. There is a real sense of arrival, with a grand front door, complete with a domed hood and a stunning lead lined half-moon window above, which opens up into a wood panelled entrance hall that is simply magnificent. Being the original front of the house, it was designed to impress guests, and the effect is as apparent today as it would have been at the turn of the last Century.
The substantial drawing room is another highlight, which retains its original wood panelled walls, stunning floorboards and ornate period fireplace. This room is bathed in morning sunlight through the large bay, stone mullioned window.
Whilst awash with characterful period features, the property has been maintained to a high standard and is ideally suited for modern living and includes a beautiful hard wood kitchen by Neptune. There is a large and useful lower ground floor, which is currently used for laundry, storage and workshop space, but has the potential to be converted for other uses.
The five bedrooms all retain lovely period features including original fireplaces and door furniture. Currently, the fifth bedroom is used as a study.
The garden is private, immaculately kept and includes a stunning terrace area. There is a large gravelled parking area at the front of the house as well as a large two bay garage.
1 The Grange is a superb period house in an enviable position within Pangbourne.
