Description

A charming ground floor apartment within a magnificent former mansion house, set amongst wonderful woodland grounds on the edge of one of the most sought after and exclusive villages in the region. No. 3 Scarcroft Grange is one of six superb apartments set in what was originally a Country House, former home of Lady Ryder of Warsaw who was married to Leonard Cheshire and dates back to the 18th Century. The house was sympathetically and skillfully converted in 1954 by the well regarded builder, Norman Wilkinson.

Representing exceptionally good value for money with the main accommodation extending to approximately 1600 sqft, the property is set within superbly presented gardens which adjoin open woodland. Recently renovated, this is a property that should appeal to a variety of buyers, especially those looking to downsize to a more manageable size of property on a ground floor level.

The accommodation briefly comprises; Communal entrance hall and vestibule, private entrance hall, South facing lounge with a double glazed bay window and French doors leading onto an immaculate landscaped rear garden.
