Constructed of Cambridgeshire brick under a dormered roof, The Grove dates back to 1750.

The original house was modified in the mid-19th century in a Victorian Gothic style with characteristic arches throughout.

The house has recently undergone rewiring, re-plumbing and window refurbishment.

There are two further reception rooms at the front of the house – one is currently used as a welcoming snug and the other as a games room but could equally be a study or playroom.

To the rear of the property is an enviable kitchen/breakfast room with a bespoke hand painted kitchen with a wide array of shaker style units, stone work surfaces, a central island with breakfast bar and an Aga.

There is underfloor heating throughout the kitchen/diner, beneath wide limestone tiles (from Mandarin Stone).

An additional pair of bedrooms and shared shower room on the second floor are accessed via a separate staircase. 

The gardens are a particular feature of the property, with a formal level lawn to the side of the house flanked by deep herbaceous shrub borders and a number of mature trees. 

Another huge bonus is the range of period outbuildings. These include a former grain store and barn, plus some original stables. The outbuildings offer ample storage, and may provide some scope for conversion subject to any necessary consents.

In addition, there is a walled garden enclosing a tennis court, a small orchard, a green house installed by the current owners, a pergola seating area and raised flower beds.

The tennis court has been relaid with Savannah artificial grass.
