There are more than five centuries of history behind Wootton Grange House on the outskirts of Kenilworth, Warwickshire.
Part of the original manor house was built more than 550 years ago and the property is now Grade II listed.
Situated in three acres of grounds, this traditional property has many original features including the doors and the exposed beams to the ceilings and walls.
The accommodation is split over three floors and offers a total of four bedrooms and two reception rooms. It has an impressive exterior of solid stone, timber beam and brick. Inside it offers a number of historic features. These include an original fireplace and two storey character chimney breast, a wealth of original beams throughout the interior and some wonderful hand-made period doors.
While restoring some of the historic features, the present owners also took the opportunity to update the interior to accommodate the 21st century lifestyle.
The renovations included replacing the flooring, windows and doors and renewing the bathrooms. A lot of work went into a spacious double-height room that opens onto the garden through some French doors and is ideal for dining and entertaining. The garage was also extended to create a triple space with a staircase included up to a floor above.
Entry to the house is through a sturdy oak front door from the front courtyard. There is a chimney breast with exposed stone to the back and an understairs storage cupboard.
Reception rooms included a drawing room with inglenook fireplace with stone hearth and back, polished stainless steel canopy and flue over into chimney breast. There is a window to the front and bay window to the back. On the ceiling are exposed beams. Stairs rise from here to the first floor.
