    overviewRadwell Grange Farm_PAGES_V3.indd 3 23/02/2015 08:57

  • Approach to the property is via a no through lane with the only occupants nearby being the farm located next to the property, thus making this home very private and in a delightful setting surrounded by neighbouring farmland. You are initially presented with a large gravel courtyard driveway with access to the main property, gardens and outbuildings.

    Set over three levels, internally the property offers a number of well proportioned reception areas, a large drawing room, a cosy living room and of particular note the garden room with delightful views of the rear garden. The property also contains a beautiful handmade kitchen incorporating a four oven AGA, spacious breakfast area and exposed timbers. The sleeping quarters are split over two levels, the master bedroom with en suite facilities and a separate dressing area, there are a further two double bedrooms on this level with one of the rooms also incorporating en suite facilities. The remaining two bedrooms are on the upper level with a large family bathroom servicing this area of the home.

  • We bought the property in 2007, explains Charlie. Wed been living in central London and we were looking for a larger, family

    home. After a long search both in London and

    beyond, we discovered Radwell Grange. It had

    had nothing done to it in 30 years, except that

    one of the barns had been turned into a private

    theatre with a stage and lighting by the late Sir

    Nigel Hawthorne, a previous owner.

  • vendorThe refurbishment of the house included new plumbing and wiring, elaborates Emmie. We replaced the old Formica kitchen with hand-built cabinets of solid oak, which

    were specially made to fit around the open studwork dividing the

    kitchen from the breakfast area. The kitchen also now incorporates

    a four-oven Aga.

  • The house has a lovely, happy atmosphere, continues Charlie. Weve loved entertaining people in the large sunny garden room, where weve seated 15

    to 20 people. Ill particularly miss the garden, which has also been wonderful for the

    children. Its a safe garden and that includes the large pond, which has a fence

    around it.

    basins and an enclosed WC. There are two more en suite bedrooms and a further bathroom.
