General - The Grange is a wonderful Regency House and is, without doubt, one of the finest period properties in West Leicestershire. The elegant and gracious interior was cleverly combined with a contemporary kitchen extension when the Grange underwent a sensitive restoration, some years ago. Great care has been taken to preserve the character of this wonderful house and the principal rooms are graced with high ceilings, magnificent sash windows, deep skirting's and fireplaces typical of the period. It should be noted that The Grange is not listed, which is a significant advantage, should a purchaser wish to make changes and further develop the property. Although in many ways this a "grand" house it is still very much a family home with light, spacious and flexible accommodation.
Location - Cadeby is a charming viIlage located immediately to the South East of Market Bosworth. The village is one of the prettiest in the area and is largely made up of period cottages and houses. Market Bosworth is one of the most well regarded and exclusive towns in West Leicestershire. The town services a wide area and there is a traditional market every Wednesday as well as a Farmers Market on the fourth Sunday of every month. The town is home to one of the area's leading private schools, The Dixie Grammar, there are also Primary and High Schools.
Cont. - It should be noted that the High School has been rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted. There is a thriving community with a variety of sports clubs including rugby, football and bowls. To the West of Market Bosworth is a marina and water park and there is a large country park overlooked by the historic Bosworth Hall Hotel. There is a high speed rail link from Nuneaton making it possible to commute to London Euston by train in just over an hour.
Historic Note - Prospective purchasers are advised that there is a full and fascinating documented history of the property that can be made available on request. Although we know little of the exact dates, in the Domesday Book the Manor of "Catebi" is recorded as having a resident Priest since the 1220s and Rectors since 1385. Further research by previous occupants shows that The Grange was most probably re-built on the site of what was likely to be the original Parsonage of the village. This occurred in the early 19th Century with Archdeacon Bonney describing a "new and handsome Rectory" in 1842. The main part of the property was believed to have been constructed circa 1832. The sash windows have been markedly improved with the ventrolla system, having an 84% efficiency comparable to double glazing.
Security - There is a high level security system with electric security gates, CCTV infrared camera system, together with a monitored house alarm.
The House - There are formal walled gardens to the front of The Grange with two electric wrought iron security gates opening onto an 'in and out' drive.
