The Grange is a beautifully presented former rectory thought to date from the mid 17th century with later additions. The house is built of local limestone and ironstone and stands on the edge of the village of Cogenhoe in Northamptonshire. It has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished since its sale by the church two decades ago and now offers great family accommodation over three floors with cellars below. Period features include open fireplaces, wonderful bay and sash windows and a wonderful freestanding bath in the family bathroom.

Accommodation comprises in full: entrance hall, four reception rooms, farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, secondary kitchen, larder and cellars in the basement; the first floor has the master bedroom suite and there are seven further bedrooms on the first

and second floors with three further bath/shower rooms.
