Grafton House is a beautiful period house, believed to date from between 1600 and 1650. and retaining many fine period features which include stone mullioned windows and fine period timber beams.

Entering the house via the wonderful, old front door, you are immediately struck by the period charm of the property. There is initially an inner lobby and then you find the main reception hall. Timber blocked flooring, period beams and exposed stone walls are all very attractive.

To your right hand side is the very spacious drawing room which has three windows to the front of the property, all with window seats below and shutters. A timber painted fireplace frames the open fire to the side of which are some period built-in shelves. To the left of the fireplace a doorway leads you to the one of two staircases to upstairs.

On further down the hall, you find a lovely, fitted kitchen with a range of dark slate painted units with tiled worktops. In the centre of the room is a very handy central island table. Appliances include a Smeg gas and electric range cooker, two integrated fridges and a dishwasher. The kitchen leads through to a sunny garden room.

Also at the end of the main hall, adjacent to the kitchen, is superb dining room. Here you find a very old stone fire surround which is in two sections, the larger of which houses a wood burning stove. There are lovely stone mullioned windows with views over the rear courtyard and a further window seat.

A doorway from the dining room leads into a rear lobby or hallway where there are three varying built-in cupboards. To your left-hand side is a very good-sized utility room which also has a shower, WC and hand basin. The lobby also leads to the second staircase and takes you to the first floor.

There are two bedrooms to the front of the house; bedroom 2 is of good size and has built-in desking. The master bedroom has three windows across the front of the house and is a really fine room. There is a stone painted fireplace which is flanked by period built-in cupboards; the one to the left is large and ideal as a wardrobe, the other is a beautiful little store cupboard.

Also on the first floor is a further very spacious double bedroom overlooking the rear garden, a further smaller bedroom, and a wonderful family bathroom. The bathroom suite has been refitted in recent years and has a great quality to it. There are various oak sections or panelling where the water tank is housed. A contemporary style bath and glazed shower cubicle complete the picture.

Back to the main landing, another superb old door with original hinges leads you up to the attic space. Here there are two main areas, one of which is largely a good-sized attic. This is where the Vaillant boiler is housed. The other side is a superb, beamed attic space, ideal as a children’s playroom or for the grown-ups. It is sufficient in size to accommodate a living area and a bedroom with king size bed.

Outside

The garden room leads to a charming courtyard area; to your right side is a delightful studio annexe which is very usable as, perhaps, an artist’s studio, workshop or storage. A purchaser may however wish to convert this space (subject to any permission being required and granted) to provide extra accommodation or a home office. It currently provides one room on the ground floor and a timber ladder style staircase takes you to an upstairs attic space.

The gardens of Grafton House are particularly attractive, being laid mainly to lawn with a variety of well-stocked, pretty, flowerbeds. To the south corner there is a lovely spot to sit and relax under a beautiful white lilac. Two paths lead up to the end of the garden, one of which is gravel at the upper lawned area, the other being stone paved down the northern edge of the garden. At the top, you enjoy a really fine view over the rooftops of Norton St Philip and the countryside beyond. Steps also lead to a gravelled area where there are several compost bins and a good sized shed. In addition, there is a large, two bay car port. The drive to the house is accessed off the lane named “Town Barton”.
