The history of Thornton Grange has now been traced, from its origins as a monastically run farm at the turn of the 13th century, through until the 17th century when the lands of the dissolved grange were held by the Hough and Talbot families. This grange was just one of several granges, which formed a common aspect of the Wirral’s medieval landscape. However, of numerous granges on the peninsula, Thornton Grange is unusual on two counts. Firstly, a building called Thornton Grange stands to this day, which is the beautiful home we are offering for sale and secondly the grange lands remain largely undeveloped, meaning that the extent of the former monastic estate can still be approximated.
The current owner bought the property in 2007 and has restored the home to its former glory by exposing many original features. The property is now a beautiful example of a fantastic family home that combines a modern and contemporary style with historical and original features.
The current owner says this property makes a lovely spacious family home. This can be appreciated from the moment you enter the wonderful open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. There are lots of different walks through the adjoining Lever Hulme estate across the countryside. Thornton Hough has a brilliant primary school, a village hall with village green and lovely pubs. The proximity to the motorway network, the train station link at Spital and with the bus stop only a short walk from the Grange this provides access in to Liverpool. The location is also ideal for very popular grammar schools.
This home is impressive from the moment you enter the driveway and approach this outstanding sandstone building, off to the side of your approach you will likely see horses grazing. There are views to the front and rear across open farmland and the historical presence and importance of this home can somehow be imagined.
