Having started life back in 1907, Woodgrange House is a very impressive property which is also extremely welcoming and comfortable. The current owners have added to and vastly improved the property and have done so with sympathy and flair, managing to retain much of the original charm and character. There are numerous period details remaining such as the original staircase, leaded light windows, deep skirting boards and door furniture etc. All of the rooms are of great proportions with many having an attractive outlook over the delightful gardens and far reaching seasonal views across the city to the cathedral.
