The large private residence used to be a Rectory until some time before or after World War 1. It was then the home of Lady Strathconer, who was well-known for her gardening interest and co-operated with Hilliers in training their staff in the garden at the Grange. Lewis Palmer, Lady Strathconer's brother-in-law and a former vice-president of the Royal Horticultural Society, also lived there. He bred many plants, including the Headbourne Hybrid agapanthus.
