grange

Use the noun grange to mean a country farm house. A grange usually has outbuildings, like barns and sheds, which are often built onto the main grange house.

On an old-fashioned, small farm, the farming family lives in the grange house, while they work on the surrounding land and in attached barns or workshops. You're more likely to hear the word grange in Britain than in the United States these days. A clue about its origins are found in gran: when you see that root, you'll know a word has something to do with grain, or granum in Latin.
