Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Granary The Old Granary comprises two period stone barns that have been sympathetically converted to provide a high quality family home with the adjacent barn providing flexible accommodation. Currently designed as an annexe, workshop and large first floor office the second barn could easily be adapted into a 3 to 4 bedroomed holiday let with good income earning potential.

The gardens adjoin farmland and have wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and an adjacent lake. The conversion has been carried out in both barns including, modern comforts such as under floor heating, hardwood window frames with double glazing whilst retaining character with original roof timbers. The reception area in the main barn has exposed stone walls and is open full height to the vaulted ceiling creating a particularly impressive living space. The bathrooms have been fitted with contemporary white suites and tiled either with travertine or slate. There is a good sized garden to the north, and courtyard to the south providing a separate parking area and garden for the annex.

The property is located amidst picturesque countryside some 3 miles from the southern coast of the Island. Nearby villages of Whitwell and Niton provide public houses and in Niton there are local shopping facilities, with Newport (6.5 miles) providing more extensive facilities.

A diverse range of attractions are nearby ranging from the wonderful beaches of the south western coast, Steephill Cove and Monks Bay as well as Ventnor Botanical Gardens and St Catherine's Lighthouse. The surrounding countryside provides excellent walking, riding and mountain biking. A range of ferry services provide frequent crossings to the mainland from the Island's north coast.
