Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Granary was converted we are told during the early 1990's and has been in the ownership of our clients for approximately thirteen years. It nestles in stunning well-manicured level gardens a short distance from the beautiful village Church and has a well enclosed and secluded plot.

Internally, the accommodation which is superbly presented consists of a large two storey, three bedroom principle home with an adjacent self-contained two bedroom single storey barn which is let on a holiday basis providing a valuable income stream.

The principle part of the property includes a welcoming reception hall and stunning dual aspect irregular shaped sitting room which is dominated by the fire surround, having a wood burning stove. This room has two sets of double doors providing access to the garden which frames the pleasant outlook. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of country style matching wall and base units with granite worktops and an oil fired Heritage (Aga style) oven included in the sale. The kitchen is open to the dining room and collectively makes the stunning family area which is a perfect space for entertaining. Concluding the ground floor is a large utility room, double bedroom with double fitted wardrobes, an en-suite WC and a matching fitted bathroom/WC with shower over the panelled bath.

The main residence could be knocked through into the adjacent barn if needed, creating one large five bedroom home.

On the first floor of The Old Granary there are two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite WC and access through to the simply huge eaves storage area. This area which has slightly restricted headroom has a wealth of opportunity for those looking to undertake hobbies or games or create a home office. It has potential (subject to consents) to be converted into further residential accommodation.

The two bedroom adjacent annexe is known as "The Barn" and is again well proportioned and includes a dual aspect lounge with a feature fire surround and access to the garden from the front via French doors. The large inner hallway leads to all the remaining rooms including the kitchen/dining room which again is well equipped with a range of matching units. There are two bedrooms, the biggest having a built-in wardrobe and a family bathroom/WC with an electric shower over the panelled bath. The barn has its own supply of some of the services and is rated separately.

The Old Granary has a wealth of features including a decorative beamed ceiling in the lounge, decorative wooden lintels throughout and wooden internal doors, whilst the whole building enjoys modern comforts such as oil fired central heating and wooden sealed unit double glazed windows. The whole property is particularly flexible and perfect for multi-generational families or those wanting to derive a second income stream.

Outside, The Old Granary is approached via a five bar vehicular gate which opens into the large tarmacadam driveway/turning area. There is a double garage with a covered log store and tool area at the rear. There are a number of further sheds and stores including a garden shed and recycling store. The gardens are large and at present nicely divided between The Barn and The Old Granary via attractive trellising.

The gardens are well manicured and a credit to the owners who work tirelessly to keep it looking great. The Barn's garden is beautifully kept with shrubs, bushes and perennials, including a paved seating area with many climbers currently a blaze of colour. At the rear of the property there is a productive cultivated vegetable area where much produce is being grown. Also the rear courtyard has a feature pond with fish, a small greenhouse and a summerhouse. The main area of garden of The Old Granary is again beautifully manicured with several rockery areas well planted with a range of shrubs, bushes and perennials to include Hydrangeas, Rhododendrons, Camellias to name but a few. The barked beds meander through to the back of the garden where there are further gravelled paths and many further well known shrubs. There is an immediate paved seating area off the lounge which is perfect for Alfresco dining during the warmer months and a raised lawn which sweeps its way round where there are fruit cage. The whole of the garden has been beautifully kept and due to its orientation there are many spots throughout the course of the day to find the sunshine when the weather allows with a pleasant back drop featuring the top of the Church Tower.
