Granary Cottage is a truly stunning, archetypal character cottage sympathetically refurbished to a high specification with a great deal of thought and attention to detail which, in combination with its garden studio, offers a wealth of versatile accommodation which approaches 2800 sq ft.

This unique home radiates character with its beautiful double fronted ironstone facade beneath a pantiled roof with bespoke hand-made replacement cottage style double glazed windows and attractive entrance portico. This continues through into the stunning interior which although modernised, complements the original character of the home including beautiful farmhouse style bespoke pippy oak kitchen with granite work surfaces, Travertine tiled floor and high quality integrated appliances.

In addition many of the rooms offer exposed beams and solid fuel fireplaces including a stunning inglenook to the main sitting room. This beautiful reception space offers a wealth of features with the focal point being the inglenook fireplace and benefitting from a dual aspect with views into the gardens. The dining room/snug again is a wonderfully versatile character-filled space having a stunning green oak addition with high vaulted ceiling and aspect out into the courtyard, with the snug area having solid fuel stove and attractive exposed ironstone elevation. A third reception to the ground floor is ideal as a home office, there is also a ground floor cloakroom and utility. The utility in conjunction with the adjacent ground floor double bedroom and ensuite, could be utilised as a teenage or extended family annexe.

To the first floor there are three further double bedrooms, the master offering a dual aspect and beautiful contemporary ensuite bathroom. A further family bathroom services the two other rooms.

As well as the accommodation on offer the property occupies a stunning landscaped established plot with gated driveway and oak framed field store style double garage which screens the private gardens which have been lovingly established over the years to create a tranquil setting, perfect for outdoor living and entertaining.

Nestled within the garden is a stunning studio/annexe with oak bi-fold doors leading out onto a large terrace and giving access into a spacious reception with kitchen area and ensuite facilities. This room offers an abundance of uses and would be perfect as a home office, artist's studio or games room, even potentially annexe for extended families.

Overall the only way to truly appreciate both the location and accommodation of this wonderful unique home, is by internal inspection.

Further facilities can be found in the larger village of Bottesford and market towns of Bingham, Grantham and Melton Mowbray. From Grantham there is a high speed train to King's Cross taking just over an hour, as well as the Kings Grammar and South Kesteven schools.
