Granary Cottage is a truly unique and impressive family home having been tastefully extended and offering deceptively spacious living space throughout making it highly suitable for larger families or those wishing to join forces and live together/and or combine home and work.
As well as offering a wealth of charm and character this impressive property has been well maintained and benefits from having an attached barn/annexe which is believed to have been built in the 1840’s and has been lovingly restored by the current owners to create a fantastic entertaining space with the most beautiful vaulted ceiling that showcases what is believed to be the original grain store. The barn provides a huge amount of potential for further development by way of incorporating the ground level store room and garage (as can be seen on the comprehensive floor plan) offering excellent ancillary accommodation to the main house or further enlarging the main house accommodation itself (STPP).
The main house briefly comprises: an entrance porch, downstairs cloakroom with WC, generous and well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with ample space for a table and chairs leading through to a large formal dining room with double patio doors out to the rear garden, study/playroom, substantial sitting room with a beautiful brick-built Inglenook fireplace housing a multi-fuel burner and a further double aspect snug room. Upstairs: there are five double bedrooms, a well-appointed family bathroom and an en suite bathroom to bedroom one. The master suite is a large double with a generous size dressing room and en suite bathroom. Oil fired central heating EPC rating: F
The barn is a prominent feature of Granary Cottage and it is steeped in character with its vaulted ceiling and numerous oak ceiling and wall beams. On the ground floor there is an entrance hall with door through to the main house and an additional external door leading to the secondary parking area, shower room with wc and utility room, secondary hallway with external door and stairs to the first floor. On the first floor is an impressive large open plan room with a mezzanine area showcasing what is believed to be the original grain store and a drop-down ladder provides access to another room which is currently used for storage.
Outside and Gardens
Approached via a stunning tree lined private road, there is a large driveway in front of the house with an integral double garage. Additional parking can be found at the side of the property with another single garage and large store room, both of which form part of the barn. The front of the house is privately screened by a well-maintained beech hedge and the garden is mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked beds and shrubs with another lawned area to the side of the house which leads to the rear courtyard garden. The secluded south facing rear garden provides the perfect space for alfresco dining and entertaining. It provides access to the Multi-purpose Garden Studio which has been recently refurbished to a high standard throughout with bi-fold doors opening on to the courtyard garden, making it ideal to be used as a hobby room / home office / Gym.
