Constructed using stone from the original barn, The Granary pays homage to its heritage with exposed stonework and beams and barn-style oak doors with beautiful ironmongery. Discreetly tucked away from the village street, The Granary enjoys significant privacy with an orientation facing its lovely gardens and open countryside beyond.
The double-height glazed entrance (circa 2022) allows swathes of south-facing natural light to flood through the wide, travertine-tiled hallway to the French doors at the rear. The sitting room is triple aspect and spans the width of the house with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden and a door opening onto the large terrace. There is engineered oak flooring throughout with underfloor heating, which continues into the kitchen and garden room. The superb kitchen/dining room is a well-proportioned living space that can comfortably accommodate a family-sized dining table. The handmade kitchen has an island unit with wine rack and storage, there are base fitted units below granite worktops, a double Butler sink, integrated appliances, and a gas-fired range cooker. Steps descend to the light-filled garden room with bespoke, wall-to-wall cabinetry built by a local craftsman and doors giving access to the terrace and gardens.
On the first floor are three double bedrooms, a fourth single bedroom that doubles up as an office and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom suite enjoys far-reaching views, has a dressing area with fitted wardrobe and a shower room.
The house has a gravel driveway at the front with a flagged path leading to the front door and a detached garage on the western corner. Abutting the rear of the house are two paved terraces, one connecting to the sitting room and surrounded by a bed of roses, the other connecting to the garden room and home to one of six water features within the garden. The mature landscaped gardens are glorious; they descend gently, framing a glorious and far-reaching view across rolling hills. The two sweeping lawns are encircled by abundantly planted herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees and, at the far end, through a green arch is a further garden area with stone circle and garden well.
There is a detached single garage of stone under a pantile roof that has been fully boarded out in the loft, ideal for storage. The garage is home to the boiler, and the oil tank and butane cylinders are behind the garage. Attached to the rear is a home office or art studio served by heating and electricity that would make a great space for working from home or a creative space set apart from the house.
