A distinctive former granary converted some 40 years ago to provide an excellent family home. This "L" shaped building has accommodation arranged over two floors with its former usage as a working granary still much in evidence - nowhere more so than on the landing where the original machinery still remains.
The owners have been in residence since 1989 and the building was first converted from a granary in the 1980s. The dwelling is not listed. The property is predominantly double glazed (10 years) with secondary glazing to one window and is on mains drainage. The kitchen has been renewed within the last 10 years by local craftsmen. The sellers are looking to downsize now that family have flown and will leave with many fond memories.
The entrance hall stands behind a solid wooden door. The impressive staircase rises to the first floor leading to a minstrel gallery. An unusual feature of the hallway is the internal window encased within the staircase wall which looks through to the sitting room. From the hallway an open entry leads to the:

In almost 50 years in estate agency I have never encountered such a breath-taking feature in a home. The landing is of immense proportions and accommodates at high level the very machinery associated with the granary when in its prime. An arrow slit window remains where the belt entered and wrapped itself around the wheel which started the manufacturing process. History before you. At either end of the landing to high levels there is access to the loft areas which are partially boarded. Built in cupboards. Exposed beams and roof trusses. Radiator.

The property is approached by a concrete and shingle drive opening into a courtyard where there is open fronted garaging under a tiled roof for four vehicles. The north-eastern boundary of the courtyard is entirely occupied by 3 connected stone outbuildings, formerly stables with a hayloft in areas. The potential for future conversion of these buildings is patently obvious, subject to planning of course. Home working facility, annexe facility or accommodation to rent and provide an income are just a few that spring to mind. Elsewhere the oil tank and lpg tank are concealed behind wicker fencing. The private courtyard garden areas are based on a Mediterranean theme with a fig tree, French lavender bushes, grapevines and fruit trees in evidence adjacent to a cultivated lawn. A paved patio area stands to the south-eastern boundary.
