THE PROPERTY

The Old Granary is a fantastic detached village home which offers spacious and well presented accommodation. The property is believed to have origins dating back to the 18th century which evolved into a groom's cottage with a granary attached before being converted in the 1970's into the wonderful family home seen today. Under the current ownership, the property has been beautifully maintained and updated with alterations carried out with sympathy to the history of the building, creating a stylish, comfortable home with every modern convenience in place.

Character features are abundant throughout with all the hallmarks of a historic property in place including a striking stone facade, exposed beams throughout the ground floor and stone mullion windows in several rooms. A fine example of how these fine period features blend seamlessly with a fresh, modern scheme of decoration can be found in the sitting room where exposed beams span the ceiling and an impressive fireplace with an inset multifuel burner provides a characterful focal point, creating a sense of great comfort and tranquility. Another fascinating feature is the ironwork which borders the upper tier of this split-level room and is believed to have been reclaimed from a church.

Internally, the accommodation is arranged in a simple, classical layout with 3 reception rooms, the kitchen and the utility room located on the ground floor and 4 bedrooms and the family bathroom upstairs. The front door to the property opens into a welcoming entrance hall from which the utility room can be accessed, where there is plumbing for laundry appliances, a

deep sink and a WC. To the right of the hallway is the kitchen which is fitted with attractive, traditional-style units including an integrated dishwasher, oven and gas hob and there is also a walk-in larder. Adjoining the kitchen is the dining room which is a wonderful environment for formal entertaining and everyday family meals alike. The centrepiece of the ground floor is the sitting room which features a split level, with steps from a primary seating area leading up to fireside platform. From here double doors lead into the conservatory from which a charming outlook across the garden can be enjoyed and direct access is available to outside, enabling a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

On the first floor, the 4 bedrooms are arranged along a wide landing. The master bedroom is a particularly fine room with plenty of built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room and there are two additional double bedrooms, a well proportioned single bedroom and the family bathroom which is fitted with a modern suite comprising corner bath, WC and wash hand basin.

OUTSIDE

The Old Granary benefits from an attractive plot measuring just over a quarter of an acre, much of which stretches behind the property and forms a largely private rear garden. Cleverly landscaped into rooms , wonderful opportunities to realise a fantastic outdoor lifestyle can be found at every turn, from relaxing or dining al fresco on the sun terrace overlooking the ornamental ponds to flexing green fingers maintaining the established borders and growing produce. Ample parking is provided to the front of the property with a gravelled parking and turning area leading to the double garage, which benefits from power and light and an electric roller door. There is also a timber workshop which also enjoys power and light, ideal for keen hobbyists or those working from home, as well as a greenhouse, a garden shed and a wood shed.

SITUATION

The property is located on the fringe of the popular village of South Petherton which benefits from a broad variety of day-to day amenities as well as an active and friendly community with many clubs and societies profiting from various communal halls.
