Vendors' thoughts: "The moment we saw The Granary and the beautiful sunset across the paddock and the fields beyond, we fell in love with it…and that was before it was even finished! We were blown away by the light and space and quality of finish. It is a stunning place to live. We love the impressive kitchen/dining area and courtyard garden, which are perfect for entertaining and family gatherings, and the original features that have been retained. The location is also fantastic. We can be in Cirencester or Kemble Station for the fast trains to London in 10 minutes, and we have beautiful countryside, traditional Cotswold villages and great country pubs on our doorstep. We shall miss it very much."
In a nutshell: A sensational barn conversion, beautifully blending traditional and contemporary living.
The Granary is a 4,284 sq ft luxury barn conversion in the heart of the Cotswolds. Dating back to 1880, the existing barn was fully refurbished in 2018 by Castellum who were mindful to create a fabulous contemporary home whilst maintaining the charm and original character of the barn. Finished to a very high standard, great emphasis has been put into creating ample natural light throughout with highly efficient Velfac glass walling, coupled with clever atmospheric lighting and modern technology, such as underfloor heating, CAT-5 cabling throughout and high-speed internet. Contemporary living at its best.
The kitchen/breakfast room is clearly the heart of the house and a fabulous place in which to entertain family and friends. The bespoke kitchen, equipped with integrated modern appliances, flows beautifully into the dining area and provides excellent storage and workspace. The dining area with impressive vaulted ceiling has French doors leading to the terrace and garden beyond, allowing indoor/outdoor living in the warmer months.
The adjacent drawing room is spacious, yet also cosy, and the wood burner offers extra warmth in the winter. The partially exposed stone wall and the sliding barn door add great character to this room. It is fabulous for entertaining friends and equally superb to relax in with a good book.
A further sitting room with a feature inset electric fireplace and T.V. makes for a wonderful cinema room or a spacious playroom for young children.
The utility room is a superb addition to the ground floor and leads to a handy boot room, with access to the side garden and paddock, ideal after those muddy country walks! Adjacent to this is an impressive games room and a fully fitted, bespoke study.
The ground floor is also home to two double bedrooms, with sliding doors giving onto the walled garden, and a family bathroom.
The first floor comprises the master bedroom with en suite shower room and dressing area.
Along the part-galleried landing are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
All the bedrooms have been thoughtfully laid out to provide ample and discreet storage.
Outside, the walled south facing garden is predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with a variety of herbaceous borders with lavender beds and a pair of mature olive trees. Attractively landscaped, it is a peaceful setting in which to relax. The terrace is ideal for al fresco dining in the summer months and ample parking is available on the private gravelled driveway to the front of the house. A double garage provides additional parking/ storage space. Across the driveway is a paddock of approximately 1.5 acres.
The Granary is a truly impressive and beautiful barn conversion in a wonderful part of the Cotswolds.
