Vendors' thoughts: "Formerly a grain store, The Granary has been a wonderful home to bring up our family. It is a house for all seasons, where we have enjoyed long summer evenings with friends in our garden to cosy winter evenings by the fire. Tarlton is a lovely village to live in, particularly with such beautiful countryside and walks on our doorstep. Equally, it has been great to be so close to the historical, market town of Cirencester and to have the convenience of Kemble station. We will be very sorry to leave, but feel that the time is now right for whoever moves here to enjoy everything that the house and the area has to offer."
In a nutshell: A superb Cotswold home with generous proportions and a lovely south-facing enclosed garden.
The Granary is a beautiful and generously proportioned converted barn located down a quiet country lane on the edge of the village. Careful thought and attention has been put into creating practical yet welcoming living spaces with an abundance of natural light throughout.
The entrance hall with boot room provides ample discreet storage for muddy wellies and winter coats.
The kitchen/ dining room is clearly the heart of the house and a wonderful room in which to entertain family and friends. The room is superbly laid out around a centre island with a Falcon range oven, plenty of worktop space and storage which includes a handy larder. The dining area works perfectly for everyday gatherings and for more formal dinner parties.
The adjacent sitting room works brilliantly as a tv/ movie room and flows through to the generous living room with inglenook fireplace and wood burner. This is a lovely room in which to relax in front of the fire after a long country walk and French doors allow for indoor/ outdoor living in the warmer months.
The study doubles as a further sitting room with French doors giving on to the terrace. Stairs lead up to a double bedroom and with the shower room this wing of the house is superbly laid out for hosting guests.
The ground floor also has a handy utility and cloakroom.
Upstairs in the main house there are four double bedrooms and two bathroom/ wet rooms. The rooms are bright and light with ample discreet storage.
Outside the delightful garden is predominantly laid to lawn, surrounded by pretty herbaceous borders and mature trees. The terrace, surrounded by stunning flowerbeds, is perfect for enjoying sundowners in the summer and al fresco dining.
To the front of the house there is private parking. There is also a garage and car port.
