An attractive converted period granary barn with detached studio, cart barn and pretty gardens.
Originally one of the farm buildings of Boarden Farm and understood to have been converted in 2007, The Granary is a beautifully converted sympathetic conversion of a Kentish granary in a delightful rural location about 2.2 miles north east of the popular village of Staplehurst.
The property retains many features including beautiful original timbers, wooden floors, latch doors and high vaulted ceilings presenting a welcoming, characterful country home.
The ground floor features underfloor heating and incorporates open plan reception rooms, with the central vaulted dining hall having two staircases, one leading up to the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and the other to the two further bedrooms and family shower room. All bedrooms benefit from built in storage space. The sitting room with wooden flooring and enjoying a triple aspect has timber framed double doors which lead to the patio area. This room has beautiful exposed beams and a wood burning stove set in an exposed brick fireplace.
The well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with tiled flooring and enjoying a dual aspect, is fitted with a combination of granite and wooden worktops together with a range of bespoke wooden units. Appliances include an oil fired Alpha cooker which serves the central heating and a free standing Bosch fridge/freezer. There are various built in appliances including a dishwasher. A utility room with a sink unit has a door which leads to the charming cloakroom.
The Granary is approached via a driveway passing the beautiful pond on your left hand side, the driveway leads to a generous gravelled driveway with parking for several cars. The beautiful gardens total about 0.8 of an acre and lie predominantly to the front and rear of the property with a terrace area, lawn edged with a gravel path and views over adjoining farmland. Located within the garden are three wooden garden stores.
To the north of the main house is an oak framed cart barn with lovely old timbers, which could be converted to other uses subject to planning. In addition there is a part brick, part timber studio currently used as an artist's studio and previously a home office, providing an excellent space which could potentially be developed further subject to necessary planning permissions, below which is a garage and a log store.
