About this property

  • The Old Bakery is situated in the delightful hamlet of Kineton in spectacular undulating countryside. The property is Grade II Listed with the accommodation arranged over three floors. Of particular note is the magnificent music room with barrel vaulted ceiling and handsome fireplace. There is also a welcoming sitting room and formal dining room. The property benefits from two kitchens. The summer kitchen is a recent addition and opens out to the terrace and swimming pool via bi-fold doors, creating the perfect place for entertaining and family life. In addition there is a well-appointed utility room and home office.

    The bedroom accommodation is set out over the first and second floors comprising five bedrooms, one of which has access to an en suite shower room.

    Bakery Cottage is an intriguing property and provides very useful self-contained ancillary accommodation for family or staff set out over the ground floor. The Bakery was formerly a working building and now provides a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room, generous sitting/dining room and two bedrooms, one of which is en suite. Potential exists to incorporate Bakery Cottage into The Old Bakery by simply opening up a blocked door between the two properties.

    The Granary is a well-presented detached cottage with an ample kitchen/dining/sitting room and an excellent bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers. The Granary would make the perfect holiday cottage, providing an additional income stream.

    The gardens and grounds are a delight with mature lawns and established borders. Steps lead down to a glade which lies alongside the River Windrush, the perfect place to build a camp, enjoy a riverside picnic or install a shepherd's hut. There is also a tranquil lake.

    Planning permission was obtained under reference 12/00015/FUL for the “erection of link between house and barn, two storey extension to side, and rebuilding of chimney”. Works have commenced to secure the planning.
