Property code: 75877

This little granary dates back to the 16th century, with traditional features together with the contemporary amenities and beautiful countryside views, with plenty to see and do nearby.

This quirky and unique property for two is ideally located in the county of Wiltshire and provides an excellent base to explore the abundance of activities and attractions on offer. Location wise you’re spoilt for choice as you can explore Bath, Shaftesbury, Salisbury,  Bristol and all the surrounding counties, you will need to return to fit it all in. Located just off the A36 there are easily accessible day trips just around the corner like Stonehenge, Longleat House, Longleat Safari and Avebury to mention a few. If all this sounds too exhausting, a day lounging at the property in the beautiful garden will leave you relaxed and refreshed.

Stepping through the front door and into this beautiful studio style property you will be greeted with high oak beams, adding to the character of this outstanding property. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner has ample space for two and beautiful views across the fields. The cosy lounge area has two huge sofas, a hide away pull-out double bed and a TV with Sky HS movies and sports package. Behind the lounge area is the kitchen/diner which is well-equipped to prepare meals with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, with a lovely dining table to dine in. A washing machine and dishwasher are located in the external laundry room. Off the kitchen is a shower room with shower and WC. Sneaked away in the corner of the lounge is a ladder style staircase leading to the first-floor mezzanine level, king-size bedroom -  a snug and romantic area looking down onto the rest of the property.

If the inside wasn’t quirky enough, the outside compliments it very well, with a private courtyard, a stunning water feature and plenty of space to dine alfresco, with the option to use the charcoal BBQ. The courtyard is the perfect spot to relax, reflect on the day and admire the beautiful little granary. There is off-road parking for two cars.
