Description

The Old Granary is a stunning and truly quintessential Grade II Listed detached barn conversion, completed late 2012. The property offers extensive and generously appointed accommodation thus providing a unique combination of retained original characteristics blended with the historical aspect of the property and a contemporary element of design and style, providing the benefits of modern day living in a historic setting.

The property is finished to a high standard including a fully integrated bespoke kitchen and is offered with the balance of a 10 year NHBC warranty. The property benefits from a spectacular landscaped garden, approx. 0.75 acres in total and includes a large, spring-fed natural pond.

A wealth of exposed beams serve as a reminder to the 16th century origins of the property whilst enhancing the style with a contemporary twist throughout, including natural stone flooring to the ground floor, oak double-glazed windows throughout and granite worktops in the kitchen.

Location

Upper Court is found just on the edge of the picturesque village of Eardisley, which is a very attractive village forming part of the Black and White Trail , some 15 miles west of the cathedral city of Hereford. Eardisley village has a general store, post office, primary school, 2 public houses, church, village hall and hairdressers. Eardisley is approximately 6 miles from the market town of Kington. Hay-on-Wye, which is internationally famed for its annual literary festival held each Spring, is approximately 10 miles way.

Accommodation

Overall the accommodation is very versatile offering four en-suite bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study.

Upon entering the property, one is immediately aware of the stunning ambiance of the garden sitting room, which benefits from a set of fully glazed doors leading to the landscaped garden. This room is open up to the original apex beams and a first floor gallery/mezzanine area which is currently used as a dining room, but could, so easily, be utilised as a library/reading room/study.

From the garden sitting room there is an opening into the exceptional bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with a range of soft closing cupboard and drawer storage, granite worktops, a central island with a solid wood worktop and an excellent range of integral Neff appliances.

These include an integrated micro-wave, fridge, stainless steel sink, double eye-level oven and five ring gas hob. Within the kitchen there is ample space for a family sized table and chairs.

The kitchen has a set of floor to ceiling french style doors leading out to a gravel patio area, at the front of the property.

A further doorway leads through to the elegant and spacious main sitting room, which retains original beams and ironwork, from days gone by. Another feature in this generously sized room is the fireplace with a Stovax Regency hooded woodburner, which operates both as a closed stove and an open fireplace. Again this room has floor to ceiling double doors leading out to the gravel area at the front of the property.

Immediately out of the main sitting room is a hallway giving access to the utility room with plumbing for washing machine, space and power for a tumble dryer, space for a tall freezer and an airing cupboard containing the pressurised hot water cylinder.

Opposite to the utility room is a bathroom with a panel bath with a shower over, a close coupled w.c., and wash hand basin.

Adjacent is, what is currently used as an office however, this was originally designed as a downstairs bedroom with the benefit of the close proximity bathroom.

This room has floor to ceiling windows on both aspects, one aspect opening out directly onto the patio and rear garden and the other opening onto the front gravel patio.

A staircase leads from the kitchen area to the mezzanine floor and a beautiful guest suite.

A further staircase leads from the main sitting room to a first-floor landing and hallway. This gives access to the master bedroom, which is of an excellent proportion, with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and tongue and groove panelling, incorporating a dressing area with two large built-in wardrobes with oak panel sliding doors and a ledge and brace door leading to the en-suite bathroom.

Further down the hallway is a lovely en-suite bedroom which also benefits from a door leading onto the outside Old Granary steps. The two en-suite bathrooms, although separate, have the benefit of being interconnected.

Outside

The property is approached via the exclusive private development roadway to a generous gravel parking and turning area. Immediately to the front there is an attached double garage with a single electric up and over garage door and a pedestrian door leading to the front of the property.

The garden is an exceptionally private oasis, which was originally designed by Peter Antonius, taking into account the natural features of the original pond and the established weeping willow.

The pond has a delightful display of lily pads and flows into a stream, which meanders through the garden.

The garden is level with manicured lawns, delightful pergola archway and brick/stone edged pathways. The rest of the garden has been stocked with various herbaceous plants, shrubs, trees and flowering plants.

This delightful and established garden provides many seating areas, which benefit from a mainly south easterly aspect and thus provides an ideal environment to relax and enjoy.
