Property Summary9, The Granary is situated just off the high street in the popular village of Oakhill near Wells and within an exclusive gated development of impressive homes. This lovely detached property offers superb living space and benefits from two storey ancillary accommodation currently offered as a studio apartment and office, all privately enclosed within its stone walled boundary. Further planning permission has been granted in the main house to incorporate an additional reception/entertainment room within the existing scheme. On entering through the wrought iron electric gates that lead off the high street the exclusive quality of this secure bespoke development is clear and the combination of natural stone and render under a tiled roof make this mews style house handsome and appealing.
Through the front door, a wide and generous hallway is welcoming and light, featuring engineered oak floorboards. From here to the left, an immaculately presented kitchen has everything that you would expect to find including integrated appliances, an electric oven and hob and traditional style Belfast sink. The kitchen opens into the dining room making a lovely through room with a door from the front of the property into the kitchen and double doors out from the dining room onto the rear patio, a perfect space for family life and entertaining. From the entrance hall to the right there is a stylish living room with windows to the front and a coal effect gas fire here provides a convenient burst of warmth in cooler weather, a further door from the living room leads out to the front.
Adjacent to the stairs there is a practical hub combining a downstairs cloakroom, and again, an immaculately fitted utility area with separate storage area for keeping everything tidied away. It is from this storage area that permission has been granted for a doorway through into a newly designed reception /entertainment room. On the first floor there is an impressive main bedroom suite with en-suite shower room, fitted wardrobes and a door that opens onto a balcony to the front of the property. There is room for a small bistro table here making it an ideal spot for coffee and the weekend papers. There is a second en-suite double bedroom and a further two double bedrooms served by the family bathroom. Separate to the main house a detached self-contained annexe containing a studio apartment on the first floor is of an excellent design being contemporary and stylish. A kitchenette and living area are separated from the bedroom area with the placement of a partial wall featuring stone effect tiles on the living room side and a wardrobe on the bedroom side. This is a teenager’s dream, to be close to the family home but to have independence and privacy. It would be perfect too as a guest suite or as an income-generation stream. On the ground floor there is a wonderful contemporary bathroom and a large and separate space currently used as an office but this could easily be combined into the rest of the property as a living room. 9, The Granary is presented in immaculate order and will provide its new owners with a wonderful permanent home or a Somerset base to lock up and leave without any security or maintenance concerns.
Outside - For those who enjoy being outside but don’t want to spend their precious free time tending to a garden, 9, The Granary is ideal. There is a well thought out and attractive combination of paved patio areas and an amazing multi level decking area that can be accessed from the courtyard outside the dining room and from a door on the landing of the first floor. A Wisteria covered pergola provides a sheltered and very private spot for sunbathing. The rear garden area nestles into the ground behind the house, which forms a naturally sheltering amphitheatre. The decking area that meets the first floor forms an extensive under croft on the ground floor and it is into this area that planning permission has been granted for a 17’ x 12’ additional reception / entertainment area. Adjacent to the right of the property there is private parking for two cars.
