Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Concealed in a country courtyard location and forming an integral part of four properties which have been converted from Northwick Mill Farm, this stylishly appointed and tastefully developed rural retreat is positioned only one mile from the centre of one of the most popular villages in the North Cotswolds and just over two miles from the cosmopolitan Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and two miles from Paxford.

The Granary is actually two properties on each side of a formal lawned garden which is approached via some impressive wrought iron gates, creating a totally enclosed area. The property has gas fired central heating from a combination boiler and the advantage of a ground floor shower room and wash room.

The main property is full of the innate character and charm of a period home with many exposed beams, timber floors, some exposed stone walls and pillars and a substantial inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove in the living room. A contemporary twist has been added with four velux windows, two in the living room and two in the beautifully designed breakfast kitchen which also has bi-fold doors to the garden. The bespoke fitted kitchen has a good range of integrated appliances and a homely gas fired Aga.

At first level there are three double bedrooms, a family bathroom with a roll top bath and an en-suite to the master bedroom.

The second property opposite The Granary is a double garage with an external stone staircase to one side leading to a one bedroomed guest suite or holiday flat above both the garage and the passageway. In addition to the double garage, there is off street parking for 3 vehicles at the end of a private driveway.

Positioned midway between Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh, Blockley has two public houses, hotel, its own primary school and a recently built supermarket and cafe which doubles as a high quality restaurant on Friday evenings. Scenic walks can be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside and the property is adjacent to a local equestrian centre. The popular Churchill Arms in Paxford is just two miles away.

Directions

From our Moreton in Marsh office, turn left. At the second mini roundabout turn right onto the A44 continuing through the village of Bourton on the Hill, after which turn right signposted Blockley 1.5 miles. When entering the village continue on the same road, past the village green on the left and the Great Western arms on the right and further on for approximately one mile, passing the turning for Draycott on the right and into the countryside. Pay careful attention as there will then be four properties on the right hand side and three driveways. Positioned just before the national speed limit sign, the first driveway is for Northwick Mill Farm and the second is for The Old Dairy and The Granary. Turn right into the middle driveway and this is then the second property on the right hand side.
