The Old Granary is one of four properties quietly located at the end of a long private track on the southern edge of the popular village of Inkberrow. The village benefits from a range of local amenities including a post office, shop, doctors surgery, public houses and a well regarded primary school. In addition, there is a
sports club and thriving local community. More extensive shopping and leisure facilities are to be found in the cathedral city of Worcester, together with Alcester and Stratford upon Avon. There is an excellent choice of both state and private schools in the locality. For the commuter there is easy access to the M5, both Junctions 6 and 7 connecting to Birmingham in the north and Bristol in the south. In addition, the new Worcester Parkway station with its direct connection to London, is easily reached to the south east of Worcester at Norton, 12 miles away.
The Old Granary was formerly a traditional brick barn and outbuildings which were converted to provide a spacious family home offering flexible accommodation. The entrance to the property is via a pretty south facing cottage garden with a doorway leading into the entrance hall and through into an impressive vaulted sitting room with a fabulous high ceiling with exposed roof beams, trusses and a feature fireplace with a woodburning stove. A doorway gives access to the rear garden and at the far end of the room a staircase leads up to a small gallery providing a wonderful view across the sitting room and access to a guest bedroom suite. From the sitting room a door leads through into the terracotta tiled breakfast kitchen having exposed beams, a range of handmade oak wall and floor units, with a Watson oil fired range cooker set into a brick chimney surround. There is a separate electric oven and integrated dishwasher and the main aspect overlooks the lovely cottage garden. Steps lead down into a dining room with a window looking out onto the garden at the rear. This room would also be ideal for use as a playroom for anyone with a young family. Beyond the kitchen is a large conservatory with terracotta tiled floor and doors to the terrace and garden.
From the main hallway there is flexible, almost self-contained additional ground floor accommodation, ideal for either an elderly relative or teenagers comprising a study, office/bedroom 5, together with bedroom 4 which is a comfortable double room with double doors leading onto the front of the property. There is also a utility room which could easily be reconfigured and used as an additional kitchen area if required and there is a recently modernised shower room, having a large double shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.
On the first floor, the master bedroom is a attractive large double bedroom with double aspect including a pair of double doors with a Juliet balcony overlooking the front of the property. There is an impressive central beam and, being L-shaped, has a natural dressing area and to one side a beautifully modernised en-suite bathroom with bath, shower over, basin, WC and bidet. The adjacent bedroom 2 is also a double with a pleasant outlook to the side of the property. Bedroom 3 is accessed from the sitting room and is a lovely private suite ideal for guests having a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a modernised luxury en-suite bathroom.
Gardens and grounds
The Old Granary is located in a superb rural spot, accessed via a five bar gate and gravelled driveway. By the entrance is a very pretty south facing cottage garden which is extremely well planted with a variety of flowers and shrubs. At the rear of the property is a large terrace, a wonderful space for alfresco dining which in turn leads onto the main lawned garden which is beautifully landscaped and arranged into a number of rooms divided by mature hedging and enclosing some well planted flower and shrub borders. The lawn continues to one side under a canopy of trees leading through to the post and rail fence at the rear with views beyond into the separately owned woodland.
