This fine residence stands towards the end of a private shared lane just a short distance from the centre of the attractive village of Ashwater which can also be accessed via a picturesque footpath from Old Rectory Lane. Our client has resided in the property since 2000 and has enjoyed the peace and tranquillity on offer, spending hours in the wonderful enclosed and sheltered gardens which are a major feature of the home. The accommodation is highly flexible, full of character and charm and well worthy of an internal viewing. The detached studio is perfect for those who have a number of hobbies or wish to work from home and within the property is a large useful workshop which subject to consents could be altered to create further accommodation. Either way, there are many ingredients to The Granary that will be appreciated upon viewing.

Slated steps lead up to the first floor where there is a splendid large open plan reception area. This room has many windows which overlook the garden.

Bedroom two which also leads from the hall could be used as an office if required.
On the ground floor is an exceptionally large additional living space. This area is incredibly flexible and has double French doors leading outside to the seating area. It should be noted that this whole room could if necessary be divided into two separate rooms. Our client has used it as further bedroom space occasionally when needed. This level also comprises of another bedroom and a shower room/WC with electric shower. The hallway area leads through to the integral workshop/utility room which is a large space with power and light. The large workbench we are informed will stay as part of the sale.
The Granary has much character throughout including beamed ceilings, slate cills, wood panelled walls and flooring, 'A' frame beams and traditional window openings, as well as Velux roof windows which assist effectively in providing further natural light.
Externally, the property is accessed towards the end of a private shared lane. There is a driveway which provides off road parking for up to three cars. Access to the gardens can be via a door or gate. The grounds are a key component of the property as they are private, sheltered and well enclosed. They are ideal for those with pets or children to consider. A number of large shrubs and bushes provide a blaze of colour all year round. There are many young specimen trees as well, which add to the sheltered and private feel.
A crazy paved seating area is the perfect place for enjoying a drink or meal when the weather allows and to capture the afternoon and evening sunshine. There is a pond, outside tap, light and many gravelled paths which meander their way through the garden with railway sleepers as steps.
At the top of the garden is the vegetable patch which yields fine produce each year and there is a useful garden shed. Adjacent is the large detached block built studio which is a substantial part of the property. It occupies a good spot at the end of the garden and therefore can provide escapism. It has been used as an artist/craft studio where a local group had been meeting (pre-Covid). It has power, light and water connected and is a wash of natural light through its glazed roof. If buyers are required or wish to work from home the studio would make a good space for that or it could become a games/hobbies room or just a luxury garden retreat!
