DESCRIPTION The Granary is a very impressive 19th Century grade II listed barn conversion being one of three that are set around a lovely courtyard in this peaceful semi rural setting of Moor Green.
The property has been cleverly converted to form a wonderful family home with well proportioned rooms, exposed timbers and brickwork, vaulted ceilings and far reaching views over the gardens and countryside beyond.
"One of the joys of living here is the convenience of being able to walk straight out of ones home into wonderful countryside without needing to go near a road". says the owner. "We can also leave the house and be in London's King cross station within the hour"
In recent years the owners have also converted a substantial outhouse into an excellent self contained annexe/studio, ideal for those who work from home or need additional accommodation away from, but close to, the main home.

Stairs rise up to the galleried landing and there are doors into the principle reception rooms and the good size kitchen/breakfast room.

The attractive courtyard in turn provides ample parking for the barn and leads to the TRIPLE GARAGE with light and power connected. There is a useful log store and the courtyard is attractively landscaped and planted.
In addition to the garage the present owners have converted another former barn into a substantial STUDIO/ANNEXE that is ideal for those who need space away from the main house for work or other reasons.

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with numerous trees and shrubs and a lovely decked family/entertaining area close to the back of the house. The gardens are enclosed by natural hedges and fencing and are a delight for young families and keen gardeners alike.
