The conversion and extension of the Old Granary was completed in 2019 and the building is stone-built with, in the main, a dark pantile roof. The conversion has been executed to a meticulous standard by experienced builders and no detail or expense has been spared on the interior detail and fixtures. Light permeates the entire conversion and there is a feeling of space throughout. The house has been fully insulated and benefits from an air source heat pump system which provides heating
(underfloor throughout) and hot water.
The balconied entrance hall with oak flooring greets visitors with the bespoke staircase rising to the right and, beyond, glass doors opening onto a
spacious sitting room with a stone fireplace and log burner and French doors opening onto the terrace. To the rear of the hall is a cloakroom and separate laundry room. These elements are all contained within the new build part of the Old Granary.
Moving back through the hall in the opposite direction leads through to a dining room with an intricately built and beautifully lit wine store and, beyond, a garden room with a log burner and French doors. Two large openings with oak lintels lead from the dining room to the bespoke kitchen which is fitted with a central island with a basin, Everhot 120 electric stove, Leibherr fridge freezer and a Belfast sink with a Quooker instant boiling water tap. Beyond the kitchen is an inner hall with a larder and rear stairs and a study beyond.
Upstairs, the principal bedroom occupies the eastern end of the newly built wing. Cleverly designed with the bed oriented to take advantage of the stunning views to the east and the morning sun, the room has bespoke wardrobe units and an en suite. There are a further four bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom.
The Old Granary driveway curves around from the Holywell Road and leads to a generous parking area in front of the oak carport. The drive extends further to the house allowing direct access to the kitchen for ease of unloading shopping. There are terraces outside the drawing room, with a parterre beyond, and the garden room with an adjacent loggia.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with yew hedging and trees planted along the boundary. The paddock extends to the east and more land can be made available by separate negotiation.
The Old Granary is situated just 8 miles to the north of Stamford on the Rutland/Lincolnshire border. The nearest village, just a mile away, is Clipsham which has a renowned gastro pub, The Olive Branch. There are wonderful walks
and footpaths on the doorstep. Local schooling is superb and Witham Hall preparatory school is just 5 miles away with Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford schools all within easy reach.
A choice of train journeys from either Grantham or
Peterborough to London King’s Cross provides excellent commutability.
From Stamford, take the A1 north for about 6 miles until reaching the turn for the B668 signposted to Oakham. Take this turn and it will take you to a T junction. Turn right, following signs to Clipsham. This will take you downhill to a roundabout and take the third turning, under the A1, and then go straight over the next roundabout, again following signs to Clipsham. In Clipsham, after passing the Olive Branch pub, take a right hand turn along Holywell Road. Follow this road for a mile, passing buildings on your right at the mile mark, and The Old Granary’s drive is 100 yards further on your left hand side.
