Description It is understood that, historically, the cottage was the granary for the neighbouring Snape Hall. Whilst predominantly detached, the garden room adjoins the neighbouring property and the rear wall is almost flush with the neighbouring barn conversion. It is predominantly of brick and timber-frame construction with a pantile roof. The property offers spacious accommodation, particularly on the ground floor, that includes an open plan sitting/dining room with adjacent garden room opening to the courtyard patio. In addition is a breakfast room with Aga, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The property appears to be in very good order throughout and in recent years has been refurbished with new plumbing and electrics. In addition, is a stylish kitchen with integrated dishwasher, fridge and range cooker. The Granary stands in particularly pleasant and private grounds with nearly all the windows overlooking the east facing garden or to the south/west facing courtyard area.
