Property flirt! Village house 4-bed
Come take a tour of this property, in a prime rural Warwickshire location, perfect for home working or even a granny flat. Then guess the price!
Looking for a family home but need the extra space to WFH or put granny up? The ‘Old Bakery’ in scenic Lower Brailes has space and potential in spades – but can you guess how much it costs?
Built in the 19th century, the ‘Old Bakery’ is a village house with accommodation across two floors, outbuildings and even its own retail unit.
The outbuildings are built around a huge courtyard overlooked by the village church (talk about bucolic) and currently compromise a massive open store, three store rooms, a workshop and a self-contained annexe (with kitchen, lounge and bedroom). There’s potential (subject to planning) to use the outbuildings and the retail unit for other uses – so plenty of room to make granny comfortable (but not, mercifully, across the landing), open your own business or just have a WFH hideout.
The garden includes lots of little suntraps, a bountiful veg patch and quiet wooded corners.
Downstairs there’s a large drawing room with a feature fireplace and wood burning stove. It’s next to a snug room complete with a feature antique range that actually works!
This rooms leads onto the conservatory, which could look tres chic with a little bit of interiors magic. The glazed vaulted ceilings and French doors leading out onto the garden mean natural daylight floods in – artist’s studio anyone?
The kitchen, complete with double Belfast sink, range cooker and space for a good sized dining table is ripe for a bit of reno and the perfect spot for family get-togethers.
Meanwhile, upstairs the main bedroom, complete with Juliette balcony (just right for that Evita moment), also has a large dressing room and ensuite bathroom.
There’s also a further three excellent-sized bedrooms and two bathrooms – so no queues for the shower in the morning.
Now you’ve whet your whistle, how much do you think it costs? Drop your guesses in the comments below, and then head to the Strutt & Parker website to see if you’re right (no peeking!).
