Property Snapshot

Proudly standing as a dominant part of the Bridgnorth skyline, The Old Granary is an imposing residence dating back to the 18th century. Many of its Georgian characteristics have been maintained, enhanced and exploited to create a one-of-a-kind family home.

Set in St. Leonards Close the property is surrounded by several residences which played a crucial part in the town's rich history. This includes St. Leonards Church, which was once an ammunition store for Cromwell's troops during the Civil War, catastrophically destroyed after being hit by a cannon shot causing an explosion which swept through the town.

This extraordinary property has been carefully and thoughtfully renovated with appreciation towards the design, resulting in a high specification home, which makes the most of the incredible views to the rear of the house overlooking the river and countryside beyond.


Entrance
Surrounded by wrought iron gates and shaded by mature trees and shrubs, a herringbone path leads up to the black front door featuring a semi-circular stained glass window above.

The property opens into a long entrance hallway, featuring warm wooden floors and a pitched glass roof that fills the room with natural daylight.

To the side of the hallway is a convenient cloakroom and another door flows straight ahead leading onto the first-floor landing.


First-floor landing
Adorned with high ceilings the landing grants access to three double bedrooms, and has a staircase to the ground floor and second floor.


Ground floor
A magnificent curved staircase flows into the spacious music room where the high ceilings continue throughout the ground floor accommodation.


Music room
Characterful timber floors add charm to the room and a floor-to-ceiling window helps create a light and airy atmosphere. Doors lead into the sitting room, dining room, and games room, and an exterior door leads out to the terrace.


Sitting room
Situated to the rear of the property is the formal sitting room which includes a huge bay window that overlooks the gardens and has views stretching across the River Severn.

The wooden floors continue into this room where many period features have been retained including Victorian coved ceilings and a statement open cast iron fireplace with limestone mantle.


Dining room
Accessed from the music room is the generously sized dining room featuring parquet flooring and another huge bay window. There is a cast iron fireplace and ample room for a ten-plus seater dining table making it the perfect place to host dinner parties.


Kitchen
Just off the dining room is the wonderful country-style kitchen with cream cabinets, wooden work surfaces, a lovely cream Aga and ample space for a breakfast table. Several windows, including a large sash window to the rear and another more decorative arched window adjacent to the sink, brighten the room.

A stable door from the kitchen leads outside where there is a useful utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.


Games room
Tucked away at the front of the property is a quirky games room with many captivating period features including exposed beams to the ceiling and walls, red terracotta tiled flooring and the original cast iron stove set in a brick surround.

An external door offers the potential to convert the space into an annexe.


Cellar
Just off the games room is a downstairs WC, a wine cellar and another utility room where a set of stairs lead down into a historic cellar built into the sandstone providing ideal storage space.


Master bedroom
The luxurious master suite is situated at the rear of the property and has a huge bay window exploiting the incredible views across the river and countryside beyond.

There are high ceilings throughout the suite and charming timber floors.


An arched doorway flows into the dressing area complete with a bath surrounded in marble tiles, a vanity unit with matching marble work surfaces and a large sash window.
Just off the spacious dressing area is the ensuite shower room with a walk-in rainfall shower and a wash basin.


Bedroom two
Another luxurious bedroom sumptuously carpeted with an identical huge bay window to the master bedroom.

This bedroom also benefits from its own modern Jack and Jill ensuite with a large walk-in shower, a copper freestanding rolltop bath, a WC and a double washbasin. A large sash window looks out over those breathtaking views.


Bedroom three
To the front of the property is bedroom three, another double bedroom with a window to the front, an ensuite bathroom and built-in wardrobes.

Steps lead up to the ensuite which has iconic checkerboard tiled floors, a bath, WC and washbasin.


Bedroom four
Stairs adjacent to bedroom three lead up to the second floor where the final bedroom is located.
This double bedroom has been built into the eaves exposing the charming timber beams and having a sloped ceiling to one side.

The bedroom has its own ensuite featuring a bath, a WC and a wash basin with a vanity unit beneath.


Loft room
From the second-floor landing, another staircase grants access to the loft room which is a huge space that spans the entire length of the house. Three Velux windows and four further windows make the space light and airy.

This space is currently utilised as a storage room, but is fully fitted with electrics, allowing for the possible conversion into a home office, studio or gym.


Gardens and grounds
This wonderful property is complemented by an impressive garden extending to 0.54 acres. The garden has been tiered into sections to make the most of the outstanding views beyond.

The first part of the garden is perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining on the patio, which extends across the rear of the property and is surrounded by wrought iron railings.

There are also two striking palm trees on this level and plenty of space to display potted plant collections.

A pathway wraps around the side of the building, where there is a further patio and a lawned garden featuring an ornamental pond.

Leading off from the main patio, there are steps to the centre, framed by a wrought iron archway highlighting the stunning views and accessing the next tier, which can also be accessed via a set of steps to the side of the lawned garden.

There is an array of mature planting, shrubbery and trees, with lawned areas between. The left side of this tier has been paved and includes a delightful sunroom.

There is a further tier at the bottom featuring a larger lawned area, which is extremely private and bordered by mature shrubs and trees including some fruit-bearing trees.

As a whole, the gardens and grounds offer a tranquil place to relax and take in the far-reaching and ever-changing views throughout the seasons.
