Grains Farm is located just to the Cirencester side of Lower Blunsdon along a quiet single track B-Road. The property can be accessed via the main house entrance or there is a separate entrance for the stables and rest of the property. There is a graveled parking area to the side of the house. The side door leads into a bright open plan kitchen/breakfast room/family room, with full bi-folding doors which look out over the gardens and paddocks in the distance. The kitchen has natural stone floors, an oil fired AGA and ample fitted units. There is room for a family sized kitchen table as well as additional sofas etc. There is a utility room adjacent to the kitchen which has an external door leading out to the side terrace and gardens. Through the kitchen is a study/music room and smaller sitting room, which leads onto a large double aspect sitting room with a wood-burning stove. Through the sitting room is a further reception room which leads round to the staircase hall, inner hall and WC and boot room.
The master en-suite looks out over the garden, paddocks and countryside beyond. The bedroom opens out to a dressing room, the en-suite bathroom has both a separate shower and bath. There are three further double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom. Bedrooms 5 and 6 are located on the second floor, bedroom 6 has an en-suite bathroom. Both bedroom 5 and 6 have a separate staircase.
The gardens consist of a good sized vegetable garden with raised beds, cages and cultivated beds, lawns and a spring fed pond.
There is a secondary entrance directly from the public highway which provides access to the triple garage, paddocks, stables and agricultural buildings beyond. Importantly the stables, triple garage and agricultural buildings are located a short walk from the house therefore convenient but allowing the house and gardens to stand separately. There is ample yard and turning space. There are 6 stables plus a tack room, feed room and hay store, there is a large concrete yard in front of the stables. There are two further agricultural buildings located next to the stable yard, ideal for tractor and vehicle storage, hay and straw or any other use to accommodate the occupier.
There are two principal paddocks, both are post and railed and have mains water.
