Whether to use as a holiday let, to set up your perfect ‘work from home’ environment or for multi generational living, annexes have become a key focus for country house buyers for a variety of reasons. We have had a look through our property portfolio to show you some of our homes which boast some lovely ones, or have the potential to create one…
Stoneleigh – Priory Court
In the very heart of the attractive village of Geddington, stands this very handsome, Grade ll listed property, originally part of the Priory next door. Dating back to 1618, the property has exceptionally high ceilings and large windows shedding a vast amount of light into all the rooms, which is very unusual for a building of such an age. The attached garage is an ideal spot to create an annexe – subject to planning. Read more
The Coach House – Colsterworth
The Coach House has a two bedroom annexe located in the original main entrance to the coach house. The annexe contains a cosy living room with a log-burner, a brand new fitted kitchen with space for dining and a door onto the garden, a downstairs bathroom, with stairs to two bedrooms and WC. There’s also access into a single garage with its automatic vehicle door – offering the ideal space to generate an income via AirBnB for example, or even create a luxury office. Read more
Zetland House – Little Bytham
In an elevated position with an outlook of the surrounding rolling landscape, Zetland House is a very substantial, beautifully presented house offering: 7 bedrooms, 7 reception rooms and a total of almost 5,000 square feet of accommodation. The annexe has three bedrooms upstairs, the master a light-filled, south-facing room with double doors onto a Juliet balcony where the countryside views are superb. It also enjoys an en suite and a walk-in dressing room. The other two bedrooms, one perhaps a study, share a Jack and Jill bathroom. Downstairs, the space is divided primarily in two with a hallway in between. On one side, a spacious dual aspect kitchen dining room has views of the formal garden in front of the cattery and doors to the outside on two aspects. On the other, to the south, a huge living room linking with a dining area is down steps and has bi-folding doors onto some raised decking providing a wonderful connection between the inside and outside. A utility room is alongside. Read more
Old Welland Cottage – Spalding
This is an immaculate Georgian property with big Victorian bays, and for a large part of the C20th operated as The Welland Inn. The one bedroomed annexe has separate access from outside – actually designed for a wheelchair with all the internal doors extra wide to accommodate one. It also has its own kitchenette, separate shower with basin and WC and a large bedroom with French doors onto a patio. A low brick wall enclosing this paved area could easily form (subject to planning) the base of a sunroom extension providing a sitting room. The annexe is a superb asset as it could allow either an elderly parent to live alongside or a young adult child, waiting to step onto the property ladder, some independence, or even be let out.
