Granny Annexes

Properties with ancillary accommodation – be it for Granny, off-spring, home office or letting income – are always in demand.  Our Agents share a selection from across the region.

Planning for your family’s future is challenging.  First time buyers often call on ‘the bank of Mum & Dad’ to purchase their first property – a problem escalated if they are paying rent whilst trying to save for a deposit.  At the other end of the scale, residential care is expensive so having additional space to accommodate a relative living at home could offer many personal and financial advantages.  

Starting at Broadmayne, our Dorchester office are offering a beautifully refurbished 5 bedroom wing of a late Victorian/early Edwardian country house (above), tucked away on the edge of the village in about 1.9 acres, with a 1 bedroom cottage currently used as a holiday let. 

Our Yeovil office have a several properties with annexes.  The delightful 2 bedroom ‘Mole End’ (above) in Montacute comes with a 5 bedroom, 5 reception room 16th Century former farmhouse with garages, workshop and outbuilding in 0.89 acres, all within a stone’s throw of this historic village and it’s amenities.   Within the town, a fine 4 bedroom Victorian House in Grove Avenue (below) comes with a 1 bedroom annexe, and even a swimming pool in the garden! 

At Stocklinch, through our Ilminster office (below), this very 4 bedroom pretty 15th Century has a 1 bedroom coach house, currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.  

Through our Sturminster Newton office, a versatile and spacious house in Hazelbury Bryan comes with a 1 bedroom annexe previously run as a B&B & holiday let with turnover approx. £30,000-40,000 per annum.  Whilst nearby in Marnhull, a wonderful converted chapel (below) with outbuildings and glorious gardens within walking distance of the shop has a 2 bedroom annexe attached. 

Contact your local office, where our residential agents can provide details of properties with extra accommodation, or our letting agents can help if you have self-contained accomodation you are considering letting on a longer term basis. If you are considering building or converting to provide an annexe at your property, our planning experts can guide you through the process.
