Property Description

An opportunity to acquire one of the most unique and versatile family homes that has come to the market in quite some time. Greens Close offers a five bedroom detached period home, over 1,100 square feet of outbuildings currently housing a commercial company with a retail use and a derelict stone cottage last inhabited in 1946 and offering great scope.

The total site area is approximately 1.3 acres, subject to survey, with an overall frontage of 360 feet. The area occupied by the outbuildings sits in about half an acre with a road frontage of 230 feet, a large parking area and a large area laid to grass.

This really is a set up that will appeal to anyone wishing to operate a business from home (subject to any necessary official consent) or who may have extensive storage requirements.

The house has been well maintained by the current owners and offers flexible accommodation set over two floors and including, on the ground floor, a spacious quarry tiled entrance hall, a family room with a conservatory office off, a principal sunny, south facing living room with a beamed vaulted ceiling and views over the rear garden, a dining room and a comprehensively fitted and equipped quality kitchen/breakfast room with granite work surfaces. There is also a cloakroom and a large utility room.

The master bedroom is on the first floor with a dressing room and luxury en suite and the added benefit of double doors leading to a balcony with wonderful countryside views. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Domestic hot water is boosted by energy generated from solar panels.

Additional benefits include oil fired central and PVCu double glazed windows. The property is served by an onsite septic tank.

On the exterior there is off road parking to the front and side of the property, in addition to that offered next to the outbuildings, and a side access leading to the rear. The gardens are beautifully established, have many mature fruit trees, are predominantly laid to lawn, and offer many aspects that include a marvellous water feature and a large wooden storage building with a veranda and affectionately referred to as the Ponderosa. At the foot of the garden is a lightly wooded area that reveals a very old dilapidated stone cottage that offers a variety of opportunities, subject to any necessary official consent that may be required.
