About this property

  • Greenacre is a period village house, dating from the 18th century, offering substantial accommodation throughout.

    The ground floor provides a sitting room with a log burning stove, a dining room with fireplace and a large double aspect drawing room also with a fireplace. Beneath the dining room is a cellar, accessed via a hatch.
    The traditional kitchen has a gas-fired Aga and, off the hall, a larder.

    On the first floor is a spacious master bedroom with en suite bathroom, as well as 4 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    Bedroom 2 is to the rear and has access off the landing as well as its own staircase direct to the drawing room. This room, with lovely views across the valley, could be used as a further reception room.

    The house is set back from the road by a stone wall and small garden with the vehicular access to the side. To the rear is a paved terrace leading to the integral garage and workshop, both of which might offer scope to convert to additional accommodation subject to the necessary consents. Beyond is the lawn with steps down to a lower garden and then the mature orchard below with a brook at the bottom of the valley.
