About this property

  • Greenacres offers an attractive mix of original character and contemporary design. The property's charming exterior appearance belies a stunning contemporary refurbished interior, with open plan entertaining spaces that link excellently on the ground floor, providing access to the garden, both at the front and rear of the house.

    At the heart of the house, there is a stunning kitchen and breakfast room that has been extensively fitted with a range of bespoke units and corian worktops, incorporating the best quality Miele appliances. There is a central island unit, wood burning stove, a lovely breakfast area with bay window and seat and a door leading through to the boot room. To the rear of the kitchen is a secondary kitchen area leading through to the conservatory.

    The double height vaulted reception hall provides an impressive entrance to the house. The ground floor reception rooms have beautiful polished wooden floors complemented by plenty of natural light, with the entrance to the study accessed via the drawing room, cleverly concealed by a bookcase. The kitchen/breakfast room links to the family sitting room and stunning conservatory, both with access to the terrace at the rear of the house.

    On the first floor, there are five bedrooms, with the generously sized principal bedroom enjoying an en suite bathroom and large connecting dressing room. There are four further bedrooms, three with en suite shower rooms and one en suite bathroom. There is potential to change the layout on the first floor if required, which is currently cleverly arranged with a separate guest wing, with its own staircase.

    The indoor pool complex occupies an impressive section of the house, with mirrored walls and an impressive mosaic-tiled pool. There is also a concealed storage/changing area with a changing room and shower. The swimming pool is currently covered by a temporary floor to make for a much larger gymnasium facility. There is a further gym area with access to the gardens via sliding doors.

    Greenacres is approached through secure electrically operated wooden gates, with the driveway leading to a wide parking and turning circle, together with a double garage complex and annexe flat above. At the front of the house, on the easterly side, there is a spacious raised terrace, with steps down to the tennis court with herbaceous borders and trees. The lawn sweeps around to the rear of the house and rises gently to the western boundary, bordered by laurel hedging. To the north of the house is a large shed/implements store with boiler room and bin store.
