About this property

  • Positioned in the centre of the small village of Five Ash Down, Greenfields is an attractive modern house believed to date from the 1960s, offering over 2,850 square feet of well proportioned, spacious accommodation over three floors.

    There are three reception rooms on the ground floor. The sitting room has a bay window and brick fireplace with inset gas-fired stove; double doors open to the large dining room beyond, which is in turn open to a light-filled family room with gas-fired stove and doors to the garden, offering a versatile space ideal for family living. Both the dining and family room adjoin the spacious kitchen, which has a good range of wooden units, a range oven, walk-in pantry and ample space for a breakfast table. Lying off the kitchen is a cloakroom with space and plumbing for a washing machine.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor served by two bathrooms (both with baths and separate shower cubicles), one of which is en suite to the principal bedroom. The fifth bedroom is on the second floor, and has access to a number of eaves storage spaces. The accompanying floor plan gives a comprehensive overview of the full extent and layout of the house.

    Greenfields is well set back from the road, approached through tall, electronically-operated timber gates which open to a large block paved driveway, flanked by areas of lawn. The driveway leads to the attached tandem garage and store, which extends along the entire northern side of the house.

    The west-facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a slightly raised, paved terrace lying adjacent to the house, from which there are lovely views down the garden over the open fields beyond. To the rear of the garaging is a useful outside WC, and a timber pergola offering a covered outdoor entertaining area.
