About this property

  • Cradlebush 47 Greenhill Road is a charming family home dating from the late 1920s and owned by the current family for over 40 years. The house provides an excellent opportunity for the incoming purchaser to refurbish, update and remodel subject to the necessary building regulations. Of particular note is the elevated position which allows the far reaching southerly views to be enjoyed from the house and the grounds.

    The front door has an attractive covered porch and leads to the hall with exposed wooden flooring, a cloakroom, stairs rising to the first floor and an under stairs cupboard.

    There are three reception rooms, all with wonderful far reaching views. The impressive sitting room is triple aspect with a large bay window to the side, a window seat and a fire place with gas fitment. The dining room has direct access to the rear terrace and there is a study which is double aspect.

    The kitchen/breakfast room has a view to the rear garden and is fitted with a range of storage cupboards and a larder. There is an oven and space for a fridge freezer. An adjoining side porch has access to the outside and a utility room with storage and space for appliances.

    There are five bedrooms on the first floor, four with superb southerly views. Three also have fitted or built-in wardrobes.

    The family bathroom has an airing cupboard and completes the accommodation.

    The house is approached over a long drive which leads to the parking area and two detached garages.

    The gardens are principally laid to lawn with established and well stocked beds and borders. There is a terrace to the south providing an ideal area for outside entertaining and to enjoy the views. A path leads around to the rear garden where a greenhouse is located. The lawns lead to the woodland area which is planted with deciduous and evergreen trees, and a level area where a tennis court was once located.
