Vendors' thoughts: "Since moving here in 1996 we have come to really appreciate the space offered by the house, both indoors and outside, where in addition to a large garden there are 6 acres of field. The southwest-facing terrace at the rear is a sun trap making an excellent place for entertaining, and also providing privacy by not being overlooked."
In a nutshell: A fabulous and substantial country home in a very beautiful setting.
Greenways is a fabulous and extensive country house, beautifully presented with plenty of character and lovely views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. This versatile house has been a much-loved family home for the last twenty-seven years. The living spaces have been carefully thought out to provide ample room for entertaining alongside cosy corners for quiet evenings and peaceful downtimes. All the rooms have lovely views over the gardens and grounds with an abundance of natural light throughout.
The kitchen/ breakfast room is clearly the heart of the house and a great space to entertain family and friends or enjoy morning coffee at the island. The room is superbly laid out with integral appliances including a Miele dishwasher, an induction hob and a combination microwave oven, and there is plenty of worktop and storage space. The dining area is ideal for everyday informal dining. The sitting room, with French doors to the terrace, is a spacious room. It is lovely and cosy in the winter with the wood burner roaring and ideal for indoor/outdoor living in the summer months. The dining room comes into its own when hosting larger gathering and dinner parties. The family room is perfect for relaxing Sunday afternoons in front of a movie and laid-back evenings with a good book. The utility room, with access to the garden, keeps the piles of washing out of sight and the cloakroom/ boot room comes in handy for muddy wellies after a long country walk!
The first floor comprises five bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom. All the rooms have been very thoughtfully laid out with ample discreet storage.
Outside the terrace is ideal for al fresco dining and summer BBQs and overlooks the garden and large paddock beyond. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with pretty herbaceous borders interspersed with a variety of fruit trees. There is stabling, which includes two loose boxes and a tack room, a pretty summer house and a shed which is useful for storing all the garden tools. The sweeping driveway, with electric gates, leads up to the house and offers ample parking alongside the double garage.
