Believed to date back to the mid 1850's, Greystone Farmhouse is a most attractive detached dwelling presented in excellent order and offering deceptively spacious family accommodation. With many traditional features throughout including original fires, natural wood doors, skirtings, facings and ornate ceiling cornicing. To the front of the property and overlooking the stunning garden grounds is the spacious sun lounge with tiled affect flooring, exposed stone wall and wooden exterior door which leads to the hallway. The bright and spacious hallway provides access to the sitting room, dining room, bedroom and inner hallway and features ceiling cornicing, rose and picture railing. With a bay window to the front, the stunning sitting room has a wood burning stove with tiled hearth and wood mantle, shallow shelved cupboard and ceiling cornicing. The dining room also enjoys a bay window frontage with open fire with stone hearth and wood mantle, picture and dado railing, ceiling rose and cornicing. A double bedroom with shelved cupboard overlooks the rear patio area. An inner hallway provides access to a spacious conservatory with glazed door to the rear patio area, a lovely study with corner set open fire with stone hearth. A large family bathroom enjoys a central position with doors from both the inner and rear hallways and is fitted with a three piece coloured suite with separate shower compartment. The well-proportioned dining kitchen has been fitted with a wide range of wooden base and wall units with tiled work surfaces and a lovely Stanley range oven. With tiled floors there are two storage cupboards and a door to the rear hallway. The rear entrance hallway has a stable style wood door to the rear, tiled floor and door to a large utility room with base and wall units and ample space for white goods.

A carpeted staircase with wooden balustrades from the hallway leads to the mezzanine and first floor hallways with storage cupboard. On the mezzanine level is a lovely, bright double bedroom with three windows and a range of fitted wardrobes. A large landing area on the upper floor with window to the front provides access to the remaining accommodation. There are two spacious double bedrooms, both with windows to the front and the master with a lovely open fire with stone mantle and range of wardrobes. A bathroom with three piece coloured suite and window to the rear completes the accommodation.

The farmhouse stands in beautifully landscaped and maintained gardens which mainly extend to the front and side with a large lawned garden with well stocked flower and shrub borders. Large patio area to the rear with low level walling and water feature with original well. Bounded to the west by mature woodland the gardens really are a true haven to relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings of Greystone.

Situated to the side of the farmhouse is the detached Bothy which has been converted in the past to provide one bedroom ancillary accommodation. Entered via a glazed exterior door into the kitchen with base and wall units and window to the front, the large lounge has three windows and an open fire with tiled hearth and wood mantle. A double bedroom with window to the front provides access to a shower room with two piece white suite.

A double detached garage built around 6 years ago of timber construction has twin, electric up and over doors and benefits from power, light and concrete flooring.

The land surrounding Greystone Farmhouse extends to around 20.86 and all of Grade 3(2) permanet, grazing land and is separated into paddocks and grazing fields with a sand and rubber 40 x 20m menage. All fields are bounded by post and wire fencing with the majority being electric whilst most also benefit from water.

There are around 3.4 acres of mixed woodland to the western boundary which was planted in 1990 & 91 with a range of Beech, Oak and hornbeam planting bounded by Rowan.
