Greenwells Croft is a delightful traditional croft
located in a secluded but accessible position
near Drybridge. The property comprises a
charming traditional croft house which is
likely to date from the 1800’s and which was
comprehensively renovated and extended in
2000. Constructed from stone under a slate
roof with two more recently built tin roofed
extensions, the house provides comfortable
and well laid out accommodation over a single
storey with two excellent attic rooms above.
From a garden footpath, a porch leads into a
well equipped dining kitchen with a range of
wall and floor units, built in cupboards and a
range cooker (solid fuel) which also provides
hot water. A doors leads to an impressive triple
aspect sun room with a full height ceiling and
exposed timber beams. Also accessed from
the kitchen is a bathroom and a passage to
the sitting room which has a wood burning
stove. A ground floor bedroom has an ‘en
suite’ WC which could easily be adapted into
a bathroom subject to obtaining all necessary
consents. A staircase from the passage leads
to two attic bedrooms with south facing Velux
windows. The house has a lovely cosy and
bright atmosphere and is served by a private
water supply, mains electricity and private foul
drainage.

To the rear of the house are three excellent
outbuildings which include a workshop and
two log stores whilst surrounding the property
is a magnificent garden with areas of lawn,
ponds and a wide variety of plants and shrubs.

Extending to just under 10 acres or thereby,
Greenwells Croft has three separate paddocks
which provide excellent grazing of about
2.3 acres and which are nicely secluded and
sheltered by mature woodland. Over the past
20 years, the current owner has planted a
wealth of trees and plants, creating what is now
an idyllic mixed species woodland of about 3
acres with various ponds providing a wonderful
habitat for a plethora of flora and fauna. A
more recently acquired area of commercial
woodland (about 3.5 acres of open ground
and Sitka Spruce) to the south of the dwelling
provides further shelter as well as a source of
firewood for years to come. There is also a
superb timber built barn with a cart shed,
stable (with 2 loose boxes) and craft space /
studio loft space above as well a three excellent
poly tunnels. At the north end of the holding
is a site which offers considerable scope to
create an additional dwelling on site (subject
to obtaining all necessary consents).
