Greystone House, which was also formerly known as Wester Greystone, dates from the 1880s. It was built as the manse for the nearby former church, which at one time was the Carmyllie Free Kirk. It was used as a manse up until the mid 1950s. The house was extended in the 1960s and was acquired by the sellers in 1996.
It is a most attractive and imposing house, retaining much of its original features and character, including cornicings and panelled doors. It benefits from spacious and well laid out accommodation, and is ideal for both entertaining and for modern family living. The house is stone built, with a slate roof. The first floor extension to the rear is timber clad with a recently renewed flat roof. Since acquiring the property the owners have converted the garage into a games room, installed UPVC double glazing into many of the windows and undertaken refurbishment works, including upgrading the en suite shower rooms. The two main reception rooms, currently used as a drawing room and sitting room, are accessed off the hallway. A family room and the dining kitchen create an ideal informal living space, which is linked to the gardens by two sets of French doors. The stairs lead up to two landings. The master bedroom, with its en suite bathroom and dressing room, and the two en suite bedrooms are reached from the front landing. At a slightly lower level the rear landing gives access to two further bedrooms and a shower room, together with a study. Just behind the house is a games room.
Stone gate pillars with wrought iron gates open onto a gravelled drive which leads up to the front and side of the house.
Steps up to wooden front door with glazed overlight to hallway, drawing room, sitting room, family room, cloakroom, dining kitchen, utility room, master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom, two bedrooms with en suite shower rooms, two further bedrooms, shower room, study.
At the back of the house is a stone built range of buildings with a slate roof. This originally comprised garaging but has been converted to a games room with Velux roof lights, exposed beams and electric panel heating. This could make a useful office if required. Also within this range are a boiler room with Boulter boiler and oil tank, and a workshop/store with stone flag floor. Behind is a lean to dog kennel with run.
Linking the games room to the house is a paved patio, which continues on round to the east of the house, where there is a sheltered seating area with a barbecue and rose arbour, and which is linked to the kitchen.
The attractive and sheltered gardens are mainly to the front and east of the house. In front they mainly comprise lawns and are enclosed by shrubs and trees. A bridge over a small burn give access to a further area of garden with shrubs, trees and fruit trees. Behind the house is an extensive wooded area with many fine beech trees.
The church is available in addition.
