Situation - Greenaleigh Farm occupies one of the most unique settings with some of the finest panoramic sea views found within the Exmoor National Park. This lovely property is situated in an elevated position with amazing views across the pebble beach and over the water of the Bristol Channel to the south coast of Wales. Just under two miles from the centre of Minehead and approached along a lane, the house stands in its own secluded grounds of 2.11 acres, which is made up mainly of gardens and woodland. The property also enjoys the tenancy of the neighbouring coastline of 29.78 acres.
The popular coastal resort of Minehead, being the principal town of West Somerset, provides a wide range of shopping, banking and schooling, together with hospital and dental facilities and regular bus services. It also caters for various leisure interests including an 18-hole Golf Course and marine activities. Minehead is situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park close to some of the best moorland and woodland countryside where walks and other country pursuits can be enjoyed.
The County town of Taunton is 27 miles away and has extensive retail and commercial facilities, together with access to the M5 and a mainline station with fast trains to London. There are three independent schools, a theatre and the Somerset County Cricket Ground.

Description - Greenaleigh Farm is of historic and architectural importance and enjoys privacy and outstanding uninterrupted views over the coastline. The delightful farmhouse has spacious and flexible accommodation on three floors. Attached is a beautifully refurbished holiday letting cottage and there is a further converted barn in front with the future potential for letting. The property is approached along a one mile track giving solitude and seclusion.

On the lower ground floor there are two further bedrooms and two shower rooms and doors to a front patio and lawn.

Outside - Each element of this amazing property has its own area of terrace or garden with wonderful views across the beach and sea.

Two walled yards provide sheltered seating or parking space. The traditional stone outbuildings provide storage and could be converted for use as stabling (subject to the necessary planning permission).
