Ryder and Dutton offer for sale this large stone built country house situated within the exclusive Shepherds Green in picturesque Greenfield.

This magnificent and imposing Grade II Listed Weavers cottage is constructed in local coursed gritstone beneath a pitched grey slate roof and is a fine example of its type within the locality having mullioned frames and exposed beams in many of the rooms. It occupies a large mature garden plot and enjoys superb aspects over the surrounding area.

The Old Vicarage comprises a three storey house constructed over 200 years ago and has been subsequently extended to provide an additional wing to the rear. It was used as a vicarage until approximately 110 years ago and now provides excellent well proportioned versatile family accommodation. Shepherds Green is arguably the best rural position in the Saddleworth area. The landscape is softened with beautiful mature woodland and the property enjoys an open outlook to the front, side and rear where it abuts farmland. The views to the front are delightful, overlooking the foot of Chew Valley which contains Dovestones Sailing Club.

The property has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment with particular attention to detail to create an immaculate, stylish home with all the conveniences of modern living yet retaining its original character.

The main entrance is to the front of the property and features a large central hallway with window seat with lovely views to the rear garden. A particular feature of note is the gallery from the first floor that creates a light and airy feel and there is beech wood block flooring throughout the principal ground floor rooms. There are double doors leading off to two large reception rooms which are ideal for formal entertaining. The dining room provides access to a very useful utility room with built in microwave, ideal for food preparation and serving without the need to use the main kitchen. Beyond this there are also a gym, wine cellar and a superb home cinema entertaining room with control 4 speaker system throughout the principal rooms.

The upper ground floor has the master bedroom suite which has been tastefully and stylishly fitted out with double dressing rooms and contemporary en-suite bathroom and galleried landing. Also on this level is the upper ground floor wing incorporating a breakfast area which opens out to a superb fitted 'Siematic' kitchen complete with central island, 'Corian' work surfaces, integrated appliances including two fridges, induction hob and 'Karndean' flooring. There is also a utility room, guest wc and pantry. There is external access and double doors which open onto a lovely garden/day room with feature fireplace and dual aspect window seats and Velux windows allowing in plenty of natural light making this a superb room in which to enjoy the views over the gardens.

Gas central heating is installed and the window frames have all been replaced with double glazed units.

At second floor level there are three further bedrooms, all tastefully decorated and a second re-fitted bathroom/wc with shower.

Externally the property is set within approximately two thirds of an acre and has been tastefully landscaped to provide substantial mature gardens including large Coy Carp pond, flower beds well stocked with a many different plant specimens and two raised vegetable beds. The gardens are bounded by stone walling and access is via a stone set drive sweeping driveway with remote controlled gates leading to a parking area and a detached stone built garage 18' x 19'10'' with electric up-and-over door and a useful storage area. There is also a flagged courtyard with pergola with views to the rear garden and flagged seating area.

This property represents a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family house located in the Shepherds Green area of Greenfield which has been fastidiously maintained and improved by the present owners and is a particularly good example of the Weavers style properties of the 18th century.
