Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An enchanting property with a number of outbuildings now in need of some refurbishment, set in a stunning countryside location, with far reaching views in its own grounds of approximately 18 acres.

Greenlands is a charming and characterful listed grade II stone built property, which originally would have been thatched but now has a clay tile roof. The property has been in the same family for several generations and the current owners of 18 years have made a number of improvements to Greenlands including the addition of solid oak timber framed garden room made with oak from their own woodland, the addition of wood burning stoves in the garden room and sitting room, converting the old cider shed and garage into what is now a downstairs bedroom with a mezzanine dressing area. There is a good size kitchen with a solid fuel Rayburn, which aside from being used for cooking also provides heat and hot water. Leading off of the kitchen is a utility / cloak room / shower room and a larder cold room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The whole house is now in need of some renovation and improvements and would be a fantastic project.

Outside there are a number of wonderful outbuildings. The first directly behind Greenlands is the former dairy building. This is a stone built barn with a clay tile roof. The old dairy has water and electricity and a mezzanine room. To the side of the dairy is a store room which currently houses the water filtration unit, and the water well is just outside the old dairy building. To the other end of the old dairy barn is a sheltered area currently used as a lambing shelter but could be a very nice covered outside terrace if the barn was fully converted. To the back of the property is a good sized woodshed. To the side of the property is another outbuilding, formerly pigsties with concrete floors which could lend itself to a number of different uses. Next to the old pigsties is an old beach hut used previously as a chicken shed. Beyond the old pigsties is the old slaughter house, which still has the gully in the middle and old hoist wheel that would have been used to raise the animals, to the side is the original starving room, and further additions of a work shop at one end, a sheltered area at the other end and a tractor shelter / garage. To the front of Greenlands is an orchard planted with numerous different varieties of fruit. Further on is the former milking parlour which could have its own access and own 3 acre field. As with all of the outbuildings here, and subject to planning permission there are so many possibilities in terms of conversion to create income potential. As you turn from the road into Greenlands, on the righthand side is an original garage and lean to, and on the opposite side by the entrance is the current cider barn, with shed attached. This is of stone construction and has a concrete floor, with mezzanine level and could easily be converted into additional accommodation again subject to normal planning requirements.
The property sits in the middle of its own plot in just shy of 18 acres. This includes 5 parcels of pasture including the orchard and 1 parcel of woodland.

This is an extremely exciting opportunity to renovate a beautiful house and numerous outbuildings in this beautiful setting.
