Property Details

Greystone is a prominent detached residence, on a gently raised corner garden plot, which is immaculately presented and offers a stunning combination of a well proportioned and fully refurbished 5 bedroom family home with a high quality bungalow annexe for a dependent relative. The development and refurbishment has been undertaken with care and attention to detail and Greystone gives the opportunity for an extended family home in an enviable location with amenities and transport on hand and views from the upper floor over the bay. There is an excellent garage block with remote gate and sliding door and separate workroom at the rear, enclosing the sheltered and sunny gardens.

The house, originally designed and built for the City Architect around 1920 and later used by the local doctor as his surgery for many years, is faced in stone and sits under a slated roof. The accommodation gives two excellent reception rooms, a beautifully fitted breakfast kitchen with Aga, laundry/utility room, conservatory, office and cloakroom. The first floor is set out with two double and two single bedrooms and a refurbished family bathroom. The annexe was developed circa 2006 to blend in sympathetically with the original and provides well planned space all on one level with good quality fittings giving bright lounge, well fitted kitchen, double bedroom and wet room/WC. The garden around Greystone offers a neatly tended and well stocked amenity with a sunny sheltered rear paved sitting area.
