Lawns and gardens are set behind low grey stone walls, with a detached Lakeland stone double garage. A handsome home of traditional Lakeland stone, Pattinson design, atop the garage sits a striking clock with weathervane finial.

Make your way to the delightful front porch, with its vaulted ceiling, where there is space to remove coats and boots. Tiled flooring runs through into the welcoming living room and hallway, where spotlighting above lifts this 1920s home into the 21st century. Cream tones to the walls lend the home a classic country feel inkeeping with its heritage. Stealing the scene is the impressive stone fireplace, within which an open fire is inset upon a black hearth.

Beyond, this room opens into the light and bright garden room, where a solid vaulted roof rises up, inset with a chandelier. An opulent space, there is ample room for a ten-seater dining table in here, perfect for festive feasting with a tall Christmas tree.In summer enjoy alfresco celebrations overlooking,and with direct access out to, the stone terrace and manicured garden beyond.

Enjoy leisurely dining at the breakfast table. There are large selection of integrated appliances includes dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge-freezer, wine cooler, with a pull-out bin store set within the island, alongside a salad sink, inset within the remarkable, stunning bevelled edge granite worktop.

A high specification kitchen, storage space is in abundance, with French doors opening out to the garden and incredible views out over the private grounds.Fitted by Tom Howley Exquisite Bespoke Kitchens, each element of this kitchen is a joy to behold.

Returning through the kitchen to a central lobby area, note the built-in storage available, alongside a convenient downstairs cloakroom with wash basin and WC. A warm and welcoming home, Hive heating controls allow you to create the perfect ambient temperature even when away from home.

Accessible for all, downstairs discover a ground floor bedroom, tiled underfoot, with fitted storage builtin either side of the elegant black fireplace. Originally a snug lounge, this bedroom could easily serve as a playroom, office or lounge dependent upon your needs. Verdant views extend out over the perfectly private garden.

Continue across the lounge into a cosy TV lounge , where a curved bay window frames views out over the garden. Carpeted and cosy, this room also features an attractive ornamental fireplace with a gas fire.

Taking the stairs up from the entrance hall, pause on the turn to admire the view from the pretty leaded windows, framed in hardwood and imperceptibly double glazed throughout.

Turning left, next to a deep linen cupboard, sneak a peek at the sumptuous second bedroom. Spacious and serene with cream décor to the walls and ample space for a double bed and wardrobes, this cosily carpeted bedroom offers restorative views out over the rear garden to the woodland beyond from its ensuite bathroom. Tiles extend underfoot, gleaming in the light flowing in through the large leaded window.Featuring a roll top bath with shower head attachment alongside WC, a unique wash basin is set upon a wrought iron pedestal.

Next, make your way into the master suite at the end of the landing, a bright and bountiful bedroom with a uniquely shaped high ceiling, peaked above the lattice leaded window which overlooks the lush lawn and garden below. Capacious in its proportions, there is ample space for a super-king-size bed alongside fitted wardrobes and drawers with a television inset into the cabinetry.

Freshen up in the ensuite, where large, spa-style tiles coat the walls and floor, and an enormous freestanding rolltop bathtub, with shower-head attachment, features alongside twin wash basins, and a separate shower. Enjoy an indulgent soak with a glass of fizz, watching your favourite shows on the television inset within the wall.

A constant source of pleasure from the indoors, step out into the garden from the dining room or kitchen, where a stone patio precedes a large swathe of lush lawn. Perfect for children and pets, this flat, enclosed garden is low maintenance with mature trees, one of which features its own tree swing. Shrubs including a variety of azaleas and rhododendrons add colour and texture to this traditional Lakeland Garden, where outcrops of rock add a picturesque element. Spring bulbs fill the garden with early seasonal colour, before the purple haze of wisteria billows around the windows of the garden room in early summer.

Behind the bottom hedge of the garden, behind it is a private woodland, which is protected by the Pattinson Trust.

Unseen from the road but for the roof, Greystones is a discreet, yet imposing home filled with character and finished to the highest specifications, in a convenient central location. Book your viewing today.
