Cellar: From the hallway stone steps lead down into a vaulted keeping cellar, displaying the original stone slab table, meat hooks and stone shelving
First Floor: At the top of the stairs you have an Annex Bedroom & Sitting Room. The first room is dressed as a double bedroom and benefits from a bank of built-in cupboards running along one side of the eaves and its own vanity unit with hand wash basin inset. Overhead beams run the length of the pitched ceiling and a roof light allows natural light to enter, along with a porthole window to the side. A door then leads through to a second room which could be used as an annex sitting room, a 6th bedroom, or perhaps has potential to add en suite facilities and a dressing room (subject to the relevant consents). This room features a cast iron fireplace to the wall, a continuation of the pitched ceiling and beams present in the neighbouring room and a further porthole window.

On this floor you also have a utility room, two separate w/c's, a sauna and a truly remarkable family bathroom with four piece suite where yet again no expense has been spared.
Externally: A huge attraction of Greenacres is the extensive grounds it is nestled within, a pillared entrance driveway leads up to a stone flagged patio parking area and a further tarmacked parking area to the rear, together offering parking for 7 or more cars. To the front is a large stone flagged patio with planted borders and a slightly raised circular pond, this then adjoins the side patio which has an established planted rockery to one side. A pathway then leads through woodland to the old tennis lawns which is shielded to all sides by woodland and a banking, thus increasing the privacy levels further. A large area of the grounds has been left untamed for a selection of wild flowers and bluebells to grow, and to encourage a variety of wildlife to visit. Following the stone path way round, this rises to a set of stone steps which lead up to a brick built gazebo and to the established vegetable garden including a strawberry patch, with the old footings of a greenhouse.
Garage: To the rear of the property beneath the annex accommodation is an integral single garage, having a mechanics pit within and an up and over garage door. Next to the garage is a stone built log store.
