The property
Greenhaven is a substantial property built for the current owners in 1985, of timber-framed construction with brick-built exterior. The property offers a wealth of living accommodation and
presents opportunity to convert the first floor “loft room” into a fourth double bedroom with some straightforward room reconfigurations, subject to any consents required.


The accommodation
The front door opens into a welcoming reception hall, having attractive parquet flooring, and doors opening to the principal reception rooms along with access to a cloakroom with WC.


At the heart of the house is the kitchen, fitted with a range of hand-crafted painted solid wood cabinets backed with Fired Earth hand-made tiles, and complementary dresser unit. There is also a
broad range of integral appliances, and ceramic tiled flooring running into a generous and sunny breakfast area, having views to the front courtyard. Off the kitchen is a utility room incorporating
a Belfast sink with base units and plumbing for laundry appliances.


To the rear of the property is a well-proportioned lounge featuring an open Baxi fireplace within a painted carved fire surround with a marble insert and hearth. Large sliding patio doors open to the
rear offering beautiful rural west-facing views looking over to the Welsh Hills. Exterior wind-down sun awning. Large sheltered sunny terrace. The dining room conveniently links to the kitchen
and lounge and opens into a large double-glazed conservatory, offering the best views of the garden and countryside beyond. Occupying the northern wing of the house is a useful ground floor
bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, and benefits from a particularly spacious en suite bathroom with white suite including a shower cubicle with thermostatic shower fitment.


On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both having fitted wardrobes, the master enjoying a vanity sink unit. The large family bathroom is equipped with a three-piece suite, including a bath
with shower fitment over and airing cupboard.
With access from “Bedroom 2” is a large loft room, which could quite easily be converted to provide a fourth double bedroom, with a new access by creating a corridor through the top end of the
family bathroom.
