Greystones is an individually built detached house constructed in the 1960's with attractive Portland stone elevations under a tiled roof. The property is set in delightful formal gardens along with an adjoining paddock and woodland. The accommodation is designed to take full advantage of the uninterrupted and protected views over the Fleet, Chesil Beach the sea beyond and overlooks its own grounds.
Under the current ownership an extensive list of improvements and modernisation has been carried out including re-wiring, re-plumbing, the installation of a new kitchen and bathroom, replacement of the oil fired boiler and high quality replacement double glazed windows and doors. The property is now presented in excellent order throughout and offers generous and versatile accommodation.
On the ground floor is a spacious sitting room and large open plan kitchen/dining room, both of which take advantage of the views across the gardens to the sea. There is also a very useful study/hobbies room that can also be utilised as an occasional bedroom together with downstairs shower room. On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms together with a delightful balcony accessed off the landing area and bathroom.
Properties at The Fleet are rarely available on the open market and internal viewing of this property comes highly recommended.
