THE AGENTS SAYS...
The Matchbox is accessed on foot from Greenhill with the
front door opening to the sitting room with exposed
floorboards and fireplace housing a wood burning stove
and fitted storage built either side. From here a door leads
through to a good size kitchen/breakfast room, recently
refitted with a beautiful Laura Ashley shaker style kitchen,
including granite worktops, belfast sink, flagstone flooring
and integral dishwasher and oven, there is a door from
here to the rear garden and to the bathroom which has a
white suite comprising bath with shower over, wash hand
basin and separate WC.
On the first floor are two good size double bedrooms, one of which features an en-suite with basin and WC and the other has a large fitted cupboard. From the front bedroom there is a wooden loft ladder providing access to the loft space which is currently used for storage and used by the previous owners as an occasional artists studio making use of the light through the velux windows.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
There is a pathway adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room
with outside store and steps leading to a pleasant paved
seating area and to a further area of garden which has been landscaped and well stocked with a variety of shrubs and flowers, providing a peaceful backdrop for the garden. At the far end is a gate out to the allocated parking space,
which is accessed from Priestlands Lane.
Greenhill mainly comprises attractive period properties of
differing architecture and is situated adjacent to the Green
