Owners Comments

“This has been a wonderful family home which has been large enough for us all to enjoy our private space with the versatility of the reception rooms on the ground floor. The lane is so tranquil and safe and has been a delight for the children whilst growing up with the nature reserve and footpath to the playing fields on our doorstep. The garden enjoys full sun all day in the summer and has been the host to many family gatherings.”


A fine country home occupying a secluded position in one of the area's premier addresses. Greenways is a credit to the current owners having been elegantly refurbished to provide a stylish family residence with generous living accommodation and a host of attractive features. The kitchen living room has been beautifully designed and crafted and all the bathrooms feature luxurious sanitary ware and tiling but it is the excellent proportions of room sizes that make this such a lovely home. Constructed in 2000 by renowned local developer Drew Smith, the property rests in gardens in excess of 1/3 acre which offer a high degree of privacy and seclusion and is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the easy commuting and excellent local schooling. Church Lane is one of the area's most sought after destinations enjoying tranquillity and privacy with a wealth of picturesque walks and village activities.


The grand front door opens into the impressive hallway where oak flooring flows through to the principal reception rooms. The house has been considerately designed to accommodate generous storage and includes large understairs cupboard and cloaks hanging space. The sitting room is triple in aspect with bifold doors to the rear garden. It is centred upon a feature stone fireplace with marble hearth and inset woodburning stove. Expensive fitted shelving adorns one wall with courtesy lighting. The dining room is spacious and formal but could also be combined with the kitchen living room if required. The recently fitted kitchen is simply stunning. Stylish light grey cabinets and white granite worktops provide an elegant finish and there are generous cupboards and drawers. The sizeable central island facilitates further storage as well as informal breakfast bar dining. Integrated appliances include a Rangemaster electric stove with induction twin ovens and warming drawers with extractor over. There is also a tall fridge and separate freezer. The tiled flooring flows into the breakfast area which enjoys bifold doors to the garden and access to the utility room, providing further storage, plumbing for appliances and doors to the garden and double garage. The study/family room is also of excellent dimensions and the ground floor is complemented by the refurbished cloakroom. A feature quarter twist staircase ascends to a light and vast landing hosting the airing cupboard and loft access.

The master bedroom is tastefully decorated and features an exquisite walk in dressing room and beautiful ensuite bathroom which comprises contemporary freestanding bath, double shower cubicle, wash hand basin with white gloss cabinet and low level WC. Bedroom two also benefits from a lovely refitted ensuite shower room and ample storage/wardrobe space.

The property is approached via a five bar gate and gravel driveway fronting the double garage and providing generous parking and turning for several vehicles. Well screened from the road by mature hedgerow there is a small lawned front garden studded with trees and shrubs with attractive well stocked borders leading to the covered porch which also serves as a useful log store. The rear garden is beautifully secluded by mature trees, shrubs and hedgerow and offer an idyllic entertainment or relaxation venue.

Church Lane is a most tranquil but sociable lane hosting large attractive individual family homes with the footpath to the nature reserve and recreation ground. It is one of the village's most sought after destinations.
