Greystonelea enjoys a high degree of rural privacy but with easy access to local amenities and Glasgow city centre. The farmhouse has an independent annex with letting potential.
The property is set within grounds of over 3.3 acres of garden and driveway (0.46 acres), grazing (1.1 acres) and woodland, meandering walkways and footpaths (1.81 acres). There are bridges over burns and high-quality fencing has recently been installed, clearly defining the boundaries. There are two paddocks, again newly fenced, with transfer gates, troughs, a water supply and hay feeds. A concrete base of about 18 m2 has been prepared in the corner of one paddock in preparation for a pony shelter or a machine store.
Greystonelea House is thought to date from the early Victorian period and is a two-storey stone-built property under a pitched slate roof. There is a porch and hallway, family room and a conservatory. The conservatory has a log burner and a temperature and rain sensor which remotely controls the roof vents. There is a sitting room, a dining kitchen with an Aga, an office or study, rear hall and a ground floor shower room. There are additional stoves in the sitting room and the family room. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one of which has is en suite, and there is a family bathroom. The ground floor shower room and master en suite bathroom have been retro-fitted, designed by Porcelanosa using their quality fixtures and fittings.
An integral door links through to the Annex which also has an external door making it suitable for independent living or for holiday letting. There is a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom 4 and bathroom.
