Full Details FULL DESCRIPTION Set high upon the hillside above the village of Marsden resides this superb detached property. Peace and tranquillity will strike as you arrive. Greystones Farm has been recently extended and extensively redesigned into the absolutely stunning home you see today. High levels of craftsmanship and quality of both fixtures and fittings are apparent throughout this beautiful home. The private and secluded gardens have also been professionally landscaped. There are lawns to the front and side, all with breath-taking views of the surrounding moorland and the rolling hills of the Pennines and Colne Valley. Although Greystones Farm occupies this lovely semi-rural position, it is only a short walk into the picturesque village of Marsden; its station provides easy access to the national rail and bus networks. There are good local schools and the location also provides easy commuting by car to the A62 and Manchester, as well as the M62 motorway to Manchester, Leeds and beyond. ABOUT GREYSTONES FARM This fabulous, random stone built detached home enjoys a semi-rural position nestled next to National Trust moorland in the tiny hamlet known as Scout, high above the village of Marsden. The property has recently been totally transformed, mainly by the addition of a ground floor extension that has created a stunning open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. With the aid of an interior designer, it provides an absolutely stunning living space with tremendous views, courtesy of several picture windows and bi-folding doors leading out onto a large patio area offering a truly magnificent inside/outside living space. The rest of the accommodation has also benefitted from upgrading. The decoration is immaculate and finished with high quality carpets and flooring throughout. An extensive range of fitted wardrobes have also been added to two bedrooms and the office/study has a full range of custom built-in furniture.
