What a contrast. A rather retro 1970’s look with a stylish contemporary interior. If the property was a person you would say that they had an understated but confident manner completely at ease with their capabilities and so it is with Gretaside, a house that is understated and yet eye catching in terms of layout, finishes and décor. At every turn there is something else to consider but the quality on show is simply outstanding and of course where there is character there is often a twist in the tail and this is all about fun.
The property offers over 4500 sq ft of living space this 4 bedroom 4 bathroom home is beautifully balanced with the accommodation all on one level with the bedrooms one wing and the reception rooms in another wing but both together with the linking hallway all looking over a central patio and garden. So often the outside space can disappoint but Gretaside is a quality property set in approx. 4.5 acres.
- Contemporary Architect Designed set in approx. 4.5 acres
- Four Double Bedrooms and En-suite Bathrooms
- Three Garages, Three Stables, Paddock and Menage
- Privately set with Wrought Iron Gated Entrance
Location From Kirkby Lonsdale take the A683 south passing through Burrow and Tunstall instead of turning right to go to Greta Bridge, go straight on towards Burton in Lonsdale. The entrance to Gretaside is approximately 100 metres on the left hand side.
Description A fantastic contemporary architect designed detached house which is anything other than standard with large picture windows overlooking the garden. Accessed through electronic wrought iron gates with three garages and a sweeping driveway with additional ample parking. Those with equestrian interests will be delighted with the three large stables, tack room, paddock and ménage.
Wonderfully placed and unique in almost every way, Gretaside is an eye catching delight.
