Key Details

Please note, this lot is sold by auction on behalf of Tamlyns Residential Sales & Lettings


A wonderful opportunity to purchase an attractive detached house, sitting in grounds of approaching two-and-a-quarter acres, enjoying a delightful situation and views. The property requires renovation and is being offered for sale by Online Auction.

Greystones is thought to have originally been three cottages, more than likely associated with the nearby Manor. Representing a wonderful opportunity, the property is essentially an unfinished project, requiring general renovation and improvement, but offering potential for a fine, rural home.

The accommodation is of good proportions, comprising an entrance hall, three reception rooms, a kitchen, lobby and cloakroom, on the ground floor. The first floor is arranged over split levels, featuring three main bedrooms (two of which are linked), a bathroom and a fourth bedroom/box room.

A particularly lovely feature is the house’s situation, sitting back off the road, accessed by a private driveway and enjoying views to the south of its own land, neighbouring countryside and the Quantock Hills in the distance. The plot is of a good size, measuring approaching two-and-a-quarter acres and is made up of gardens, a paddock and woodland. There is a detached garage, as well as a barn/store.


Stockland Bristol is an attractive village lying approximately six miles to Bridgwater’s north-west and close to the north Somerset coastline. Within the village is a church and the Stockland Sports and Social Club.  The nearby larger villages of Stogursey, Nether Stowey and Cannington provide a range of day-to-day amenities, including primary schools, convenience stores, post offices, and public houses. Bridgwater offers a wider range of facilities, as well as providing fast road and rail access via M5 junctions 23 and 24, and Bridgwater Station respectively.


From Bridgwater, take the A39 to Cannington. Proceed through Cannington, turning right at the War Memorial and follow the road, passing the turnings for Combwich and Otterhampton. Take the next right turn, sign posted for Stockland, following the lane towards the village, where the property will be found on the left, identified by our For Sale sign.
