Greenways is an attractive thatched farmhouse in Devon dating back to medieval times in a secluded setting near Honiton. Listed Grade II, the house has lots of the appropriate features one would expect from its age, including a fine inglenook fireplace in the drawing room, heavily beamed ceilings, exposed ceiling and wall timbers and a newly thatched roof.

The house has been recently restored and is in excellent condition throughout. Accommodation comprises: canopy entrance porch, hall, cloakroom, snug, drawing room, study, garden room, kitchen/dining room and sitting room, downstairs. Upstairs are the principal bedroom suite and two further en-suite bedrooms, plus two further guest bedrooms and a family bathroom. A spacious guest apartment is located in the detached barn.

Outside, a deep terrace extends across the front of the house. The lawns are studded with mature trees and stretch in front of the property, leading down to a pond with a summer house. Further lawns lie to the rear and a greenhouse provides an ideal site for a kitchen garden. The grounds come to nearly three acres.

Greenways is located within the Devon village of Cotleigh, at the foot of the Blackdown Hills in the heart of the wooded farmland of East Devon. The village has a church and a village hall, and there is a pub in the nearby village of Wilmington, around two miles away. Honiton is just over two miles, and Taunton around 22 miles.
