Bank House offers the future occupiers of this magnificent dwelling the exciting opportunity to own a piece of the town's history. Dating back circa 1650 this spacious 4 bedroom, grade II listed house presents not only a wealth of character from exposed timbers and stone work to fireplaces and beautiful wooden staircases, but also a pleasant blend of contemporary features finished with modern day family living in mind.
Conveniently located just a stones throw away from the vibrant town centre and offering private off road parking for two vehicles and a large south facing rear garden, Bank House underwent vast refurbishment over all 3 storeys in 2005 and included the addition of the bespoke rear conservatory. The former coach house has also been completely renovated by the previous owners into a superb 1 bedroom self contained annexe. Available with no upward chain, simply put there is very little this impressive characterful home does not offer.
From the entrance hall a door leads right into the cosy sitting room, left into the bright and airy kitchen diner and straight on into the bespoke timber framed conservatory. A wooden staircase rises up towards the first-floor accommodation. Moving on towards the rear of the house and accessed from the entrance hall once more, the utility area poses as a useful addition to Bank House. Fitted with shelving and storage units, a Butler sink and space for appliances, a doorway leads off to the downstairs w.c/shower room. The final door opening from the entrance hall leads into the bespoke timber framed conservatory. A really useful, multi-purpose reception room, the conservatory was added onto the house in 2005 and has modern and quality features.
The first-floor accommodation is made up of 3 bedrooms all of which are doubles, a spacious family bathroom and an office/study. A beautifully preserved wooden staircase rises to the second floor which accommodates the grand master suite. Making up the entire top floor the master suite is split into the bedroom and en-suite bathroom, with feature exposed timber a-frames, flooring and stonework.
The former coach house was fully converted by the previous owners in 2012 to what is now a fantastic self-contained 1 bedroom annexe, which would be ideally suited for an elderly relative, independent child or holiday let/bed & breakfast generating a steady stream of income. Either way this wonderful addition really adds flexibility to the accommodation as a whole and opens the property up to a wide range of potential buyers.
The vast majority of the garden is found behind the property. South facing the rear garden is split levelled and primarily accessed via paved steps from the seating area by the detached annex and conservatory to the main house. Passing decorative flower beds the paved steps soon change into a sun trapped paved patio seating area which leads to a fantastic private entertaining space which boasts a purpose made BBQ & pizza oven. The garden as a whole is largely laid to lawn and stocked with herbaceous borders, a variety of floral beds and mature shrubs and trees perfect for any horticultural enthusiasts to get their green fingers stuck into. Alternatively the garden is more than a sufficient space for children or pets to run around and play in. Located in the far left corner of the garden the property also presents a peaceful, sunken garden, which once again is stocked with a variety of flowers, shrubs and trees as well as a small decorative pond. There is off road parking via a side gated access for 2 vehicles.
