The Property
Ghyll Bank House is an elegant family home located in an idyllic situation with all the benefits of a peaceful rural location combined with superb ease of access. Built in 2004, the house was highly commended in the DC Build Quality Awards and boasts characterful rooms with traditional features, high ceilings, coving and an impressive fireplace.

The front door opens into the entrance hall with a winding wooden staircase, from this space, the living room, garden room and kitchen can all be accessed, but double doors to the garden room and the verdant views out across the gardens draw the eye through the house to the space behind and flood the house with light. To the left, there is a comfortable reception room with fireplace, and to the right, an airy country kitchen/diner with a modern range stove, traditional shaker style storage and belfast sink. A separate utility room services the kitchen with access from the gardens and a guest cloakroom. To the rear of the kitchen is a carpeted dining room that currently comfortably houses a dining table for six with a large sideboard that completes the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor houses the very impressive master bedroom suite, with a dressing area and modern shower room. There are windows front and rear and characterful touches throughout, from the picture windows to the wrought iron fireplace to traditional column radiators. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, one with a built-in wardrobe and views across the garden and a four-piece family bathroom. The second floor houses two further rooms, currently laid out as one bedroom and one study, a modern shower room and storage room.

Ghyll Bank House sits in gardens that wrap around the house, surrounded by a dry-stone wall. The gravelled driveway toward the house and a brick built double garage. Well-manicured lawns with lush green borders surround the house on three sides- the largest, south-facing garden sits to the rear of the house with a paved dining area.
