About this property

  • Green Bank North is a beautiful village house which, despite its many elegant period features, is surprisingly not listed. It is likely the property dates back to the early to mid-1800s and its fine features including high ceilings, large sash windows and an impressive reception hall with a turning staircase and mahogany handrail are typical of the Regency period, as are the rendered elevations, shallow pitched roof and deep soffits.

    This semi-detached property is believed to have originally formed part of a detached house (along with neighbouring Green Bank South) and was the home for the local doctor, hence the 2 former stables in the garden used for the doctor's horses.

    The well-presented and naturally light accommodation is arranged over four floors and one is instantly impressed on entering the stunning and welcoming reception hall with Amtico flooring. There is a spacious sitting room with a marble fireplace housing a remote controlled gas fire; further features include a picture rail, cornicing and pine floorboards. A door leads into the bespoke kitchen with attractive units, quartz composite work surface and integral appliances including a Neff cooker, combination microwave/oven/grill, 4-ring gas hob with an extractor above and a Miele dishwasher. The kitchen has natural stone flooring which extends into the adjoining study/library as well as to the rear boot hall with a shower room off. The lower ground floor provides a laundry room with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and space for a fridge and freezer; there are also comprehensive fitted units, a butler sink, a wine cellar with the original chambers, a Worcester boiler plus a pressurised hot water system.

    There is a mezzanine floor with an attractively fitted bathroom incorporating a large shower cubicle with space to incorporate a bath if required. The main landing has a large sash window affording much natural light to the property, also providing a wonderful outlook over the village and countryside beyond - the landing has previously been used as a study area. There are 2 double bedrooms with the principal bedroom enjoying lovely views over the garden to the rear; this bedroom also has a wall of fitted wardrobes.

    The outside
    Further accommodation is provided by a delightful detached garden room with bi-folding doors onto the garden; this multi-functional room could alternatively be used as a studio or occasional bedroom especially bearing in mind its proximity to the ground floor shower room. Two traditional stables within the garden could be converted to provide an annexe, home office or gym if required (stp).

    The large garden forms a special feature. There is a lovely, colourful front garden with steps leading up to the front door bordered by a well-stocked flower and shrub bed planted for year-round interest; there is also a single off-road parking space - further parking is available along the village road in front. A gated side access leads to the long and private rear garden. The garden room/studio is located close to the side door of the house and has a glorious outlook over the garden. There is a long stretch of lawn interspersed with trees including a Jacquemontii birch with vivid white bark, a black poplar, magnolia as well as espalier fruit trees. The shaped and well stocked flower and shrub beds incorporate a wonderful selection of typical English country cottage flowers including roses, peonies, lillies, irises, wild geranium, lavender and agapanthus. A stepping stone path runs the length of the garden to the traditional stables with an adjoining raised hosta and herb bed.

I love the impressive ceiling heights in this house, it gives such a sense of grandeur, immediately setting the tone for this beautiful village house.
