Full Details

ABOUT FERNBANK Fernbank House is a substantial stone built detached house which we are informed dates back to 1890 when its construction was commissioned by a prominent local solicitor. In the mid-20th century it was divided into two flats before being restored to a single dwelling again in the 1990s.

Our clients purchased the property in 2004 and invested in a sympathetic scheme of renovation to retain the Victorian integrity of the original building. Works include a complete overhaul of the roof with the original scalloped edge slates retained (and replaced where necessary), replacement of the staircase, conversion of the attic space and extensive cosmetic improvements throughout the house.
The gas fired central heating system has been upgraded and original sash windows refurbished and repaired. The introduction of column radiators and period fireplaces to the principal rooms compliments the original period detailing such as high coved ceilings and deep skirting boards.

It provides generous living accommodation over 3 floors comprising: entrance hall, lounge, dining room, dining kitchen, study / garden room, utility / WC and rear entrance hall on the ground floor. At first floor level there is a landing, 3 large double bedrooms, shower room and a house bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 further bedrooms, landing and a dressing room. The cellars feature two more large rooms with excellent potential for development to other uses if required.

Externally, electric remote controlled gates have been added to the driveway which leads to the attached double garage.
