Full Details

ABOUT STONEY BANK HOUSE We understand that this property dates back to the early part of the 20th century and was built by the local mill owner Charles Moon. It was purchased by our client's family in 1936 and is now offered for sale for the first time in 85 years. The property is of traditional stone built construction under a hipped slate roof.

It is entered through a covered porch area at the front which leads into the spacious entrance hall with wood paneled walls and staircase to the first floor. From here there is access to the four ground floor reception rooms. The principal ground floor room features a bay window overlooking the front gardens and has been used as a dining room although it could equally make a good formal lounge. There is also a sitting room, snug, breakfast room, kitchen and WC, we would expect that buyers would look to reconfigure some of these rooms to make a larger open plan dining kitchen.

Further stairs from the hall lead down to the cellars which feature 3 full height rooms that offer further scope to be repurposed if required. The first floor features a spacious open landing area, 4 double bedroom, house bathroom and a separate WC. The principal bedroom again features a large bay window enjoying the views.

Externally the property sits within grounds that we understand extend to approximately 0.7 of an acre. They are accessed via a gateway from Stoney Bank Road with a driveway stretching round the front, side and rear of the building. From here there is a particularly attractive stone built detached coach house which features a garage and store room downstairs with large open former games room at the front. A garden area extends to the rear of the coach house. There is also an extensive lawned garden area in front of the house.

We anticipate that the property may appeal to buyers seeking a family home to extend and adapt or possibly with the potential to redevelop the grounds. These possibilities would all be subject to the necessary planning consents and we would suggest that buyers obtain their own professional advice in this respect prior to purchase.
