The House and Garden
Built in 1918 Newton Bank is a rare house of great character, retaining many original features, with extensive and flexible accommodation. The house has been a happy family home for over 30 years (?) and offers potential for a new owner to redecorate and improve the property to their own specification.
The ground floor provides 3 reception rooms of elegant proportions. The kitchen was extended in to a garden room, which has become the heart of the house. In addition there is a study and a utility hall.
The first and second floors provide up to 7 bedrooms and could be reconfigured to include en suite bathrooms. Many of the rooms have fantastic views, there is also scope to create an annex on the top floor.
The property has a “U shaped” drive to the front, a garage and parking to the side. Set in 3/4 of an acre of grounds, there is a large lawned garden and many mature trees and shrubs.
