Kirkbank House is a delightful, detached period property which we understand was originally built in the 18th Century by the then Curate of St Mary the Virgin (parish village church), formerly consisting of three properties which have been sympathetically combined to offer a substantial dwelling of great character. The current owners have updated the property in recent years to include re-wiring, new plumbing, new bathrooms and kitchen together with some re-modelling, resulting in a beautiful, comfortable family home. Internally the accommodation is deceptively spacious, arranged on two floors, with the centre section of the house offering a large Entrance Hall on the Ground Floor and generous 1st Floor Landing enjoying superb rural views, all leading to elegant, light and airy rooms of generous proportions. The property also benefits from beautiful exposed timber floors, beams and open studwork, latch doors, fireplaces and double glazed leaded light windows. At the front entrance is a useful open Porch (approximate size 5'10 x 3'10) leading into the following (all with approximate dimensions) :
