Eden Bank is an Impressive house located in the centre of Kirkby Stephen. This detached home sits in a quiet, elevated location on the banks of the River Eden.

Kirkby Stephen is a busy town with a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, primary and secondary schools, medical facilities and weekly outdoor market. It has easy access to the M6 and the A66 trans-Pennine route, as well as rail links via the Settle-Carlisle line. The beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, Eden Valley, Lake District and Teesdale are all within an hour's drive.

The house dates back to the 1850's and was further extended in 1920, therefore offers both Victorian and Edwardian features throughout including high ceilings, decorative coving and generous proportioned rooms. It has been with the current owners since the late 1980's and as their family home. The property remains in good condition and had new windows installed Feb 2021. Further updates would give potential to create extra accommodation in the attic space if required. Internally this property offers spacious accommodation with a feeling of grandeur.

On the ground floor is a rear conservatory/entrance porch which leads to the hall. There is a family kitchen with a fitted 'Middletons' kitchen and with doors to the dining room, a large lounge with open fire and window overlooking the rear garden with long distance views. The cellars are currently used for storage and would make an ideal wine cellar, as it boasts the original stone shelving. There is also a utility room and ground floor shower room. The drawing room is part of the 'extension' so is Edwardian in style with a open fire in oak surround, large windows and a patio doors out to the rear with superb views.

Upstairs are five good double bedrooms, the house bathroom and a Jack and Jill en-suite to the master bedroom. Off the landing is a staircase leading up to the attic room, which remains unconverted but has 6 large Velux windows and could easily create extra accommodation if desired. The property enjoys panoramic views of open countryside and to Nine Standards in the distance.

Outside, to the rear are walled cottage/kitchen gardens. These have created low maintenance patio areas. There is a good range of outbuildings, including a log store, coal store, a good size tool shed and an integral garage. There is a gated, gravel parking area providing ample parking for several vehicles. To the front are formal terraced gardens with stone steps leading down to the riverbank and a woodland garden. Eden Bank owns 150- 200 yard (approx.) of river and has fishing rights.

This porperty is a superb family home, set in such a truly splendid location being so close to the town centre, yet enjoys panoramic views over the open countryside.
