Lot 1 - 57 Dee Banks

57 Dee Banks is a handsome detached house dating from the Georgian period with later additions. It is constructed of brick with sash windows under a hipped slate roof and in architectural terms has much to commend it. The property comes to the market for the first time in over a century and whilst retaining much of its original character, 57 Dee Banks now lends itself to a scheme of modernisation. It is evident that there is scope to reconfigure the layout of the accommodation to create a conventional 5 bedroom house and the outbuildings offer further potential.

From a glazed Front Porch steps lead into an Entrance Hall with decorative tiled floor beneath an open Staircase. Off the Entrance Hall is the Drawing Room with Minster style fireplace with moulded cornice work and deep sash windows overlooking the front garden and beyond to the river and meadows. Behind the Drawing Room and off the main Hall is the Dining Room with open fireplace, serving hatch to the Kitchen and French windows to the rear garden. The Kitchen contains pine wall and base units under work surfaces with sink, walk in Pantry and central
Breakfast area. Off the Kitchen is the Utility room with built-in sink, plumbing for washing machine and stable door to the garden. Across the Entrance Hall opposite the Drawing Room is the family Sitting Room which has a double aspect overlooking the river and the rear garden. Beyond the Sitting Room is a Garden Room which has subsequently been adapted to provide an annexe with ground floor Bedroom and En-suite shower room.

At first floor level there are 2 double Bedrooms to the front of the house with a Box Room between them which would readily adapt to provide an En-suite Shower Room. At the top of the stairs is a further double Bedroom and family Bathroom serving the front Bedrooms whilst the Master Bedroom benefits from a recently fitted En-suite Bathroom together with a separate Dressing Room.

Outside

57 Dee Banks is set back from the road and has an attractive front garden with low brick retaining wall finished with stone copings incorporating a central pedestrian gate. The front garden contains lawns divided by a series of paths flanked by well stocked shrub boarders. Gates either side of the property lead into the back garden and the house also benefits from vehicular access off Dee Banks via an unadopted lane which runs to the back of the property serving a garage constructed of brick under a slate roof. To the side of the garage is a
pedestrian gate into the rear garden which is for the most part lawned and provides a private space enclosed by mature privet hedges to either side.

Against the house is a paved seating and barbeque area with a path leading to the side of the property where there are a series of brick and slate outbuildings including a coal store and garden shed housing the gas central hearing boiler. Subject to the availability of planning permission there may be scope to adapt these buildings and possibly extend the ground floor living accommodation.
