Full description

Bank House is a substantial family home sitting in an elevated position in the picturesque village of Caverswall on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands. The driveway rises to the side of the property from the pretty High Street, terminating at a large gravelled area with two large outbuildings.

The traditional three storey red brick Staffordshire farmhouse, as you would expect, has plenty of space including a large kitchen, back kitchen, wood panelled games room, sitting room and more formal dining and drawing rooms.There are six bedrooms spanning the upper two floors, each floor having its own bathroom. The bedrooms are all large double bedrooms with plenty of space for wardrobes and dressing tables.Below the ground floor is a large sandstone cellar built directly onto the bedrock and split into two distinct chambers making it very useful as a wine cellar or storage.The property enjoys a large plot with approximately 2 acres of garden which is a delightful mix of formal gardens and more natural areas with wooded glades and wild flowers. There is a full size tarmac surfaced tennis court overlooking the gardens and a far reaching view over the village.There are two large outbuildings, large enough to be used as workshops, garages, stabling or a myriad of other uses.Caverswall is a popular location, thanks in part to its traditional village feel and a host of character properties, narrow lanes and far reaching views. Nevertheless, it is within easy reach of the larger conurbation of Stoke on Trent and Newcastle with the A50 running approximately three miles to the south. Mainline rail stations are close by with the fastest trains to London taking 90 minutes. There are four airports within about an hour's drive.The village is on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands and is surrounded by rolling countryside.The centre of the village has a very pretty square, with a renowned public house to one end. Foxfield Steam Railway is within walking distance being just outside the village and is a popular local attraction.
