Bank Cottage is a stone built Grade II Listed property thought to date from the 17th century having been improved and extended by the current owners including enlarging and incorporating a former outbuilding into the main accommodation. Elevated above the main village lane, a small glazed ‘bridge’ links the two buildings on the first-floor level. The main door opens into the kitchen dining room with a beamed ceiling and extensive floor cupboards incorporating a Belfast sink and a Stoves cooking range. There is a window seat, and to one end, an inglenook fireplace housing a bread oven. Stairs rise to the first floor landing with fitted cupboards and doors to bedroom 2 and the family bathroom with a roll-top bath and a fitted shower. Further stairs rise to the 2nd floor bedroom 1 past some dressing cupboards.
Over the bridge, opens out to the 1st floor sitting room with high ceilings, a door to the rear garden and stairs down to the bedroom 3/study, back on the ground floor with a door to the front.
Approached from the lane by a sweep of stone steps, which rise to a wide private front terrace ideal for entertaining. The rear garden is elevated and accessed by blue brick steps to a small lawn area with raised flower beds and a paved eating terrace adjacent to the church
