DESCRIPTION
Cherrybank is an exceptionally spacious period semi detached house located within the heart of Whitehouse. Believed to date back to the late 1800’s the property is understood to have once housed the village bank and has formed part of the Whitehouse Estate for several years. The property has undergone extensive refurbishment over recent years yet some areas remain uncompleted to allow any potential buyer the opportunity to create their own perfect family home. The accommodation is exceptionally spacious creating a large amount of space and versatility, with the large imposing windows capturing the beautiful surrounding countryside. The generous garden grounds lie to the front and side of the property and there is plenty off road parking.

ACCOMMODATION
Following the refurbishment the accommodation currently comprises an entrance vestibule and door leading to the main reception hall. A bespoke solid wood staircase has been installed creating a wonderful feature as you enter the home. The lounge has two windows to the front of the property and one to the side drawing in an abundance of natural light and the dining room also enjoys a bright aspect with two front facing windows and a traditional open fire. A door from the dining room leads through to the original 50’s kitchen, which remains in an extremely functional and charming state yet would require upgrading. With the dining room and kitchen lying adjacent to one another it’s thought perfect to open these two rooms up and create a fantastic family dining kitchen. Subject to any purchaser investigating the requirements and possibilities. To the rear of the ground floor level you will find a extremely handy utility room, contemporary shower room and accessed from a staircase is a double bedroom to the rear. This room remains unfloored to allow any buyer the opportunity to select their own finishing touches. This room would also be ideal as an office for those working from home.

The imposing staircase in the main entrance hall leads you to the first floor landing. Here you will find the superb master bedroom with open outlook to the front over the surrounding countryside. The ensuite bathroom has been fully refurbished with a traditional white suite including a free standing bath. The second double bedroom is equally spacious and again has two large front facing windows. Accessed directly from this bedroom is a large dressing room. Finally on this level, you will find a single bedroom or home office.

As one continues to the top floor you will find two further full sized double bedrooms, both enjoying period open fire places and located centrally between the two bedrooms is a bathroom. The bathroom remains uncompleted yet fully plumbed creating a blank canvas for a buyer to install their own bathroom choices.

Over the last few years Cherrybank has undergone extensive refurbishment which included replacement double glazed windows, new oil central heating system, new plumbing and roof & chimney repairs. Its imperative that Cherrybank is viewed to allow any potential buyer the opportunity to appreciate both the work completed and the potential that remains to add your own design and finishing touches.
