5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37
Front Street, Pebworth, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 8XQ
Exceptionally interesting, spacious, and historic 5 bed village house with large garden and potential for further extension and conversion. Sympathetically restored and modernised,
Bank House is believed to have been built originally in the 16th century as a timber framed farm house. It was extensively remodelled in the early 18th century and a date stone showing “1705” confirms when the original house was extended outwards and upwards featuring Blue Lias dressed stone and Cotswold stone quoins. The large elm staircases, of historic interest, were also added at this time and have been restored to their original condition. The house was further extended in the 19th century and alterations have been added over time to create the spacious family home that exists today. This is a fine example of a sensitively modernised Grade 2 listed property with large gardens in the centre of a renowned village.
