15th Century Yorkshire Charm

The Bank House in Yorkshire, England dates from the mid-fifteenth century and has true period style and character. It is built with stone and timber and has the original beams, inglenook fireplaces, solid oak doors and stone mullioned windows.

It has been sensitively remodeled with modern conveniences. The kitchen includes a Leisure Zenith 110 multi-fuel cooking range. A fireplace with wood surround and marble inset houses a gas fire in the dining area that has a solid wood floor.

A beamed ground floor has a recessed stone fireplace with open grate fire, and built-in cupboards. There’s also a window seat, and a door to the front patio.

In the lounge is a Venetian stone inglenook fireplace with open grate fire, and a stone spiral staircase up to the centuries old dining hall with its impressive timber canopy. A stone fireplace holds a solid fuel stove, with a stone flagged floor, beams and stone mullioned window.

Some bedrooms have window seats, plank and muntin screens and studded timber walls, and fireplaces. There are small landings and spiral staircases.

There is a cobbled courtyard and a lawned sunken garden.
