The Property
Eden Bank is a handsome detached Georgian property set in around 1.88 acres acres of private gardens and grounds. The Grade II Listed property dates from 1834 when it was constructed for a prominent wine merchant from nearby Brampton. This was the first large house to be built in Wetheral, influenced by the development of the Newcastle to Carlisle Railway which brought increased trade and prosperity to the area. The historic nature of the house is reflected in the grand sandstone ashlar construction and striking symmetry.

The property rests within extensive landscaped gardens and grounds with sweeping lawns, mature woodland, a tennis court and a wonderful variety of outdoor spaces to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Adjoining the house is a substantial outbuilding that incorporates a one bedroom annexe offering further flexibility and possibilities. A paddock of around 3.04 acres sits to the north east of the main grounds and may be available to purchase subject to separate negotiation.

The accommodation in Eden Bank is truly impressive, with hugely spacious reception rooms, bedrooms arranged over the two upper floors and extensive cellarage. The stone portico entrance opens to the entrance hall with access to the principal reception rooms to left and right. The spectacular drawing room is filled with natural light from full height sash windows. Decorative wood flooring combines with elegant cornicing and a fireplace with marble surround. The sitting room offers another large reception room, and the study could be configured for any number of uses. The kitchen/dining room has a range of fitted cabinetry and a grand AGA within a stone inglenook with date inscription. Adjoining the kitchen is a boot room, linking onwards to a laundry room and pantry. A cloakroom and WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

Stairs rise from the hall to the first floor via a half landing. The half landing has access to a guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The first floor landing leads to two substantial bedrooms. The principal bedroom benefits from a lovely en-suite shower room and the elevated position brings these rooms fabulous views over the grounds and the countryside beyond. Also on the first floor is an expansive dressing room with an abundance of storage and an adjoining shower room. This could easily become another bedroom if required. A separate bathroom is positioned off the landing.

A door opens to a concealed staircase the ascends to the second floor and three attic bedrooms. There is restricted headroom within these rooms but they could be used for a variety of purposes, such as play rooms, hobby rooms or home office space to keep home life and work separate.

Extensive cellars beneath Eden Bank provide a vast amount of storage space. There are three separate cellar rooms along with a further open fronted cellar and a boiler room.

The property is approached via a gated entrance to a gravelled driveway that leads to a sweeping parking and turning area. There is a courtyard to the rear of Eden Bank with adjoining outbuildings that wrap around to incorporate garages, stores and a self-contained annexe. The annexe includes a kitchen/utility on the ground floor which has scope to be developed. There is a large sitting room on the first floor, along with a bedroom with en-suite shower room. The annexe could be utilised for visiting guests, or as private accommodation for a dependent relative. The remaining outbuilding includes a coach house, garage, store room, wood store and two gardeners’ WCs.

The extensive landscaped grounds include manicured lawns and mature woodlands, along with a tennis court. Footpaths wind through the grounds, linking quiet seating areas and features such as an ornate pond. The walks bring glimpses of Wetheral Viaduct as they pass through this peaceful reteat. A fabulous summerhouse sits to one side of the house and rotates to capture the sun at all times of the day and year.

The gardens are totally private, yet near the centre of the village and with the unusual bonus of a private entrance to Wetheral Railway Station tucked away at the far end of the grounds.

There is a paddock of around 3.04 acres which may be available by separate negotiation. The current owners are seeking planning permission to develop on this land.
