A substantial period house with stunning gardens.
Clopton Grange is Listed Grade II as a building of special architectural or historic interest. The listing refers to the house dating from the 16th or early 17th centuries. Subsequent alterations and additions have blended with the original timber framed structure of this former farmhouse to create a home of great character, yet with up to date facilities. Clopton Grange presents part brick rendered and painted elevations beneath a thatched and pantiled roof. Inside the timber frame and beams are exposed to the walls and ceilings of many rooms.
The accommodation has been thoughtfully arranged and is well proportioned. The current study staircase leading to a bathroom and bedroom above could all combine to create a self contained area if required. The modern requirements of a large kitchen / dining room/ snug has been provided and two of the four bedrooms have spacious and well fitted en suite bathrooms.
The gardens and grounds are approached by a curving shingle drive which sweeps through the lawns, partly under planted with bulbs and through an avenue of trees to the front of the house and to the parking and turning area. To one side there is an extensive pond, partly backed by beech and other hedging with trees including willows. Immediately in front of the house there are shaped lawns.
There is a large lawn on the southern side of the house, enclosed in part by hedges, a conifer screen and fencing with well stocked shrub borders.
Services: Mains electricity and water. Private drainage system, Oil fired central heating.
