    About this property

    • The Stable Clock House is a beautiful conversion of former stables and coach house to the manor house and instantly recognisable for its iconic clock tower with painted turret clock (1841). The accommodation is elegantly presented with a flexible layout centred around a charming sheltered courtyard. The sitting room is particularly arresting with its high ceilings, original wooden beams, large open fireplace and mezzanine gallery. To the one side is bright and well-appointed bedroom 4 which could easily be used as another reception room. An original spiral staircase leads to atmospheric bedroom five containing the mechanical workings of the fully-functional turret clock and offering panoramic views of the gardens and the alluring courtyard. From the sitting room the accommodation flows naturally into the elegant dining room and on into the kitchen with AGA and the useful utility rooms beyond. The principal suite can be accessed either from the mezzanine gallery or the secondary staircase which also leads to two further bedrooms and bathroom.

      Planning permission: has been granted for the outbuilding to be converted for ancillary guest accommodation. Application No. 18/03158/HOUSE

      Gardens

      The Stable Clock House is approached from the private access road via wooden gates and leads to a gravelled drive with parking in front of the house and garaging. The gardens are delightful and private and completely varied. Laid mainly to lawn and interspersed with ornamental trees, shrubs, seating areas and splashes of colour from flower beds, is a large area to the North-East of the house with feature summer house and deck for outdoor entertainment. This area leads on its East side to a sunken woodland featuring a grotto and former ice house with views onto further woodland. To the South West of the house in the heart of the property's footprint is the exquisite and charming sheltered courtyard which offers indoor-outdoor living in an all year round sun-trap.

    This unusual conversion has created a quite unique house - lovely big gardens and sheltered courtyard. Amazing to see the original clock mechanisms working in one of the first floor rooms!
