    About this property

    • Clifton House is a fine Grade II listed five bedroom Georgian family home set in beautifully maintained private grounds in a popular village setting. The property also includes a self contained Coach House which is ideal for an array of different uses, including multigenerational living or the potential for a secondary income as a holiday let. Believed to date back to around 1770, this wonderful residence is notable for its symmetrical elevations, parapet, ceiling roses and pilasters, sash windows and a number of internal character features such as an 18th-century staircase, panel doors and original cabinetry, wood floors and original fireplaces. The house has an elegant feel and is traditionally appointed, with the addition of the garden room extension and offers excellent natural light due to the array of large sash windows. The Coach House is ready for immediate occupation and features a kitchen with oak fitted units. Upstairs are four bedrooms, all with shower rooms featuring electric showers.

      The main house is arranged over two floors and extends to almost 3,500 sq ft, comprising a long and welcoming entrance hall which leads halfway down the house and opens into a formal dining room with adjoining study, a second formal reception room overlooking the front of the house, a library and fantastic dual aspect garden room which is ideal for entertaining and filled with natural light. There is also a useful cloakroom and WC, a traditional kitchen comprising a range of wall and base units with central island and intergrated kitchen appliances with utility room leading off and boiler room to the rear. Upstairs there are five good-size double bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms. The rear bedroom also incorporates an 'open concept' shower room which has its own staircase.

      The attractive and self-contained Coach House is set back from the main house and extends to approximately 1,700 sq ft providing a 22ft sitting room, an oak fitted kitchen/dining room with a range cooker and central island, a utility room and WC. To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, each one with an en suite shower room. The Coach House is a fantastic addition to the main house and could be used as a holiday let or for multigenerational living.

      Despite its convenient setting in the heart of the village, the gardens are not overlooked and have a spacious, park-like feel with a generous front garden which is principally laid to lawn and flanked by hedging, bisected by a sweeping driveway which wraps around the front of the property and beyond the main house. To the side of the main house, there is a useful detached double garage with workshop and storage space and a large gravel parking area to the rear which provides ample parking to both the main house and the Coach House. The gardens capture the sun on three sides, with the ability to follow the light throughout the day and is ideal for entertaining in the summer months. A variety of mature trees, hedging and shrubs provide seasonal interest, including a small orchard with fruiting apple, pear, greengage and damson trees, and there is also a vegetable patch and a greenhouse attached to the main property.
