About this property

  • With its quintessential chocolate box charm, The Cleve is a traditional timber-framed Grade II listed farmhouse. With its attached one-bedroom annexe, granary, workshop, garage and cellar it presents a much sought-after opportunity to update and create a family home suitable for C21st living.

    Presently a four-bedroom house with attached one-bedroom annexe, the layout offers flexibility to combine the accommodation, with the granary offering scope to provide a home office in the garden.

    The very essence of The Cleve is a well-loved family home, which it has been for over 30 years and today, in need of substantial renovation, the property offers great potential to incoming owners.

Blewbury is such a popular place. The Cleve is in a wonderfully private spot, nestled in the heart of the village. I love the fact you can walk straight out of the front door and onto one of the charming footpaths that wind their way through the village.
