About this property

  • Splendid detached property on a no through road on the edge of this most sought after village.

    Lovely situation with no near neighbours and views over the surrounding farmland.

    Claypits Farm, probably dating from the mid 19th century, has mainly brick and rendered elevations below a tiled roof. The house has been significantly altered and extended over the last 40 years, having been modernised in 1983 and most recently extended in 2000 and now providing over 3,300 sq ft of accommodation.

    Arranged over two floors, it is ideal for a family, with a good size kitchen and breakfast room, south facing dining room with fireplace, large drawing room with fireplace and conservatory and study on the ground floor and five bedrooms on the first floor with views over open countryside. The house is approached via a council maintained no-through lane which becomes a bridleway and a private drive provides access to an area with ample parking, a single garage in brick and flint with an attic. There is a range of four wooden stables, hay shed and horse trailer shed. To the north of the drive is a brick and flint, tiled roof two room building used in the past as a studio and office. Alongside there is a further range of 3 wooden stables, adapted as workshops with power and water and WC facilities. but could easily be converted back to stabling.

    Beyond that is a further paddock bordered to the north by a lovely old wood, currently with bluebells, on what were the old claypits, with an abundance of native flora and fauna.

    Direct bridleway access to Coombe Woods and beyond. The property is within walking distance of the centre of the village.

I particularly like the fact the lane peters out into a Bridleway
