    About this property

    • Clench Green is a delightful Grade II listed 15th century property with later additions. Formerly two cottages, this enchanting home sits amidst pretty gardens whilst being well placed for the village amenities that Northiam has to offer.

      Planning has lapsed for the addition of a drive with gates and a garage. Planning permission has been submitted for an impressive extension together with internal alterations.

      Points of note include: exposed oak timbers and beams, oak floorboards and exposed brick flooring to the majority of rooms, some casement windows and period radiators.
      Arranged over the ground floor are three reception rooms, two with attractive fireplaces (one with a Jotul wood burning stove), a study, farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room with various freestanding appliances and doors to the cellar and garden. A utility room and shower room complete the ground floor.
      Separate staircases give access to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and a bathroom, refitted in 2018. A further staircase leads to the second floor where there are two additional attic bedrooms of generous proportions with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams.
      Outside the pretty gardens with mixed hedging to the perimeter feature lawns under planted with specimen trees, shrubs and varieties of roses.
