About this property

  • With origins dating back to 1869, when Lord Ashburton built the house as a summer residence for his wife, East Clyffe House sits in a commanding position surrounded by its own grounds, with views across the beautiful Wylye Valley. The house is approached via its own driveway, that sweeps around the front of the property to a large parking area and outbuildings to the rear. There is additional rear vehicular access to the parking area. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and mature trees and hedges along the boundary. There is an orchard with Pear, Plum and Apple trees and a vegetable garden.

    The property has been extensively renovated to an extremely high standard by the current owners, to include gas central heating with a dial-home service connected to Calor Gas. There is underfloor heating throughout, excluding the Wine Store in the basement. Every room is thermostatically controlled via a Luxone app. The current owners have installed an Energy Recovery Ventilator that extracts stale air from WC's, the family bathroom and the kitchen and pumps clean, filtered, warmed air (allergen free) back through the house. New windows were installed throughout four years ago – triple glazing to the front of the property, double glazing on the remainder of the house. There are wifi access points on every floor (total of five) and the electrics were replaced in 2016. The basement was fully waterproofed in 2015/2016 and has a very effective light-well from outside the drawing room window, down into the main basement room. The property also benefits from external night vision CCTV cameras, which can be accessed remotely, via an app.

    The large, light entrance hall leads to all of the principal reception rooms on the ground floor. The well-appointed Neptune kitchen boasts a large range of cupboards, a large central island, granite work surfaces and stone flooring. It has the added benefit of an electric Rangemaster cooker, integral larder cupboard, fridge/freezer and dishwasher and built-in benches around a large breakfast table.

    Generous and versatile reception rooms, with large windows and high ceilings, include a sizable, light double-aspect drawing room with double doors leading to a small conservatory. There is a spacious dining room with views over the garden and a substantial and light-filled sitting room with a new wood-burning stove. Also on the ground floor is a boot room, cloakroom and also a utility room in the enclosed courtyard, accessible from the back door adjacent to the kitchen.

    Opposite the kitchen, stairs lead down to a fully tanked and renovated basement that offers flexible accommodation of wine store and two further large rooms that could be used as a media/cinema room, office, or gym.

    On the first floor, the spacious principal bedroom enjoys the unique feature of a roll-top bath positioned on an oak platform in one corner, with stunning views over the surrounding countryside to Grovely Woods. Adjoining is a large en suite dressing room/wet room. The remaining four bedrooms have access to two further family bathrooms, one of which could be used solely as an en suite to the guest bedroom, as it has an inter-connecting door to that room, plus one leading on to the landing.

The attention to detail throughout the property really is exceptional and complemented by the holistic automated control system. This is a beautifully restored family home and the converted basement offers all that extra space a growing or large family needs.
