A magnificent Victorian house in need of modernisation, in this tucked away position within park-like grounds about a mile from the village.
Clock House is a truly aspirational house; a classic and beautifully proportioned unlisted Victorian family home, full of charm and character and is privately set within extensive park-like grounds.
The property was originally part of the Hollamby estate, dating back to circa 1860 and has been in the same family ownership since 1968. The long private driveway approach gives a real sense of arrival and would have originally continued through the majestic avenue of Wellingtonia trees lying to the west side of the house.
The impressive reception hall leads through to three light-filled principal reception rooms, all with wide bay windows and fire places. A snug with a wood burning stove and a large kitchen/breakfast room, together with a domestic area comprising a shower room, cloakroom and boiler room are positioned to the rear.
A striking ballustraded staircase rises elegantly to the first floor, providing five double bedrooms, a sixth bedroom, two bathrooms and a separate cloakroom.
Clock House enjoys a most attractive and private setting within park-like grounds of about 4.68 acres in total, with a lovely outlook to all sides. The extensive open space is full of interest, filled with many specimen trees, swathes of rhododendron and azalea and linked by tracks and trails which meander through the gardens. A small unfenced paddock flanks the driveway. A delightful writer's pavilion offers tranquillity to enjoy the westerly views at sunset and a secluded, quiet, place to work from home, with mains electricity.
