A Grade II listed five bedroom detached former Priory House situated in gardens and grounds of about 1 acre in a rural position on the edge of Clophill with outstanding views.
The property is believed to date from the early 1600s and is of timber framed and brick construction under a pitched clay tiled roof. There are numerous period features which include exposed timbers, inglenook fireplaces and dome leaded light windows. The accommodation is versatile and includes three separate reception rooms plus a bespoke Amdega conservatory. The first floor is accessible via two staircases with a large galleried landing providing an additional area, which is currently used as a music room. There are five double bedrooms, an en suite shower room and two family bathrooms. Twin gates lead into the driveway which provides parking and access to the detached double garage.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted in a bespoke range of hand painted cabinets with complementary tiled work surfaces and splashbacks. A recess provides space for a range style oven and there is an integrated dishwasher. There is a pantry cupboard and a shelved storage cupboard. A rear staircase provides access to the first floor.
The gardens are principally lawned with shrub borders, mature trees and a terrace area. There are two timber storage sheds. The paddock is enclosed by post and rail fencing and has a timber stable block providing two stables and a tack room.
