Property description

A Grade II listed late 17th century five bedroom detached house occupying a central position in the village within private well maintained gardens.

The property bears a date stone of 1684 and has lime washed elevations under a reclaimed tiled roof. The current owners undertook an extension and refurbishment programme about 13 years ago using high quality materials throughout. This included inglenook and other feature fireplaces; exposed beams and timbers; brick flooring and oak ledge and brace doors. There is an open plan sitting room, a snug, a bespoke fitted kitchen/dining room, a study, a garden room and a ground floor shower/utility room. The five bedrooms are on the first floor together with a bathroom fitted in a modern white suite. Secure twin timber gates lead to a gravel driveway providing parking for four cars and access to the detached double garage. This is of timber framed construction with featherboard elevations under a pitched roof.

Reception Rooms

The sitting room has reclaimed oak flooring which continues into the snug, and an inglenook fireplace with a raised flagstone hearth housing a log burning stove. The study has a stable door to the driveway and sliding double doors to the garden room which has exposed oak flooring and glazed double doors to the rear garden.

Kitchen/Dining Room

The kitchen/dining room is fitted in a custom built range of shaker style units including glazed display cabinets and a range of hardwood worksurfaces incorporating a double sink and drainer. A farmhouse style recess provides space for a Range style oven and includes granite worksurfaces. There is also an integrated dishwasher and an exposed slate floor.


The front is enclosed by a brick wall with gravelled borders set behind and a central opening to the entrance door. The rear garden is principally lawned and includes well stocked borders and mature trees. There is a gravelled outdoor sitting/entertaining area and a Well.


Clophill has a village shop/post office, three public houses and two restaurants. The lower school is rated as Outstanding by Ofsted. The neighbouring market towns of Shefford and Ampthill are about 5 miles away and have a wider range of facilities. Schooling includes Robert Bloomfield Academy, Harlington Upper and the Harpur Trust independent schools in Bedford. Flitwick railway station(St. Pancras, 41 minutes) is about 5 miles away.
