Full description

A substantial and unique four bedroom period property located in an idyllic and private position on Clunbury Hill with exquisite far reaching views of the countryside. Currently run as a successful holiday let, with it's elegant balance of shabby chic/country style interior, this property offers versatile accommodation for either a family home or to purchase as an investment.

Property Description - This unique and quite exclusive property offers peaceful and secluded accommodation and the clever room configuration affords light and spacious living; in particular the charming conservatory style kitchen/family room provides wonderful views over the extensive gardens. Both the drawing room and the living room have pretty original feature fireplaces and the breakfast/snug has an oil fired Rayburn, a range of hand painted cupboards with wooden work surfaces, integrated electric oven and gas hob and space for further appliances.
Of particular interest are the varied outbuildings and the planning permission in place which has been granted for an additional storey on the house and on the parking area permission for a double garage with office above.
Approaching this property you will immediately be struck by the simplistic symmetry of its grandiose facade reminiscent of a bygone era. However, once inside you will be charmed by how the current owners have created a homely yet chic environment with the clever use of internal decoration and layout providing an easy flow from room to room. More specifically, the centre piece of this property is the incredibly spacious kitchen/family room located in a separate conservatory style wing, complete with Aga and wood burner. In addition there are are a further two reception rooms both with high ceilings and feature fireplaces.
Moving upstairs the theme is continued in the bedrooms with painted floorboards and access to the impressive balcony from the landing. From here you are presented with the most amazing views of the surrounding countryside reminding you of how perfectly located this property is. Conveniently close enough to nearby villages and towns so as not to be too remote but also idyllically placed to enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside.

Gardens And Outbuildings - The pretty gardens are a wonderful feature of this home with a huge array and variety of outbuildings including a children's wooden castle, a two storey "Octagon" house and two wildlife ponds. The gravelled paths and sloping lawns have mature and well stocked borders.
On the opposite side of the lane is a parking area with space for several vehicles.
There are steps which lead down to the property from the parking and lane to a gravelled terrace with entrance doors at the front which leads into the house. Accessed by french doors from the kitchen/family room is a part covered terrace ideal for outside entertaining and providing incredible views over the gardens and to the extensive countryside beyond.
