A unique and individual development, situated on the edge of Clifton Upon Dunsmore. Prices start at £400,000 and rise to £700,000. There are 7 units in total all varying in size and design.
Introduction - In purchasing one of these beautiful Grade II listed cottages you will not just be acquiring a new home but part of our national heritage.
This unique development is the separation, into four single dwellings, of the Old Hall at Clifton on Dunsmore, Warwickshire.
The Old Hall was originally two individual cottages and a large attached barn set in a substantial holding on the outskirts of the small village close to the historic village green. The cluster of buildings forming a small terrace was eventually gentrified in the Nineteenth Century to form one large residence with paddocks, stables and substantial gardens.
Further development and the construction of a large brick and timber attached pavilion to the western extremity of the property, at the start of the 20th Century, further extended the Old Hall to provide in excess of 7000 sq ft of living space for family and staff and has been owned by a number of well to do families over the past 150 years.
With its core dating back to the 17th Century the original gentrification appears to have been undertaken in a manner that has caused minimal structural compromise and consequently there is minimal alteration required to separate the whole structure back into its original individual cottages.
The existing structure sits on the northern edge of its grounds and benefits from a huge walled rear garden that contains stables and mature trees including rare and protected species.
The new units that will become available upon completion of the first phase of this hugely impressive development will comprise of the following :-
Plot 3. Holbrook Cottage - Plot 3, having a gross floor area of 1750 sq ft or thereabouts (to be known as Holbrook Cottage) was also originally part of the original 17th Century core of the Old Hall which also contains many original beams and features as well as the old kitchen with large gas fired Aga range cooker. There are two reception rooms, a ground floor shower and w.c and entrance hall on the ground floor. On the first floor there are two large bedrooms and a family bathroom. It is feasible that the further ground floor reception room could be used as a third bedroom with views over the beautiful and well stocked rear garden. This unit is also accessed from the rear via breedon gravel paths giving further access to the garages and car parking space.
Services - All the units will benefit from new separate water, gas and electric connections. Main sewerage is also connected and all the units will be heated by Worcester/Bosch gas fired central heating.
Timescales - It is proposed that the first units will become available in Late Autumn 2018, with a further detached stable conversion and new build units within the substantial and well established 1.4 acre garden becoming available in the late spring early summer of 2019. All units will be sold with 10 year structural warranties.
