The Property
Cliftons is an outstanding and beautifully presented 16th Century Grade I Listed family home with stunning established gardens. One of the most notable houses in Clare, the property is principally of timber framed construction with rendered elevations under a slate and pantiled roof. Superb features worthy of a Grade I Listing for this attractive and significant historic property include the symmetrical Georgian frontage, two red brick moulded chimney stacks and a dining room clad with fine Jacobean panelling. Approaching 7,000 sq ft this impressive property has been fully renovated to a high standard by the current owners, whilst retaining enormous character, with a section of wall painting, high ceilings, sash windows, panelled doors, decorative cornicing, ceiling roses and open fireplaces.

Particular features of this fine and well-proportioned house are the flexible accommodation, including the charming housekeeper’s cottage, that can be accessed and incorporated into the main house, which boasts a welcoming reception hall, generously sized reception rooms with full height sash windows and fireplaces, wonderful newly fitted bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and integrated appliances and good sized study. The main house also has a useful boot room, laundry, wine store, two cloakrooms and two cellars. The first and second floors provide seven bedrooms, five with en-suite bath/shower rooms, guest sitting/dressing room and family bathroom.

Outside
Cliftons has a sweeping in and out gravel driveway providing parking and turning for several vehicles and access to the former coach house used for garaging. A pair of wooden gates to the side lead to the partly walled kitchen garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with an outbuilding/garden store, small paved terrace and brick archway leading to the main garden.

The formal partly walled garden is a particular feature of the property offering a high degree of privacy and ideal for entertaining. The mature gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, with a good sized paved terrace, abundance of well stocked flower and shrub beds including roses, variety of specimen trees including fine majestic yews, array of fruit trees and pergola with splendid fruiting vines. A well maintained timber framed summer house is located to the rear of the garden overlooking the neighbouring paddock land, with a veranda, power and light. Cliftons Cottage has a private garden also enjoying paddock views.
