THE PROPERTY GUIDE PRICE £ 600,000 TO £ 625,0000

Originally built around 1190, this Grade II * listed property is full of character. On entering the property you will be greeted by the kitchen/dining/living room with herringbone brick floor, exposed beams and outlook over the gardens. At one end is the kitchen which has been fully refurbished and upgraded by the current owners to provide a keen cook with all that is required. The latter also includes a pantry. This convivial space also houses a dining table big enough to sit 8 guests comfortably and an impressive inglenook fireplace with Rayburn cooker (which also doubles up to provide hot water and heating) inset and cupboard to the side and a door leading to the rear.

The adjacent reception room has high ceilings, a Tudor inglenook fireplace with brick hearth and heavy oak supporting beam. There is an alcove which the current owners inform us was previously a church window which can be seen from the outside hidden behind the ivy on the south wall.

The 12th century rear Norman doorway is a particular feature of the property and is in remarkably good condition for its age and leads to a rear lobby with brick flooring, full height glazing and a barn door leading to the garden. There is also a utility room with Belfast sink and space for a washing machine and dryer. Beyond the utility room you will find a spacious WC with wash basin.

As a further added attraction this property comes with a fully functional annexe/studio complete with an en-suite shower room with separate WC and wash basin, making it the perfect space for guests/friends to stay or family who wish to remain at the property a little longer.

The first floor comprises two very good size double bedrooms both with plenty of storage, one with double height ceilings. The current vendors have cleverly made use of the landing and turned it into an office area. The main bathroom with roll top and claw foot bath comes with a separate walk-in shower cubicle, WC, wash basin affording lovely views onto the rear garden and an airing cupboard housing the recently fitted water cylinder.

The property enjoys off road parking for several vehicles which is adjacent to a large timber workshop and potting shed, ideally lending itself for the erection of garaging/cart lodge, subject to the necessary planning consents.

The gardens are an asset to the property having been carefully landscaped by the current owners to create the quintessential English country cottage style gardens. Large expanses of lawn are interspersed by mature shrub beds and borders with a variety of trees including apple, pear, plum, greengage, silver birch, copper beech and walnut with mature yew hedging creating a natural screen. There is a pond with a fully functional pump and water filter. The rose covered pergola is a must see and a welcome addition to this amazing garden.

To the rear of the property is an extensively paved terrace leading down to the lawn with a delightful refurbished and fully insulated summer/office house with light and power leading onto a further new patio area ideal for alfresco entertaining.
To the side of the property is a carefully maintained kitchen garden which is approached via a vine covered walkway, with well stocked fruit and vegetable beds, greenhouse and compost area whilst at the bottom of the garden an enchanting pathway leads down to the Chilton Stream, enjoying a countryside backdrop beyond.
 

LOCATION Clare is an attractive and historic town boasting many fine examples of period architecture, a Priory, Norman Keep and magnificent St Peter and St Paul church. It is very well served for a town of its size with a range of everyday facilities including doctors, shops (to include a branch of the Co-Op), schools, which includes the Stour Valley Community School, post office and library. The market town of Sudbury with its branch line commuter service to London Liverpool Street lies 8 miles to the east, Bury St Edmunds lies approximately 16 miles to the north, whilst Cambridge is easily accessible 25 miles to the west.
