An impressive 5-bedroom property set within a 19th century manor house

With its distinctive red brick elevations and corner castellated tower, Clarence House is a beautifully restored property, forming part of a 19th century manor house, in a semi-rural location. Arranged over three floors, the light and airy accommodation, featuring under-floor heating throughout, offers flexibility and is perfectly suited to modern family living.

The reception hall, with characteristic staircase and parquet flooring, leads directly to the rear of the house, where the capacious open-plan kitchen/breakfast/family room is located. Filled with natural light, courtesy of a roof lantern and an expanse of windows and doors overlooking the garden, this bright space benefits from air-conditioning and creates a multi-functional hub for the home; the French doors open out to a sun terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and relaxation.

The kitchen area is extensively fitted with a range of units, granite worksurfaces, integrated appliances and an island unit. There is also a serene sitting room with a feature fireplace, and a formal dining room along with a study area within the hexagonal tower. The ground floor is also home to a utility room with its own outside access, and a cloakroom.

On the first floor is the sumptuous principal suite comprising a spacious bedroom with air conditioning, a fitted dressing room and a modern bathroom featuring a standalone bath with a separate shower. There are two additional suites on this floor whilst the upper floor is arranged to provide two further bedrooms, one with direct access to a roof terrace at the top of the tower, and a well-fitted family bathroom.

Outside

A gated entrance, within the walled front boundary, affords access to a paved driveway and to the double garage, with a block-paved pathway leading to the entrance portico. There is an area of lawn to the front with planted borders and space for outdoor seating which takes in the sunny south-easterly aspect. Principally laid to lawn, the rear landscaped garden is extensive, with deep borders containing mature shrubs and at the far end an area of specimen trees create additional visual interest, with a pond providing a haven for wildlife. A paved sun terrace adjoins the back of the house offering opportunities for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.
