Detached Property For sale in Clifton-upon-Dunsmore
This incredibly versatile Four Bedroom detached property for sale in Clifton-upon-Dunsmore has more to offer than might be first apparent.
As behind the scenes at this initially modest looking ‘bungalow’, actually lies a significantly extended Dormer style home offering Ensuite Shower rooms to two of the bedrooms, three reception rooms and a conservatory which could provide all kinds of possibilities for a family’s needs.
The original part of the building was built in around 1905, at the same time as the neighbouring Clifton Court. Several other properties within the immediate vicinity were also built by a Colonel Mulliner at this time. It is set within beautiful mature and well-tended gardens that surrounds the property to all sides and it is reportedly positioned within the highest point in Warwickshire
The Breakfast Kitchen was beautifully refitted just a few years ago, incorporating a great range of built in appliances and offering an open plan space for a modern family to sit and enjoy each other’s company.
There is a ‘Sitting Room’ which is used on a day to day basis, which I think would also make a great Play room if you have a young family.
An impressive 26ft Lounge tends to get used ’For Best’ by the current owners. With its striking looking fireplace and wood burner, it’s a great space for when you have a house full.
“This has been a great home for having all our friends and family round for parties. There’s so much space for everyone here. Once we added the conservatory, it created a great circuit to move through out all the rooms. The Grand children love running around it!”
A beautiful dining room is set to the front of the property and was in fact the Entrance Hall initially as the porch and front door lead into it. It’s too nice just to use it for access though, plus the owners use the door from the rear garden as their main way in and out of the property.
Now, the accommodation it one thing. The other very important feature of this property, is that set within ‘The Yard’ (as the owners refer to it) is a detached brick built double garage.
In addition to a 20’ wide double garage space with roller door, the building which actually extends to about 30’ has a work shop area with stairs leading to the first floor loft space which extends to the full length of the building.
Now I don’t know about you, but I can think of a multitude of ways I could use this building other than just for storage.
I can think of a few classic car collectors that this would appeal to for one thing!
Anyone needing a workshop, an office space, a studio, Man Cave or a place for the kids to hang out, well it really is a fantastic space.
I dare say with the appropriate permission for a ‘Change of use’ , there is also a possibility of it being used as a ‘Granny Annex or Air B&B facility – What an absolute bonus this building is!!
There’s so much to tell you about this property that I could go on for ever, but there’s no substitute for you coming to get a feel for it yourself.
You really need to have a good look around to get a real feel for it and the possibilities it has to offer.
Just as a sub note, there is an adjacent paddock extending to approx. 1 acre with could be purchased by separate negotiation. Do ask us if you’d like more information on this.
