Main Street, Clifton Campville
A truly exceptional Georgian country residence dating back to the early 19th Century, built as a later addition to the original 17th Century cottage. Occupying an elevated, elegant position within the village, this stunning home has been sympathetically renovated and updated by the current owners with impeccable attention to detail and historically appropriate finishes. Offering nearly 2,500 square feet of accommodation arranged over two floors blending the faultless Georgian design with some more contemporary twists, seamlessly linking to the original 17th Century building. Externally the sweeping formal lawns and 'in out' driveway lead to the elegant stone step approach, rising to the front door. The grandeur of the entrance hallway is immediately evident on entering this property and it gives some clue as to the calibre of the home you are about to view. The ground floor offers the perfect balance of original formal reception rooms stylishly contrasting with some more relaxed family rooms. Perfectly served by the 'supporting cast members' of the more functional rooms. Planning consent has also been approved for a large orangery to the side. The first floor is equally impressive with four bedrooms and two bathrooms spanning from the most elegant of gallery landings. Further treats lie outside with an extensive driveway with curved retaining wall, manicured lawned gardens on three sides with patio seating areas and a detached double garage / gym with power and lighting.
Downes & Daughters is proud to be associated with the marketing of this thoroughly impressive family home.

WHY WE LOVE THIS HOUSE...
"We love the traditional Georgian style and symmetry in the front of the house, which is simply superb for entertaining but we equally love the contrast of the older rear part of the house with the farmhouse kitchen and Snug, which is a wonderful sanctuary in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine and unwind next to the log burner. The outside space also works really well for us, with lots of room to entertain on the terrace, a more private kitchen garden to the rear and a front garden that draws admiring comments from most passers by! The recent addition of the garage has finished the front off and makes it really stand out. The village offers everything we need, from the excellent motorway links just a few minutes away, to the abundance of country walks immediately from the front door. The Green Man in the village was once renowned for excellent food and is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment and is soon to be back to its former glory - with the addition of a village shop. Add to this the recently refurbished village hall and the large village green, which hosts an annual country fair, and it wants for nothing.
The house is close enough to Lichfield and Birmingham to enjoy a day shopping or evening out, but is also nestled away in the country where we feel a million miles away from pressures of life."
