We were asked to look at this property by an existing client who knows the owners and felt that the position with outbuildings would make a great residential recording studio.

The retired couple who have lived here 38 years are downsizing now that the kids have flown the nest.

Time for a new family to come and enjoy this beautiful home with so much nature around, notably pheasants (who come to feed in the front garden…), barn owls, nesting swans and many other birds.

It’s wonderfully quiet, as it’s far from any major roads or bustling town, however the pretty village of Clare is only a short drive.

There’s also an excellent farm shop & cafe just up the road, which does great food served at table or take away (I recommend the scotch egg with piccalilli).

The house dates back centuries as an old mill and was extended at some point, so there are quirky features inside from when the new section was added.

A loft runs the length of the house and there are cupboards in every room, so there’s lots of storage space everywhere.

The barn & outbuildings

This is the reason we agreed to list this property; the barn is a decent size and made of flint & brick, which isn’t bad with acoustics. It would take some investment to insulate the roof, but given that, it would make a great studio with its aisled construction layout.

There are several other outbuildings that could be converted to either guest accommodation or other use ancillary to a studio.

The grounds

There’s a beautiful high wall enclosing the front garden, making the patio the ideal summers evening space and it looks over the large pond beyond the flower beds. The land continues as far as the eye can see, bordered by the river.

It’s just magical…
