Built in 1824, The Clock House was the former coaching house and staff quarters for the original stately home, Stratton Park. Converted in the early 1990s, this particular property sits proudly in the centre of the clock terrace, boasting the original and fully operational clock tower. This home is tastefully presented throughout, boasting classic features including high ceilings, Georgian style windows, cornicing, and wooden flooring. To the ground floor is a magnificent sitting room, with windows to the front and rear, French doors into the garden and a wood burning stove. The remodelled kitchen is a wonderful open plan space, perfect for convivial modern living with doors into the garden and ample space for a dining table. The first floor has been cleverly remodelled to create two palatial bedrooms, both with well-appointed en-suite bathrooms. Planning permission has been granted to create a contemporary, single storey glass extension to the rear of the property and to extend into the large loft. The property is approached via a private tree-lined drive arriving at a cobbled courtyard area shared by the residents, each of whom have two designated parking spaces. In addition, there is space in front of the house for three or four vehicles. The owners have invested significantly in landscaping the wonderful south-facing garden, featuring a generous central lawned area flanked by a shrub border to one side and a paved path with espalier fruit trees to the other. At the end of the lawn there is a heritage apple tree and a further raised border planted with lavender and clipped box topiary. Steps lead to a lower paved terrace providing a wonderful sheltered seating area, beyond which there is part of the original loggia providing a covered area and two useful outside spaces. A paved terrace adjacent to the house makes an ideal spot for al fresco dining.
Set in the glorious Parkland grounds of Stratton Park, the property is enveloped in countryside. Stratton Park is located approximately 7 miles to the north of Winchester, close to the charming villages of East Stratton and Micheldever. There are superb road links, with the A33, A34 and M3 all close by. The mainline rail station of Micheldever Station is within two miles and serves London, Winchester and Southampton.
