Property description

A very gracious grade II listed family home. Sitting in stunning gardens. Four bedrooms, four reception rooms, conservatory, cellars and two garages. In addition a gardener's cottage with scope to renovate subject to necessary consents. This house has style and charm and is a beautiful home.

"Swiss Vale" is a fabulous Grade II listed Georgian house which sits within the most superb gardens. Originally built as part of Clevedon Court around 1724 and used as a school in the 1800's.This gracious house has not been offered on the open market for around 40 years. The accommodation is beautifully proportioned throughout with delightful period features which have been carefully preserved and which compliment the modern improvements. The gardens will not disappoint providing privacy and seclusion without isolation and with the additional interest of a former gardeners cottage, now used for storage and in the past as a party room. There is scope to renovate as a self contained annex subject to planning consent.

This house has great style and charm with a great balance between inside and outside space.

"Swiss Vale" stands back from the road by some 35 metres and is particularly well screened.

Nearby cold water tap and to the rear of the property access to the oil tank and log store. The gardens are a particular delight having been a great passion of the present owners for around 40 years. A central path leads straight up to the main entrance beneath a beautiful period canopy with its original wrought iron archways which loop along the front of the property. Either side of this central path are two beautifully tended lawns, flanked by great borders planted with a wealth of shrubs, specimen trees and perennials. A pair of scots pines frame the view beyond to Kings Wood.

Bathroom With large shower, pedestal washbasin and WC and a raised double ended bath.

There are a number of productive fruit trees and a small kitchen garden. These gardens will challenge both those keen on horticulture and for those looking for valuable space for the family. The Hot House Complete with double glazing! And raised beds ready for those valuable tender fruits and vegetables. To the rear of the property sits "the cottage", probably a former gardeners cottage appearing to be relatively sound in structure but quite basic having been used as a potting shed, hobbies area and a great party room for summer bar-be-ques that spill late into the night. It may be possible to improve the cottage, subject to the necessary consents to provide annexe accommodation.

Owner's COMMENTSSwiss Vale has been a happy home for me for the last 30 years but now is the time for me to return to my country of birth and spend time with my daughter. I am leaving with no little you will be aware, the house is a Grade II listed building meaning that alterations to the structure of the building are subject to regulations. Never the less, modernisation in the form of double-glazed windows was carried out some years ago without the necessary consent. To legalise the situation and save aggravation for the new owners, this year I applied for, and was granted, approval with the provision that at least one step was taken to return the building to its original state. This requirement is underway and a new front door in keeping with the age of the building will replace the existing plastic door. The consent, including detailed plans (available), for the replacement windows is ongoing, however, the authority requires no further changes to be made. Of course, should further changes to the building be considered they must be within Listed Building may be of interest to know that planning permission had previously been granted for a new house to be built within the grounds. Tending the garden has been my passion and with no wish to follow this route I let the permission lapse. Given the precedent I see no reason for a future application to be denied should that be of interest. However, I did plan to cut down the tree standing to the right of the garages in order to enlarge the turning space for cars. With no requirement for more space, refurbishment of the old gardener's cottage for use as a hobby room, studio, children's den or workshop etc., was not a priority. Moving back to South Africa will require me to cut back on furniture and, subject to selling price, I will be happy to leave certain items with the house if so wished.Should you have any questions on the house or matters appertaining I would be very happy to do my best to answer them. A history of the house dating back to 1724 is available. If you decide the house is for you, I am sure you will grow to love it as much as I have. If it is not for you - good hunting
