Clematis House is a charming Georgian farmhouse located in Claypole on the Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire border, where you can appreciate a rural location with the amenities of Newark and Grantham only a few miles away.
The present owners, enjoy the character and space in the house. Ian explains that the initial attraction, was that it was a prestigious property with a large garden; and the perfect place to bring up a family. It has been the ideal and much-loved family home for thirty years.
The house has been extended, always ensuring that the work was completed to the highest standard and in keeping with the period. Windows were replaced with handmade, glazed units, whilst the large kitchen, with its attractive vaulted ceiling was formed from an adjoining shed and is now the sociable hub of the home. Friends enjoy casual kitchen suppers, and for the current owners it is a convivial spot where they eat, cook and relax. Open the patio doors to the garden and the room fills with warm summer air.
Clematis House can also become a chic entertaining venue. It is great party house and has been the scene of many happy events with lots of dancing around the kitchen. It provided the perfect setting for a wedding reception and recently fifty lunch guests have wandered happily from house to garden.
The easily maintained garden wraps itself around the house and the owners appreciate the compliments they get from passers-by as they work on the front garden. The rear garden is awash with well stocked, colourful borders and the hedging is a haven for a wide variety of bird life. It is the most calming place to enjoy alfresco meals.
Claypole is a friendly and active village. There is a primary school, shops for everyday needs, and the thriving towns of Newark and Grantham are only a few miles away. It is approximately a mile to the A1 and there is an excellent rail service into London Kings Cross from both Newark and Grantham.
The owners say that whilst they enjoy the busyness of London for a weekend, they are always ready to return to the tranquillity of Claypole and their home.
They treasure many happy memories and are proud of what they have achieved with the property. With their children having flown the nest it is now time for another family to enjoy the delights of living in Clematis House.
