Creating a superb impression from the first moment you enter, Clifford House is a spectacular illustration of contemporary design created within a home offering a remarkable history. The accommodation unfolds over three storeys and offers flexible living spaces well suited to families, those looking for multi-generational living or with the potential of creating an income. It is thought that Clifford Hall was built in the 1470s, which was marked by a complete Elm tree beam aged from 1472. Around the 1800s Clifford Hall was converted from a one-up, one-down dwelling with a barn into a small country residence and in around 1880, an extension taller than the main building was added.

The property carries a strong history, where it was formerly The Ship pub during the times of the stagecoach, until this was closed by the Commonwealth at the time of Cromwell. The Ship was looted and amongst items taken was one of the lintels which now forms the fireplace and surround in The New Inn situated further down the road. The North's who originally occupied the Hall were descents from the man who taught Sir Arthur Conan Doyle forensic science and who was the basis of Conan Doyle's 'Sherlock Holmes' stories.

Clifford House is superbly positioned for enjoying local walks and exploring the great outdoors. Set within the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and conservation area there are super walks and woodland to discover as well as the local nature reserve Leighton Moss. The village of Yealand Conyers is highly sought after, carrying the convenience of being a stone's throw from the market town of Carnforth with excellent access to the M6 motorway and rail links, whilst maintaining an outlook over open green spaces.

The accessible position is ideal for those looking to commute to London or Manchester with direct trains from Carnforth railway station. For those looking to work from home Clifford House enjoys B4RN internet which offers high speed fibre broadband. For the family market the property is well positioned, within easy reach of the excellent local schools both primary and secondary, and with a choice of comprehensive or private schooling.

The current owners have successfully preserved and enhanced the original features of the property, creating a comfortable home with some excellent contemporary interventions. The original door gives a welcoming approach, opening into a reception room with a door leading to the garden area at the rear. An original fireplace creates a beautiful central feature, with a staircase leading to the first floor. The main living room is a calming space, ideal for relaxing all year round, with a large feature fireplace and original surround being the focal point to this room. A dining area is set to one side with an outlook over the rear garden and single door opening.

The bespoke designed kitchen provides highly appointed units, brass finishes and panelled walling. With a full wall of units, pantry storage to one side and further unit set around a range cooker there is plenty of storage for this practical living space. The position of the Belfast sink is perfect for looking out over the rear garden, and a door to the side gives access to the garden and rear patio, ideal for al-fresco dining.

On the first floor a galleried landing with high ceilings allows this space to be filled with natural light and seamlessly links the first floor bedroom accommodation. The principal bedroom offers generous proportions with wardrobe storage to one wall and a bay window overlooking the garden and open countryside beyond, towards Ingleborough and the Howgills. A second bedroom is situated on the first floor, again with an outlook to the rear which provides a good sized bedroom space. The house bathroom provides a tiled double shower area, WC, wash hand basin and free standing bath positioned within the bay window, enjoying an outlook over the grounds of Yealand Manor which is the perfect space to relax and unwind.

The accommodation further unfolds to the second floor with a generous bedroom providing an outlook to the rear and stunning picture window to the side elevation, with a beautiful view of the AONB and the Howgill fells. There is a further bedroom positioned at the rear with storage cupboard to one wall and a highly appointed fully tiled shower room. Off the landing can be found a storage space which currently provides units and which would make an ideal kitchenette space, allowing this floor to a self-contained unit for those looking for multi-generational living or to attract an income, offering a great Airbnb proposition.

Clifford House is set in a good sized garden area, with the garden predominantly being laid to lawn, with mature hedging and planting to the boundaries. There is a wild flower meadow area which has been created, attracting lots of wildlife. At the rear of the garden is a summer house with a paved patio area to the front, which offers an excellent space to enjoy the garden and / or provide an additional area to work from home.

Immediately outside the kitchen and living space is a private dining area consisting a stone flagged path with steps down to the garden.

Parking for the property is situated at the side, offering parking for approximately 2-3 vehicles and with double gates which provides vehicle access to the garden should this be required. There is excellent undercroft storage below the kitchen which is accessed from the side of the property.

If you are looking for a home which offers character, charm and significant design this is the perfect home for you!
