Three double bedrooms, one single bedroom/study, family bathroom and principle bedroom with en-suite.

We step through the front door into a  generous hallway with downstairs cloakroom.  The ground floor accommodation sits to either side of the hallway,  benefitting on both sides from a dual aspect, allowing you to fully appreciate the fabulous views afforded of the courtyard and the gardens. The Kitchen is well-equipped and looks onto the front from the attractive stone casement windows, which are featured throughout the property.  There is a separate utility room,  spacious dining area and double doors onto the garden room, where you can kick back and enjoy the view over  the exquisite gardens. The whole of this area is beautifully tiled in Travertiin.


On the other side of the hallway site the living room oozing comfort and peace,  carpeted and with a stone fireplace. Again the setting is dominated by the views with full  windows to either side of  double doors out to the garden.

Stairs up from the entrance hall take you to three excellent sized double bedrooms, the principle with  en-suite shower room, built in wardrobes and enjoying a view over the front courtyard and garden views, there is a further double facing the front with built in wardrobes, a third double looking over the rear and a small single bedroom.

The property has the character features to go with such a beautiful setting with vaulted ceilings, exposed stonework and timbers, stone window surrounds, deep sills and leaded glass.

OUTSIDE

The Dairy sits facing a green in the private courtyard opposite the historic Cleeve Prior Manor. In the near distance there is a lovely view of the 12th century church of St Andrews, with open fields and countryside all around.


To the side of the property is detached garage built in blue Lias stone. There is a gate from the garden to the garage, perhaps an ideal conversion, subject to planning for a home office or other use.  Good sized loft space above the garage and driveway parking for two cars.

The gardens are really quite beautiful, so peaceful with approx a quarter of an acre, beautifully landscaped, with a range of  mature shrubs, trees and flowering plants. The end of the garden is a side plot that would make an ideal orchard or vegetable plot. The gardens can be best viewed on the video tour.

The name “Cleeve” comes from the Saxon word for cliff and the prior was a medieval monastery which was destroyed during the Reformation. The continued significance of the early origins of Cleeve Prior as a Saxon and Medieval farming community is clearly illustrated in the presence of numerous farm buildings from the 16th to 19th centuries.

The centre of the village forms the Cleeve Prior Conservation Area and there are many picturesque houses made from the local blue lias stone, including the Kings Arms public house and the 150-year-old school which bestows a strong character and local identity.
