Read the Clock Tower country house for £2.1m

A RARE property with a clock tower dating from 1841 has come up for sale in Tidmarsh with a guide price of £2,100,000.

The Stable Clock House, a converted five-bedroom stable and shed for the mansion, has a fully functional turret clock and period features.

Included as part of the sale is an outbuilding which has obtained planning permission to be converted into auxiliary guest accommodation, opening up the potential for an Airbnb business subject to the necessary consents.

The property is elegantly presented with a flexible layout centered around a charming sheltered courtyard. The living room is characterized by its high ceilings, original wooden beams, large open fireplace and mezzanine gallery.

To one side is a bright and well appointed bedroom, which has the potential to be used as a further reception room.

An original spiral staircase leads to the bedroom where the mechanical workings of the original 19th century clock are on display. The same room also offers a panoramic view of the gardens and the courtyard.

From the living room the accommodation flows naturally into the dining room and into the kitchen with AGA and useful utility rooms beyond. The master suite is accessible either by the mezzanine gallery or by the secondary staircase which also serves two other bedrooms and a bathroom.

Liz McLean, residential sales manager at Savills in Newbury, whose team are handling the sale, says: “This unusual conversion has created a very unique home, with lovely large gardens and a sheltered courtyard.

“It’s amazing to see the original clock mechanisms working in one of the first floor rooms, which only adds to the appeal of the house.”
