Eydon is a peaceful rural village situated in unspoilt undulating south Northamptonshire countryside. There are many social activities - a pub/restaurant, parish church, village hall and sports field, with the larger villages of Woodford Halse and Byfield not far away for everyday needs. The market towns of Daventry and Banbury are nearby for supermarkets and more specialist requirements. A mobile grocer and butcher visits twice weekly. Communication links are found at Banbury with the M40 Junction 11 and national train services (London Marylebone under 55 minutes/Birmingham International 40 minutes).
Clearview Farm is a lovely Grade II Listed recently renovated former farmhouse dating back to the 17th century with later 20th century additions. There is a sundial with a datestone of 1641. The property sits in a slightly elevated position over the main village lane with, and as the name suggests, lovely easterly views towards Canons Ashby. The property has been renovated by the current owners to create modern flexible living. Period features include a stone mullion window with some window seats, beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces. Window glazing has been recently renewed.
The property is accessed by a side door which opens via a small hallway to a good-sized utility room with fitted floor cupboards, travertine floors, Belfast sink and French doors opening to the garden. The sitting room has a high inglenook with a bread oven and houses a Clearview log burner. From here, a short passageway leads to the kitchen breakfast room which enjoys views and has an electric Aga set in a stone fireplace, wooden floors, double Belfast sink and fitted floor cupboards. The main hallway, with a part-glazed front door, has stairs rising to the first floor with a large under stair cupboard. Off the hallway are bedroom 3 and a cloakroom. The first floor comprises two good sized double bedrooms with fitted cupboards (bedroom 1 being triple aspect) and both enjoying rural views. There is also a newly fitted bathroom and a shower room, which has a large walk in shower. Both have ceramic wood-effect tiled floors. There is hatch and ladder access to a large, well insulated and part-boarded attic with windows. The attic could be developed into further accommodation subject to necessary planning consents.
Gardens and Grounds
Adjacent to the property is a detached, stone single garage, a gravelled south facing eating area and a main garden, which is laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders. There is a gravelled driveway and off-road parking for a number of cars.
