THE CLIFFE, BURTON STREET, TUTBURY
This splendid mid-19th century property has been lovingly cared for over the years to retain distinctive features while being adapted to suit modern family life. As it was initially built for the owners of the gypsum mine in Fauld, the alabaster finishes to fireplaces and stunning mosaic flooring in the reception hall are no surprise. The hall also has a beautiful central staircase with galleried landing, wood panelling and a stained-glass and a leaded window. The rooms are large and ‘wonderfully light and bright’, according to the owner; in total comprising 7,500 sq ft. A spectacular drawing room, with sash and bay windows, intricate plasterwork ceiling and a log burner, is one of four reception rooms – the others are in use as a formal dining room, a study and a gym. A rear hallway, which leads to the gardens and access to an original Butler’s Pantry – an ideal utility room – then leads to the breakfast kitchen in the rear wing. A Smallbone kitchen, it has a more contemporary open-plan feeling and continues into a Snug area followed by a rear reception/ family room with a modern spiral staircase to the first floor. Upstairs at the front of the house is an extensive Master Suite – created by the current owners – two large double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an extra WC. A fourth bedroom and WC are in the centre of the home; while en-suite bedrooms five and six, in the rear wing, are accessed by the spiral staircase.
The property is set in just over an acre of private, landscaped gardens.
