Clouds Farm is an impressive period residence occupying a peaceful village location in the heart of Drayton. Formally a collection of farm buildings belonging to Court Farm, the buildings were converted in 1984 to form the main house with the old Church Hall converted into a large garage and workshop. Later the adjoining linhay was converted into a self contained one bedroom annex and inked to the main house by a large conservatory. In the past the linhay has had planning to incorporate a holiday cottage although this permission has since expired. The main house offers comfortable family living space including a recently added stunning garden room with large atrium roof window, bi-folding doors and wood burning stove. There are beautifully kept private formal gardens to the front of the property with an enclosed orchard to the rear leading to two paddocks and an area of copse which is home to several Roe deer. In all the grounds extend to a total of approximately 3.5 acres.
Mains water, drainage and electricity are all connected. Oil fired central heating to radiators. Council tax band G.
The village is designated as a conservation area with a fine parish church and public house, The Drayton Arms which is currently being refurbished.
