Full description

Moorlands is a substantial country residence having been built in the latter part of the nineteenth century. The main residence was constructed of dressed sandstone to a high quality with imposing elevations, a particularly impressive entrance porch with triple arched entrance door and window openings flanked on either side by the mullion windows of the principal reception rooms. The period features are just as impressive, the original character having been retained even though the property has been extensively modernised by the current owners. The whole of the property is tastefully and attractively decorated throughout. An imposing entrance hallway leads to a delightful reception hall with galleried landing and large centre roof light. All the reception rooms are of an elegant nature with deep skirtings, moulded architraves and ornate cornice features.
