Moleshill House is a super period property dating, we believe, around 1870, which sits beautifully within its 4.5 acre plot.

The property has been extended and updated by the current owners and provides generous accommodation comprising entrance porch, a lovely open-plan sitting/family room with Victorian fireplace, bay window to the front, vaulted ceilings with Velux windows, and French doors which open onto the beautiful gardens. The separate dining room also incorporates a Victorian fireplace, 'Junckers' oak flooring, and bay window which also enjoys views over the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of Shaker-style base and wall mounted units, Aga and integrated appliances, complemented by wood-style worktops and tiled flooring. In addition, there is a separate study, utility room with tiled floor and a useful downstairs shower room.

To the first floor is the master bedroom with bay window, Victorian fireplace and built-in wardrobes. There are two further bedrooms and family bathroom and separate WC, and staircase leading to the second floor, which provides guest bedroom with en suite facilities and deep, walk-in eaves storage.
