The Property - Moor View House is a most remarkable village property which combines a spacious, recently refurbished detached home with excellent domestic and equestrian outdoor facilities to offer any number of wonderful lifestyles. Having been improved to an exacting standard under the current ownership, the property enjoys great flexibility within the internal and external accommodation to suit a variety of needs, including annexe potential or scope for ground floor living if desired. With a completely enclosed plot amounting to 2.1 acres, much of the boundary of which is surrounded by mature hedging, the property offers a degree of privacy and seclusion rarely achieved to such great effect in a village setting without spoiling what can only be described as the most charming of countryside views.

Approaching Moor View House from the village road along the tarmac driveway, which passes through two gates and culminates in a generous parking and turning area, the views leave a lasting first impression which is sustained as you move from room to room within the property and are taken full advantage of with a strategically placed balcony accessed form the first floor landing and master bedroom. From here the vista stretches across a wide swathe of South Somerset with landmarks in the Wincanton area visible in the distance, making this the perfect place to relax al fresco and enjoy the private aspect with a fantastic outlook. Another fine viewpoint is in the kitchen/dining room which, with double glass doors opening to the rear garden from the dining area and a window above the kitchen sink, is ideally set up for maximum enjoyment of the views when cooking, eating or socialising and allows a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle when weather permits.

Great care and attention has been paid to Moor View House under the current ownership to sympathetically update and improve many aspects of the property with both visible and out-of-sight elements attended to. This has lead to re-decoration throughout much of the house, including fresh carpeting and flooring in various rooms as well as alterations to the layout; one room in which this has been particularly successful is the kitchen/dining room which originally formed two separate spaces but has now been integrated into one large, family orientated room. The kitchen area has been fitted with a quality kitchen of attractive wall and base units beneath a roll-top work surface and a built in fridge/freezer with spaces available for an electric range-style cooker and dishwasher whilst the other side of the room is the perfect size for a family dining table, making this a highly sociable space which, owing to a comfortable atmosphere and stylish fittings, is ideal for all types of relaxed entertaining and dining. Adjacent to the kitchen, and providing excellent facilities for the domestic side of life, the utility room has also been enlarged to incorporate a former rear lobby; with the back door now opening into this wide, tiled space making this an excellent place to enter the property with muddy dogs or shoes. Connections for laundry facilities are also housed here, and there is also a ground floor cloakroom.

In addition to the sociable hub of the kitchen, Moor View House boasts two charming reception rooms. Connected to the dining area by a door, the sitting room is a beautifully proportioned room which offers elegant yet comfortable surroundings for any occasion with a feature fireplace and inset log burner to provide a warming glow during colder months. The snug is a versatile room which could be utilised to suit a variety of different lifestyles: currently used as a study and television room/retreat, this relaxing space is perfect for those working from home or requiring a tucked away place to study or recline.

The sleeping accommodation can be found on the first floor where there are 4 bedrooms, each offering space for a double bed. Set slightly away from the other bedrooms, the master bedroom is of a generous size with it's own access to the balcony, enabling families to achieve a degree of separation if desired, whilst the remaining three bedrooms are arranged around a central landing. Two bedrooms enjoy en suite shower facilities with space-saving sliding doors, whilst the two bedrooms to the rear of the property, along with the master bedroom, enjoy the wonderful views. Additionally, this floor is equipped with the family bathroom which is designed in a classical style with a free-standing bathtub with showering facilities and a hooped shower curtain, WC, wash hand basin and tiled floor.

Outside - Moor View House is surrounded by fantastic, varied grounds with excellent facilities to suit a variety of interests and requirements. Passing through the first gate from the road, you will notice a spacious area of garden to the front of the property which is ringed by mature shrubs and trees, ensuring privacy from the public road, and as you continue through the second set of gates, a further area of garden is situated adjacent to the rear of the property with a large paved sun terrace providing a perfect excuse for dining and entertaining al fresco and three mature apple trees. The driveway culminates in a large parking and turning area offering space for a number of vehicles as well as access to the garages which comprise one double bay and one single bay with wooden doors, power and light.

The range of outbuildings are a significant asset to the property, particularly the studio which is currently used as an ancillary kitchen and thus benefits from water, power and light. With minor alteration, this useful space could be re-purposed as a home office or even converted to a studio annexe, subject to any necessary consents, making this an excellent place for housing dependent relatives or teenagers. Equestrian enthusiasts are well catered for with two stables adjacent to the parking area, each of which has a concrete holding pen in front and direct access to the land, which is divided into three fenced paddocks with water in the two closest to the house. A further stable is situated in the middle paddock. As can be expected from properties bordering open countryside, Moor View House experiences a wide variety of wildlife, particularly within the paddocks and there is a wildlife area and polytunnel behind the two stables in the top paddock.
