Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The house has a front porch with a ceramic tiled floor and a window to either side. The inner wooden front door leads into the welcoming entrance hall with an oak staircase leading up to the first floor. There is a useful walk in storage cupboard off the entrance hall.

The triple aspect sitting room has a Bath stone surround fireplace with an open fire. French doors lead out onto the southerly facing terrace, the perfect spot to admire the views across the garden and Moreleaze Farm's land beyond.

The property benefits from a separate study, snug and dining room. The dining room has a window looking out to the rear of the property and can be usefully accessed from either the entrance hall or the kitchen.

The inviting double aspect farmhouse style kitchen has a ceramic tiled floor and an excellent range of solid burred oak floor and wall cabinets with granite work surfaces, a Butler sink and bespoke dresser. Integral appliances comprise a double electric oven with four ring ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and water softener.

From the kitchen a door leads into an impressive double aspect utility/boot room with a tiled floor and an excellent range of cabinets with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A door from the utility leads out to the front of the property. Off the utility room is a shower room comprising a wash hand basin, shower, low level WC and a heated towel radiator. From the utility room there is a lobby with an external door leading out onto the southerly facing terrace and an internal door leading into a triple aspect reception room with a set of sliding doors out onto the terrace. This room is used by the current owners as a snooker room. From here an oak staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a double bedroom with built in wardrobes and two Velux roof windows allowing lots of natural light to fill the room. At the far end of the room is an en suite bathroom with bath, wash hand basin, low level WC and a heated towel radiator. If desired this wing of the property could easily be turned into a self contained annexe (subject to the usual planning consents).

Returning to the entrance hall in the main part of the house the first floor is accessed via the beautiful oak staircase.

The master bedroom has a dressing area and en suite bathroom comprising a bath, shower, wash hand basin, low level WC and heated towel raditator. There are two further double bedrooms and one single bedroom on this floor. One of the double bedrooms enjoys a triple aspect and from here there are fantastic views across Moreleaze Farm's twenty one acres of land. The room has built in wardrobes with hanging rails and shelves and an en suite shower room.

A family bathroom comprising a bath with shower attachment, corner shower cubicle, wash hand basin, low level WC and heated towel radiator completes the accommodation on the first floor.

The property is set back from the road and approached down a private lane onto the gravelled driveway which leads in front of the house and has parking for numerous cars. A paved path leads from the driveway to the front door of the property. The front garden has a beautiful horsechestnut tree gracing the lawn. There is a double garage with two up and over doors, one of which is operated electronically using a remote. The garage has an attached double aspect single room annexe with its own entrance door. This room is currently used as a music room, but would also make an ideal home office or studio.

The rear garden has a beautiful sun terrace making the ideal spot for al fresco dining. Specially designed for Moreleaze Farm the stone slabs making up the terrace are brick edged with raised beds, herbaceous borders and privet hedging. A well and two separate water features make attractive focal points of this area. A path with a pergola leads from the terrace to the stable block comprising two stables.

The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. To one side there is an inviting summerhouse with decking overlooking a fish pond.

Beyond the formal gardens lies the pasture land which is divided into four fields and currently rented out for grass keep. The nature reserve area with a lake and wood cabin is located at the far end of the land and makes the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful setting.
