MOAT FARM A Victorian farmstead with a large range of traditional barns, carthouses, stables, workshops and timber framed buildings which have potential for renovating and converting (subject to any necessary consents).

The current property was relocated and rebuilt following the collapse of the original dwelling which had been surrounded by the moat in the early 19th Century, and provides period features and high ceilings throughout.

The ground floor comprises sitting room and dining room leading into the kitchen which has exterior access. There is also a substantial walk in larder and utility room with work surfaces and shelving.

From the entrance hall the wooden staircase leads to a spacious landing from which the bedrooms and bathroom lead off.  

OUTSIDE There are two entrances to the property, one of which leads to a smaller sub plot and yard which could allow for a new dwelling and private entrance (subject to necessary planning consents).

The outbuildings range from a substantial oak framed barn currently occupied by 3 grain silos (included in the sale) to smaller corrugated tin sheds used for general storage. The oak beams in the open faced barn were also reclaimed from the original house and feature ornate carvings.

A moat surrounds the garden where the original house stood. The rear garden is laid to lawn with a greenhouse and range of mature shrubs and trees. To the front of the property is a small lawned area, including a large Scots Pine and shrubbery area. The property is partially fronted by a metal balustrade fence.  

LAND The rear of the property merges into an arable field (approx. 9.66 acres) which is currently in arable rotation with a northern aspect and gentle slope. The Soil Survey of England and Wales records the land as containing soils of Hanslope (411 d) Chalky Till.
