  • Property Details

    A beautiful Grade II Listed farmhouse in a tucked away position on the edge of this popular village, now in need of some updating and improvementEntrance hall \ Sitting room/study \ Dining room \ Snug \ Kitchen \ Rear hall \ Utility room \ Boot room \ 5 Bedrooms \ Family bathroom \ 2 Storage barns \ Parking \ Garden \ PaddockSelf-contained annexe comprising: Open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room \ Bedroom \ BathroomJust under 3 acres Moat Farm House is a particularly handsome Grade II Listed farmhouse. Dating from the 16th Century the house was re-fronted in the late 17th Century with a symmetrical brick fa├žade. Internally the property retains much of its original character with large inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams. The house has been in the same ownership for over 40 years and now requires updating and improvement.A central front door opens to a wide hallway from where the principal rooms are accessed. The bright and sunny sitting room is to the left and has a large inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. To the rear is a separate study area, from where a door leads to the boot room and garden. The dining room, a similarly well-proportioned room, is to the right of the hall and also boasts a fine inglenook. A door to the right of the fireplace leads in to a cosy snug. The kitchen is accessed off the dining room and is fitted with a variety of wall and floor cupboards. A relatively newly installed Eco Range 3 oven cooker is a perfect companion to this farmhouse style kitchen, and triple aspect windows make it a light, bright room. Beyond the main hallway is a rear hall with a door into a generous utility room; this has an unusual mullioned window looking back into the dining room.A rather splendid oak turned staircase rises to the first floor, where there are three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The staircase continues to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms. Attached to the southern flank of the house is a self-contained annexe, comprising an open plan living room/kitchen on the ground floor and a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.Moat Farm House stands in a very private but convenient location just to the south of the village. Beautiful views of the ancient parish church can be seen from the garden. Arriving at the mouth of the drive a large detached thatched period barn provides useful storage space in three rooms. The drive continues past the front of the house to a large parking and turning area, where there is a second larger barn. In total both barns provide just under 3000sq ft of storage. The surrounding gardens provide abundant rustic charm with areas of plentiful flower beds filled with cottage garden plants and areas of lightly wooded grounds. A good size paddock is reached via a five bar gate from the end of the garden. A substantial pond to one side of the house completes the picture of this idyllic setting.
