This handsome property was originally part of Moorlands Manor House, designed by the acclaimed Victorian architect, Sir Gilbert Scott in the 16th Century gothic style, and built around 1880. Converted from the manor’s stables many years ago, this home is rich in grand historical features including high ceilings, beautiful beams and large stone mullioned windows.
The dining hall is an amazing first impression of the house with its imposing wooden staircase, stove set in a wooden surround and a trio of windows, two of them high-set, letting the light simply flood into the room. The fabulous windows are a prominent feature in the generously-sized living room too, several at ceiling-height and one a large cathedral style, the light through which shines to showcase the multi-fuel stove and parquet floor.
Renovated by the current owner, the focal point of the elegantly fitted kitchen is the central island, which creates a wonderful dining/entertainment space. There is almost a whole wall of windows including a glazed door leading out to the walled garden, all inviting in the natural light; integrated appliances provide practicalities and the character continues with a butler style sink and range style cooker. The galley style utility with access to the garage, is a handy addition.
To the rear of the house is a bath/shower room and a games room with two mezzanine floors above. Uniting this and the garden is a glorious fully-glazed Victorian style conservatory.
The first-floor landing, an extensive galleried space with oak features, leads to the three bedrooms and family bathroom with a cast iron roll top claw foot bath.
The garage extends almost 40’ to a storage and work space, and there is parking with a useful utility area leading to the main lawned garden – a beautiful gardener’s garden, mature and planted with a variety of shrubs and trees providing an array of colour. The walled garden, accessed through either the conservatory, the kitchen or the garage, is a fantastic sheltered area in which to relax in complete peace.Dining Hall18' 0'' x 14' 3'' (5.48m x 4.34m)From the moment you enter the high ceilings make this a rather impressive first introduction. A large stone mullioned rear aspect window immediately catches your eye, just past the imposing staircase and as you turn upon entering you notice the front aspect window and in particular the high set windows which border the ceiling create a light aesthetic which flows into the room. On a practical level there is a radiator, electric stove set in a wooden surround and doors opening to the kitchen, rear hallway and sitting room.Living Room17' 11'' x 16' 2'' (5.45m x 4.92m)A large cathedral style stone mullioned window set to the side aspect dominates the room as you enter which then leads your eye to the wood burning stove set over a parquet floor.
