A Victorian five bedroom detached house with an attached two bedroom annexe, gardens, parking, and an outbuilding incorporating a studio, garaging and storage.
Moor House is believed to date back to 1892 and has in excess of 2,900 sq. ft. of accommodation. The main house has been modernised but retains original Victorian features including high ceilings, sash windows and open fireplaces. The ground floor accommodation includes a sitting room, family room, study/dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. There is also a utility room and two cloakrooms. The five bedrooms are on the first floor - with the master bedroom having an en suite bathroom - together with a family bathroom. The attached two bedroom annexe was added to the house in 1994 and has its own separate entrance and accommodation over two floors including a sitting room, a kitchen/breakfast room and a bathroom. It could be incorporated into the main house if desired. The property also has courtyard parking.
The L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room has bespoke, hand built Shaker style units with granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a full height corner larder fridge and there is a central island unit with an iroko work surface. Double doors open out onto the garden and terrace.
In 1999 a barn was converted to provide a separate studio with a vaulted ceiling and a mezzanine level. There is also a kitchen and a shower room, both refitted in 2019, making this space suitable for use as an office or fitness area. Adjoining the studio is a two bay open-fronted garage/store, a brick built double garage/workshop and a brick built store.
A gravel driveway opens into a courtyard providing parking ahead of the main house, annexe and outbuilding. The garden to the front of the house is laid principally to lawn and has flowering borders, mature trees - including ash and weeping willow - and beech hedging. There is also a decked children's play area and a paved terrace with a pergola supporting a grapevine, wisteria and rambling rose. There is a small garden accessed from the annexe.
