About this property

  • Morna is a striking property set in the heart of the village and looking over the green. Built to an impressively high specification by a well-known local builder, with remarkable attention to detail and immaculate throughout. The construction of the house is traditional with an attractive mixed brick elevation with stone window frames. The layout of the accommodation is well thought out with high ceilings, ornate cornicing and double doors for entertaining. The drawing room is of generous proportions with a stone fireplace and opens into a sitting room. The dining room offers a wonderful space for formal entertaining, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room has ample space for every day dining. The kitchen has been beautifully made by Mark Wilkinson and includes marble work surfaces and breakfast bar. Central and noteworthy to the house is the magnificent and ornate staircase which turns elegantly to the top floor. The bedrooms and bathrooms on the 1st floor exude the same quality as the rest of the house, and the 2nd floor is used as one large play/games room but could easily accommodate further bedrooms.

    Gardens

    Morna is approached from the lane via a private gated entrance to parking in front of the house and double garage. The immaculate garden is enclosed and laid mainly to lawn to the rear of the house. It is interspersed with mixed borders, trees and shrubs with double doors from the drawing room leading to an Italianate part of the garden.

What a lovely house - the attention to detail is incredible - but for me the staircase is the winner - amazing!
