    About this property

    • Originally dating back to the 17th century, Half Moon House started life as a public house. The Grade II listed property has since undergone an extensive programme of extension and refurbishment, now offering an impressively spacious layout with flexible living space.

      Abundant with period features including exposed wooden beams and original fireplaces, this property is not short of charm. The two main reception rooms sit to the front of the property, the main sitting room being of a particularly notable size with log burning stove and two large windows. The adjacent lounge, with log burner, connects to the kitchen and is suitable for a range of purposes.

      The heart of the home is the impressive kitchen-dining room, a later extension, this bright room has an apex roof light and bi-folding doors opening to a sheltered seating area. The well-appointed shaker style kitchen has built-in appliances including a Rangemaster electric oven and substantial central island with breakfast bar.

      Continuing through the ground floor there is a sizeable separate utility room, WC and plant room; which provides access to the cellar.

      The property is fitted with wooden Yorkshire sliding sash windows to the front and double glazed windows to the rear.

      Ascending the first floor there is a house bathroom and five bedrooms, all with their own unique charm. The principle bedroom features built-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. In addition, the guest bedroom, currently used as a study, also benefits from an en suite and built-in wardrobes.

      The house sits behind pretty cobbles in the heart of the village, the cobbles are privately owned by the property and provide parking for two cars to the front and three to the side.

      To the rear of the property is a particularly private, well-proportioned, walled garden with a central lawn, terraced seating area, raised vegetable beds and a well-stocked flower bed. Double gates give vehicular access to the double garage.
