About this property

  • Set within moated grounds of approximately three acres, the property offers a huge degree of seclusion and privacy and sits back from the road behind the double iron gates of an extensive circular driveway. Located in a leafy rural position on the edges of Brinkhill, its prestigious double fronted facade proffers an immense feeling of grace and grandeur with Georgian and Palladian influences, whilst its capacious accommodation unfolds over a commendable 4424 sq ft. Highly versatile and adaptable to your own needs and lifestyle, its prodigious layout is designed to allow the gardens and grounds to play an integral part in daily life and is equally suited for spending time with family, entertaining or working from home. Stabling and a tack room are ideal for equestrian households, and the prodigious gardens are home to a stunning measure of wildlife attracted by the natural beauty of its moat. Detached garaging, a workshop and store rooms are further highlights and the property benefits from underfloor heating, a water softener and alarm system.

    Flowing from a marvellous central entrance hallway, three exceptional reception rooms engender a notable feeling of grace and elegance. Looking out onto the gardens they produce a wonderful choice of places in which to relax and entertain. Whilst both the sitting and drawing rooms have focal point fireplaces, twin sets of French doors lead from the dining room into a fabulous triple aspect orangery that connects with the terracing. A study is a refined retreat from the hubbub of the day, and a notably appointed kitchen has an excellent central island and adjoining breakfast room. A separate utility room, boot room and cloakrooms complete the ground floor. A distinguished staircase sweeps up to a galleried landing opening onto four marvellous first floor bedrooms. With a duo of dressing rooms and a sumptuous large en suite that has a superior freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower, a superb principal bedroom stretches out across the full depth of the property. A second bedroom has an en suite shower room of its own, while together the additional two bedrooms share a modern family shower room.

    Generating a heavenly rural idyll, the gardens and grounds of The Moat House proffer an abundance of tranquillity and extend to circa three acres. Established lawns wrap-around the property giving ample opportunity and excuse to take a stroll down to the moat and sit by the water's edge. Secluded and peaceful, considerable terracing with a brilliantly broad gazebo is designed with al fresco entertaining in mind, and the leafy foliage of high hedgerows and majestic trees lend a captivating backdrop in each direction. A stable block with a tack room is ideal for an equestrian family, and a workshop/store and store room sit attached to double garaging that together with the gated driveway produces an enviable measure of secure off-road parking.

    Accessed via an external staircase, a first floor studio/gymnasium/Bedroom Five is beautifully filled with light from triple aspect windows. With dimensions of 23'11ft x 20'11ft it evokes a host of possibilities.
