Moreleaze Farm is a well proportioned family home set within
22 acres which include a nature reserve, pasture land and formal
gardens. Over the years the property has been sympathetically
extended and enhanced by the current owners to create spacious and flexible accommodation. There is also the added benefit of a detached home office with potential to create a separate annex.
The house offers the perfect lay out for modern day living. From
the entrance hall there is a drawing room with open fire and
French doors leading out to the garden, further along from the
hall is a dining room, a generous study and a second sitting room. Continuing through the house and you enter a light and airy farmhouse kitchen which is fitted with an extensive range of solid oak units, granite work surfaces and a bespoke dresser.
The kitchen leads through to a large utility/boot room which has
plenty of space for the usual appliances. At this end of the house there is also a shower room and an external door. Following on from here is an impressive snooker/drawing room which really maximises the property's sunny orientation and includes triple aspect windows with lovely views across the gardens. From this room there is also an oak staircase which rises to the first floor and a double bedroom with ensuite
bathroom and built in wardrobes.
Back at the entrance hall there is an oak staircase which leads to the first floor. The master bedroom benefits from triple aspect windows, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a large guest suite complete with fitted wardrobes and large en suite bathroom.
Outside there is a detached double garage which has been extended to provide a large separate room which could serve a variety of uses such as music room or home office. There is also plenty of parking. The gardens and grounds are mainly laid to lawn and at the rear of the house is a large terrace which is perfect for alfresco dining. There are two stables in the garden.
The land extends beyond the garden and into the distance and includes around 21 acres of pasture land including a nature reserve with a stunning 300 sq ft summer house and a small lake. Due to the level and well established land it makes this property ideal for those with an equestrian or livestock interest. In total the property extends to about 22 acres.
