About this property

  • Stream House is a welcoming home set in delightful semi-rural surroundings with farmland to three sides, an enchanting walled garden and grounds that extend to just over an acre.

    Dating back over two centuries, Stream House was originally a barn within the cluster of buildings that made up Moatlands Farm. Converted in 1989 to form a spacious family home that the present owners have enjoyed for over 30 years, the versatile accommodation provides a wealth of living space with the option to adapt the current configuration to suit the new owners' requirements.

    Converted barns often make dramatic use of the original central door location and Stream House doesn't disappoint, with expansive glazing framing a wonderful view of the walled garden and a galleried landing ideally placed to make the most of this view.

    With three double bedrooms in the main section of the house and extensive space to provide further bedrooms, family or home-working accommodation in the single-storey section, this property presents an intriguing and truly versatile proposition. With its delightful rural setting, well-maintained gardens and wonderful walled garden, Stream House is a desirable and unique property with undoubted appeal.

I really like the tucked away position off a country lane, a bit like a secret house and one that I never knew existed before, despite having driven down the lane many times and sold properties there over a good many years.
