A HANDSOME GEORGIAN HOUSE SITUATED IN THE HEART OF THE QUINTESSENTIALLY ENGLISH VILLAGE OF ALDRIDGE.
Approached through tall, wrought iron, electric gates, The Moot House is a handsome, Grade II listed private residence occupying mature, tree-lined grounds with garaging, extensive outbuildings and attractive gardens to both the front and rear. The house has a classic Georgian façade with an impressive Portico entrance. The well-proportioned reception rooms retain exquisite period details and architectural features including open fireplaces, sash windows with shutters and attractive, decorative cornicing.
The farmhouse style, living kitchen is well equipped with a range of oak fronted cupboards and units, a Gas fired AGA, integrated Bosch dishwasher, original inglenook with circular bread oven and tiled flooring. Adjoining this is the utility room with further cupboards and units, a range cooker, a pantry off and outdoor access.
The sitting room has an open fireplace and steps rising to the Garden room with built-in shelving, a timber ceiling and French doors to the terrace. There is an office with a storage room off and a door opening to the Hydrangea garden.
The first floor comprises four double bedrooms including the principal bedroom suite with decorative cornicing and ceiling rose, panelled walls, fine views over The Croft, en suite bathroom and separate dressing room with a hardwood floor and built in wardrobes.
The staircase rises to the second floor to three further double bedrooms; one with an ensuite bathroom and sauna, and one currently used as a games room with a wood burning stove and built in desks and cupboards. The two substantial secret rooms' which are boarded and insulated are currently concealed in the loft however these could be knocked through to create more living space.
The Moot House has cellarage with multiple rooms and priest holes.
The Moot House enjoys a lovely walled front garden with landscaped lawns and well stocked, shrub borders. There is extensive parking to the front of the property and two garages.
There is a tree house for children, a strawberry patch and masses of snowdrops and bluebells in spring.
The outhouse, currently a two room workshop with two further rooms on the first floor, lends itself well to be converted to a home office or an annexe. On the ground floor there is a gardener's loo. There is a further brick built building used as a garden store, and potting shed.
The main garden is to the rear of the property and offers complete privacy. Mostly laid to lawn with mature trees including a wonderful silver birch, the garden benefits from a chicken run, treehouse, picnic area and bluebell wood.
There is a spacious terrace which is ideal for alfresco dining during the summer months.

What strikes me the most about this property is that it has all the wonderful attributes of an English country house, while being only 13 miles from the centre of Birmingham.Tony Morris-Eyton
