Set back from the road, the property is approached via electric gates with a long, private driveway sweeping round to the farmhouse. Moorlands comprises an attractive, well-apportioned property surrounded by formal gardens and overlooking its own land from almost every room. The property benefits from a separate access leading to the buildings.

The layout has been thoughtfully redesigned in recent years with the house having been extended and remodelled to provide fabulous living and entertaining spaces designed so as to take full advantage of the southerly aspect and views over the gardens to the paddocks beyond.

The configuration of the house also allows for one end of the house to be used independently as a separate three bedroom cottage with its own access. The accommodation is arranged over two floors with one second storey room and includes a spacious entrance hall off which the drawing room, cinema and kitchen/family/dining rooms can be accessed. The drawing room is triple aspect with French doors opening onto sun filled garden terraces. The fabulous kitchen/family/dining room is the heart of the house with a part glazed roof and travertine stone tiled floors, a luxury painted timber kitchen, 4 oven Everhot cooker and a commanding island unit looking out onto the paddocks. The sitting/dining area leads through opening glazed doors to the south facing terrace and gardens. A glazed link leads on to a separate family room, hobby room and study/bedroom 7. In addition, there is a large walk-in larder located off the kitchen and a utility room with independent access via the back door.

Stairs from the entrance hall lead up to a galleried landing giving access to the master bedroom with feature windows, a dressing room and ensuite bathroom together with a further two ensuite bedrooms and glazed walkway. Stairs from the landing lead up to a turret style bedroom on the second floor with 360-degree views over the property. The glazed walkway leads to the eastern end of the property and provides further accommodation which can be isolated from the main house. With an independent staircase, it includes a further two/three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Doors from the kitchen/breakfast room lead out on to an attractive terrace with Pergola and steps down to the lawn with herbaceous borders, an orchard with wildflowers and a reflective pond.


Adjacent to the house are two stable blocks arranged in an L-shape and extending to 8 stables with a secure tack room and feed room set around a concrete yard and with a gateway leading into an enclosed outdoor school with a sand surface.

Beyond the stables is a general purpose hay/machinery store and a further fully enclosed stable barn with 4 boxes and a loose turnout area leading out to a paddock. In addition there is a double timber panel muck heap. The buildings benefit from mains water and electricity.


Falling away to the south of the property and with access directly off the main drive, the land extends to 16 acres of pasture land enclosed by recently installed post and rail fencing. Split into a number of paddocks, the land benefits from mains water and mains electric fencing. The furthest most paddocks have been left as a nature area.
