About this property
Moat Farm is a five-bedroom period property, originally built in the 16th century it has been extended over the years creating a spacious family home providing off-road parking, a mature garden, and a one-bedroom self-contained annexe, all nestled into the sought-after village of Whissendine.
The property offers generous and spacious accommodation extending to approximately 2750 ft². that the owners have presented beautifully allowing the character to take centre stage.
There are three generous reception rooms sitting to the front in the original part of the property. A formal drawing room with two bay windows and a stone fireplace, a well-proportioned space that's full of light. A traditional dining room sitting just off the kitchen, also with a feature fireplace. The third reception room is the snug/living room, a more informal and cosy room.
To the middle of the property is the bespoke hand-built dining kitchen comprising a great range of fitted units with an AGA, separate gas hob and integrated appliances. The utility room offers further storage and has a stable door out to the garden.
To the first floor, the light and airy landing provides access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation. There are three double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, all five bedrooms are serviced by two family bathrooms.
THE ONE-BEDROOM ANNEXE
One of the unique features of the property is the self-contained annexe to the rear. It can be accessed via its own separate entrance from the driveway or from the main house.
The annexe in brief comprises a kitchen, lounge, bathroom, separate WC, and a double bedroom.
The property has a large, gravel driveway providing ample off-road parking and a wonderfully private walled garden.
The walled garden has been beautifully-landscaped being mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs, trees, and seating areas to enjoy the sun throughout the day. For a keen gardener there is the benefit of a vegetable garden and potting shed!
