This property cannot be judged by the exterior alone, until you have seen the interior, where you will be surprised at the truly outstanding family home that lies behind the front door. Arranged over three levels, with high ceilings and the clever use of natural daylight, this property is bright and exceptionally spacious.
‘The Mooring’ has been in the same family for almost twenty years and the current owners have refurbished, improved and extended the original 1930’s property, with immense thought given to practicality, character and detail to create a five/six bedroom family home that reflects both traditional and modern day living. There is flexibility for alternative uses to the arrangement of the existing accommodation.
Occupying a generous secluded corner plot extending to one fifth of an acre with stunning views from the first floor over the neighbouring countryside. Early viewing is strongly advised to fully appreciate the approximate 3000sq ft accommodation this family home has to offer.
