DESCRIPTION Moreleaze Farm is a well-proportioned family home set within approximately 22 acres which includes a private nature reserve with a lake, pasture land and formal gardens. Originally built approximately 27 years ago, the property has been sympathetically extended and enhanced by the current owners to create spacious and flexible accommodation with the added benefit of a detached home office with potential to create a separate annex.
The house offers the perfect lay out for modern day living. A welcoming hallway leads into a drawing room with open fire and French doors leading out to the garden. Further along from the hall is a dining room, a generous study and a second sitting room. Continuing through the house, a light and airy farmhouse kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of solid oak units, granite work surfaces and a bespoke dresser.
The kitchen leads through to a large utility/boot room which has plenty of space for the usual appliances. At this end of the house there is also a shower room and an external door. Following on from here is an impressive drawing room, designed to take a full-sized snooker table, whilst this room maximises the property's sunny orientation and includes triple aspect windows with lovely views across the gardens. From this room there is also an oak staircase which rises to the first floor where there is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and built in wardrobes.
An oak staircase in the main hall leads to the first floor. The master bedroom benefits from triple aspect windows, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a large guest suite complete with fitted wardrobes and another large en-suite bathroom.
Outside, there is a detached double garage which has been extended adding a separate room which could serve a variety of uses such as music room or home office. There is also plenty of parking. The formal gardens and grounds extend to about an acre and are mainly laid to lawn with a large terrace which is perfect for alfresco dining. There is a detached stable block with two stables in the garden along with a small pond and summerhouse.
The land extends beyond the garden and into the distance and includes around 18.5 acres of pasture land plus a private nature reserve extending to about 2 acres with a stunning 300 sq ft chalet/summerhouse and a small lake within. Due to being level and well-established land, this makes the property ideal for those with an equestrian or livestock interest. A seldom used public footpath crosses the nature reserve and into the two adjoining paddocks.
