Dating mainly from the 17th Century, though with much earlier origins, Moreves Manor is a handsome Grade II Listed, timber framed house, enriched with period features and all the charm and history one could want. Mullion windows, wattle and daub and original beams are visible throughout, whilst great attention has been made to enhance all the finer detail in how the overall property is presented. With views across undulating countryside, the surrounding gardens provide a unique and tranquil rural setting.
The kitchen/breakfast room, with wooden parquet flooring, Aga and hand crafted oak bespoke cabinetry, is connected to a sitting room to the rear, creating a semi open-plan feel. As the heart of the property, this space offers warm and welcoming entertaining space. The sitting room benefits from a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, wood-burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace, French doors provide access to the gardens, with views of the countryside beyond. A spacious drawing room to the front of the property, also with inglenook and wood-burning stove, a study with log burner, snug and garden room both with external doors and finally the ground floor bathroom, complete the ground floor.
Two staircases lead to separate sides of the house. The rear, provides access to two double bedrooms, one of which features beautifully preserved wattle and daub. The main hall leads up to three further double bedrooms, including the master with en suite bathroom, and family bathroom. Hidden beside what would have been an original external mullion window is a special feature; a low door hidden beneath a beam connects the two first floors. A further bedroom with study area is on the second floor.

Alternatively, the large windows and soft northern light would provide the perfect studio space. A terrace and separate decking area allow for al fresco dining. Adjoining the summer house is an area currently used for storage, but subject to the necessary consents, the whole building could be converted to ancillary accommodation. The gardens have a vast number of mature specimen trees, wild and formal planting.
