High Road, Brightwell-Cum-Sotwell
Tucked away in a fabulous and private edge of village location sits Moreton House, nestled within its mature gardens of 2.3 acres.
Originally built in 1935, Moreton House has been occupied by the current owners for 31 years. Approached over a gravel driveway, the house has an unspoilt period charm which is encapsulated by the fine pillared porch with leaded roof. The rear of the house is equally attractive and pleasingly symmetrical. This is a fantastic family house with five good bedrooms and the ability for the fifth bedroom to be accessed via arear staircase and be used as separate annexe accommodation if required. There is a wonderful feeling of light, with the main reception rooms facing south and drawing in an abundance of natural light through the large windows and French doors. There is a period charm about the house that is very much rooted in itsmid-1930’s origins. Highlights include magnificent parquet flooring and stunning original fireplaces complete with glazed sections which feel undoubtedly art deco. The drawing room which adjoins the dining room and can be opened up to make for a large entertaining space and the kitchen is very much the heart of the house, complete with an AGA.
The gardens are a triumph of skilful planting and landscaping and include a stunning orchard as well as a tennis court, summer house, south facing terrace and formal lawns. There is also a large double garage.
