This four-bedroom home in Water End Moor, Water End, overlooks the River Gade. It is a generous family accommodation with gardens of nearly half an acre and a double garage.

Situated in a peaceful private lane overlooking the River Gade, this is a deceptively spacious Grade II listed barn conversion, believed to date to the 16th Century. This characterful four double bedroom property occupies a generous plot of around half an acre, with a detached double garage and parking.

One of a small cluster of period properties overlooking the River Gade at The Moor, Moor Barn, Brown & Merry describes the home as "an immensely characterful Grade II listed barn conversion, which according to its entry on Historic England, dates to the 16th Century".

The spacious family home, which is approached via a private lane running parallel to the river, occupies a delightful plot of around half an acre featuring beautiful, landscaped gardens to the rear, enjoying a south westerly aspect.

A detached oak-framed garage and gravel drive provide parking for several cars. The garage benefits from a loft, which may have scope for conversion into an office or games room, subject to planning consent.

Brown & Merry has been advised by the owner that they pay a Peppercorn rent to lease the land directly in front of Moor Barn, running all the way down to the river's edge.

The generously proportioned accommodation comprises a sizeable dual aspect central sitting room, galleried to the master bedroom, with a reclaimed brick built inglenook fireplace and a beamed ceiling, a dining room with windows to the front and rear, a good size kitchen/breakfast room with reclaimed pine units with granite worktops and terracotta floor tiles by Fired Earth.

This opens onto a utility room. There are four double bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor and benefits from a conservatory overlooking the rear garden. There are two bathrooms plus a separate WC.
