Moat Farm House is an exquisite Tudor farmhouse recently beautifully and lovingly restored and refurbished to emphasise and enhance the wonderful period features. The generous accommodation provides 7 bedrooms and 6 bath/shower rooms (4 ensuite), a huge vaulted farmhouse kitchen, a secondary kitchen and three reception rooms.
Set in 6 acres, it is surrounded by its own land on the edge of the lovely village of Ash, only 3 miles from Sandwich, one of the best preserved medieval towns in England. The grounds extend to the churchyard of St Nicholas, Ash, a church dating mainly from the fourteenth century.
The village has a mini-supermarket and a late night shop as well as a small Boots. The medieval village pub is very popular. Juliet's Farm shop and restaurant are visited by people from far and wide. All these amenities are within a few minutes' walk of the house.
The house is beautifully furnished throughout with a combination of antiques and more modern pieces, all selected and arranged with great care and skill.
The large garden is a joy with deep borders containing mainly country cottage-style plants and with views of the church and surrounding countryside. There are several seating areas to choose from and a large table outside the folding doors of the kitchen seating 16 people, with an option to seat more at other tables. The Weber grill can be wheeled to wherever you need it.
Outside, a thatched barn contains an attractive games room with table tennis, darts and table football which is very popular with the younger generation wishing to hang out separtely from the main house.
There are lovely walks around the house and many exceptional sights further afield.
The owners have enclosed the garden area as far as possible to contain small dogs and there are gates that can be kept closed to stop young children from going to the pond unaccompanied.
This is a wonderful house for families to come together, large groups of friends, golfers, walkers and of course dogs and children are so welcome!
There is parking all around the house including outside the side door of the kitchen.
The exceptional kitchen has been significantly extended by the current owners and is extremely spacious, modern and well equipped. To the west are folding doors leading to the lawn and garden and the large outside table.
There are three ovens (one a Siemens fast heating tower oven) and a wood-fired eco-range. This provides a glass-fronted wood-burning stove for the cooler months. There is also a large integrated microwave.
There is a triple sink with detachable tap, two dishwashers, Quooker constant boiling water tap, Fisher and Paykel fridge freezer with an ice maker and cool water filter. There is a larder with plenty of space for food storage, a wine cooler and a six ring gas hob.
The recycled quarry tile floor has underfloor heating. The original Tudor bricks on one of the walls have been exposed to wonderful effect.
This leads off the kitchen and can be a useful place to store bags, computers etc out of the way.
A very few steps away across the drive is the newly built utility room/boot room. This has a washing machine, dryer, another dishwasher, triple sink and a very large ceiling pulley drying rack. There is plenty of space for boots, coats etc. There is also a large extra deep freeze and overflow fridge.
