The property is accessed over a concrete bridge which is built over the moat that surrounds Moat Lodge. The property has a good level of privacy as there is a strong border line of shrubs, trees and hedging to the front, rear and side of the property. Brick weave paths lead to the front and side doors. A gravelled driveway provides parking for several vehicles. The garden is established with a variety of specimen trees, shrubs, areas laid to lawn, seating areas, fruit trees, well stocked borders and beds, a septic tank and a large oil tank which the vendor has said was replaced last year. A working well. A timber shed and a timber summer house. (The vendor also informs us that there is a large cellar under the rear garden which is currently not dry.)
Moat Lodge is grade II listed property and has hundreds of years of history and once belonged to John Nelson who was the local vicar and brother of Lord Nelson. It is a unique rare find that does not come on to the market very often. The property would benefit from some updating but has so much potential. The vendor informs us that they recently had a new central heating boiler and well pump fitted.
