Watson Garth, Appleton Roebuck, York

Moatfield House is an immaculately presented detached family home, superbly situated at the end of a private road of just three individual homes with an attractive outlook over the countryside beyond. Whilst offering wonderful peace and tranquillity, the property benefits from an ideal position close to the centre of this thriving village.

The property sits proudly on a generous plot (approaching 1/3 acre) and has been under the same ownership since new in 1975. Subsequently the property has been thoughtfully and sympathetically extended to create valuable extra space including the useful addition of a large and flexible family room with adjacent study and snug. Approached along a private road, is ample parking and access to the double garage providing space for two vehicles. The front boasts a generous lawn and walled boundaries with a seating area perfect to view the rural aspect beyond.

Internally an entrance hallway provides access to the principal reception rooms including the spacious lounge which runs front to back and includes an open fire and French doors onto the patio with barbeque area. In addition, is the formal dining room and adjacent kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is fitted with a full range of solid wood wall and base units complemented by cream granite worksurfaces. Integrated appliances include two eye level ovens (one with microwave facility), dishwasher and fridge. Off the kitchen is a generous utility room with courtesy doors to the garden and integrated garage. To the side elevation is the extended and flexible family room with dual French doors onto the garden and both a snug and a study.

The first-floor houses four well-proportioned bedrooms and family bathroom with bath, sink, WC and separate shower. Externally to the rear, the property is surrounded by stunning gardens, mainly laid to lawn with mature borders and hedge boundaries offering a remarkable degree of privacy. There are several patio areas to enjoy the best of the days sun and a newly constructed summerhouse.

In summary, a wonderful light and airy home which has been cherished from new, ideal for those looking to be on the fringe of the countryside with amenities close by.
