Moor House in Moor Lane, Glyndebourne originally formed part of the Glyndebourne Estate, and is understood to date from circa 1873, with later additions, having been built on the site of
a much older house.
Moor House has been the subject of an extensive and sympathetic renovation programme, which has been undertaken by the current owners.
Internally the house provides well proportioned, elegant and stylish accommodation, with good natural light, arranged over three floors.
Features of note include a spacious kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of cream shaker style units with granite work tops, a two oven Aga, a Rangemaster cooker and a wine fridge. From the
kitchen/breakfast room French double doors give access to a wide paved terrace. Further notable features include attractive open fireplaces in both the drawing room and sitting room, a wood burning stove in the dining room, some panelled doors and sash windows.
From the upper storeys of the house there are some stunning far reaching views over the unspoilt countryside and to the South Downs beyond.
From the lane a wooden five-bar entrance gate leads to a wide gravel parking area, with a lawn and central clipped yew to one side.
An archway to the side of the house leads through a hedge to a vine clad walkway, which gives access to the principal formal gardens.
Lying immediately adjacent to the rear of the house is a wide gravel and paved sitting area with a large lawn beyond, bounded by various well stocked herbaceous beds, and there is a semi-circular gravel path with a summer house to one side.
A stream borders part of the formal gardens. Beyond the gravel path is a picturesque pond, with a wild grass meadow to one side which is bordered by Sussex Post and rail fencing, and numerous specimen trees.
The very pretty secluded gardens at Moor House provide a wonderful setting for the property.
