What Propology love about Moorlands

We love the luxurious 5 star feel this property boasts, the arched windows create a very attractive façade and the living spaces are not only luxurious and tasteful but are well planned with most of the accommodation offering lovely aspects over the attractive, well kept gardens. The kitchen is a dream room and the bathrooms are all high quality spa style. The village location is so handy for the A1 yet the feeling of peace this property offers brings a good balance of rural living, away from the hustle and bustle of urban life yet within striking distance of the office. With the award-winning Cook and Barker gastro pub just across the road the location certainly wins our vote. Moorlands is a very special property that breaks the boundaries of what a bungalow usually offers. This is a unique home that thinks outside the box. The double garage and gorgeous gardens set in almost 1 acre of land, for us makes this home perfect.
