The Moat House in Hampton-in-Arden dates from the 16th century and still has its original leaded windows and large open fireplaces. Small wonder that the house in Solihull Road has been given a Grade II* listing.

Surrounded by a mature and private garden of some 1.7 acres, the property sits next to the Parish Church of St Mary and St Bartholomew.

Inside, the dining hall has a brick inglenook fireplace with oak flooring while the drawing room has exposed timbers and French doors to the garden.

The large kitchen features a two-oven Aga as well as a Stoves electric oven and hob. A less formal sitting room fits very well with today’s more casual lifestyle while the library has a vaulted ceiling. Elsewhere there’s a study.

The first floor accommodation is divided into five double bedrooms two of which are en-suite, and three bathrooms.
