You enter via a stable door into the tiled hallway

The kitchen has exposed beams, a quarry tiled floor and a range of farmhouse style units as well as an Aga and forms the central point and heart of the house. Adjacent, are a useful larder, store and a utility room leading on to the lovely bright garden room with French doors opening onto the garden.
Beyond this is bedroom 4, which is currently used as an office, and there is an adjacent shower room
providing annexe potential. Beyond the kitchen, to the west side of the house, is the dining room with exposed wooden floors and full length windows, an inner hall housing the staircase and a cloakroom and, after this, an impressive 28ft sitting room, with an Inglenook fireplace with wood burner and full length windows which provide a wealth of light and views over the grounds beyond.
Stairs rise from the inner hallway to the principal bedroom which has built in wardrobes and en suite shower room and there are a further two bedrooms and family bathroom completing the upstairs accomodation.
Nestled at the end of Church Lane, close to the Vicarage and Church, entry is via a five bar gate to a sweeping gravelled driveway and forecourt which provides parking for several vehicles. Alongside is a garage and carport with stores.
The garden is laid to lawn with well stocked borders, flowering shrubs and specimen plants. A small side garden to the left has an attractive pergola. There is a terrace off the conservatory and a raised lawn before a gated access leads to the grounds.
The grounds to the west are delightful and consist mainly of mown grass areas, specimen trees and a natural pond with a timber pier. Access to the paddock is on the southern boundary and within it are the remains of a 12th century Motte and Bailey castle. To the east of the property, there is a large workshop with electricity, wood burner and adjacent tool shed and water supply.
The small village of Gilmorton in rural south Leicestershire is a highly sought-after location, with its traditional thatched cottages and pretty surrounding countryside. The village has a number of everyday amenities, including a post office, excellent village store, three public houses and a primary school.
Further afield, there are a wider range of shops and supermarkets including Waitrose at Lutterworth, while Leicester provides a wealth of shopping and entertainment options. There are excellent transport links, with the M1 and M6 within easy reach and fast rail links to London from Leicester or Rugby or Market Harborough.

About a quarter of a mile beyond North Kilworth turn right onto Kilworth Road and then after 1.7 miles take a left on Gurney Lane. Pass through the village of Kimcote and, after about a mile take the next right turn signposted to Gilmorton.
On entering the village follow Main Street and Church lane is on the left just after The Red Lion Public House. Moatfield is located at the end of the lane on the right.
