Mote Hall is believed to date from the mid-19th century and has handsome elevations of painted render, with a wisteria clad rear under a mellow clay tiled roof.
A lead roofed portico supported on Tuscan columns gives protection to the front door, which leads to a porch with double doors to the large reception hall. This room has some elegant features, including a fire place with iron grate and pine surround and a fine staircase with turned balusters and mahogany handrail. There are French windows to the terrace and stairs to the cellars.
The principal reception rooms are linked and lie on the west side of the house. The light drawing room has a south facing bay window, French windows to the garden, pine fireplace surround and decorative ceiling rose and dado. Glazed doors lead to the dining room, with fireplace and doors to the garden, and to the third reception room currently used as a snooker room.
From the hall an arch leads to the east side of the house, with a study and the kitchen/breakfast room. This is well fitted with a range of oak cabinets and granite work surfaces; there is a four oven Aga and terracotta tiled floor. Doors open to a sitting room. Beyond the kitchen are a utility room and boot room, opening to the carport.
The main stairs rise to the south facing landing. The master bedroom is south and west facing with fine garden views. The en-suite bathroom has twin wash basins set in marble and a large light oak cabinet with drawers and cupboards. There is a large shower and bath with matching joinery, WC and bidet. The guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, together with a secondary staircase to the ground floor.
Stairs lead to the second floor with a good sized bedroom and shower room, ideal for a nanny.
Mote Hall is approached from Church Lane over a gravel drive, and then a gate to a large parking and turning area at the front of the house. There is access to the double open garage, which is attached to the side of the house.
Around the house are three areas of garden enclosed by hedges, each with its own character. To the rear is a large paved terrace with balustrading and steps down to the main lawns. These extend around the south and west of the house, and there are many interesting trees and shrubs, and hedged boundaries.
There is a large storage shed and, nearby, the AstroTurf tennis court.
