Plum Tree House is an outstanding five bedroom detached property which has never been offered to the open market. It has been specifically designed and furnished to an extremely high standard in order to offer sumptuous surroundings in which to entertain. The house has seated over 100 for dinner.

It occupies a lovely private setting amidst lawned gardens and grounds, bordering the protected grounds of Moulton Hall, a 17th Century manor house owned and maintained by the National Trust.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes a spacious and welcoming reception hall with hand painted walls in the style of Monet’s water lilies, a superb drawing room enjoying a lovely outlook over the gardens, a lovely dining room with an open pitched ceiling and walls decorated with murals depicting Roman scenes, an excellent everyday living kitchen, family room and a useful games/entertainment room. The principal staircase leads from the reception hall up to a minstrels gallery which incorporates a useful study/home office. There is an impressive principal bedroom, decorated in French chateau style, with an extensive range of fitted furniture and a large en suite bathroom featuring a sunken 60 gallon air bath. There is also a guest bedroom which has an en suite bathroom. A secondary staircase leads from the family room up to the eastern wing where there are three additional double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom, and a house bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached via double electrically operated entrance gates with a large gravelled area providing extensive parking and leading to the detached triple garage, garden store and an additional store.

There is a large terrace which adjoins the house to the south and west, providing an ideal area for summer entertaining. The setting is delightful and affords much privacy. To the west there is an enclosed all weather tennis court and a hidden courtyard garden.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
