Moor View

Moor View is an immaculately presented family home on the outskirts of the exceptional village of Swainby. Set back discreetly away from the village lane, this fully modernised home enjoys an unrivalled position nestled beneath the hills and benefits from sunrise to sunset views over farmland. The accommodation is substantial with large, well thought-out family spaces to include open-plan rooms and tucked-away areas for those who work from home or enjoy some quiet time.


Accessed via a gravel pathway from the village lane, the main front door to the property opens into a small vestibule, perfect for coats and shoes. Family and friends will probably utilise the more informal side door, which leads to the main driveway and garaging. This entrance brings you into the rear hallway, with plenty of space to disrobe from a walk in the hills or a day in the garden. A door from here opens to the utility area, where you will no doubt keep all the day-to-day chores away from the main reception rooms.

The large, open-plan kitchen and dining room is flooded with light from four windows enjoying the views to the rear. This really feels like the hub of the home, where friends will gather and families will relax. The kitchen is fully and neatly equipped with everything a modern home needs and has plenty of workspace for the keen cook.

From the dining room, there is access to the large living and family room, formerly two separate spaces but now configured to create a comfortable sitting area with fireplace along with a second seating area with dual aspect, overlooking over the gardens.

To the rear of the house there is a relaxing snug area, perfect for an afternoon read or nap, which gives access to the stairs and the ground floor w.c. To the front, there is a snug /study or music room with a box bay window overlooking the front gardens and a door leading to the front vestibule.

The first floor landing has doors to four double bedrooms, three to the front of the house and one to the rear. The master bedroom suite enjoys a dual aspect and benefits from its own en suite shower room. A luxurious family bathroom services the other bedrooms.


Moor View has gardens to the front and side, all with outstanding views. There is mature hedging for privacy, large lawned spaces and an area with established fruit trees.

Garage and Parking

Double five-bar gates open to a long, wide gravelled driveway and turning area, offering parking for multiple vehicles. The detached double garage has twin doors and a mezzanine storage space with a store room or small gym at the back.
