Blackmoor House is an Edwardian style house, built in 1880. It is a well-built house, constructed out of brick under a tile roof. A billiard room was added in 1905 and an annexe followed in the early 1930s. The accommodation now extends to over 10,000 sq. ft. arranged over three floors. The current owners purchased the property in 2007 when it was divided into three separate dwellings. They carried out a substantial refurbishment programme including rewiring and re-plumbing, renovation and repairing of the roof, extensive insulation throughout and replacement of the majority of the windows with hand-made double glazed sash encasement windows. The house is now restored to its former glory with elegantly proportioned rooms with wonderful ceiling heights, providing space and light.

The principal reception rooms are arranged around a central vaulted hall with an impressive staircase leading to a galleried landing. There is a great balance between formal and informal accommodation. The formal reception rooms are proportioned to allow entertaining on a grand scale, and their large windows give magnificent views over the gardens.

The kitchen/breakfast/family room provides a delightful central core of the house. It is converted from the former billiard room with vaulted ceiling and triple aspect connecting it with the gardens and grounds to the south and west of the property. The first floor accommodation follows a similar theme of being spacious and light. There is a generous principal suite with bedroom, bathroom and 'his and hers' dressing rooms. On this floor, there are three further bedrooms, all of a consistently good size and serviced by their own bathrooms.

The second floor was previously a self-contained flat with its own independent access. Currently, it is arranged with four bedrooms and three bathrooms and is extremely versatile in how it can be used.

The gardens and grounds complement the house extremely well and provide the most beautiful setting. Electric wooden gates open to a gravelled drive bordered by low level walls leading to a large parking area to the front of the house. To one side is a two-room studio, currently used for yoga and gym, with a shower room and kitchenette. The two studios could easily be adapted to
provide separate living accommodation. To the other side, there is a small
courtyard with access to the kitchen and utility rooms. Beyond the courtyard, there is a substantial south facing terrace adjacent to the main kitchen, On the back of the house, there is a larger terrace, which runs around the western and north elevations of the house, providing a lovely raised vantage point for views over the gardens and the magnificent oak trees beyond. Steps lead down to the heated swimming pool and the substantial pool house that overlooks it. This area has been designed with entertainment in mind; the pool house has a fully equipped kitchen and living area, and it opens up on the side to an alfresco dining area and an outdoor kitchen.

The gardens have been carefully designed to be in proportion to the house; it has wide gravel paths and large pergolas, a geometrical box knot garden, wonderful generous herbaceous borders and extensive lawns. There are two interconnecting ponds with a small oak folly and decking in one corner of the garden. A wide path leads from the house through a pergola and down towards the hard tennis court. Beyond the tennis court there is a large kitchen garden with raised beds and summer house. Moving further south, we find a Victorian style greenhouse and further outbuildings for garden tools and machinery.
Beyond the formal gardens are a series of fenced paddocks incorporating a ménage and field shelter, which has its own independent access. This area is currently rented on a tenancy, which is terminable on two months' notice. In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 11 acres.
