80 Acres house located in Hertfordshire Country Side, Grade-I listed countryside house.
Moor Place, in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire, dates from the Georgian era and has kept intact its period grandeur. Grade I-listed Moor Place, in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire, has it all: elegant Georgian architecture, a rich history and 80 acres of leafy gardens and grounds. Alas, for the dreamers among us, it also has the price tag to go with such magnificence.
The house was built by Scottish architect Robert Mitchell for James Brebner Gordon — the father of politician James Gordon, who had inherited the estate from his uncle — on the site of an earlier Elizabethan property. It was then expanded in later centuries. Today, a grand red-brick faade embellished by stone dressings set the tone at this 14-bedroom property, its entrance door duly topped by the coat of arms of the Gordon family dating from 1779 and ground-floor windows framed by recessed arches.
Inside, it is a triumph of striking features, from the cantilevered staircase in the sky-lit central ground-floor hall to the grand fireplaces in the many reception rooms. The dining room and the drawing room are particularly imposing and the library is the perfect place to retire after supper, glass of brandy in hand.
Upstairs are six bedrooms on the first floor, including the splendid master suite, and five more on the second floor. Additional accommodation is available in the west wing. Outside, the 80-acre grounds encompass a mix of park, farmland and woodland, with a tennis court and a swimming pool.
More Place Manor is situated on the outskirts of Much Hadham village in Hertfordshire. The village has a mix of period and modern housing and offers an excellent Pre-School and primary school, a public house and a significant Parish Church which dates back over 800 years.
