Property Description

A unique traditional six bedroom detached villa in enclosed and walled private gardens adjacent to the Wallace Monument within the heart of Elderslie.

The Moat House is a vernacular style of traditional detached villa dating from approximately 1907 in this unique and historic location. The property sits within walled and screened private gardens positioned to the rear of the William Wallace Monument.

The Moat House is constructed with a sandstone painted exterior under a slate roof. It offers well presented and spacious accommodation of nine principal apartments over two and a half storey layout. The house has a covered front porch and conservatory viewing over the level and landscaped front gardens with a screen of mature trees and shrubbery adding great privacy from surrounding homes. The covered rear courtyard has access to a stone outbuilding with entry into a storeroom within the main house and enclosed doors to both the garden and driveways. There is a timber constructed garage used for further storage, positioned within the garden area. The majority of the front gardens are laid as lawn with a screen of mature trees and shrubbery.
