    Memberton House is a fine C19th house, believed to be the dower house to the former Mosestown Estate. The house underwent extensive renovation and extension in 2006, with the outbuildings being converted and linked to the original house with an impressive two storey atrium. The property now offers a wonderful combination of period and modern architecture whilst retaining many of its period features. There is generous well-proportioned accommodation extending to some 4400 sq ft, offering both space and comfort. Set in a tranquil rural setting only 1km from the harbourside village of Whitegate there are open countryside and distant sea views,

    To the original part of the house are the drawing room and dining room with conservatory off. To the first floor are three double bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms. The atrium has a vaulted open plan kitchen / dining / living area with a log-burning stove and south-facing floor to ceiling windows. A mezzanine, with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, is an ideal area for reading and taking advantage of the natural sunlight that, even in winter, warms this magnificent room. The atrium leads through to the family sitting room - a warm, cosy room with a log- burning stove and floor to ceiling windows looking out over the rear gardens.

    The atrium mezzanine leads to three more rooms within the newer part of the house. The master bedroom, with en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, enjoys views over the garden through its floor to ceiling sliding windows, leading to a balcony running along the entire back of the house. A second double bedroom, also with en suite, has a floor to ceiling window, with garden views and access to the balcony. The third room is currently used as an office and studio. This spacious room is filled with light from floor to ceiling windows and has balcony access on one side. This room is plumbed for an en suite bathroom, if desired.

    The garden is a lovely place to enjoy the wonderful countryside peace and is very safe for both children and pets, having been recently fenced.

    The house is well set back from the public road and approached via a sweeping drive which leads to the front of the house, where a large gravel forecourt has ample parking. An enclosed courtyard to the rear is access via timber gate to the side. Also accessed from the atrium, it offers private outdoor living and a large entertaining space. Off the courtyard are a spacious garage/workshop, boiler room and comms room/store. The main garden is located in a secluded position to the rear of the house, with lawns, trees, shrubbery and offers total privacy. A sun terrace overlooks this area together with a full-length balcony with access from two bedrooms and office/studio.
