Property description

A detached four bedroom, four bath/shower room former farmhouse with equestrian facilities and landscaped gardens and paddocks of approximately 4.25 acres in a rural position.

The property has been significantly enlarged and refurbished including window furniture by Jim Lawrence, refitted contemporary sanitaryware throughout, and a custom built kitchen by Neptune with an Aga. The reception hall has an exposed feature fireplace housing a log burning stove and a French limestone tiled floor incorporating underfloor heating which continues throughout the ground floor. The sitting room and snug both have Limestone fireplaces housing log burning stoves and glazed double doors to the side. The family area off the kitchen has a bespoke range of fitted storage cupboards. There is also a separate utility room and a shower room. The landing has a part vaulted ceiling, a porthole window and a linen cupboard. The dual aspect master bedroom and the guest bedroom both have a refitted en suite and views over the gardens and paddocks. The two other bedrooms share a refitted Jack and Jill en suite.

Kitchen/Dining/Family Room

The kitchen has a bespoke range of custom built hand painted Neptune units including a central island unit incorporating a breakfast bar, all with granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include an LPG fired two oven Aga, an electric oven, a dishwasher and wine chiller. The exposed Limestone floor has underfloor heating and there are bi-fold doors to the front. The dining area has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and timbers with feature uplighters. The family area has ceiling spotlights.

Gardens and Paddocks

The gardens have been professionally landscaped and have lawned areas with inset box hedge borders, a terrace, and mature trees with stock proof post and rail boundary fencing. There is a custom built summerhouse with power, and a greenhouse. The driveway provides parking and access to the stables and outbuildings, and the paddocks which are officially classified as grazing land. The parking area could accommodate a 7.5 tonne horse box or trailer.


The outbuildings are constructed by Ashcroft and have featherboard elevations with a pitched tiled roof. They include four stables, a hay barn, a tack room with plumbing for a washing machine, a feedstore, gym/store, workshop and carport. The current owners have recently installed a 40 x 20m manège by Elmstree Construction with a sand and fibre floor and power connected.
