Introduction

On the edge of a rural village, surrounded by stables, paddocks and overlooking open countryside Wheatcroft, built in 2020, was clearly designed, and has further evolved, as an equestrian property. Nevertheless, the house is very much a family home with the realities of modern day-to-day living taken into consideration and contemporary innovations included.The house is heated by air source heat pump, the modernist steep glass gables of the building have mains electric operated Luxaflex blinds, there is air conditioning in several rooms, some of the overhead ceiling lanterns are rain sensitive, and the exterior of the property, including the equestrian area, is covered by CCTV surveillance. (The age of the property means that the warranty has six years remaining.)

About the house

The house has approx. 2,383 sq. ft. of accommodation arranged over two floors. The ground floor has an entrance hall with a cloakroom and an understairs storage cupboard. An oak framed and glazed panel staircase leads to the first floor. The hall flows into the open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining/family room. The kitchen area accesses a utility room which opens to the rear garden via a uPVC porch built on the rear of the house. The family room area accesses the separate sitting room and the boot room, which has a door to the rear of the property. Upstairs four bedrooms lead off a vaulted landing, two of which have en suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom. Throughout the house there are high specification oak doors, moulded skirting boards and door frames, and all the windows are double glazed.

Ground Floor

The front door, surrounded by contemporary panels of plain frosted glass, opens to a hallway lit by the glass half-gable at the front of the house on the first floor. Porcelain, wood-effect tiled flooring runs through the hallway, into the downstairs cloakroom on the left, and continues through the open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining/family room, and the sitting room. The same flooring continues through the utility room, accessed from the kitchen area, whilst the boot room is accessed from the family area. Immediately left of the front door is an alcove with built-in shelves. A door leads to the cloakroom, which has a WC and a basin with an obscured window over the front, and to the understairs cupboard. This reaches back into the space created by the staircase, a built-in shoe rack and houses the Aqua System water softener, the fuseboards and has a screen to show all cameras covering the property via CCTV.

Sitting Room

Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the family area from the sitting room and two further windows overlook the drive. The window blinds are manually operated and there are fittings for a wide screen TV. There is a wood burner on a slate hearth and the wood effect porcelain floor tiling continues from the family area except the layout pattern has been changed to a herringbone formation.

There are double floor-to-ceiling sliding doors in the kitchen area, the family room area has similar triple doors, all of which have remotely controlled electric blinds.

There are matching Shaker base and wall units (some glazed), with space and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, and room for a range stove with an extractor fan above.

There is a lantern in the roof above. The room has a range of Shaker style base and wall units and a built-in bench with a wooden seat matching the opposite wooden worksurface. There are coat hooks and space for an American style fridge.

Gardens and Outbuildings

Wheatcroft is approached from the village through double, electrically operated timber farm gates in a half brick wall with railings. The gravel drive, with parking for up to six cars, is enclosed on both sides by timber fencing. York stone paving at the front of the house extends round the side for pedestrian access to the rear garden. The rear garden is enclosed by post and rail timber fencing with a gate accessing the block paved area around stables. The garden is low maintenance with artificial grass, specimen planting and a border along the boundary fence. Adjacent to the rear of the house is a York stone terrace, which is accessed from both the kitchen and the family areas. Situated nearby are outbuildings which include a timber enclosure containing a bar, and on the other side of the house, a timber garden shed with a woodstore.

Equestrian facilities

Stable Block

The stable block is a single span, metal framed barn over a concrete floor with a corrugated pitched roof with six clear panels for lighting. On one side is a cloakroom with a WC and washbasin, and a breeze block inner building comprising a lockable tack room with a sink and a feed store, also with a sink and a further feed store. On the other side of the barn are four double Monarch Majestic stables (galvanised bars with brass finials), each with side-hinged, glazed and barred windows. Beyond the tack/feed rooms are the space, drainage and fittings for a wash box and solarium. The stable can be accessed from a shared tarmacadam drive that is accessed to the left of the house and passes through a set of double, electrically operated gates and joins the block paved driveway that leads to and passes round the stable. The other side of the stable has an area of hard standing suitable for horse boxes/muck trailers etc. Beyond the stable is an open fronted timber storage shed.

Arena, Turn Out Pen

At the further end of the stable, is paved access to the arena measuring 131 ft. by 65 ft. With a fully computerised, built-in irrigation system, it has a sand and fibre surface and is enclosed by low fencing and immature hornbeam hedging. On one side of the arena are raised mirror panels on timber supports. Immediately opposite the stable is a 32 ft by 32 ft turn out pen enclosed by post and rail fencing with a five bar gate. On one side of this is an enclosed grass area fenced and with chicken wire, used as a chicken coup.

Paddocks and Orchard

The grounds of Wheatcroft are extensive – 5.73 acres. The boundaries are secured with Equi-Mesh and are dog proof. Beyond the arena and to the right are seven paddocks, a larger one at the back, and all enclosed by post and rail fencing. Behind the turn out pen are a further five paddocks, with five metal gates in the post and rail fencing. There is also a newly planted orchard with apples, pears, cherries and plums and the odd fig.

Locality

Wheatcroft is situated on the outskirts of Granborough, a village in Buckinghamshire, the nearest town to which is the county town of Buckingham. The neighbouring village North Marston, with which it shares a primary school and other facilities is 1.4 miles away. Granborough has a 17th-century church, a public house and a notable Arts & Crafts village hall. Its 1086 Anglo Saxon name in the Domesday book translates as ‘green hill’, which remains appropriate since the area has a long history of arable farming which continues. The farmland surrounding the village has a network of footpaths and hacks can be joined directly from Wheatcroft. Conveniently, the renowned Addington Equestrian Centre is a little over 4 miles away.
