Set within 4.5 acres coupled with extensive stabling, barns and a full sized school, the set up is ideal for the budding equestrian and additionally benefits from superb off-road hacking routes available directly from the doorstep.
The house itself was formerly a period cottage which was significantly extended in the 1970s into a sizable family home extending to some 2,000 sq.ft which offers great scope for modernisation to bring it up to today's needs. On the ground floor, there are three reception rooms and a kitchen set around a central hallway. A utility room has side access perfect for bringing in muddy wellies and paws, beside a downstairs WC. On the first floor, there are five double bedrooms, a shower room and en-suite bathroom to the main bedroom. There is scope for general updating and the opportunity for the new owners to put their stamp on it. The property is complemented by beautiful gardens arranged predominantly to the rear with a further small garden at the front screening the property from the lane with mature trees. The wonderful rear garden is of good-sized with a great degree of privacy laid mostly to lawn. At the far end there is a summerhouse with power connected. Beside the house, there is a large, gravelled parking bay in front of a detached double garage which also has power, lighting and loft storage above.
The further adjoining 4 acres of land is arranged into five fenced paddocks. The stable block comprises 9 stables and a tack room, whilst there are two barns for storage. Power is connected to the stables and barn, plus there is a water point and external power socket fitted at a wash down/clipping bay. There is further water connected to a trough within one of the paddocks. The full sized arena is fully enclosed with fencing. A private gate leads directly out to the public bridle path for easy, convenient off-road riding.
