This attached property is set on the edge of a small courtyard development.
There is an outdoor arena measuring 55x25m with a carpet fibre and sand surface. This has been recently topped up and a decked observation area has been added. Beyond the arena is a concrete hard standing area with a small workshop.
There is a purpose-built stable yard with six loose boxes, including two foaling boxes, plus a tack room, and a central wash and storage area. The yard has light and power with electric sockets, etc. Beyond the stables there is a large yard/area of hardstanding providing parking and also a monopitch barn/hay store.
The land is divided into two main blocks with just over seven acres adjoining the outbuildings. The land is fairly level in four main paddock areas currently sub-divided and enclosed by a mixture of post and rail fencing and hedging. There is a further block of just under five acres, accessed via a trackway at the top of the land via a small ford, divided into two paddocks and used by the vendors for hay, summer grazing, cantering and schooling.
The house is approached through the courtyard development, passing under an archway that leads to a block of carports of which the property owns one. There is parking to the front of the house, and to the rear there is an enclosed garden with decked area, lawned gardens and a garden building, which is currently used as a home office with air source air conditioning for heating.
Inside the house is an entrance hall and cloakroom. There is also a sitting room with double doors leading to the patio.
The open plan kitchen/dining room has granite work tops and opens into an orangery/garden room.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, with an en-suite to the master bedroom. There is also a family bathroom.
