    Let’s have a snoop…

    The property is approached by double opening electric gates and wooden gates lead into a parking area for trailers and horse boxes, leading onto the stable yard.

    There is an American style barn which has eight spacious loose boxes, a tack room, kitchen, wash area and solarium.

    There is a further timber block of five stables and a separate hay store. The dressage arena measures 30x40m and there is a Claydon horse walker available by negotiation.

    The house is a detached oast and barn conversion with an additional detached barn with scope for conversion.

    The classic country decor is intertwined throughout the home. Check out this kitchen/breakfast room complete with cupboards and granite worktops with an Alpha range cooker and a stable door.

    The two roundels as seen above both have doors to the outside are currently house a dining room and a family room.

    The master bedroom is set into one roundel and has an en suite shower room. The guest bedroom in the second roundel has stairs to a mezzanine office/study area. There are three further bedrooms.

    The gardens have a paved terrace and a summer house as well as trees and hedges to either side. Do we spy a hot tub?

    Is this the home for you?
