    Fordham House Farm is set in 36 acres of land and is surrounded by stunning countryside and ample hacking on both quiet lanes and bridleways.

    The main house, a Georgian-style 21st Century build, provides approximately 4,200 sq ft of living space, and the home provides immediate access to the equestrian facilities, parking and gardens.

    The acreage provides 15 paddocks which have quality post and rail fencing with mains electric to protect the top rails plus water supply. The top meadow has been designed to create a cross-country schooling course and the jumps can be purchased by separate negotiation.

    There are 15 extra-large loose boxes, nine of which are in the American-style barn, with secure tack rooms, wash down room and space for a solarium. There is also a feed bay and groom’s rest room with washing machine facilities.

    A double-sided stable block stands alongside the American barn with six further boxes. Planning permission was granted in 2016 for an additional stable block with tack room.

    As well as a 20x40m turnout area, there is a 25x60m floodlit arena with a sprinkler system and sand/fibre combi-ride surface.

    The house, which has four floors, boasts a south easterly aspect and to the rear are stone and brick retaining walls which surround a formal garden including an extensive terrace. Amongst the large expanse of lawn is an ornamental wildfowl pond and a chicken house with enclosure.

    The kitchen/breakfast room has bespoke units that sit beneath granite worktops and a polished marble floor with underfloor heating. Other features include Subzero fridges, a freezer and wine cooler. There is also a large central island.

    Other rooms of interest include a gym, an orangery/dining room with a feature glass atrium and a games room.
