    Welcome to Gallop View. In brief, the property contains a four or five-bedroom country house, three acres of well-maintained land, storage and stabling.

    The setting on the edge of Risbury is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside which provides many miles of good off road hacking and dog walking.

    According to the agents, Gallop View was built around 1989 and was formerly used as a racehorse training establishment. The bulk of the land and stables were subsequently separated and the property now provides the ideal set-up for the rider with a few horses or someone who envisages a livery yard.

    Beyond the garden is a gravel stone drive which leads through a paddock to the stable yard where there are four stables and a newly built oak barn which is used for stabling. The yard is of timber construction and has light, power and water supplies. There is also a storage shed and a lean-to hay store.

    Unfortunately, this guy is not included in the sale…

    The three acres of land includes paddocks for grazing which have been divided by electric fencing. This large field lies beyond the stables in one excellent level square paddock part enclosed with post and rail fencing with water supply to a tap.

    The detached family home has accommodation set across two floors and to the rear is a lawned garden with a number of mature shrubs and a patio area ideal for entertaining. There is also plenty of parking around the house.

    The kitchen/breakfast room boasts two side windows, rear window, tiled floor, built-in range of base and eye level units with work surfaces incorporating double electric oven and four ring hob with extractor hood and a breakfast bar.

    The bedrooms are particularly spacious with lots of natural light. The main bedroom includes en-suite facilities and the other four bedrooms are served by a main bathroom.
