    Offered for sale by Halls, this rural nest is on the market with a price tag of £790,000, but what do you think you’d get out of it?

    Set in six acres of ground, High Gables is complemented by an excellent range of outbuildings which comprise a stable block with three loose boxes, a tack room, an open two-bay garage, two other garages and two loft spaces.

    There is hard standing to the front of the pretty white stable block. There is also an outside power and water point and a store room to the side.

    The land for the horses extends to 4.5 acres and is divided into paddocks with field shelters.

    The main home is believed to date back to the 1620 with later additions made in the late 1800s. The gardens are a notable feature of the property. There is a generous sized laid to lawn area — which is enclosed by mature hedging — a pond and outside sitting and dining areas.

    How cosy is this living room, complete with wood burning stove, feature window and exposed timber ceiling.
