    Let’s take a look around…

    The property is set within 24 acres of land and is currently run as a riding school, offering lessons, trekking and livery. There is 12 acres of paddock grazing located to the side of the house, with a further 11 acres located across the road.

    One of the main features of the yard is the indoor school, which has lighting and a viewing gallery.

    There is extensive stabling, which comprises a main stable barn with eight boxes, four external stables, two timber stables and one pony isolation stable, an additional stabling block and several other boxes. There are also several store rooms and tack rooms as well as an office and reception area.

    The main home is a detached three-bedroom house, with scope to utilise the unfinished wing to create further bedrooms. To the side, a raised slab patio area overlooks further lawns, which have previously been utilised as a jumping paddock. Outside you will also find a five-year-old log cabin.

    At the heart of the home is this open plan kitchen/dining room with doors leading outside. There is a range of base and wall units, a central island with granite works surface and double doors to the sitting room.
