    Come and take a look around…

    Your new home is set in 7.5 acres of land, but the current owners rent an additional 25 acres. The land is split into three paddocks.

    As well as the owned and rented land, the property has the benefit of neighbouring common land over which it has grazing and quarrying rights.

    The equestrian facilities sit at the forefront of the house and include a stable yard with a pair of wooden-framed blocks including six stables, tack room and storage.

    One of the main features of the yard is the post-and-rail fenced all-weather outdoor school. The area also lends itself to idyllic hacking.

    The house sits in its own grounds and is approached down a long drive. The gardens are south facing and at the far end is a stone barbecue and chimney. Large areas of gravel and pathways are dotted with planters and herbaceous beds and flanked by low stone walls. Lawns surround the rest of the house, flank the drive, and run to farm and woodland.

    The contemporary yet classic four-bed and four-bath home was built around three years ago. It is described as a mellow stone clad house combining traditional charm with modern expectations.

    The magnificent high-spec kitchen is open plan and boasts modern lighting and appliance, as well as a sound system.
