    Is Lower Trough Farm your forever home?

    The main home is a spacious detached four-bedroom equestrian family property with attached barn, set in 22 acres of green countryside. As well as a remote, rural location, there is plenty of hacking available on quiet country lanes.

    The property has previously been utilised as a stud and a set-up for competition horses. There are several outbuildings, including a stable barn with six loose boxes and a wash box, and a second stable barn with two loose boxes.

    There is also a hay barn, a tack room and two additional barns. One is currently used as a home gym.

    Outside, you will also find a 30x60m sand arena with river sand surface. The land is currently divided into five large fields, with a natural spring water supply.

    The four-bedroom home has a south facing stone slab patio area and a lawn. A five-bar gate gives access to a further patio area with lawns and mature trees and shrubs. A foot gate leads to the land.

    At ground level you will find a boot room with stable door and a kitchen/breakfast room with a range of wall and base units with granite work surfaces and breakfast bar with wooden worktop.

    The living room boasts a window, two radiators, exposed ceiling beam, multi-fuel burner set in a stone fireplace, slate
