    Marlbrook Farm is on the market with Grant & Co for £1.695m. Let’s take a look around…

    The comprehensive equestrian yard is right next to the main house, but subtly screened by the layout of the buildings. A second entrance gate from the drive leads to a fenced, gravelled parking area for the stables. There are 22 stables in total, with some currently let for livery.

    There are two large agricultural-style barns, with internal stabling, feed rooms and tack storage areas. These buildings provide two adjoining, but separate, American barn stabling units with five and six stables respectively. The remaining stables are external loose boxes.

    Behind the stables is an open yard with a large barn used to store hay and straw.

    There are two Charles Britton all-weather arenas; one 40x20m with floodlights and a 60x32m that is unlit.

    The ring fenced block of permanent pasture amounts to about 25 acres, with a further six adjoining acres that may be available by separate negotiation. The paddocks have electric fencing, mains water and good walkways.

    A private gravel drive leads to the front of the main house. Originating from the mid 1800s, the house was remodelled and modernised in the 1980s. It was further updated in 2009 to include a new kitchen, bathrooms and underfloor heating.

    The accommodation includes four bedrooms with two bath/shower rooms and a farmhouse-style Aga kitchen, with an adjoining utility.

    An oak-floored central hall has stairs to the first floor landing where there are two main double rooms, one with an en-suite, and the other with a dressing room, which has scope for an en-suite.

    There is a third double room and a single bedroom, currently used as an office. There is also a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

    In addition, to the side of the main house is an ancillary one-bedroom cottage, sharing the same entrance drive.
