Welcome to Jenkey Farm. It’s set in around 48 acres and it would suit a variety of equestrian disciplines due to the amount of land and facilities on offer.
The land is split into a number of smaller well-fenced paddocks close to the stables and arenas whilst a concrete driveway leads away from the buildings to the large fields with access to fantastic off-road hacking. The large fields are currently used for hay but have scope for a cross country course, gallop track and further grazing.
There is an internal stable block with seven Monarch boxes with swan-neck dividers, automatic water drinkers, drainage and rubber matting throughout.
In the same building is a tack room with hot water and lounge area, feed room, plant room and separate laundry/rug room. There are two large internal wash bays with hot water, over-arm hoses and a solarium.
Outside, there are two separate external stable yards, including a three-box yard, with large foaling box or isolation bay. There are three outdoor wash bays with over-arm hoses, and one drying bay.
There is a further self-contained five-box stable block, fenced and gated with tack room, electricity, lights and water.
There is also a stallion or rehabilitation pen, lunge pen and a five-bay horsewalker.
The internal stables lead through to the 23x48m indoor arena fitted with composite kick boards, chrome lettering and mirrors.
The gallery area boasts a fitted kitchen with a large island and a work surface which runs the entire length of the gallery and provides plenty of space for spectating and storage.
There is also a 30x60m outdoor school with a sand and fibre surface. This arena has an effective drainage system and there is space to extend it should you wish.
The home has five-bedrooms. Planning consent has been granted by the local council for a substantial two-storey double garage with games room and toilet.
Accommodation is set across two floors and the layout is described as well-presented, light and spacious. Most of the windows from the house offer lovely views across the land.
