    This well-placed property, which is ideal for the competition rider due to its handy location, is on the market for £1.3m.

    Set in 3.5 acres, the property enjoy stunning views over Cheshire countryside. To the north west of the farm house are two well-fenced paddocks with automatic water troughs and a field shelter as well as a productive vegetable area and a greenhouse.

    There are two barns, one with three Monarch stables with sliding doors. Other outbuildings include a workshop, carport, feed room, secure tack room and wood store with an additional stable.

    One of the main features of the yard is the 20x60m outdoor school with all-weather wax surface and training mirrors.

    The traditional five-bedroom Cheshire farmhouse dates back to the 1800s. The property has been lovingly upgraded but retains several period features.

    The farmhouse-style dining kitchen has an oil-fired AGA, a central island and double doors which lead through to the garden room.

    Also at ground level is the sitting room, study, boot room and utility room. The bedrooms are located on the first and second floors.
