Set in 10 acres, the impressive equestrian facilities have been improved significantly over the last 10 years. There is an immaculate stable yard with 12 spacious loose boxes as well as six additional temporary boxes. The boxes are bordered by the moat.
As well as an outdoor school built by Martin Collins, there is a lunge ring and a sand surfaced paddock.
There is a lovely tack room and on-site accommodation for staff.
Other high-tech features of the yard inclue a therapy room and a solarium.
The brick built house sits on its own island.
A wooden bridge connects the patio to the garden and wooded area on the far side of the moat. A large patio extends from the house with steps leading down to the moat. Pretty formal gardens also lead to an outdoor pool which is hidden away within a walled area and bounded by the games room and a covered recreation area.
Inside, there are eight bedrooms, six bathrooms and six reception rooms in total with oak floorboards throughout many of the rooms.
