    Let’s see if it takes your fancy…

    Welcome to West Greylake. The property is set within six acres of land. The paddocks are separated by post and rail fencing and have field shelters. While the fields are suitable for grazing, we can imagine a cross-country course looking particularly at home here…

    The stable complex is located behind the property. It has a forecourt and direct access to the sand school and paddocks. There are three loose boxes, tack room, store and an open barn.

    The outdoor arena has a hybrid rubber/sand surface, post and rail enclosure and excellent drainage.

    There is also a horse walker and a storage barn located within the grounds.

    The lake is a gloriously pretty, natural area and has been an idyllic spot where parties and a wedding have been enjoyed.

    The main house boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms. To the back is a pretty lawn and there is a studio found adjacent to the garage.

    The kitchen/breakfast room lies to the left of the entrance hall. This leads to a conservatory giving further lounge/dining options. Lying off the kitchen is a utility room and boot room which provide access to the garden.
