Set in 7.5 acres, the property offers flat, well-maintained and well-fenced paddocks for grazing. The stables are set within a field on a concrete base. The land extends away to the rear of the house with gated access to the side of the barn.
The land is currently divided into two smaller paddocks and one large paddock with access gate to farmland and a public footpath running alongside.
The stable block is made up of three loose boxes, one of which is a foaling box. There is also a tack room and the block has power and water access.
Other outbuildings include a detached pole barn with corrugated iron and weather boarding with two electric roller shutter doors and large concrete parking area to the front. This could provide further stabling options or garaging and storage/workshop options.
Outside the house is a lawned area with some pretty flower beds and established trees and shrubs and post-and-rail fencing. Within the front garden is a large garage with electric roller shutter door and a garden shed.
The home is a detached brick-built converted barn believed to date from around the 18th century.
There are several traditional and historical features inside, such as vaulted ceilings, inglenook fireplaces, oak ledge and brace doors and some unique original oak timbers.
The kitchen/breakfast room is dual aspect with beamed ceiling, feature brick wall and quarry floor tiles. It boasts a range of oak wall and floor units, including useful carousel corner cupboards and integrated recycling bins, set around granite worktops, breakfast bar, sink and large four-stove oven.
