The property’s four double bedrooms are located on the first floor, as well as a family bathroom and separate shower room. All of the bedrooms benefit from added storage and the main bedroom even has its own balcony from which to enjoy the beautiful views.

The property sits in a secluded plot of nearly one acre and boasts an array of outbuildings which would suit multiple uses, subject to the relevant permissions.

The expansive front garden is mainly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedging and trees for added privacy. It also features a patio and shingle seating areas for outdoor entertaining, and steps leading up to a pond under a wooden pergola, which Hammond & Stratford says is “a haven for wildlife”.

Completing the main front garden is a unique outbuilding which has been designed to look like an old train station. It has power and 1890s curved windows originally from a nearby station that closed down.

With so many facilities for horse training, rearing and care, and much of the equipment up for negotiation in the sale, this aspect of the property makes it ideal for horse lovers. But, Hammond & Stratford notes that the stables could also be removed or used as storage, so you can make your own mark on this impressive space.

The current owners have also stated that they rent an adjacent eight-acre field from a local farmer, and it may be possible to continue this arrangement, subject to confirmation.
