An extremely impressive house with equestrian facilities set on a secluded, southerly-facing plot of just under five acres. The property is located in a private, semi-rural location on the southern edge of the village and adjoins beautiful countryside. The property would be ideal for a family with an equestrian interest as there is enough space and stabling for several horses, all of which is within eyesight of the main house.

The house was re-built in 2005/6, to a stylish design brief, with considerable attention given to the quality of fittings and finishes. The property offers over 3,400 square feet of versatile space, with generous and well-proportioned rooms. On the ground floor there is an opportunity to create an annexe, separate guest accommodation, or home office suite within the house.

The front door opens to a long entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor and an understairs cupboard. To the right is the kitchen/breakfast room, with views of the front garden. There is slate flooring with underfloor heating, a Rangemaster gas cooker, and a range of quality kitchen units with granite worktops. The slate flooring continues into the utility room, which has storage units, worktops, spaces for appliances and a wall-mounted gas boiler. There is a cloakroom and stable door to outside. Double doors from the hall open to the stunning timber-framed sitting room, which features a dramatic vaulted ceiling, large open fire, and windows designed to allow in plenty of light. The dining room is equally as impressive, with dark wooden flooring and a substantial brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove. At the other end of the hall is a large family room, with French doors onto the garden. There is a double bedroom with its own en-suite shower room and kitchenette which, if coupled with the family room, could offer independent annexe living on the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are five double bedrooms, each having built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom has windows at both ends and French doors opening to a Juliette balcony. It has extensive built-in wardrobes and a modern en-suite shower room. There is an additional family bathroom, with a modern white suite.

The large outbuilding is of concrete block construction with timber cladding and has garaging for three cars and a four stable block with storage. The stables have direct access to a fenced area and on to the large fenced paddocks to the rear of the property, where there is a sand school and shelter.
