Perfect for the horse lover, this beautiful property has top of the range facilities. The large sitting room windows look out onto approx 6.5 acres of good quality grazing land and the all-weather arena. The spacious barn houses a garage workshop, 5 stables plus ample storage for equipment, hay etc and is ideal for your own horses and with the potential to take liveries. The stabling is flexible and can be arranged to suit the needs of the owner. Of course this needn't just be an equine property. There are many other potential uses for the barn such as storage, car maintenance or as a business facility. The house itself is a beautiful traditional sandstone farmhouse and is part of a steading development that is surrounded by open fields. The large living space is perfect for entertaining and the extremely spacious bathroom will be a calming environment for a relaxing bath after a day with the horses. We see a lot of these properties and very often the farmhouse is neglected. Not here. This is a fine, elegant home with further potential for expansion should the buyer wish. This property is rural but not isolated and will make a fabulous lifestyle home for perhaps a client looking to escape the pressures of life in other more southerly parts of the kingdom!Location
