A substantial equestrian facility with multiple income streams and large residential house set in the centre of the property with a private drive
Holme Farm is currently operated as an equestrian events
centre with a strong diversified income stream. It offers purchasers the opportunity to continue to operate it as an events operation or look to return the property to private use.
There are a wide variety of events held at the property ranging from dog shows to equestrian events with a specific interest on quarter horses and western style equestrian events. As part of this events diary the vendors have constructed a commercial kitchen to service a bar and restaurant to cater for participants of the various events held at the site.
The property is superbly located for the national road network the A46 lies 2 miles to the south of the property while the A1 accessed via the A46 and is 7 miles from the property. This accessibility to the UK national road network enables competitors to easily access the site from across the UK. Newark Train Station lies 9 miles from the property and there are regular trains to London with the fastest service services taking 1 hour and 15 minutes.
The farmhouse benefits from its own separate access running from the public road with a tree lined drive leading to a large gravel courtyard area at the front of the property. The main entrance to house is to the side of the parking area, the gravel drive continues to wrap round to the front of the original house. The farmhouse has been extended greatly following the purchase by the vendors, with works nearly complete bar decoration and connection of fixtures. The vendors at present occupy part of the farmhouse with this having been refurbished in 2006 to a high standard.
The extension wraps around the front of the existing property creating a beautiful entrance hall with two large ground floor rooms accessed off the entrance hall, light floods in from the atrium above. The proposed drawing room benefits from a large fire place with chimney installed suitable for a log burner or open fire and two large bay windows. Plans for a grand staircase have been drawn up, however, this has not been constructed at the point of writing the particulars. There are three bedrooms upstairs and two ensuite bathrooms with one bedroom leading out to what is proposed to be a balcony area.
All these rooms have been plastered with services in situ awaiting fittings to be connected. The rooms are prepared for decoration subject to a purchasers taste. There is minimal work left to complete to finish the construction of the extension therefore creating a substantial private residence.
The farmhouse at present that is occupied by the vendor is accessed through the extension or by its own separate front door on the southern elevation. The front door leads into a hallway with the drawing room to the right hand that has a large feature fire place and lovely bay windows. To the left of the hallway is a small snug, at the end of the hallway is the kitchen/dining area that is the focal point of the house. The kitchen benefits from a large island, fitted units and tiled flooring with doors leading out to a lovely patio area. Beyond the kitchen is a second kitchen and utility area with fitted units and two Belfast sinks which leads through to the new extension.
Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms accessed via two staircases which could enable part of the property to be split into a separate annex if desired. The master bedroom has a large dressing room and ensuite with his and hers sinks, along with bath. There is a further family bathroom and ensuite.
Adjoining the house is a large indoor swimming pool which has been dug out and concrete lined. External walling requires constructing along with tiling of the pool. These works could be completed or alternative uses could be sought for the swimming pool, subject to planning permission.
Surrounding the house is a lovely lawned garden that has a variety of shrubs, flowers and trees providing a great deal of privacy from the equestrian facilities. To the rear is a lovely
orchard which leads out onto pasture land.

The great thing about Holme Farm - aside from the facilities and location - is that it's currently a popular equestrian and dog event centre with potential to expand and diversify, but is also very well suited to a private home with exceptional equestrian facilities which could be kept private.Louise HarrisonProperty agent
