Luxury barn conversion with superb equestrian facilities
Nestled in the picturesque South-East Cheshire countryside, six miles South of Prestbury, this is an exquisite, fully renovated barn conversion with outstanding equestrian facilities.
The full property, including the land, has been subject to a comprehensive programme of upgrade works, creating a high-specification, high-technology luxury home, with equestrian facilities of a quality rarely seen on the rental market.
One of three properties sharing an entrance courtyard in a converted farm, Paddock house enjoys the security of near-neighbours, yet retains excellent privacy through intelligent planning and design. The house, gardens and land project out in a Westerly direction, away from the nearby properties, meaning tenants can enjoy the afternoon/evening sun, the hot tub, and the uninterrupted views across the Cheshire countryside in a wonderful private setting.
The property opens from the communal courtyard into a stylish dining hall, via a keyless security door - one of many uses of technology throughout the house. To the right, a doors leads to a luxurious formal lounge; dual-aspect, with wraparound sofa, wood burner and widescreen TV - perfect for snuggling up with a book or film.
The heart of the house, however, is the open plan living/dining/kitchen on the other side of the dining hall. Spanning over 37 feet, and opening onto the sun-trap decking beyond, this is a fabulous living and entertaining space, comprising the stylish kitchen, 14ft island/breakfast bar dining area and lounge with wood burner. The specification is superb, with Quooker tap, wine coolers, premium quality appliances and corian tops. French doors open out to the West-facing decking and garden beyond, creating a superb extended inside/outside living space, useable year-round thanks to covered areas and built-in heat lamps.
Elsewhere on this level, there is a well-equipped utility room off the kitchen, and a downstairs cloak room off the dining hall.
Upstairs, there are four genuine double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms and two sharing the four-piece family bathroom. The principle bedroom is particular highlight; triple aspect, with en suite shower room and lovely views West across the garden and land.
Externally to the front, the property has parking for at least 4 vehicles, plus a gated gravel area which could accommodate another two. The double garage, with additional back storage area, is currently used as a gym, but can provide additional parking or storage space as required. To the rear, the 160 sq ft decking, which is both wood and composite, has a bar and BBQ area, a full size hot tub and integrated speakers - it's a superb family or entertaining space. Beyond the decking is a purpose built garden room, with heating, electricity and internet connected. It is currently set up as an excellent games room, with multi-sports table, arcade games and fully functional bar, but is easily repurposed as a home office depending on a tenant's needs. Round the corner, down the North side of the house, is a golfer's paradise - a professional-standard putting green and chipping area, plus a sports lawn area. Between the house and stables is a large versatile-use paddock - additional equestrian land if needed, but previously mowed and used as a large garden lawn.
No expense has been spared on the equestrian facilities. The land has brand new drainage throughout. The two new stables, adjoining tack room and haybarn have electricity, water, CCTV, motion-activated lighting and an indoor washroom with hot and cold shower. There is a new 20x40m arena, six separate paddocks with brand new electric fencing, a full size turnout area, a 650m circular gallop track, central grass jumping area, plenty of hard-standing and separate gated access to Woodhouse End Road. It's an outstanding, professional-standard facility, literally on your doorstep.
The property has CCTV, integrated audio, alarm and phone-controlled home-automation.
