Situated within the grounds of the original Manor Farm, Stable Barn was converted in 1997. Formerly a stable block dating back to the late 1800s, it has a wealth of features including exposed beams, exposed brickwork, vaulted ceilings and wood flooring.
Entering the property through a wooden stable door, a partial brick wall with exposed vertical beams denotes the entrance hall. From here you flow into the kitchen/dining room, a room of good proportions with plenty of space for a dining table. Base and wall units provide ample storage with a sizeable working area, and incorporate a Zanussi oven with 4 ring hob, Smeg dishwasher and Bosch tumble dryer and washing machine. The vaulted ceiling creates a light and airy feel whilst the exposed brick gives a hint to its past. Two steps rise into the sitting room, again laid with wood flooring with double doors opening out onto the garden and terrace. A brick surround open fireplace takes centre stage inset with grate.
Two double bedrooms occupy the ground floor with the second being used currently as a home office/study. Further on this floor is a family bathroom with white bath suite. Stairs ascend to the first floor which houses the principal bedroom. A room of good proportions, it has ample built in storage and also benefits from an en suite bathroom.
There are gardens both to the front and side of the property. Easily maintained, they are mainly laid to grass with small trees and bushes planted on the borders. The enclosed side garden includes a paved seating area ideal for alfresco dining. There is gravel parking for two vehicles and a double garage supplied with electricity and water.
The land is a short walk from the house, deeper within the grounds of the original farm. Accessed via a track wide enough for a horse lorry, this private and peaceful yard consists of 7 grass paddocks, a double bay fieldshelter, ménage and stable block. The paddocks are fenced with post and rail, with stock fencing around the perimeter. The paddock water troughs and stable block are fed by mains water. The stable block consists of 4 stables, one a foaling box, along with tack room and feed store. The ménage has a rubber and sand base and is enclosed by mature conifer trees.
