A superb equestrian property set in a truly idyllic location with extensive stabling and 44 acre grounds.
This wonderful equestrian estate' is set in a blissfully peaceful rural location set amongst beautiful countryside and accessed via a long, discreet lane, well hidden from the nearest road. The estate has been recently divided and as such, there is just one other neighboring home at the head of the drive, that being the original Lloysea Farmhouse. The present owner is staying within the farmhouse and has instructed Savills to market the smartly converted adjacent barn, which is now a delightful family home, together with all the significant proportion of the land amounting to some 44 acres and including all other ancillary buildings and accommodation as detailed below.
This Grade II listed building was converted in 2006 and offers 1791 sq ft of accommodation over just two floors. The entrance door opens to a large, open plan living space with Oak flooring, matching Oak doors and architraves and exposed roof trusses and beams. Set off the sitting room (with a feature wood burning stove) is a second reception room that could be used as a fourth bedroom if so desired. To the far end of the living space is a well appointed kitchen with an electric 4 oven Aga, storage cabinets, a dishwasher, Belfast sinks and undercounter fridge. A separate boot room provides laundry space and houses the oil fired boiler, with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and radiators at first floor level. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one of which is ensuite and a family bathroom.
The two Cottages
Converted from a former cowshed, there are a pair of semi-detached cottages, namely Emily's and Toms'. The former is the larger of the two, currently a one bedroom property with planning being applied for to extend and add a second bedroom. Emily's has oil fired central heating and the other is heated by LPG. They both generate useful rental income and would be ideal for those seeking to employ staff for a livery business. Emily's cottage is currently being refurbished with new carpet, redecoration and benefits from a small area of allocated garden to one side.
Presented in exceptionally good order, the stables barn has been fitted with six 14' x 12' Monarch Victorian boxes, all rubber matted with auto drinkers. Each box is both inner and outer facing. In addition, there are two large foaling boxes, a large rug and adjacent tack room and a good size stables kitchen with plumbing for a washing machine, a sink and storage. To the rear of the barn is a haystore for approx. 1400 bales, log storage space and feed room.
Totalling circa 44.75 acres, of which circa 35 acres is grazing land. The land incorporates a cross country course and there is direct access into the adjoining forestry land for riding out beyond the estate grounds. There are a number of field shelters, a grass jumping arena with scope to create a manage if required and a most attractive area of mature woodland on the boundary.
