Exceptional equestrian property in over eight acres.
Penny Mead is a wonderful, especially attractive and generously proportioned property with fantastic equestrian facilities including stables, manège, horse walker and superbly maintained paddocks.
The accommodation flows remarkably well with a range of reception rooms, perfect for entertaining and raising a family. The bespoke wooden kitchen provides a focal point with granite work surface, integrated units and AGA; it extends to a marvellous conservatory/dining room, which is flooded with natural light and offers views over the beautiful gardens and out towards the paddocks. French windows lead on to the terrace.
The drawing room is a particularly pleasant, double aspect room with a wood burning stove and French windows, while the snug, which is off a further dining room, provides a cosy space to relax or could be used as a nursery.
Upstairs, the spacious landing leads to the capacious principal bedroom with an en suite shower room, four further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
To the west of the property, is a double garage with a studio annexe over, which would make ideal guest accommodation.
Penny Mead sits well in grounds totalling around 8.1 acres. The south facing gardens are delightful, with a splendid terrace, verdant lawns, mature borders and some well-established trees providing privacy and seclusion.
The equestrian facilities are extensive and include a large primary stable block, further stable block with tack room, an array of additional outbuildings, horse walker and Charles Britton dressage arena. The paddocks are outstanding with three bar post and rail, individual water supply and are dotted with trees including some lovely ancient oak trees. The property also has the advantage of direct access onto a bridleway which is part of an extensive riding area extending to 28 miles around local villages known as The Stanton Rides.
Mains water, gas and electricity; private water treatment plant.
The house is subject to an occupancy restriction for equestrian uses which is in the process of being removed. Further details available from the agent.

Penny Mead is truly delightful. I particularly love the kitchen, which provides a fantastic focal point of the house, overlooking the gardens and the superb paddocks.Alexander McNab
