A village equestrian property with 16 acres of ringfenced land
A splendid village equestrian property, Stone Barn Farm comprises a three-bedroom single storey home, with an extensive adjoining wing of double car port with office, workshop and stores, within a ring fenced block of 16.2 acres of pasture paddocks, together with indoor stables, 20m x 60m sand and rubber based outdoor arena and other associated buildings.
Unlisted, but within Lyddington's conservation area, the property is in the centre of the village, set back from the road with generous parking on a private drive to the front of the house and wide access to the land and buildings to the side of the house. There is a real sense of arrival.
The ironstone under pantile house was converted in circa 2003. It retains character and charm, combined with modern double glazed windows and the benefit of a solar panel system, with associated battery packs, installed in 2023 that, to date, has more than covered the wider property's electrical requirements.
The 36' open plan family dining farmhouse kitchen, with central island and gas fired Aga, is the impressive core to the home, with its vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and wide stone fireplace, with hooded raised grate. Adjoining the kitchen to the west is a large utility/boot room, also accessed from the car port and, to the east, a large conservatory that overlooks the gardens and offers views over much of the land. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom with separate shower, whilst bedrooms two and three are served by the full suite family bathroom, with separate shower unit.
The property has two gated entrances within its walled frontage to the village, and is approached through a large gravelled drive to the house, with ample space for cars and equine vehicles. The domestic gardens lie to the rear of the house, to its north east and south, are lawned, with a kitchen garden and views of much of the land.
A wide hard core track leads past the house to the buildings; an open fronted steel framed tractor shed, a concrete framed open fronted barn and steel framed american barn, with its 10 Monarch 12' x 12' stables and including a tack room, wash bay and WC, along side is an outdoor 60m x20m arena. The PV solar panels are installed on the american barn roof and providing electricity for the house and buildings.
The land extends past the american barn and is a ringed fenced block of paddocks surrounded by a grass access track which the current owners have split into individual turnout paddocks which leads down to a small brook, beyond which a public footpath crosses the land, adjoining the brook. Following on, to the north, the land gently rises to the North East boundary with a track to east giving access to individual paddocks and leads to the top field. The land is securely fenced with mains powered electric rope on timber posts.
