A fantastic family home with outstanding equestrian facilities, set in 9.5 acres.
Situated on the outskirts of Willaston in a beautiful setting this late Edwardian country house stands in around 9.5 acres and includes outstanding equestrian facilities. The current owners have carried out a number of upgrades to the property resulting in an attractive and practical family home which retains many of the original features.
The property is approached via electric gates (controlled via mobile camera app, phone and fob) which open onto a large driveway with access to garaging and parking for numerous vehicles. To the front of the house there are lawned gardens and a second gate onto Street Hey Lane enabling an in and out' driveway.
The accommodation opens into an impressive entrance hall along with three large reception rooms and a large kitchen with a utility room and pantry.
On the first floor there is a master suite with a dressing room and a large en suite bathroom in addition to three further bedrooms (one with en suite) and a separate shower room. On the second floor there are another three bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a study) and a bathroom.
Surrounding the property are well maintained formal gardens with extensive lawns, and a wide variety of mature plants, trees and shrubs ensuring a high degree of privacy.
The property is superbly equipped for equestrian use with an extensive range of alarmed stabling, large manege, horse walker, a wash box, foaling box, solarium and several paddocks, all of which are covered by a CCTV system.
The equestrian facilities are accessed from the main entrance via a gravel driveway and well screened by a high hedge. A five barred gate gives access to the stable yard.
There is a superb range of alarmed stables by Scotts of Thrapston of timber construction on brick plinths under a felt tiled roof comprising eight loose boxes (five measuring 3.6m x 3.6m approx) the other being a folding box measuring 5.4m x 3.6m).
There is a wash area (a boiler located in the stables provides instant hot water for this space) incorporating a solarium, a separate tack room, large store (7m x 3.5m) and a kitchen with plumbing for washing machine, sink and work surfaces.
The stables are served with light, water and power and each box has automatic drinkers and hay bars, rubber matting and rubber kickboards.
The stable yard has an extensive area of pavier setts with additional gravel area providing ample space for boxes and trailers.
Attached to the side of the stable is a double garage with two sets of double timber doors and an additional store room for rugs, etc.
To the rear of the stables is a rough paddock with suitable space for further equestrian facilities if required.
Immediately next to the stable yard is a superb Charles Britton manege measuring approximately 60m x 22m, surrounded by mature hedging. The manege is of high quality and is fully draining with a sand and fibre surface. There are temporary floodlights which are easy to install and remove.
There is a horse walker (connected via mains electricity) with capacity for four horses.
To the south is an area of pasture sub divided into three paddocks (with water piped to each field) and surrounded by mains electric fencing and mature hedgerow.
Total area: 9.5 acres. (A further 5 acres may be available by separate negotiation).
NB: The property has had a modern boiler system installed. Mains gas is supplied to the property.
The equestrian facilities at Heath Worthy are some of the most impressive I've seen. The balance between these and a beautifully presented family home is excellent - a really wonderful opportunity for buyers.Charlie Kannreuther
