Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A state of the art equestrian property in 48 acres.

A stone entrance with wrought iron gates and a driveway leads to a most attractive farmhouse built from Cotswold stone and offering generous accommodation. The drawing room features a large stone inglenook fireplace and attractive polished stone floor, the dining room has a fireplace, which houses a wood burning stove and has glazed doors to outside. The kitchen/ breakfast room is the hub of the house and is fitted with a range of kitchen furniture and is large enough to house a farmhouse style table. A stable door leads to the conservatory which has doors opening on to the pool terrace. The master bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling with timber beams, a spacious bathroom and concealed clothes storage. Bedrooms two and three also benefit from en-suite bathrooms, with the two further bedrooms sharing the family bathroom. Outside there is a heated swimming pool which is enclosed by a high wall with built in barbeque.

There is a modern detached, two storey stone building, built in 1990, housing two staff cottages (1 x 1 bedroom and 1 x 2 bedrooms), a games room, a covered car parking area and steps down to a useful basement store. Beyond this building there is a horse walker (available by separate negotiation) and a hard tennis court with summer house. Foundations are also in place next to the hard surfaced court for an astroturf court.

NB. There is further potential to extend the current farmhouse if required, subject to the usual consents. Planning permission was granted but lapsed in 2010.

Stabling, Gardens and Grounds
The grounds of approximately 48 acres include paddocks, some woodland with a pretty stream, all of which provides the ideal opportunity for a purchaser with equestrian interests to benefit from a ready to occupy estate set amongst beautiful Oxfordshire countryside with excellent hacking close by.

Across the courtyard from the house, there is a stable yard comprising 12 loose boxes, tack room, hay room, wash room and feed room. These are laid out in the traditional 'U' shape, with a large raised bed in the centre. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with sporadic mature trees and shrubs. The close proximity of the farmhouse and staff cottages to the courtyard stables allows for some of the horses to be stabled close at hand.

Equestrian Centre
The equestrian facilities at Horsehay Farm are first class, the majority of which are set away from the house and benefit from an additional and separate road access. There is an outdoor ménage measuring about 22m x 55m with a rubber Equi-sand surface. The large American barn has 10 loose boxes. To one side, there are 4 outdoor corals (one per 2 loose boxes) allowing the horses outside. There is also a tack room, wash area, hay store and feed store. To one end of the American barn, there is a reception area with disabled WC, staircase hall with storage cupboard, kitchen with fitted units and a store room. The latter has access back into the stable. Upstairs, there are two spacious offices, wc's and a fitted kitchen. There is an entertaining room (59ft x 38ft) with views over the ménage and farm.

Local leisure activities in the area include walking, cycling or riding with miles of unspoilt countryside surrounding the property. For those with equestrian interests there is hunting with the Warwickshire, Heythrop and Bicester with Whaddon Chase Hunts; polo at Kirtlington; racing at Stratford, Warwick and Cheltenham. Nearby golf courses include Tadmarton Heath, Rye Hill, Brailes, Chipping Norton and Heythrop Park Country Club. Silverstone is also easily accessible for motoring enthusiasts. There is also The Royal Shakespeare theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon with further theatres at Chipping Norton and Oxford.
