The ground floor benefits from a recently refitted kitchen/dining room with oil fired AGA, an adjoining conservatory offering views over the garden, generous sitting room with multi fuel stove and French doors to the gardens, utility room and shower room off.
The first floor offers 3 generous bedrooms with the master having a balcony, the perfect spot from which to enjoy the stunning views over a morning coffee and croissant. A four piece family bathroom suite completes the accommodation.

With single up and over door and pedestrian door to the side, windows to three sides, power and light, door to rear and stairs leading up to an overhead storage area.

Outside Within the front parking/turning area which is enclosed by conifer hedging, there are two timber stables and a tack room with power, light and water. To the opposite side is a raised paved patio area boarded by a raised flower bed with outside tap. A small gravelled path gives access to the front door and continues around bordered, generously stocked flower beds with a variety of plants and shrubs and divided by lawn. A further brick paved patio area with double French doors from the sitting room offers a fantastic seating area to enjoy the views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. To the side of the property are further garden sheds and the oil tank. At the bottom end of the formal garden is a lowered gravelled seating area enclosed by well-kept conifer hedging and a greenhouse.
. A grassed track from the parking area leads through to two gates, one to the turnout paddock and the other leading in to a large meadow interspersed with a variety of trees and a large natural pond with stream meandering through the meadow, which can feed the pond through sluice gates if required. A summer house with timber decked area offers a pleasant relaxing seating area and an enclosed vegetable garden will be found beside the large barn with lighting which could be divided into further stables if required. This paddock has separate road access for vehicles. The remaining land, approximately 10 acres is located immediately opposite the property beginning with a small triangular paddock and opening into a further paddock currently used for schooling/jumping. A gate then leads in to the main field which is currently open as one but could be divided in to numerous paddocks if desired. There is a water supply into the field for drinking troughs and further vehicular access from the lane.
