THE PROPERTY Bridge Farm is located in a quiet tucked away rural position opposite the Redgrave and Lopham Nature Reserve, fen and is approached via a long driveway. The property in years gone by had been a riding school. However, it has been used in recent years as a private residence although it still offers an excellent opportunity for equestrian purposes as it sits within its own substantial plot of approaching 24 acres within which there can be found a range of equestrian facilities including an indoor arena with stadium seating and judges' box plus a range of stables and paddocks.

Planning permission has been granted for the demolition of the existing cottage with replacement dwelling situated close by but on a slightly different footprint which would comprise 3 reception rooms plus kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom to ground floor whilst the first floor will comprise of 4 bedrooms including family bathroom plus ensuite dressing room and shower room to master bedroom.

EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES Within the grounds of the property there can be found approximately 59m x 20m indoor arena with fibre-sand surface, boarded sides, 3-tiered stadium seating for over 250 people plus judges box and sprinkler system. Adjoining the area there is a covered collecting area of just under 80' x 67' with sliding doors leading to rear paddock. Also within the grounds there can be found an outdoor floodlit manège of 40m x 20m as well as an arena stable yard of just under 60' x 29' within which there can be found 3 stables, feed room and tack room. There is a steel framed barn of 51' x 30' with a concrete floor and adjoining the cottage is a stable block within which there is a converted office/studio plus two further stores and 3 loose boxes. There is also a steel framed barn currently with 3 internal stables and space for further internal stabling as well as a stable block with 5 loose boxes and a concrete apron to the front.

Overall given the beautiful setting in which the property, cottage and annexe are located as well as its well-hidden and tucked away location plus taking into account the superb condition in which the main residence is offered having been modernised to the highest of standards in recent years, as well as the cottage which offers a superb opportunity for redevelopment also into a more modern residence and the advantage of having a further annexe accommodation and the excellent range of equestrian facilities set within a substantial plot of just under 24 acres including paddocks, we are of the opinion that this will attract a strong level of interest from potential buyers and as such would recommend an early inspection to avoid disappointment.
