Full description

Tenure: Freehold


This magnificent property, which is set in a picturesque and privately protected South facing land, is centrally positioned in stunning grounds approaching 8 acres. It offers a rare opportunity to purchase an immaculate country house (built 1910) with 2 additional spacious luxury studio apartments (built 2000) plus an operational equestrian business, which when inspected by The Vet of The Year qualified as a Grade 'A' Establishment in all categories. The business, approved by the British Horse Society (BHS) for several years, may also operate every day as a full commercial riding school.
The Forest Edge Equestrian Centre is professionally managed, providing an annual rental income. There is every opportunity to generate higher income from Forest Edge Equestrian.

The house is perfectly situated to the front of this fabulous symmetrical plot, which lays adjacent to beautiful wild woodland forming part of the historic Forest of Arden, offering a natural environment for walkers, cyclists and country lovers alike.

There are separate accesses to the site privatising both the residential and commercial premises, with ample parking for both private and commercial use.
The adjoining residential accommodation is self-contained and furnished to a high standard. The Ascot Apartment is independent with a private patio/garden and the Epsom Apartment has the option of use as an additional integral living space to the main house. The large double garage may also be converted into a third luxury apartment. The apartments offer a steady income for the current owner.

Further development has also been authorised for the erection of a luxury regency style detached brick built cattery. The Forest Edge Luxury Country Cattery has been approved for operation from plan by the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) and North Warwickshire Borough Council (foundations now in place). The first inspection of this has now been passed.
Space has been cleared and consent given for a mobile home (ideal for an onsite manager) to be erected just to the rear of the guest apartment. Plus a changing room, toilet and shower facility at the entrance to the paddocks.

The property is close to Junction 10 of the M42 and the Midlands Motorway Network, providing excellent transport links to fellow race courses/events across the UK. This property is ideally positioned within a short drive of the neighbouring pretty villages of Baxterley and Hurley and within walking distance of Wood End. Equidistant between Atherstone and Tamworth, the location provides fast commuting and easy access to destinations throughout the country.

Further information relating to planning consents is available via North Warwickshire Borough Council
