The Story

A HISTORY IN BREEDING
Chibley Farm can be dated back at least as far as 1930 but is believed to be much older.
“It could perhaps have been two cottages at one time,” he says. “Certainly there was a farm here in the past that bred shire horses.”
Today the equestrian side to the property is very much at the heart of Chibley Farm.
“We have 18 stables in the large barn and then seven more in the smaller one,” she says. “We have loved being able to work and live in the same place.”

GREAT SCOPE
Other outbuildings include further stabling; there is also an isolation box, storage and office space. There is a large courtyard and a floodlit ménage, as well as acres of paddock.
New owners could consider taking the equestrian property on and running it as a business themselves or they could just enjoy the facilities in their leisure time. There could also be the potential to use all the space for something else altogether, however.
“There so much scope here to create more accommodation or holiday properties perhaps.”
They add: “Someone could even take on the running of the equestrian business while their partner looked into developing other parts of the property.”

RURAL VIEWS
The beautiful rural setting has also been a magnificent place to the live. The current owners have enjoyed the far-reaching views, as well as the cosiness of the house.
“It has been a wonderful place to live – it is such an inviting house.”
The house at Chibley Farm is entered via a porch and then reception hall. To the left this leads through into the generous kitchen breakfast room, which has a central island and opens into a dining area.
“I think this is one of my favourite rooms in the house,” he says. “There is space in here for lots of people and it is a very comfortable, relaxing room.”

PEACEFUL PLACE
The kitchen breakfast room leads through into the conservatory and then the utility room, while to the other side of the hall there is a family room, dining room and drawing room. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, three bath or shower rooms and a cloakroom. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and is set slightly apart form the rest of the accommodation.
“This is an incredibly peaceful place to live,” she says. “We have enjoyed waking up every morning to the sight of the land wrapped around the house.”

IDEAL POSITION
Despite their countryside setting, the owners have enjoyed the village amenities of Shillington and Lower Stondon, as well as the wider selection of shops and leisure facilities in Hitchin, Letchworth Garden City and Barton Le Clay, which are all a five to 10-minute drive away. Milton Keynes and Bedford are also within reach.
It is quick to access the M1 motorway and the A1, as well as the A6. Hitchin and Flitwick both have excellent and regular train services into London, making popular from this area.
“We have found living here really easy,” she says. “We have been able to travel to equestrian events and yet we have also enjoyed the seclusion this area has offered us. We are moving on now because we are retiring but we do hope to stay close by. We know someone else will enjoy living here as much as we have. This property holds such a lot of potential.”

Setting The Scene

Chibley Farm is set in approximately 21 acres of land. It has multiple outbuildings, including stables and barns. There is a private gated entrance to a large parking courtyard. Close to the house there is a garden for sitting out and enjoying the surroundings. Much of the rest of the land is paddock.

Whats Nearby

The property is located between the villages of Shillington and Lower Stondon where village amenities and shops can be found. Hitchin, Letchworth Garden City and Barton Le Clay are within a 5-10 minute driveway where a larger range of shopping and leisure facilities can be found.

Within Easy Reach

The property is located almost equal distance from the M1 Motorway and the A1, and the A6 is the closest major road where road travel North or South is made easy. Hitchin and Flitwick both have excellent and regular train services into London so commuting is convenient and popular from here.

DIRECTIONS:

If travelling on the A6 get off at the northern part of Barton Le Clay and onto Higham Road, continue n this road until you reach Aspley End and at the junction take a left onto High road into and through Shillington where you then tun right onto Shillington Road where the house is located a few hundred yards up on the left hand side.
