With a sweeping in out driveway, garaging, workshop and greenhouse, Fairview encapsulates country living, either equestrian or just to indulge yourself in countryside living.

Entering into the entrance hall, the staircase rises to the first floor.

Internally the property is in very good decorative order throughout. Externally to the front, Fairview is set back from the country road with dual entrances connected by a sweeping pea shingle, in and out driveway. The driveway provides a large amount of parking, mature hedging borders the front boundary, with the remainder laid to large areas of lawn and mature trees. The property has several access points to the rear gardens and stabling.

To the rear the formal garden commences with an attractive large block paved terrace, with raised flower and shrub borders. Adjacent there is a ornamental two tier pond, a step that then leads you down from the terrace into the rest of the gardens which are mostly laid to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and flower borders. At one side of the garden there is a 20ft green house, which in turn leads to a gate giving access to the front. To the other side of the garden, there is a gate leading out to the stable yard. The yard consists of five comfortable stables, some of which have water feeders, and also a tack, feed and hay store. In addition to this there is a separate wood and machine store.
The stable block can also be access via a five bar gate from the road with additional land for the storage of horsebox or trailer etc.. At the opposite end there is a turnout paddock leading through to the main grazing paddock with field shelter. The rear paddock can be also accessed by a gate from the rear of the formal gardens.

As far as garaging is concerned, Fairview has two separate garages both with roller doors (one electric) both with personal doors to the rear and power and light connected, one with fitted workbenches.
