Tenure: Freehold

A unique and rare opportunity to acquire a fully developed equestrian centre with adjoining three bedroom property.

Located in the village of Westnewton, this property and adjoining land has everything you need to make your dream, of a home with space for your horses or ponies, a reality.

Extending to approximately three acres, the grazing land has been split into four separate paddocks with a service lane serving each one. Recently erected post and rail fencing, new gates and an integrated water supply provide a professional and attractive setting. The land looks down on the village and provides views of the fells to the east and across the Solway to the west.

The equine accommodation consists of four stables, a tack room and feed store. The large, all-weather, schooling arena has it's own floodlights and means you can work with and enjoy your horses throughout the year. The whole set up is very private with a single access adjacent to the family home. The access lane has been widened to accept a horse box and looking after your horses becomes even more pleasurable when you can simply walk through your garden to the stables.

The owners accommodation is a large, attractive, sandstone cottage with lots of character and with a layout and space that is ideally suited for comfortable, family living.

Entering from the front, a large reception/dining room is both spacious and welcoming with a modern, inset gas fire complementing the central heating system - a great place for entertaining at the heart of the home. The country-style kitchen has fitted units and integrated appliances and enough space for a breakfast table or snug area. A small porch keeps the weather out and a utility room provides plenty of room for laundry appliances and the gas combi-boiler.

The cosy living room also has a gas fire and, in common with most rooms, has large windows letting in plenty of natural light. Upstairs are three proper-sized, double bedrooms, two with built-in storage cupboards. A large family bathroom with shower over bath completes the internal acommodation.

To the immediate rear of the property are two gardens. Outside the back door is a cottage garden full of flowers and fruit bushes and a larger, adjoining garden offers a perfect, safe play area for children.

Westnewton itself is a thriving, friendly community with a village hall that is well used by local groups. The ducks on Westnewton beck, the stream that runs the full length of the village, provide additional traffic calming! A great place for young families, the local school is quite literally just over the road with the village play area just behind the school.

As a perfect home for your family and horses, all contained in a single plot, this fabulous property really does have everything.
It is anticipated that there will be lots of interest in this property and early viewing is highly recommended.
