DESCRIPTION
The sale of Rock Field represents a fantastic opportunity for those looking to acquire land in the locality for equestrian purposes (subject to the necessary consents) and would provide excellent prospects for those keen to invest in their very own piece of the countryside for recreational purposes.
The property extends to 5.52 acres (2.23 hectares) in total and has been lovingly transformed over the years into a botanical and wildlife haven with landscaped gardens, planted woodland and a fantastic fishing pool. Complete with a menage, stabling, outbuildings and 2.45 acres (0.99 hectares) of pasture land, Rock Field also doubles up as a versatile equestrian facility.
Of particular note is the pool which has been created by the current owners and is now home to a vast array of ducks and geese. With its very own boat house, decked moorings and log cabin, the pond really is an attractive feature and could provide hours of enjoyment for those looking to use the property as a base for exploring the surrounding areas (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).
In addition to all of the above, the property has also become an unofficial feeding site for the local population of red kites. Every morning and afternoon, the vendor puts out food for this once endangered bird of prey and we are informed that up to 30 individual birds currently frequent the site on a daily basis.
