This comprises a fully equipped gym with weight room, sauna, changing facility, bar and entertainment room as well as a 15m x 12m indoor heated swimming pool. In addition, there is a games room above this and balcony with views over the surrounding land.

In addition to the main dwelling is a separate two bedroom bungalow with open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room and its own private garden area. Furthermore, there is a one bedroom annexe with en-suite bathroom and open-plan living accommodation. Beyond this is a 10m x 10m carport, substantial hobby workshop and a store unit measuring 16m x 12m, all of which have 3 phase electricity.
