Description

Weirstock Farm is an impressive Regency fronted farmhouse in a peaceful rural location reached along a long gravelled driveway surrounded by open farmland and some woodland. Dating from the early 1800s there are many elegant features including 10ft high ceilings in the reception rooms as well as tall sash windows with their original shutters. The house was extended in 2006/07 with a sympathetic oak framed construction to create good family accommodation. Attention to detail is evident throughout in the quality floorings, contemporary bathrooms, as well as a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with solid wood units, granite work surfaces, an Aga and Neff appliances. The property has recently been re-decorated throughout with accommodation over 3 floors and far reaching views to all aspects.

Outside
The property enjoys a private, rural location with a discreet gated entrance opening onto a long cherry tree lined driveway leading to a further automated gated entrance. There is a parking sweep to the front and side of the house as well as a double cartlodge next to a superb oak framed home office. Beyond is spacious hard-standing for horse lorries. The well tended formal gardens lie to the front and side of the house incorporating a heated swimming pool. To the rear is a chicken coop and dog kennel. Fenced paddocks surround the property to all aspects and water is laid onto most.

Excellent equestrian facilities include a stableyard with 9 loose boxes, a solarium and washdown area as well as a traditional barn currently used for hay, straw, feed and tack storage whilst the mezzanine level provides a games area. There is also a workshop and further store. In addition there is a 50' x 30' fibre sand arena with full irrigation and a 5 horse horsewalker. Significantly there is direct access onto about 80 miles of East Anglian Farm Rides.
