Canters Mead
Canters Mead house is an impressive natural stone house believed to date back to about 1820. Situated in an elevated position overlooking the private gardens, stables barn, paddocks and the meadows along the banks of the infant River Avon.
Approached by the front or back drive, ample parking is beside and in front of the house. The front door leads into a hallway and a well-equipped kitchen opening to the dining and sitting rooms. There is also a snug at the rear of the house, a WC and a sized utility boot room. The ground floor rooms are ideal for family living and entertaining.
On the first floor are three spacious bedrooms, a family bathroom and a WC, all overlooking the owned grounds. On the second floor is a fourth bedroom with a large dressing room and shower room.
Despite its age, Canters Mead is not listed and is not in a conservation area; subject to the necessary permissions and consents, there is scope to extend the main house to provide further accommodation and remodel the outbuildings if desired. The house is well-maintained, and many windows and doors were replaced in 2013.

Garden and Grounds:
An automated wooden gate opens on to the front drive that rises through the garden with lawns and trees to an extensive gravelled parking area between the house and expansive garage and workshop complex.
To the side is a rear drive that gives direct access to the stable barn, all-weather riding arena and paddocks beyond. An all-weather riding arena (20m x 60m 2020 Martin Collins Fibre Track Plus) enables riding throughout the year and could be converted to a tennis court if of no use to future owners.

To the side of the house is a spacious terrace that overlooks the garden, paddocks and meadows that, in turn, run down to the banks of the River Avon, all in a small and beautiful valley.
In all, about 5.7 acres.

Out Buildings
A short walk from the main house is an extensive garage building with a workshop, open-plan garage and storage. This space, subject to planning consent, could easily be converted to create a studio or secondary accommodation.
In addition, there are indoor stables, a timber summer house and a hot tub. The land is predominantly grass with some semi-wooded areas and thick native hedges, creating an idyllic and quintessential rural setting.
