A perfect location for rural living combined with modern-day accessibility.


* Springfield is a modern, detached bungalow which provides spacious and comfortable accommodation, which has been in the same family for about 24 years. * The front door leads into a welcoming entrance hall complemented by wooden floorboards. The bedrooms and family bathroom all lead off the entrance hall. * The spacious main bedroom has lovely views over the garden and countryside beyond and features an original fireplace. There are three further good double bedrooms, one with French doors out to the garden. The family bathroom has a free-standing bath and separate walk-in shower. * A spacious and open plan kitchen/dining/family room is the heart of this home. The kitchen area is fitted with country-style cupboards which offer plenty of storage, and is complemented by a central island and solid Oak work-surfaces. There is space for a range cooker, cooker hood, and a dishwasher.

Springfield (Continued)

* Off the kitchen is an inner lobby which provides space for a fridge-freezer and further storage. There is also a back door from the rear garden which leads into a rear hall/boot room, and subsequently back into the kitchen/dining/family room. * The formal sitting room is a lovely, comfortable room which is complemented by a wood-burner set on a slate hearth. Double doors lead from the sitting room back through to the kitchen/family dining room.

The Annexe

* The annexe was built c. 2013 as ancillary use to the main dwelling and is a great asset to the property. It is perfect for dependent relatives, staying guests or older children. Subject to the necessary permissions, it also has potential for use as an Airbnb or holiday let to provide additional income. * The annexe has also been used as an extension to the bungalow in the past creating a versatile, large, family home. * A separate/independent entrance leads into the annexe where there is an entrance hall, two good-sized reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room with electric cooker and dishwasher with utility area off providing space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a useful, boarded loft space above with pull-down ladder and electric lighting and a rear hall and two double bedrooms, one with en-suite, and a separate bathroom with walk-in shower.

The Outside

* Springfield is approached off a quiet, rural lane via a gated entrance which leads onto a gravelled driveway, and to the private parking located to the rear of the property. The parking area benefits from an EV charging point and a modern, outside WC with a Belfast sink, ideal if out in the garden or stable yard. * The property is set well back from the lane and has a large, lawned front garden edged with flower borders, and is bounded by mature hedges. A large, established flower bed planted with a variety of mature shrubs, trees and flowering plants flanks the edge of the driveway creating a private setting. * To the rear of the property is a manageable enclosed and dog proof garden, which is mainly lawn complemented by a patio terrace with hot tub (included in the sale), mature hedging, and a variety of flowering plants. The garden offers further scope for keen gardeners, if desired.

The Outside (Continued)

* A paddock of about 1.1 Acres adjoins and can be accessed via the rear garden and incorporates a small, turn out paddock with field shelters. Located just inside the paddock is a timber summerhouse/home office, its accessed via a gravelled path from the bungalow and has both an electric connection and lighting. * There are two, useful timber outbuildings/workshops, and two timber sheds situated at the rear of the property off the parking area. * The stable yard is located securely to the rear of the property and is situated around a good, enclosed concrete yard which is accessed via a pedestrian gate. Two, 5-bar gates provide access across the yard where there is additional parking for a horse box/lorry, if desired.

The Outside (Continued)

* The stables comprise two stable blocks; a block built stable block incorporating three stables, 2 x 12’ x 12’ and a pony stable 9’ x 12’, currently used as a feed store. The adjacent timber stable block houses the fourth stable, also 12’ x 12’, a tack room and a hay store which takes up to 50 rectangular bales. The stables all have concrete floors and electric lighting. * A further gated access leads through to the main paddock (c. 4.3 Acres) and the outdoor arena by Pegasus, which was installed two years ago. The arena is post and rail fenced and has been finished with a Pegasus Synergy surface. The main paddock also has a small area of woodland and an orchard with apple, pear and plum trees, which could either be removed or fenced off, and also has a vehicular access off the lane.
