Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Welcome to Shurdington Court Farm, a very individual property located within a desirable setting on the edge of Cheltenham, offering the most stunning of backdrops a homeowner could wish for. Shurdington Court Farm is a lot more than meets the eye and to summarise on offer to purchase is the main four bedroom residence with formal gardens of 0.6 acres, a detached two bedroom cottage with a private garden and an equestrian centre that offers fourteen stables, a lunge pen, 60m x 20m mirrored ménage and post and rail paddocks totalling just under fifteen acres.

Situated in the hamlet of Little Shurdington, Cheltenham is accessed along the Shurdington Road and is within five miles whilst due to the properties setting, major roads such as the A417, A419 and M5 are within easy reach, therefore allowing Bristol and Birmingham to be accessed within the hour and London a little further, in just over two hours.

Returning to the property, and separating the components, the accommodation is as follows:

The Main House

The main house offers accommodation over three levels and its design and layout is quirky and individual. On the ground floor is the welcoming entrance hall which enjoys painted walls, exposed beams and a stone floor with this room giving a sense to the age of the property. The hallway gives access to the separate office and utility room, which in turn gives access into the rear garden.

Returning to the hallway, a spiral staircase leads to the lower level and the formal dining room. The room is stunning, full of natural light and again, indulges the period of the home, yet neatly linking the remaining rooms, which enjoy a much more modern and contemporary feel. The room features exposed beams, a tiled floor and a log burning fire inset to stone fireplace.

There are three further rooms to the floor, two of them are reception rooms and these are identified as the sitting room and the family room. The family room enjoys French doors which lead to a private lower terrace, where the kitchen can also be accessed.

Leading neatly into the kitchen, the current owner has recently invested in the room and now presents a neat, cleaned lined, modern and contemporary kitchen that enjoys a wealth of cupboards and a host of integrated appliances to include induction hob, extractor fan, oven, fridge/freezer and full size dishwasher. The room is completed by Quartz work surfaces, inset spotlights, a canopy light and stylish floor tiles.

Upstairs, the four bedrooms are all double rooms and all four rooms enjoy either fitted wardrobes or storage cupboards. Furthermore, the master bedroom, guest bedroom and bedroom three benefit from en suite shower rooms whilst the main family bathroom completes this floors accommodation.

Stepping outside, the property is approached via electrically operated double gates and the gravelled driveway allows parking for a number of vehicles. There is a lawned garden to the front of the property, enclosed behind walling and hedging. The driveway continues to the side of the property and into the rear where a further lawned garden is found. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn, although there are established hedges running alongside the boundary.

At the head of the garden is a timber building which is so much more than a garden shed or summer house. The building is a wonderful size, with French doors to the front and windows to two sides and in the past the current owner has used it as a game`s rooms, with the internal space comfortably housing a pool table and table tennis table.

The Cottage

The cottage, addressed as Shurdington Court Farm Cottage is a two bedroom, self-contained detached two storey building and enjoys its own parking space, private courtyard garden and is self-sufficient of the main building, and is rated as a council tax band B.

Stepping inside, the ground floor is arranged into two rooms. The larger of the rooms is that of the living/dining room and like the main house, benefits from plenty of natural light, due in part to the large picture window found at the front elevation. The rooms also enjoys exposed wooden beams, a log burning fire and solid wooden floors. The remaining room to the ground floor is the kitchen with the room enjoying plenty of fitted cupboards and integrated appliances.

Moving upstairs, there are two bedrooms, both of which are double rooms and a three-piece family bathroom.

The cottage is neutrally decorated, and one would assume that the cottage would either make a perfect annex to the main house or potentially offer an income via way of a holiday cottage or AirBnB, should one wish to do so.

Equestrian Centre

The equestrian element of the property can either be accessed pedestrianly from the main house or via a vehicle from a secondary access found to the right of the property. For those who keep horses, the set up is quite simply breath-taking, as is the backdrop that this element of the property enjoys.

In total, the paddocks measure just under fifteen acres and are split into eight individual post and rail paddocks, with some of these being split again to create smaller turn out areas. All the paddocks have water to them and two of the paddocks benefit from field shelters whilst all of the paddocks are edged by a mature tree line, providing natural shade for the animals.

The equestrian element is of a high standard and within the setup, there is a 60m x 20m mirrored ménage, lunge pen and three separate stable blocks. There are also two washrooms for the horses, one internal, one external, two tack rooms, a yard kitchen and toilet plus a first-floor office and storage area.

The first stable block located closest to the property is found within a former barn. With large double opening doors at the front and full of light, due to the large domed windows at the front, the building offers the first five stables, all of which are oversized. Also found within the barn is a wash area with solarium, grooms` kitchen, washroom and tack room.

The second stable block is located externally and comprises of the more standard stables one may have purchased or used historically, with each one measuring 11`6 x 11`6. Within this section there are five stables, each one with automated water feeders.

Finishing off the stables and the equine element of the property is the final barn which offers a further four stables, all of which are larger than a standard size stable. A stairwell gives access to the upper level where there is an office space.

Summary

Having sold a number of properties with grounds and paddocks and those that have an equine element to them, we can truly say that Shurdington Court Farm is one that stands out. Not only is the house stunning, well presented with a wonderful feel about it, there is the added bonus of the cottage and the equine centre is a step above what one may expect. Clean, tidy, with well presented, topped paddocks, and exceptional facilities, should the prospective purchasers be horse owners themselves or are looking to open an equine livery centre, you can be assured that you and your horses can move in and enjoy the property from the very first moment you arrive.
