Purchasers are rarely afforded the opportunity to acquire such an immaculately presented country home. Set in approximately 55.91 acres, The Vineyard offers the complete package with an impressive house, gardens, equestrian facilities and productive grassland.

The House - The property is located at the end of a long private driveway and is set against the dramatic backdrop of the Grade I and II Listed Hawkstone Park Follies.

The house itself is exceptional and totally private. The living and sleeping accommodation is generous, spacious and comfortable. Windows are in abundance offering plenty of light and together with the slightly elevated position interesting views from all aspects.

The front door leads from the front garden, patio and parking area and into a high ceilinged hallway with doors leading to;

Lounge - With an open fire, a beautiful seating area set in the bay window and double connecting French doors leading to the dining room.

Study - With fitted cupboards, shelving and drawers, leading through to;

Garden Room/Games Room - With parquet flooring and double doors leading to the garden.

Dining Room - With a log burner, patio doors leading to the outdoor patio and seating area and a door leading to the central hallway.

Central Hallway/Snug - With an attractive fireplace and log burner and further doors to the remainder of the ground floor accommodation.

Utility - With fully fitted units and refrigerator, built in storage and a door to the rear garden area.

Shower Room - With shower, wc and basin.

Ground Floor Bedroom - With fitted wardrobes.

Kitchen - Of particular note is the beautiful and fully fitted top of the range kitchen with granite worktops, a central island and breakfast bar, ample cupboards, drawer and larder storage and a full range of Siemens fitted appliances including a steam oven, baking oven, microwave oven, induction hobs and coffee machine.

The kitchen roof lights are electrically operated and are rain sensitive and the kitchen benefits from underfloor heating.

The adjoining orangery was constructed in 2017 and also benefits from underfloor heating and double patio doors to the garden.

A staircase leads from the main hallway to the first floor split level, galleried landing area and four large double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom comprising freestanding bath, wc, basin and built in wardrobes.

Family Bathroom - The family bathroom benefits from underfloor heating, a freestanding bath, shower, wc and basin in a vanity unit.

A door leads from the landing area to a delightful footbridge which leads onwards to the terraced garden area to the rear of the property.

Domestic Outbuildings - The property benefits from a number of domestic outbuildings including a small brick under tile range with two storage areas and a plant room, a covered log store, a greenhouse and a timber garden shed.

Offices And Garaging - An added bonus is the three bay garage building with offices over. Planning permission for the building was obtained in 2011 and it was erected soon after. The attractive building comprises three garages with remote controlled up and over doors on the ground floor and steps leading to the first floor with two large office areas each with double doors to balconies, a kitchen with storage units, sink and breakfast bar and a cloakroom with wc and basin.

Equestrian And Agricultural Outbuildings - There is a useful range of quality equestrian and agricultural buildings and facilities including:

Brick under tile range comprising two stables and two stores.

Timber clad range of five stables each with rubber matted floors, a tack and feed store, a further workshop/store and a covered area, all located around a central concrete yard.

Covered hay and straw shed with a concrete floor.

Three bay, open fronted implement store (45ft x 18ft with a 5ft overhang) of galvanised steel construction and mass concrete walls with Yorkshire boarding above.

Six bay, open fronted timber clad implement store of galvanised steel construction (90ft x 28ft).

Menage - The all-weather menage is approximately 45m x 25m and has a post and rail boundary fence. It is fully floodlit and was resurfaced in 2017 with a Flexiride surface from Equestrian Direct. In addition it has galvanised mirrors for training.

Garden - The gardens are extensive and beautiful and have several interesting features including sandstone walls, two ponds, a decked pergola and 1000 year old yew tree. The lawned areas are divided by yew hedges, shrub borders, rockeries and flower beds and the views over surrounding countryside are extensive.

Rainwater is collected via water butts and recycled for use in the garden.

Land - The land comprises approximately 34.91 acres of productive and gently sloping grassland some of which has been reseeded recently. All external boundaries are stock proof and many of the fences have been renewed and hedges laid and replanted in recent years.

Woodland - A principal feature of the property is the wooded sandstone escarpment that adjoins the parkland and follies of Hawkstone Park and features Grade II listed retaining walls and tower. The woodland is entirely private to the house and provides a wonderful backdrop with so many mature native species interest with rhododendrons and azaleas to name just two.

Electric Gates - The property is accessed via double electric gates from the roadside which provide an extra element of security. These can be controlled from both the house and the office and garage building. The gates are regularly serviced and benefitted from a new motor in 2017.

Solar Photovoltaic System - An 8kw array of solar panels was installed on the roof of one of the agricultural buildings in 2016. This installation is connected to the house, office and garage building and the outbuildings and we believe excess electricity generated is exported to the grid.

Security - The office and garage building and the stable block benefit from a built in alarm system.

Services - The house benefits from:
Mains electricity
Private water supply via a borehole. A new pump was installed in 2017 and a water treatment plant with UV filter and PH and nitrate controls was installed in 2015.
Oil fired central heating
Water heating via the log burner in the snug
Private drainage
8kw solar photovoltaic system

The offices benefit from;
Mains electricity (metered separately from the house)
Private drainage (separate to the house)
Private water supply via the borehole (not metered separately from the house)
Also connected to the solar PV system
