Tenure: Freehold

One of the finest private equestrian centres in the country. Farm House, ancillary accommodation, Indoor School And Stabling Complex. Planning for 16,000 sq. ft. Country House.

The Site:
Permission has been granted for a spectacular 16,000 sq ft country house as a replacement dwelling on the site of a now derelict property. This was designed by Hugh Petter, a director at the prestigious Adam Architecture. Keepers Cottage is situated adjacent to the site of the new house. The current owners have recently obtained permission to rebuild a significantly larger house on a different site within the Estate. There is also planning permission for an extension of the current dwelling.

Headley Farm House is a pretty, Grade II listed, red bricked house with a tiled roof. It has four bedrooms and five reception rooms. Adjacent to the house is a timber framed barn, which has permission for a gym complex but is currently built to a shell. Beyond this barn is a further barn which is currently a stylish one bedroom property, with a large open plan reception room. Attached to this barn is 3 brick built stables and a 3 bay open fronted garage block.

To the rear of the Farm House is a swimming pool and hot tub together with a covered outdoor eating area, all within a walled terraced area. Adjacent to the swimming pool is the brick built guest accommodation. This provides not only exceptional guest accommodation, with two spacious ensuite bedrooms, but also an excellent open plan entertaining space, kitchen and WC on the ground floor, with easy access to the pool area. There is also a tennis court situated adjacent to the equestrian complex.

The Equestrian Centre is exceptionally well equipped and is one of the finest equestrian centres in the country. It is well laid out to enable the best possible care of competition horses. There are numerous facilities which include: solariums, vibrating floors and a salt water treadmill/spa. At its centre is the 158' x 81' (48m x 25m) indoor school, which has a Martin Collins surface, and to the south west and north of which are the stables. To the north east is the staff accommodation which is currently split into three units, one with six bedrooms, one with two bedrooms and one with one bedroom. These all have access to the equestrian area to enable the best possible supervision of the horses. The current owners have recently re-roofed the main equestrian complex. To the east of the indoor school is an extensive viewing area and bar as well as an office and reception. In addition to the main equestrian facilities is a further foaling block with 10 stables all with CCTV cameras and heat lamps. There is also a lunge ring which benefits from a Martin Collins surface and covered horse walker. To complete the equestrian facilities there is a 148' x 230' (45m x 70m)outdoor manège, also with a Martin Collins surface, and a large general purpose barn which is currently used for vehicle storage and as a workshop.

Surrounding the equestrian centre is approximately 71 acres (29 ha) of railed paddocks and pasture, together with about 104 acres (42 ha) of woodland. Within the grounds are a number of permanent cross country and show jumping fences to include a replica of the famous Devils Dyke at Hickstead. There is also an extensive water jump. In addition to all of these equestrian facilities there is an extensive 2.15km (1.33 miles) all weather gallops and exercise track, with a Martin Collins surface, which is situated within the woodland and makes full advantage of the contours to provide excellent fitness training for horses.
