The property also has four bedrooms, with a ground floor main bedroom benefitting from a luxury ensuite, therefore making this lovely beautifully enhanced and modernised character family house ideal for both young and old owners.

These could include a variety of commercial businesses that could be run from home, as well as even creating a complex of holiday letting units.
However, if it is a state-of-the-art equestrian property you are searching for, then certainly look no further, as the all-weather menage, fantastic bespoke stable complex, large agricultural storage barn, as well as the beautifully maintained circa 9 acres of grass paddocks, truly makes this property a must have property for any serious equestrian enthusiast.
