The excellent equestrian facilities include eight stables (including one foaling box), a large storage room and tack room, and a 20x40 sand and rubber floodlit menage, and close to several show centres and woodland hacking. The grounds total approx. 5 acres. The central reception hall flows naturally throughout the ground floor accommodation and introduces the attractive oak herringbone flooring that is present throughout. The substantial drawing room provides a wonderful position in which to relax and entertain guests, with bright skylights placed in the tall ceilings, timber-framed bi-fold doors onto the terrace and views of the tranquil lake and fountain. The office, perfect for the home worker, also enjoys lake views and access via double doors to the garden and could be used as a fourth bedroom or annexe, with a modern and practical shower room/cloakroom next door. A sitting room with a feature fireplace offers an additional comfortable family space, whilst a sumptuous formal dining room sits alongside, with its own red brick-built fireplace. Adjacent is a separate, tucked away playroom. The well laid-out kitchen is sleek yet in-keeping, featuring a range of fitted wall and base units and a butler sink, as well as Neff appliances and quartz worktops. A pretty bay window seat enjoys sunny panoramic views. To the first floor, the principal bedroom suite is well-designed and generous, with a range of built-in wardrobe spaces and a luxurious en suite bathroom featuring a mosaic tiled floor, bespoke double sink vanity unit and a roll-top bath. Two further well-proportioned bedrooms occupy the floor, both of which are well served by the family bathroom, with its free-standing bath and separate walk-in shower.Secure electric gates (by Jacksons fencing) open to a generous driveway with space to park several vehicles. There is a large wrap around garden, a feature lake with fountain and extensive flagstone paved terraces to enjoy the peaceful aspects. There are paddocks and two detached stable buildings on the plot (including a useful tack room and store), a separate garden store and a building housing the log store, bin store and oil tank. The well-maintained garden is largely laid to level lawn, surrounded by a variety of mature and evergreen trees and enclosed with recently replaced post and rail fencing, whilst a separate children’s play area has also been created. Several colourful flowerbeds and area of private woodland can be found adorning the attractive grounds. There is currently planning permission for a carport and room - details can be found on Ashford’s planning portal using reference 18/00819/AS.
