This property has 17.4 acres of land.
The property is set back from a country lane, wrapped around on all sides by its land. Approached by a long sweeping driveway which leads up to the house offering ample parking, then trails further round and up to the outbuildings and paddocks beyond. The outbuildings include a large barn, stables with tack room and hay store, cart lodge and garaging, and a separate detached studio, totalling over 3,300 square feet of additional space. We understand that there was once planning permission which has now lapsed for conversion of the cow barn to ancillary accommodation, further details available upon request.
Well-established gardens and arrays of sweeping lawns are interspersed by pretty borders and a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs, and most notable is the fine brick-laid terrace that sits proudly above the south-westerly facing lawns and lake beyond; an ideal spot for al fresco dining overlooking the expansive lake, surrounded by willow trees. Further, is an outdoor pool with stone paving and pool house, and a private tennis court.
The property includes paddocks for grazing and with ample space for further stables/loose boxes, it would be excellent for equestrian pursuits.
