Property Description

A detached four bedroom country home with two double garages, c.5.1 acres of paddocks, stable block and formal gardens, set in a semi-rural location with stunning far reaching views towards White Horse Hill at the rear and open countryside to the front, with planning previously granted to extend/remodel.

The existing detached property has been updated by the current owners to include professional decoration, new electrics and fuse box, refitted bathroom, en suite and cloakroom facilities, a renewed gas boiler and pressurised water system. Comprising 4 first floor double bedrooms, en suite, family bathroom, large central hall and galleried landing, 3 reception rooms, 1 with an open fireplace (not in use), kitchen/breakfast room and boot room/utility. Outside the property benefits from c.0.60 of an acre of formal gardens mainly laid to lawn, with mature trees and shrubs, an in and out drive, as well as a further c.0.20 acre comprising 4 stables, 2 loose/foaling boxes/workshop/garaging or hay stores, a tack room and a feed store, leading to c.4.3 acres of mainly level pasture divided in 4 paddocks with post and rail/mains electric permanent fencing and the benefit of a separate additional access to the paddocks (used for paddock maintenance etc) via a legal right of way. The stables and paddocks have an electric and water supply, with 3 troughs sited in the paddocks. Overall the property offers an attractive package for either equestrian enthusiasts, where potential to add a manege facility maybe a possibility (subject to planning), with good out-riding in the close by Buckland Warren, or for those looking for a substantial semi-rural family home where further enhancement is possible with the planning permission previously granted (since lapsed) to add another c.1000' of accommodation, to include a fifth bedroom and second en suite, a large open plan kitchen/family room with bi-fold doors and re-modelling to the front elevation. Planning ref: P15/V0817/HH

"My experience of renting a property with D&S showed the care and attention taken in chasing me up after viewing and the hassle-free build up in getting the ball rolling made us feel like we were the people they wanted to have the rental. They gave us the time we needed to make choices and get things in order which made the move a lot less stressful - I mean who needs more stress while moving house! A personal and professional service by the ladies at D&S lettings made us want the property even more."
