Five acres of land, numerous outbuildings? A Briar-field of dreams to the equestrian enthusiast! This excellent bungalow enjoys around an acre of gardens and grounds and a further paddock measuring approximately 0.25 of an acre, all located just half a mile from a local store and fuel station!
Where do we start with this fantastic opportunity? The perfect property for the equestrian enthusiast offering comfortable four bedroom accommodation, along with a range of brick, stone and timber outbuildings, two stables and hard standing to allow vehicular access at any time of year! Also, located less than half a mile away is a superbly maintained paddock measuring just over five acres (TBV), with a ménage, field shelter, hay store and tack room!
Approached from the grounds of the property, the internal accommodation of this well-maintained bungalow briefly comprises a useful utility room measuring 13 x 6 ft with storage cupboards and sink inset into a working surface, and door to the 21 x 6 ft kitchen/breakfast room with ample working surface and seating area. From here a door leads into the 17 x 11 ft reception room with woodburning stove inset into a feature fireplace. A door then leads on to the hallway, which has access into the four bedrooms, one currently being utilised as an office space, the family bathroom and further on to the official front door.
Approached from the A483 via a tarmacadam gated driveway, the property enjoys large, flat private gardens to the front and rear, laid mainly to lawn with pretty floral and shrub borders, as well as a fenced paddock to the rear of the stables. There are numerous outbuildings on offer, including a 29 x 20 ft steel outbuilding ideal for storing heavy machinery or vehicles, a 41 x 18 ft timber outbuilding including vehicle repair pit, several brick built outbuildings, and two large stables with hardstanding area outside. There is also a fully operational spray booth/oven served by an LPG tank located in the grounds of the property and a paint store. The grounds are well-fenced to all sides, and are portioned into separate fenced areas to keep animals safe. The outer boundaries enjoy mature trees and hedges to most sides, and a brook runs down the Northern boundary. On the opposite side of the A483, there is a well-fenced flat paddock, measuring approximately 0.25 of an acre, with gated access and it is in clear sight of the property.
The land is located around half a mile from the bungalow itself, has been well-maintained and is relatively flat, ideal for horses. There is a field shelter, which has been designed by the current owners to three stables, and a separate 36 x 12 ft semi-open shed. All sheds are supplied with lighting via 12v LED lamps, which are all switched and run via a leisure battery charged by a solar panel. Also located on the land is a hay store and tack room. If this wasn't enough, there is a 20 x 40 metre all weather ménage. It is of note that there is deed of partition over this land, allowing a neighbour to have occasional access over the land to retrieve timber from the neighbouring parcel of land. An agreement is in place that will protect the prospective purchaser. Soil analysis was carried out on this paddock in 2017 – the results show that only the phosphorous levels needed adjusting.
With no onward chain, this conveniently located bungalow with so much more to offer, must be viewed to be appreciated in full!
