An imposing detached five bedroom residence set in just under 10 acres with excellent equestrian facilities is our Home of Distinction.
This family home has an impressive mature setting and the accommodation includes three reception rooms, five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Original features include high ceilings, dado rails, deep skirtings, ornate coving and some original windows.
There is further potential to alter the property subject to gaining any necessary planning consent. The gardens and grounds include mature gardens with a “secret garden” and excellent equestrian facilities beyond.
Cardwells Farmhouse has an in/out drive which leads through the mature grounds. There is a large parking area up to the front door and garages. The dining kitchen enjoys views and access to the rear grounds. A feature brick fireplace can also be found here. There is a range of wall and base mounted kitchen units and a central island.
A mixture of Corian and hardwood work surfaces have been used. Integrated appliances include an electric hob with extractor over, a double oven, two fridges, a freezer and dishwasher.
The dining room and lounge both have doors leading to the rear patio.
The study is fully fitted with Neville Johnson mahogany bookcases and cupboards. There is also a wc and utility room.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom is fully fitted with Neville Johnson furniture. There are two family bathrooms and one bedroom has an en suite.
Externally, there are two double garages. The gardens and grounds are immaculate and include large lawned areas with mature trees and a “secret garden” including well designed bedded areas and a koi pond, ornamental stream and seating areas.
The remainder of the land is down to pasture and makes a fantastic addition to the equestrian facilities at the property.
The equestrian facilities have been well thought out and include seven loose boxes. There is also a manège which is fully drained and has a rubber granular surface.
In addition there are further storage areas and a tack room. Two of the stables currently have an informal alternative use as a gym. A chicken enclosure can also be found to the side of the stabling facilities.
