Description
Beech Farm is a unique property, being a former farm, it has a wide range of brick-built buildings, most of which have now been converted into residential properties. The property has been converted, refurbished and modernised in order to create a perfect equestrian facility, where the equestrian facilities and living accommodation are ideally integrated.

All the cottages and facilities are located through an electric gated entrance off Beech Lane and down a sweeping driveway. Part of the driveway circles around the cottages and arrives in the heart of the equestrian facilities, where there is plenty of space for turning and lorry parking.

Cottage 1
Is a semi-detached property, comprising a modern kitchen and large living room with feature fireplace and French doors onto a patio/ garden area. The ground floor further comprises a double bedroom with family bathroom and a utility room with back door into part of the stables. The first floor comprises the master bedroom with shower en-suite and a Juliet balcony, with a portal window looking over the stables outside.

Cottage 2
Is connected to Cottage 1 via the ground floor hallway. This could enable these properties to be combined and therefore a much larger living space over two levels. However, as it stands, the property comprises a good size kitchen/diner on the ground floor, with a range of wall and ground mount units and access to the front of the property and the rear. There is a utility/boot room with access into the stables.

The first floor comprises a large living area with two Juliet balconies looking over the rear yard, double bedroom and bathroom with bath and shower.

Cottage 3
Is a fantastic conversion and a great example of modern living. The entrance hallway is an ideal cloakroom/boot room with the main kitchen/living area off. The kitchen is finished to a high standard with all the modern appliances integrated. The large sunken living area is an ideal open-plan space with two French doors and velux windows creating a naturally light and airy room.

On the same level is a double bedroom and bathroom with bath and shower.

Farmhouse
To the front of the cottages are the foundations for a large, 5-bed family farmhouse. Planning permission was granted in June 2014 for a replacement dwelling on the site of the former farmhouse. The permission allows for a 5-bed property with large kitchen and family room, lounge and dining rooms and a large games room. A material commencement has been made by way of the concrete foundations and elevations to first floor level.

Outside
The gardens are a mixture of mature lawns, secluded suntraps and patio areas, perfect for entertaining. There is a covered decked area with hot-tub, perfect for summer BBQs and entertaining. Adjacent is a lovely summerhouse with shower room, which could also be used for guest accommodation. There are a number of secluded areas to relax and enjoy the sun.

Equestrian facilities
The main stables are built of brick under a corrugated roof and formed in a u-shape. The stables are ideally linked to the cottages, with access directly into Cottage 1 and 2. There are 10 stables in total, along with a secured tack room, feed room, kitchen/office, WC and wash-down bay with solarium.

There is a 4-bay Dutch barn with 2 bays open fronted for storage, a separate fully enclosed storeroom and a further room currently used as an industrial kitchen for the vendors business. Alongside this building is another stable and two fouling boxes, along with a secured workshop and open sided store for machinery.

There is a 60 × 20 arena with waxed surface and post and rail fencing or raised bank to one side.

Land
The land equates to 9.5 acres in total and comprises a range of paddocks, all post and rail fenced or mature hedge boundaries. The land has water available. There is an additional 18.5 acres available by separate negotiation.
