The kitchen has a range of ground and wall mounted units, with granite work surface. There is a four-oven AGA, along with a further integrated oven and four ring ceramic hob.

Off the kitchen is the conservatory/garden room, double doors leading onto the rear patio area and a family room which links the utility and boot room, along with the extensive dining room.

The property has several patio and entertaining areas to the front and rear. Leading off the kitchen/breakfast room onto the large rear patio, this leads up to the private gardens and outdoor swimming pool which are surrounded by mature trees and hedges. There are separate changing rooms with shower facilities adjacent to the plant room and the swimming pool is heated from an Air-source heat pump and solar water system to minimise the running costs which can be easily monitored. Across the garden is a purpose built, open sided oak structure having kitchen facilities with water and power connected. Further to this, is the \'Hobbit House\', a circular timber building with internal bench seating that surrounds the central fire which can be used to cook on, great for entertaining family and friends.

At the front of the property is a large garage building with roller shutter door and storage to the rear. There is a further range of four garages currently utilised for storage. All these buildings have scope for change of use, subject to the relevant planning permissions.

Equestrian Facilities
Off the main drive, there is a small track that leads up to the equestrian facilities which include a U-shaped timber building with cantilever and corrugated roof. This building has 6 stables in total with an open fronted hay store central to the building along with a separate feed room and tack room. The stables are set on a large expanse of concrete which is fully drained, electricity and water are connected. A useful concrete block muck clamp is located to one side of the stable yard and to the other is a smaller timber building with an additional two stables on metal skids set on the concrete pad. A separate entrance off Tilston Road provides an additional access for the stables and land.

The property is sat within 10.84 acres of land, of which the fields are split into grazing paddocks and cutting/mowing fields all having water connected. The land is well drained and gently slopes away from the stable yard. There would be scope to install a manege subject to the relevant permissions, as there are some good flat areas that could accommodate this. The main perimeter of the land is surrounded by a mature hedge along the roadside with post and rail fencing dividing the paddocks.
