The current living accommodation is arranged as two, first floor self-contained flats, accessed by external stairs. From a shared entrance hall, Flat 1 opens into a reception hallway with large storage cupboards. To the left is the bright kitchen living area with views over the paddocks and menage. Further down, the hall opens into a single bedroom, a good sized double bedroom and a separate bathroom. Flat 2, opens from the communal entrance hall into a small reception area, immediately in front there is a galley style kitchen, to the left is the reception room enjoying further views over the menage and paddocks. Beyond here is a hallway with large storage cupboards leading to a double bedroom and a separate bathroom. The ground floor currently consists of 9 stables, 5 stores, a barn and a useful tack room. This offers substantial equestrian facilities or an exciting developmental opportunity.
