Fabulous Windmill Home With Outstanding Private Equestrian Facilities

8 ACRES (stms) - Set well back from the road down a long gravel drive, this exceptional property is situated at the edge of this hamlet about 5 miles from Boston, which offers extensive facilities expected of a major town.

Briefly, the property offers a principal bedroom with en suite facility, three/four further bedrooms, family bathroom, modern fitted kitchen with breakfast area, second reception/study, circular living room, entrance hall and cloakroom. Outside, the property is approached along a private gravel drive through a set of electric gates leading onwards to a superb circular driveway in front of the house. The side and rear gardens are mainly lawned and there is a large entertainment decked area. The equestrian facilities include a good sized parking area for horse boxes, cars and other machinery, top quality stable yard with excellent open fronted 4 bay brick built cart barn, adjoining superb brick/heavy grade concrete block stable building with 5 stables finished in feather edged timber cladding, 12  paddocks all bounded by quality post and railing with galvanised steel farm gates and matching posts, jumping manege and top of the range field shelter.

    There is gated access to an adjacent ‘green lane’ which provides direct access to and from the property away from the main road and further gives access to miles of ‘Off Road’ Riding.  In the opposite direction, it is possible to cross the main road and again access further ‘Off Road’ Riding along the miles of picturesque drainage dykes of the region.

     

    SPECIAL NOTES:

    1. We understand from the owner that planning has been agreed in principle to allow a two storey side extension to provide a further two or three bedrooms and further ground floor reception areas. The detailed designs are yet to be agreed, but the planners have indicated that they would look favourably on the extension having a barn style appearance.
