Property description

The Farmhouse

The imposing farmhouse is a detached property offering

spacious accommodation and a wealth of features such

as solid wood doors and open fireplaces. The front door

leads to a large entrance hall with its own log burner which

in turn leads to a formal sitting room, dining room and

through into a games room. The light, spacious sitting

room with sandstone fireplace and patio doors overlooks

the garden and patio area. Both the games room and dining

room contain fireplaces and overlook the surrounding

garden area.

The kitchen is fitted with black granite work surfaces,

complimentary cream painted wooden floor and wall units,

and a Rangemaster with gas hob and electric ovens. The

main sink is a Belfast with a solid wooden surround and a

secondary Belfast sink sits within the large central island.

There is an integrated dishwasher and plumbing for a large

American style fridge.

Adjoining the kitchen is an Amdega Orangery currently

used as a breakfast room with large patio doors leading

to a decking area and raised beds. Double doors lead off

the orangery into a living room with log burner. Leading

from the kitchen is a large utility area/boot room with

space for washing machine and dryer and a large counter

top. A cloakroom/WC and study complete the downstairs


Stairs from the entrance hall lead up to a bright and spacious

landing and seating area which provides access to all of

the bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a walk

in wardrobe, an en-suite bathroom with a clawfoot bath,

separate shower, WC and hand basin. There are two further

large double en-suite bedrooms each with a shower, WC and

hand basin. A further three bedrooms offer large double

accommodation and there is also a family shower room.

The garden which surrounds the house is mainly laid to

lawn. To the rear there is a private, walled decking area

with raised beds and to the side a large south facing patio

area with views over the surrounding countryside. There is

ample parking to the front of the house and to the side for

livery users.


Southmoor Farm benefits from five individual stable yards,

all with light and airy stables. Four of the stable yards are

of block construction and fully enclosed from the weather;

with one external steel framed block. Each yard has a

secure tack room, feed room and area to store haylage and

bedding. A building plan is available on request.

trailer parking, WC for livery users, off-road hacking and

good access to local bridleway networks. All yard areas are

well-lit for security purposes.

Land and Livery

Consisting of approximately 38 acres of good quality

grazing land, the land is currently divided into 7 well

maintained paddocks. It is well drained, allowing year

round turnout. All paddocks are served with automatic

water drinkers, and are secure with a mix of post and rail,

pig netting and electric fencing. Typically running at full

occupancy with waiting list, the well established livery

business turned over £61,134 for the year ended

31st March 2016. Detailed accounts are available on request.

Indoor and Outdoor Arenas

The indoor arena is suitable for a variety of disciplines in

addition to the competition size outdoor arena. The indoor

arena measures 50m x 25m and comprises a Cushion Track

Premier surface which is fully lit, and has a full set of show

jumps and viewing gallery. The outdoor arena measures

60m x 20m, and is constructed of a well drained silica

sand/rubber crumb surface.


The house is well heated throughout with most rooms

having double paneled radiators fired by a woodchip

biomass boiler contained in the adjoining outhouse. The

biomass boiler is registered to a Renewable Heat Incentive

(RHI) Scheme which we understand is due to expire in

approximately two years. We understand that it provides a

payment of approximately £5,200 per annum. Secondary

heating consists of three wood burning stoves throughout

the property. The cooker hob runs from bottled calor gas

and the whole farm is served by mains electricity and water.

Sewerage is to a septic tank located on the property.
