The Stable forms part of the complex of Paddle Brook Barns conveniently located between Moreton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour. The accommodation provides for extremely versatile modern living with equestrian life in mind. The heart of the home is a wonderful L-shaped kitchen/dining/sitting room with the kitchen being the hub of family life. The kitchen has recently been refurbished and has a four oven Aga, ceramic hob, a number of glazed fronted units, granite worktops and a breakfast bar. There is also a useful utility room which provides additional storage.
The front door leads into a spacious hall with double doors leading into the dining room, at the far end of which is the kitchen. Around the corner is a cosy sitting room with double doors leading out to the terraced lawn and on to the impressive stable block. Also off the hall is the ground floor principal bedroom with en suite bathroom.
The sitting room lies beyond the kitchen with a Clearview wood burning stove and a flight of stairs leading to a galleried room which would also make an ideal office. The second flight of stairs leads out of the hall to two en suite bedrooms. Outside the equestrian facilities are second to none. There are five spacious breeze block stables clad in timber, a tack room and additional hay storage facility. Beyond this is a horse walker and an Olympic-size manège with floodlights, viewing deck and mirrors. The exceptional facilities combine to make this a really rare equestrian facility. In addition there are about 3.4 acres of paddocks divided by post and rail fencing. There is a small field shelter and overflow storage for hay etc.
There is a level lawn connecting the house to the stable block and spectacular views in virtually every direction from both the house and the land.
This is a special opportunity to acquire a superb country property in a wonderful setting with valuable equestrian amenities.
