The property will be of interest to the Equestrian minded as there are stables and with the land on offer it provides an ideal opportunity for stabling and grazing. It would also lend itself to becoming a great small holding for those wishing to venture into this side of the outdoor pursuits.
The Estate benefits from various outbuildings - the main being the Offices and Stables. Previously used as the main location for a local business, these spaces have a variety of uses and currently include six offices, a larger office area, a kitchen, male and female toilets and a utility room. There are also four stables and two storage rooms.

With approximately 3619 sq.ft. on offer, this space could be adapted to whatever your professional or personal needs are and the opportunities are ample.
