EQUESTRIAN HOLDING WITH LAND - Little Halwyn is a period property that has been extensively modernised, extended and boasts six bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is scope to create an annexe within the main dwelling, externally there is a range of outbuildings offering further potential for development (subject to any necessary planning consents).

The land surrounding the property extends to 12.65 acres and includes landscaped gardens, a polytunnel, orchard, lawns and gently sloping grazing in five separate paddocks, each with a water supply.

The house stands in a sheltered south-facing position with a large conservatory to the front overlooking well-stocked, landscaped gardens and ponds with several quiet seating areas. To the rear is a terraced garden with further well-stocked beds and a seating terrace.

The residence is currently occupied as a six-bedroomed house but offers considerable flexibility for division into house/annexe format, each with its own entrance and reception room. There is lapsed planning permission (PA15/06515) for rebuilding of the sunroom at the western end of the property with a sun terrace on the roof to serve the main bedroom above.

The well-lit kitchen features a range of built-in appliances and has two utility rooms, each with outside access. Heating is provided throughout the house by individually programmable electric heaters. The property benefits from a full array of solar panels providing an approximate income of £1,600 per annum, water comes from a borehole on the property and drainage is via a septic tank, hence no water bills. 

The outbuildings comprise a garage and wood store, plus an old dairy building currently used as a workshop and a separate block-built tack room. The stables are in two blocks - one of three and one of eight around a quadrangle with hay barn and covered wash-down area. The stalls measure 3.65 x 3.65m and have water supply. There is a 4.57m x 3.65m foaling stall and a separate feed store.

The riding school measure 50m x 25m and was professionally laid with extensive drainage both under and around the sand/rubber mix surface.  There is a five-bay general purpose barn measuring approximately 18m x 10.97m currently used for storing hay and agricultural machinery. 

The grazing and stable is currently run as DIY livery, providing a modest income.

Ample outside parking is available for horse boxes and trailers.
