This prime property package boasts a trio of independent dwellings, exceptional equestrian facilities and picture-perfect views across the surrounding countryside making it a horse lover's heaven.
Introduction - Willow Farm which enjoys a tranquil location in the delightful village of Butterton, is comprised of a spectacular Edwardian farmhouse plus a superb semi-converted three-bedroom barn and a delightful holiday apartment located above a well-equipped stables; both of which have been approved for use as holiday rental accommodation.
This country estate offers great potential for hosting exquisite equine escapes which would generate a healthy income. Viewing is a must to fully appreciate the property's exceptional equestrian facilities which include; nine grazing paddocks and auto drinkers (five of which have field shelters), four winter turn-out areas with water points (two with shelters) plus a 20x40 metre manège.
Let's meander down the pretty private lane leading to Willow Farm and take in the glorious views of the manège, paddocks, stable yard and surrounding countryside from the property's beautiful block paved patio.
Willow Farm - Primary Residence - This immaculately presented residence has been sympathetically expanded, restored and transformed into an exceptionally comfortable family home brimming with character and tailored towards the lifestyle demands of today's equestrian elite.
A plethora of fine finishing touches includes; flagstone floors, solid oak doors adorned with handsome hand forged ironmongery and complimentary matching architraves and skirting boards.
The heart of this home is its open plan, light strewn living area with panoramic views across quintessential countryside. This delightful living space which features a Clearview stove set in an ivory carved stone fireplace enables you to flow seamlessly into the beautiful kitchen.
A granite topped island takes centre stage in the modern, county style kitchen which features a superb range of cabinets and a plethora of granite work surfaces. The practical double Belfast sink and range style cooker add character and there is space for an American style fridge/freezer.
Oak doors lead to the cosy dual aspect sitting room with its log burning stove and attractive brick and stone fireplace.
The delightful study/playroom offers scope for utilisation as a fourth bedroom served by the ground floor's superb shower room.
Muddy clothing is quickly cleaned up in the well kitted out utility room and outdoor gear can be neatly stashed away in the cloakroom off the entrance hallway.
Let's head up the bespoke oak staircase to the delightful oak floored first floor landing and be wowed by three bedrooms boasting fabulous views and the luxurious family bathroom.
The master bedroom features built in wardrobes and a charming fireplace with a cosy log burner. It also benefits from an elegant en-suite bathroom complete with oval bath.
Bedroom two also boasts a stunning fireplace with a log burning stove whilst bedroom three located at the rear is conveniently close to the fabulous fully tiled family bathroom with its mosaic shower area, square ceramic wash basin and wall hung WC.
Willow Farm's professionally landscaped rear gardens were designed with low maintenance in mind and yards and buildings located at the rear of the property can be easily accessed via the block paved driveway.
Horse friendly outbuildings include; the timber stable range, a hay store, a detached brick stable block, rug room, log store lean-to and insulated wooden workshop/ store with power and light.
The Hayloft - This stone built building has planning permission granted to redesign the existing layout to meet the demands of hippophiles who can't bear to be parted from their horses, with living accommodation provided directly above the equestrian facilities.
At present the building is used solely for equestrian use with three stables, tack room/utility, rug/prep/drying room, kitchen and feed room/store with the first floor used as additional storage.
The proposed layout boasts a welcoming private patio area to the rear giving access to an inner hall and shower room.
A staircase leads up to the first floor which has been approved for use as a delightful holiday apartment comprised of an open plan kitchen/living area plus separate bedroom.
Bramble Barn - The perfect holiday home for equestrian escapes. With external refurbishment complete and planning permission granted this stone barn provides a blank canvas for conversion into a comfortable three-bedroom equestrian retreat.
Plans have been approved for a ground floor kitchen/dining room, living area, bedroom and bathroom along with two bedrooms on the first floor.
Four loose boxes, a storeroom, adjoining paddock and parking space for five vehicles have been given the go-ahead and there is ample space for a horsebox.
Bramble Barn's guests would benefit from complete independence to the other dwellings.
Potential income from holiday rentals in Bramble Barn has been estimated at around £900 per week and this barn conversion could potentially be transformed into a separate independent dwelling (subject to planning permission).
