This four bedroom family home provides ample living space and exceptional views to the rear with the original part of the house believed to date back to 1924 . With plans approved to extend the rear of the house, The Paddocks is perfect for the equestrian family with a block of 4 stables, tack room, hay barn and two large storage rooms, 40m x 20m floodlight menage and the most wonderful post and rail paddocks with ample trees and outstanding views.
The location of The Paddocks is rather enchanting situated on a no-through private road, with woodlands and parkland abutting the property and yet access to the A1 being within a short drive, perfect for accessing the shows but far enough to negate road noise,
Having undergone recent refurbishment the accommodation is arranged over two floors, to the ground floor the living accommodation includes a generous living room, a superb kitchen/dining room which has been completely refurbished and this in turn opens up to the day room with double doors onto the rear garden. Two of the double bedrooms are on the ground floor along with their own bathroom. The master and second bedrooms are both double aspect with beautiful views across the property on the first floor and share a newly refurbished bathroom.
Externally there is a pretty formal garden that leads down from the large decked area across the rear of the house.
The extensive drive leads to a parking area with ample space to turn a lorry. There is also a very sizeable workshop/garage which would lend itself to conversion to annexe accommodation (subject to planning).
