- FIRST FLOOR
grounds & GARDENS -
The rear barn is 12m x 8m and will take an 8 metre
horse box sideways, we have had more than 25 tons of
hay stored in here on two levels. Half of the ground
level we currently use as a workshop tool storage
plus grass cutting tractors bikes etc.
There is a slate-roofed building with two floors at
the rear of the property of 13.2m x 5.2m. We used
this building as storage for our clothing business,
so the floors were re-laid and sealed. It has
electricity and has an upper floor and would lend
itself to being converted into a small home for
parents or a guest suite.
Dimensions 13.2 x 6.9m, this was
built to house our two horse boxes, one 12 m in
length and the other 8m. They could both fit easily
into this barn, which has electricity, lighting, sky
lights plus large sliding door and a concrete floor.
It is used for general storage now. It could be
changed into a modern 4-5 horse stable block
holds a 1500 litre cider barrel which is currently
in use. We have produced cider and Pommeau for our
own consumption.There are wine racks for more than
400 wine bottles with room to expand to triple that
Stable barn and tack rooms ▼
Dimensions 25m x 5m. Traditional slate roof, 3
stables, tack room and further workshop storage
room. Upstairs the space runs the whole length of
the building. We had an architect draw up plans for
two luxury gîtes and one further one bedroom gîte.
The whole building was lime rendered 2010.
Wood barn and machinery
Dimensions 25m x 12m. This was originally built
for intensive beef cattle rearing. It could be
converted into a large stable area, we use it just
for the farm machinery and storing wood.
This picture was taken nearly
15 years ago and does not represent the overview of
what the house and grounds look like today as the
oak trees lining the drive are now quite large. The
manége is 60m x 30m is drained for horse training
and is floodlit. It has been grassed over since we
stopped riding competitively, but it would be very
easy to return it to a sand manege.
There are three stables in the
courtyard of the property and the possibility of
creating eight or more in the buildings at the back
of the property. There are three large outbuildings
for storing hay and straw.
The property has 9 hectares
(22.23 acres) and we currently rent a further 3
hectares. The greater part is for the production of
maize for animal feed and a three field rotation for
horses, although the whole parcel could be put back
to grass, so many possibilities.
