This farm estate for sale is perfect for horse-lovers - with equestrian facilities and more than 15 acres of land.

There are several outbuildings in the grounds, with a workshop, a tractor shed or stable, a former poultry house, and a general purpose farm building. 

For equestrian enthusiasts, the property also includes a turn out pen and a sand school, which is partly constructed and needs only to be sand finished. 

The land in Lot 1 spans 8.78 acres of permanent pasture, on which the current owners have carried out significant maintenance and drainage work since 2014.

The agent said: “Extending to a total of 17.39 acres (7.04 hectares), Brook Farm comprises an equestrian/residential smallholding in a hidden location, yet within easy access of the A38 dual carriageway expressway, connecting to the M5 motorway and national road network.

“Since the current owners acquired the property in 2014, they have carried out a significant amount of work to the property and this particularly applies to the land.

“The property is being offered for sale as a whole or in three lots, such that buyers are invited to offer on the whole or a combination of the lots as may suit their requirements.”
