An impressive 21st Century Georgian style property, set in approximately 36 acres, with approx. 12,467 sq ft of exceptional living space, outbuildings and premium equestrian facilities.
The extensive equestrian facilities include numerous outbuildings. There are 15 extra-large loose boxes, 9 of which are in the well appointed American style barn, with secure tack rooms and a wash down room, with commercial resin flooring providing stalls and space for a solarium (solarium not included) with a hot/cold wash down shower and fitted units. There is also a feed bay and groom's rest room with washing machine facilities. A double-sided stable block stands alongside the American barn with 6 further boxes and a w.c. Planning permission was granted on 31/03/16 for an additional stable block with tack room.
Further barns provide storage for farm machinery and haylage and all of the buildings, with expanses of concrete and hardstanding, have vehicular access to the paddocks.
At the front of the American barn are double gates onto the lane for farm vehicle/horsebox access, together with an all-weather 40 x 20m turn out area and a 60 x 25m floodlit arena with a sprinkler system and Chapelstone Equestrian sand/fibre combi-ride surface.
The covered Monarch five horse walker is available by separate negotiation.
Grounds & location The house is set back from the lane in a prominent and slightly elevated position down a long gated drive, flanked by front isolation paddocks. The driveway leads to a five-bay garage and extensive areas for parking larger HGV size horseboxes.
Fordham House Farm enjoys a south easterly aspect and to the rear are stone and brick retaining walls which surround a formal garden including an extensive terrace. Amongst the large expanse of lawn is an ornamental wildfowl pond and a chicken house with enclosure.
The grounds extend to approximately 36 acres in all. The acreage provides 15 paddocks which have quality post and rail fencing with mains electric to protect the top rails and water supply. The top meadow has been designed to create a cross country course, with mound and various jumps, which can be purchased by separate negotiation. The facilities are excellent for their permissible intended purpose with good hacking within the immediate area.
