Double Stable Block With Foaling Bay

Dating from 1880, The Oaklands is a handsome double fronted Victorian house and registered smallholding (reg. no. 380/ 0079) to be sold with land approaching 4 acres or thereabouts, to include a stable yard to the rear of the house with three block built stables (each measuring approx 12' x 10') and gravelled large driveway with ample parking for several cars. To the side of the house is a garage with double doors lights and power points.

Behind the stable yard is a converted barn (The Mews) once belonging to The Oaklands, which was converted in 2018 and sold off in 2019 with equestrian land behind. The Mews has a right of access over the driveway belonging to The Oaklands and shares a separate right of access over a track situated 50 yards west of the property, providing separate vehicular access to the paddocks to the rear for both properties.

The Oaklands is an excellent equestrian property, with a large enclosed paddock of approx 3.5 acres directly backs onto a section of the Wyre Forest and forming an idyllic rural setting which is home to a wide variety of wildlife with deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards all being frequent visitors. Mains water to yard and land.

Between the stable yard with 3 block built stables plus feed/tack store and the paddock there are two substantial brick/ block outbuildings, one providing two further stables plus a large foaling bay (that could convert to two stables) plus a large separate cart shed/ store (37'6 x 18'6 ) which may have some potential for conversion to provide an annexe building or office etc, subject to planning.

The house itself provides spacious living accommodation with a living room having cast iron fireplace plus a 19' rear dining room ans separate study (13'10 x 11'6 ) fitted out with a bespoke custom-built range of antique pine bookshelves and glass display cabinets.There is also a useful cellar.

The kitchen is of good proportions, again fitted in antique pine with tiled floor, custom built cabinets, white Belfast sink, wooden work surfaces with granite inset chopping board, range style cooker and space for both dishwasher and fridge.

There is also a separate utility room with space for washing machine and vented tumble dryer, plus door giving direct access into the double garage which has double metal entrance doors.

To the rear of the house, off the kitchen, is a sizeable upvc double glazed conservatory with tiled floor and double doors out to the stable yard.

There is also a ground floor guest cloakroom with low level wc and pedestal hand basin.

To the first floor are three double bedrooms, the largest with a walk-in wardrobe closet as well as fitted antique pine wardrobes to two walls including overhead bridging cupboards. The Second bedroom has fitted wardrobes.

There is a bathroom with wall tiling and suite comprising corner bath, low level wc, pedestal hand basin and full height linen closet, plus a separate fully tiled shower room with linen cupboard, vanity unit with hand basin and cubicle with Triton electric shower unit.
