Stanley Lodge is an extremely well located equestrian property that has a most delightful rural outlook. The period farmhouse and adjoining stone barns have been the subject of an extensive renovation programme over the past few years. The stone barns themselves are utilised for stables and storage, but do lend themselves to other uses, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. The land lies around and adjacent to the property, and is laid out in two convenient sized paddocks that are well suited to equestrian or other livestock use. There is direct access to a Bridleway with good outriding.
The farmhouse itself is believed to date from the 1700’s, with later additions, particularly to the front, believed to be from the Victorian era. The property has been in the vendors ownership for 14 years and therefore has not been on the market for some time.
