This exceptional rural residence has the added benefit of professional equestrian facilities on site, affording excellent privacy and security. The property enjoys an idyllic and very private setting within lovely countryside, which is home to an abundance of wildlife, including birds of prey, deer and hares. The grounds extend to about 52 acres, with magnificent 180-degree views over the Aylesbury Vale towards Stokenchurch and Waddesdon Manor, with the nearest neighbour being half a mile distant. There is good hacking on the doorstep, access to the bridleway network and the property is in close proximity to popular equestrian venues including Cherwell Equestrian Centre, Addington Equestrian and Bury Farm.

In addition to the equestrian facilities there is a stunning, high-specification modern country house complete with all the modern conveniences, plus beautiful gardens and leisure facilities including a tennis court and indoor swimming pool.

The six-bedroom, red brick residence is a highlight in its own right, offering more than 9,000 sq ft of immaculately presented accommodation. Built in circa 2000 it is appointed to a very high standard, creating a warm, comfortable and inviting house, featuring all the modern conveniences, including an externally monitored camera and security system, fibre optic broadband, underfloor heating and air-conditioning. The interiors are presented in a traditional, country manner well suited to the surroundings, with the welcoming farmhouse-style kitchen serving as the heart of the family house and warmed by an AGA, while the two main receptions boast a large wood-burner and an open fire. Most notable is the indoor swimming pool, built by Lincoln Pools in 2008. It is fully ventilated and heated with back up from the oil system if required, to ensure year-round use. The accommodation is well thought out and arranged to offer maximum versatility, with three generous reception rooms on the ground floor and six bedrooms (all en suite) upstairs.


The property has most recently been used as a stud and is fantastically well equipped, making it suitable as a professional equestrian establishment such as youngstock/bloodstock, breaking and training, a professional rider or keen amateur, or equally as an income generator to be run as a full/sales/competition livery yard (depending on terms of use). As well as being close to a number of international competition venues, gallops and water treadmills, the facilities are second to none. This includes fourteen loose-boxes and a foaling box in an airy, L-shaped stable block; wash bay with wall heaters and hot and cold water; a fully rubber-matted vet box with FMBS four-bar solarium; a 60m x 40m floodlit all-weather outdoor arena with waxed sand and rubber fibre surface; a Claydon horse walker; heated office/staff room; a fully fitted tack room; rug room with heated drying rails; heated cloakroom; heated kennels with automatic water drinkers and separate feed room; significant hard standing and lorry parking; log store and equipment shed; and secondary accommodation built by Scotts of Thrapston that could be used for groom staff or working pupils. The grounds amount to about 52 acres including well-drained, well maintained old turf pasture suitable for year-round turnout, which is mostly post and railed and mains electrified, and includes mains water-supplied troughs to all fields and two freestanding double field shelters. All of the grazing is visible from the house, yard and driveway. There is also planning permission granted for a 20m x 40m barn which could be used for forage, an indoor school or further stabling within an American-style system. The yard and stables are also covered by a fully remote access, standalone security system including alarm and CCTV. The property includes landscaped gardens to the front, accessed via a sweeping half-mile drive which leads up through the paddocks to an extensive driveway and parking front and back, where there is an electric car-charger, triple garage, fully-equipped gym and tennis court, built and maintained annually by En Tout Cas. In addition, the grounds include a truffle orchard of hazel saplings, which are intended to produce a truffle crop, an impressive water feature and a seating area for outdoor entertaining, with easily maintained gardens laid to lawns and mature planting. Security is of the utmost importance, including an electric gated entrance with keypad and remote access options, lighting and CCTV, plus a perimeter security system which can also be accessed remotely.
