The home of the late Nerys Dutfield, one of the leading trainers of two year olds in the UK is for sale with our Axminster office.
An opportunity to own a gloriously situated farm surrounded by 88.86 acres (35.96 ha) of pastureland, with fine views over the Axe and Coly Valleys. Crabhayne Farm is the family home of the Dutfield family of Axminster Carpet fame. The late Nerys Dutfield, one of the leading trainers of two year olds in the UK, ran the successful and well-regarded Crabhayne Racing Stables from the property.
This compact country estate, centred around an attractive 9 bedroom farmhouse, listed Grade II, is accessed by a long tree lined drive. The house has been sympathetically extended but retains many original features. At the heart of the home is the open plan farmhouse kitchen with Aga, which opens into a 30 foot family room with large inglenook fireplace. The recently renovated three bedroom Crabhayne Cottage is positioned a good distance from the main farmhouse. There are a range of flexible outbuildings, some with potential to convert (STPP), suitable for a variety of uses. The excellent equine facilities include 40 stables, 5.5 furlong gallop, 2.5 furlong cantering track, horse walker and lunging ring. The surrounding land has considerable sporting, amenity and conservation appeal with a lake, wildlife ponds and an area of woodland filled with bluebells in season. Originally a dairy farm, this versatile property could appeal to a range of farming, equine or lifestyle interests.
