Impressive equestrian property in South Somerset

An exceptionally well-equipped equestrian property with 43.63 acres in South Somerset is for sale through Symonds & Sampson.  The extensive buildings at Home Farm at Rimpton, a former dairy farm, have been converted over the last 11 years to equestrian use, and the land divided into paddocks and larger fields.

A well-proportioned, light and spacious 3-bedroom bungalow has a farmhouse kitchen with Aga, garage and attractive garden, providing a comfortable home for the owners, whilst their equestrian charges enjoy the facilities within 3 very good steel-framed livestock buildings. These substantial buildings and facilities therein are a particular feature of Home Farm.  A 7-bay building with lean-to has a horse walker and 7 Monarch stables; an 8-bay clear span building houses a fibre surface indoor arena, a lockable store and tack room; a further 3-bay barn provides a fodder store and loose boxes. The outside concrete yard and hard standing provide good access and further storage.

The level and gently sloping permanent pasture is divided into 5 main fields with 6 smaller paddocks around the buildings, with well fenced mature hedgerows.  A useful central hardened surface track provides access to most fields, and the Mill Stream runs along the southern boundary.

The village of Rimpton lies to the north of Sherborne, within easy reach of the A30/A303. The area is well-served with lanes, footpaths and bridleways, including Corton Ridge with its stunning westerly views.

The property (which has an equestrian tie) is on the market with a Guide of £1,100,000, further details from Andrew Tuffin 01258 472244
