What We Think At The Zoe Napier Group:
The equestrian facilities, location and hacking are all brilliant and the property (built in 2008) has great further potential for largely extending 'up and out', so there's a great opportunity to create a far larger family home, if required. We like the new oak framed barn too – surely that has future potential stp?
What The Owner Says:
I absolutely love it here and had never planned to move. However, an opportunity has arisen to move near family (who are also horsey). The small, gated community and neighbours are all lovely and everything here, from the new build to the barn and manege have all been accomplished with the correct certifications and planning in place for the incoming buyer.
History & Background:
An excellent equestrian property situated in a gated enclave of just four homes in a semi-rural position, largely surrounded by open countryside. The property is a three-bedroom detached bungalow, constructed in 2008 (to replace the former dwelling) and now with the benefit of having planning commenced for a single storey side extension and first floor master suite with dressing room and en-suite.
Opposite (on the same registered title) are the equestrian facilities, set in approximately 7.33 acres of well screened secluded grounds, where an automated entry gate leads to the parking area for horseboxes/trailers and then with access for the substantial Oak Framed modern barn and stable yard. The facilities are secured with motion detectors and CCTv, floodlights for the parking yard and across to the excellent, 50 x 20m professionally constructed manege; all of which has hard stand accesses and an additional secondary parking area. The remaining acreage comprises three paddocks with a canter track on the outer perimeter to three sides.
Setting & Location:
The property is situated in a delightful rural area, located down a no through road where a track leads off and down to four properties behind a wrought iron automated sliding gate for added security.
The cottage lies to the left of the track (third property down), with its own parking and secluded rear garden. Immediately opposite the track (on the same registered title deed) is both a foot bridge over the brook and separately there is an automatic sliding gate for horsebox access. The total acreage extends to 7.5 acres, largely with 7.35 acres forming the excellent, well screened equestrian facilities and the main oak framed barn. The facilities include grazing with an outer grass canter track, a well-equipped stable block, a professionally constructed 50 x 20m manege and extensive areas for parking horseboxes/trailers and alike.
West Hanningfield is a highly sought-after village (with a primary school), close to Stock Village and equally accessible for Chelmsford City, Billericay and Southend for the grammar, high school and surrounding private schools. The immediate areas are largely rural, arable farmland with immediate bridleway access into the village and with access beyond for the Hanningfield Reservoir bridleway and/or via Lower Stock Road (largely country lanes) for Stock and excellent, extended bridleway networks.
Beechwood Equestrian Centre is approximately 4 miles from the property.
Stock Village 3.2 miles* Billeric
The initial automatic entrance gate was installed with agreement of the four residents. The track, maintenance, and cost of electricity is shared four ways.
The private drainage system is shared with one neighbouring property of which a 40% contribution is made to emptying and servicing annually.
The track is an un-adopted no through lane. Blind Lane is an adopted lane (by the local authority).
