House hunters with ambitions to run a riding school and livery yard will find everything they are looking for at Broughton Green, near Droitwich, in Worcestershire.
Wards Farm is all set up and currently licensed and trading as both those things .
It is no surprise then that its equestrian facilities are excellent with a number of stables and a tack room adjoining the garden room. There is a further courtyard of 17 stables, an indoor ménage and additional hay barn with one end used for storing hay.
The farm sits in the centre of 29 acres. The land drops gently away from the house and is sub divided into ten different paddocks all well fenced with water troughs throughout. A level grass arena is used for show jumping.
Facilities for humans are also very comfortable.
A tree-lined drive leads up to the front of the charming farmhouse which has an attractive courtyard, garages and stables to one side .
The reception hall has a galleried landing.
Most of the reception rooms have beamed ceilings, giving the house real character.
Windows to three sides means the drawing room is filled with light, though the fireplace and wood burning stove make it cosy during the winter.
Beams in the country kitchen are the perfect place for pinning up rosettes won for riding.
It is fitted with units to the walls which surround a central island and breakfast bar, all topped by granite worksurfaces. The heart of the kitchen is the oil-fired Aga.
Double doors lead into a lovely dining room, beyond which is a conservatory and study.
A light glazed corridor with thatched roof which doubles up as a boot room leads on to a spacious garden room. Stairs from the main hall head up to the galleried landing off which is the master bedroom with en suite shower room.
At the other end of the landing there are two bedrooms with a bathroom between.
Above the garden room is a separate one-bedroom flat with kitchenette, shower room and sitting room approached by an external stairway.
Wards Farm is in a suitably rural location with many services nearby. Towns within a few miles include Droitwich and Bromsgrove. There is also easy access to the M5 or M40.
