NOT only is there lovely living space at this rural home but it comes with great gardens, leisure amenities, a paddock and equine facilities.
Blackbridge Brook House, off the main road through Havenstreet, is an immaculately kept property, with assets that will whet the appetite of those wanting countryside living at its best.
While the detached four-bedroom house exudes quality, surrounding it are secluded gardens with beds full of shrubs and splashes of colour and some super surprises.
Ideal for an evening with friends and family is a professionally installed petanque terrain, while perfect for al-fresco meals and barbecues is a rustic-style, open-sided summer dining barn, with a ten-foot oak table and power.
A hot tub is great for relaxing while taking in rural views and children have their own detached playroom.
Beyond the back garden, an enclosed paddock of around an acre sweeps gently down to a large sand school and substantial stable block, which has a concrete forecourt and access from the road. It includes two stables, a tack room, plus hay and straw stores.
Behind is a copse with seating areas under the trees, many of them oak, and a shady path can be followed alongside Blackbridge Brook.
Views over the paddock to the copse, woodland beyond and distant downland create an idyllic rear outlook from the house, garden, dining barn and a raised rear deck with its glazed balustrade.
The property is screened from the road by trees. At the front is a parking area, double garage with a staircase to a loft storage area and pretty gardens.
Tucked away in a corner is a greenhouse and planting tunnels.
Off-white walls, neutral decor, heavy oak doors and designer radiators add style to the house. Mellow oak flooring runs throughout the ground floor, except for the kitchen and utility room, which have Elizabeth Ann oak units.
The entrance hall has staged stairs to the first floor, a WC leading off and doors to rooms including a front-facing office with built-in deck and shelving.
From the lounge, with its brick fireplace housing a woodburner, are double doors to an airy sun room. This has a rear outlook and deck access.
The eat-in, 22ft-long farmhouse kitchen, with rear views and deck access, is enhanced by rustic-style floor tiles complementing the wide range of units and continuing into the utility room.
As well as a large range cooker, there is an integrated dishwasher and the utility room has plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. There is also access to a side porch area.
Travertine floor and half-height wall tiles feature in the family bathroom, which has a white suite.
There is also a luxurious en-suite bathroom to bedroom one. This room and good-sized bedroom two have built-in wardrobes and rear views to downland.
Also with a rear outlook is bedroom three. Bedroom four is front-facing.
