The reception rooms are located off the large entrance hall which boasts a quarry tiled floor and feature fireplace housing a woodburning stove. The sitting room/study currently overlooks the front garden and neighbouring countryside, whilst the drawing room has dual aspect windows flooding the room with natural light.

On the first floor, the master bedroom suite includes a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and storage, together with an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Catherton Farmhouse is an attractive family home which has been tastefully and neutrally decorated throughout.

The house is approached off a quiet country road through an entrance off a sweeping driveway enclosed by a stone wall and bordered with a variety of flowering and herbaceous beds. To the rear of the property is an enclosed garden with lawn, paved patio and separate paved terrace in front of the pool house. There is also a tranquil raised deck area under a climber covered pergola; the seating area is perfectly placed to enjoy far reaching countryside views.

There are seven stables (with an access at the rear to the manège) and a feed room together with three pony stables, located in a separate single storey stone barn, with a potting shed/store.
A large stone barn with full height doors provides a covered tie-up and wash down area for horses, a secure tack room and potential for a flat/grooms accommodation at first floor level.

There is a separate log cabin office alongside the manège.
The land lies to the north of the house and benefits from its own vehicular access. It amounts to about 8.3 acres comprising wellfenced paddocks and a well-stocked coarse fishing lake. The vendors have erected a range of equestrian cross-country jumps around the paddocks.
