Shelves Farm has been run as a successful livery yard in recent years and comes to the market following the vendors decision to downsize. The sale thereby affords potential purchasers the opportunity to acquire a delightful equestrian holding comprising a detached farmhouse providing a farmhouse style kitchen, reception room, utility and four bedrooms together with an adjoining two bed annexe which offers scope for multigenerational living or indeed incorporation within the house, subject to modernisation. Please refer to the floor plan for room dimensions.

The equestrian appeal of the property is enhanced by the excellent range of facilities which are well positioned within the plot and include an extensive range of block stables providing in total 8 boxes all with rubber flooring and automatic drinkers in addition to 2 pony boxes, a separate lockable tack room, concrete yards and a rubber and sand based arena (20m x 40m). This was installed by Williams & Williams in 2005 and resurfaced 7 years ago and benefits from mirrors whilst being bounded by a post and rail fence. Furthermore, the property benefits from a traditional barn which is attached to the annexe and may offer the scope for alternative uses subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The land is contained within two parcels comprising gently sloping pasture with Lot 1 being shown coloured pink on the accompany plan and extending in total to 3.18 acres. Situated a short distance to the south, is a further parcel of pasture comprising two enclosures and extending in total to 9.46 acres and is shown coloured blue.
