A ‘two up, two down’ property has been transformed over the last decade into a stunning four-bed detached farmhouse perfect for keeping horses.
Baswich Farm, on Baswich Lane, Stafford, was originally part of the Shugborough estate, and even has its own fishing lake.
The million pound home boasts four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms, set within 35 acres of land.
As well as 11 stables, the land comes with a manege, tack room, hot was room, solarium, clipping bay and hay barn.
The previous owner also kept livestock and chickens during their 12 years on the farm.
The seller said: “I love animals and being surrounded by nature. It’s such a beautiful place and in Baswich Farm I feel we found somewhere that really does offer the very best of both worlds.
“When we moved here twelve years ago the house was a rather modest two-up two-down sitting in the middle of thirty-five acres of land, but I could see that the property as a whole had an absolute wealth of potential. We were able to keep cows, sheep, goats and chickens, but it wasn’t until I bought the children a pony that the farm began to develop into the fantastic equestrian property it is today.”
The driveway is set in a courtyard with a three-tier water fountain, but that’s not the only water feature here. The fishing lake is full of thousands of fish, and the property has fishing rights for the stretch of river that runs through the property.
Outside, there is a games room, with planning permission for a farm shop.
The seller added: “The business potential on Baswich Farm is enormous, having the option to set up a Riding School, run a Livery Yard, a Farm Shop and a Fishing business. Alternatively, the new owners could opt to simply enjoy all the facilities in their own private setting.”
Here’s what £1,000,000 will get you at Blaswich Farm, Stafford:
