HOUSE hunters who are looking to ensure their horses are as well catered for as they are themselves, will find plenty to appeal at The Arches, a spacious barn conversion with superb accommodation, excellent equestrian facilities and even a view of Richmond's Castle Keep peeping over the treetops.

The Arches' well laid-out accommodation, which wraps around a private central courtyard perfect for outdoor entertaining, comprises an entrance hall, dual aspect living room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a large brick fireplace with a multi-fuel stove set on a stone hearth, laundry/boot room, study with bespoke fitted shelving, family bathroom, three double bedrooms – one with an en-suite shower room, and a superb living/dining kitchen which is the hub of this very high-quality home.

A large room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, and two barn-style arched windows, this room is laid out in three areas: a living area, dining area and kitchen.

The kitchen area is fitted with contemporary bespoke units with granite work surfaces and includes a range of integrated appliances plus an island unit with a wine fridge and a breakfast bar.

Upstairs is the master bedroom suite with a vaulted and beamed ceiling and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with a double-ended free-standing bath and a recessed TV for in-bath viewing.

The property has been finished to the highest standard and includes air source heat pump underfloor heating.

The Arches grounds are made up of a number of garden areas – including a large garden immediately adjoining the house with lawns, flower beds shrubs and fruit trees – plus three well-fenced paddocks, two of which slope down to adjoining woodland. All-in-all the grounds extend to around 2.5 acres in total.

The property also includes a number of outbuildings: a stone-built double garage with a room above which is currently used as a store, but

lends itself to other uses including an office, or annexe, an oak-framed double garage and an American barn which is currently divided into two loose boxes, a tack room  and storage.

The Arches – which is just a mile from Richmond Castle – is on the market at offers in the region of £695,000.
