News & Events Interviews
A unique opportunity to purchase an equestrian estate in a quiet secluded location on the fringe of Chatteris. Carters Bridge Farmhouse is a deceptively spacious double fronted detached, built in 1955 and subsequently sympathetically extended to offer free flowing flexible accommodation ideal for the growing family and for those that wish to run a full operational stable yard or equine business.
Being devoted equestrian enthusiasts, we have since installed comprehensive equine facilities in the property's grounds," say the owners, "including a 10-stable block purpose-designed by us and built by Scotts of Thrapston, a 50m x 33m Equisand and Equirubber arena installed by Charles Britten, as well as extensive post and rail paddocks." The location of the property permits the most idyllic of country lifestyles.
"The house itself is south facing and the terrace and garden room face west," say the owners, "attracting the evening sunshine. There are several wooded copses which horses and riders can access and it is possible to ride out over miles of open countryside with farmers' permission. There is a private fishing lake to the rear of our land and in December and January numerous ame shoots. An arable farm to the north and west of our land, owned by Lord de Ramsey, provides a pleasant place to take an evening stroll as well as simply amazing views."
The location of Carters Bridge Farmhouse provides the best of both worlds-country living and convenience-allowing you to create an equestrian haven and a comfortable family home within reach of all amenities."
