Final furlong for auction of equestrian property
Time is running out to bid for an impressive equestrian property in Lancashire, which is offered for sale by SDL Auctions via unconditional online auction on behalf of Rutter Green.
The three-bedroomed bungalow in Nipe Lane, Pimbo, Skelmersdale features a range of equestrian facilities, currently used privately but with the potential for livery, as a riding school, show yard or for other outdoor activities.
The bungalow has an enclosed garden area and separate driveway with parking for several vehicles. The lounge has room for a dining table and overlooks the property’s land and surrounding fields. There is also a kitchen/breakfast room, two bedrooms and family bathroom with three-piece suite. A good-sized third bedroom has been created in the loft space.
In addition, there is a covered outdoor space off the kitchen which is currently used for entertaining.
The equestrian facilities are extensive and have their own separate entrance and car parking area. They include a 40mx30m sand and rubber manège, 20mx20m floodlit sand paddock and approximately 10 acres of grazing land, split into separate paddocks. The industrial stable block has space for up to 16 stables; currently there are 11 stables, a heated drying room with toilet, a heated tack room and kitchen area.
In addition, within the stable block is a mezzanine floor with an office and bedsit with bathroom; with the kitchen facilities below, this creates space which could be used as groom’s quarters.
Andrew Parker, Managing Director & Auctioneer of SDL Auctions, said: “Equestrian properties are always in demand and it is rare to find one of this calibre, with everything you need for a successful riding school or livery. The facilities are not just for horses; in the past the property has been used for a variety of outdoor pursuits, so it offers a range of possibilities and will appeal to a wide range of entrepreneurs.”
The property’s location makes it convenient for the motorway network, as well as the surrounding villages of Upholland, Crawford and Rainford.
It is offered for sale by SDL Auctions on behalf of Rutter Green via unconditional online auction with a minimum opening bid of £550,000.
