If you are seeking an equestrian property that you can develop in to something really special, School Farm, might just be the opportunity you have been looking for. Home to the Brazilian equestrian team during the 2012 Olympics, there is a purpose built, American style barn, fitted out with internal stabling for six horses, a shower and wash area for horses, a secure tack room and storage, as well as an office and toilet facilities for riders and grooms. Within the grounds, there is a purpose built ménage complete with drainage etc, which with a little attention and a new surface, could easily be restored to a usable state. There is also an additional stable block and an agricultural barn, although both require attention and maintenance. There are two separate vehicular access points from the lane outside, and there is plenty of space for the parking and turning of horseboxes, cars or agricultural vehicles.

Whilst School Farm has clearly been geared up for equestrian use, it is very easy to see how this versatile property could be used for almost any purpose. The seven acres of paddocks are flat and in good condition, so could easily be used for growing fruit or crops and / or keeping other types of livestock. Although currently zero rated, the American barn, is categorised for commercial use, so would be ideal for running a business if required.

The living accommodation is comprised of two detached dwellings, a four bedroom 1950's built cottage and a one bedroom converted barn. Both deliver the current owners a good rental income, but would easily make a good home for the right buyer. Alternatively, subject to the right permissions, these properties could potentially be redeveloped to create a more modern home if required.

The market town of St. Neots is under five miles away and offers a commute by train to London in approximately 45 minutes. For families of a school age, Crosshall Schools are also under five miles away and cover all age groups from nursery upwards. In addition, the renowned and highly regarded Kimbolton School is a very easy 8 miles away.
