Property Description

Mayhill Stud Farm is an outstanding equestrian property with comprehensive facilities for those wishing to run a livery/competition business or for an equestrian competition rider or a private enthusiast.

The Farmhouse

Mayhill Farmhouse has its own separate access with private gravel parking and turning area. The house is a traditional double fronted farmhouse with white washed elevations under a tiled roof. The accommodation is as shown on the enclosed floor plan and includes a useful utility room with plumbing for appliance adjoining a light and airy kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired AGA, electric hob and double oven and fitted wall and base units. A generous double aspect sitting room with open fire and views over the garden, attractive dining room and large reception hall complete the accommodation on the ground floor.

On the first floor are four good double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside the large mature and attractive garden lies to three sides of the house with lawned areas, shrubs and trees providing privacy. There is a useful outbuilding adjoining the main yard and greenhouse in the garden.

Immediately adjoining the private gardens of the house is the orchard with its fruiting apple trees.

Equestrian Facilities

The yard adjoins the house but is approached over its own separate gated entrance leading to the large parking area. The extensive buildings provide currently 33 loose boxes, the majority of which are in block built stables with some timber boxes. The yard is well laid out with plenty of space to walk to and from the paddocks and boxes and with associated secure tack rooms and feed stores. In the main yard there is a wash down box and adjacent solarium together with a rest room.

The indoor School measures approximately 42 m x 19 m and is a sand surface in an enclosed steel portal framed barn. The two outdoor arenas have rubber and Equisand surfaces and are both floodlit. They measure approximately 20 m x 60 m and 30m x 70m.

The yard also includes a 5 Horse horse walker, hay barn, 2 W.C’s and a building fitted out for the preparation of hot meals including sinks, oven and hob. A mobile home is situated to the rear of the indoor school.

The Land

Securely situated beyond the yard are the paddocks, which are well laid out, post and railed and the majority have a water supply. The land is predominantly level, free draining and well suited to the grazing of horses.

There is a machinery store away from the main yard complex.

The paddocks extend to approximately 19.5 acres (7.89 ha).

The Location

Situated in the South Downs National Park, the property is surrounded by some of Hampshire’s most beautiful countryside including the renowned Meon Valley. The nearby villages of Swanmore and Droxford are served by a school, village shop, petrol station, parish church and pubs.
