Positioned in a superb rural location, Middlecot Stables is a very
short drive from the A303 providing great links to the West and to London. Every day amenities can be found in the nearby villages of Cholderton, Grateley and Quarley, with Andover providing a more extensive selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. There is an excellent range of state and private schools in the area including The Stonehenge School in Amesbury, The Wellington College Academy Trust in Tidworth, Norman Court in West Tytherley, Farleigh School in Red Rice, Rookwood in Andover, Godolphin in Salisbury and St Swithuns in Winchester.
Middlecot Stables is superbly located for recreational activities to

including The Hampshire Golf Club in Andover, Tidworth Garrison
and High Post Golf Club. Situated close to the A303 there is
great access to local equestrian competition centres including
Sparsholt College, Larkhill, Tweseldown Racecourse and Salisbury Racecourse.
There is a two bedroom former mobile home which was
subsequently converted in to a dwelling. Comprising a living
room with a stone fireplace, kitchen, conservatory, bathroom and two bedrooms this building is in need of complete modernisation, and has great development potential.
Middlecot Stables benefits six wooden Ascot stables with hay
and straw storage. A separate block of four traditional, internal
stables on a stone floor, with a tack room and storage area.
Opposite this is a modern five bay steel framed barn. The
wooden stables are served with electricity and there is mains
water to the property.
The pasture land is situated to the north of the property and is
split in to paddocks with post and electric fencing and post and
stock wire fencing. Some of the paddocks are served with water
supplied by Cholderton Water Company.
There is a Right of Access to the north of the land and this is
shown on the plan as a hatched brown line.
Temporary planning permission was granted for the former
mobile home, however TVBC have confirmed in writing that
because operational development works have historically been
carried out to the property then this building is now considered to be a building in planning terms. However, because the building
had been unoccupied for some time TVBC have stated that
planning permission would be required to use the building for any
purpose going forward. The current owners have been advised
that because the property has been occupied (not continuously)
since 2000 then a certificate of lawful use could be submitted in
order to prevent any enforcement action against using the
property as a permanent dwelling.
The current owners have also received a favourable response
from discussions with TVBC with regards to converting the
traditional stable block into a 2/3 bedroom dwelling however
there is no planning permission in place on the building.
Please speak to the vendors agents for further details but we ask interest parties to seek their own planning advice.
