This weekend Epsom Downs Racecourse plays host to the world famous annual Epsom Derby, a renowned horse racing event attended each year by none other than her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Many attendees are happy to travel far and wide to attend their favourite race meeting but imagine living just a stones throw from one of these world famous courses…..
Prestigious horse racing venues such as Epsom, Ascot, Aintree and Cheltenham, all attract an array of visitors keen to have flutter and soak up the race day atmosphere. For those living in close proximity to such race courses there is the obvious advantage of having live horse racing on your doorstep, but there are also many other benefits. For example, residents of this 4 bed detached property in Epsom can enjoy long walks across the wide open spaces of Epsom Downs, whilst the tenants living in this 3 bed luxury apartment have stunning views across Ascot racecourse. What’s more many of these venues hold festivals, fetes and concerts on non-race days, all at close proximity for residents to attend and enjoy.
If you love horses but the idea of living next to a racecourse isn’t quite for you, how about this 4 bed home in Worcester complete with stables, tack room and a menage? Or this lovely gated 3 bed equestrian property in Peterborough complete with stables, tack room, foaling box, and 4 paddocks. Alternatively this detached residence in Hockley is perfect if you enjoy a long countryside hack followed by a swim in your own private pool!
If you simply prefer to admire equestrian beauty from a distance, and you decide to have a flutter this weekend- good luck!
