Soulcombe on The Market


Soulcombe's lush paddocks | Windsor Clive International

Soulcombe, a 388-acre farm where Chris Budgett's Kirtlington Stud is based, has arrived on the market and will be offered through Windsor Clive International. Budgett has built up Kirtlington since the mid 1980s and has decided to offer Soulcombe for sale. On the acreage are Soulcombe House-which features seven bedrooms and two wings, as well as three different stable yard complexes and five cottages. The gently rolling limestone land has produced quality bloodstock including Harbinger (GB) (Dansili {GB}), champion and G1 Derby hero Sir Percy (GB) (Mark of Esteem {Ire}) and G1 Sydney Cup winner Selino (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}). The stud is situated just over an hour from London and less than two hours from Newmarket. In addition, it is only four miles from the A34/M40. A total of 13 Classic winners have been bred or raised within a few miles of the property.

“The flexibility of Soulcombe is remarkable-breeding, competing or polo-it covers the whole spectrum” said Windsor Clive International's George Windsor Clive.

Added Kirtlington Stud's Chris Budgett, “The time has come to move on-we will continue trading as Kirtlington Stud with our own horses. It would be nice to find a buyer to continue with the success that we have had, but I accept that the property has much to offer for so many different uses.”
