Isla Shaw, who is handling the sale on behalf of Galbraith said: “This is a lovely traditional farmhouse offering wonderful family accommodation as well as high-quality stables, riding arena and a manageable area of grazing land.
“Planning permission has been granted to expand the stabling further and this is ideal for those with a number of horses. In addition the property has a triple garage built to a residential standard, which could be converted to form an annexe or guest accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. This property has huge potential and offers a number of advantages for the purchaser.”
Broadhouse Lea Farmhouse, dating back to 1800, provides well-proportioned accommodation, finished to a very high standard. On the ground floor is the entrance hall, well-appointed breakfasting kitchen with range cooker and fitted cabinetry, separate dining room, cosy sitting room with fireplace and beamed ceiling, a useful utility room and WC. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms all with beamed ceilings and a large family bathroom, all well-presented, light and welcoming. On the upstairs landing there is a window seat and space for additional seating.
There is an enclosed garden to the rear with lawn and flower beds. To the south of the property and around the garage is a large gravel area suitable for parking up to 3 cars and a large area to the front of the house garage for additional vehicles.
The triple garage (11.4m x 6.3m) has been built in line with house building regulations and therefore, subject to planning consent, could be converted into additional accommodation. The garage has an upstairs area which is currently used as an office, with a WC and sitting room area.
The stables (10.9m x 4.7m) provide 3 stalls and a tack/feed room. The stables are located in close proximity to the house, with a paved path from the house for ease of access.
The purpose-built riding arena (40m x 25m) has a sand surface, and is fully fenced with post and rail fencing.
To the east of the stables is a large all-weather turn-out area with hard standing. Between the riding arena and the garden, there are two further large hard standing areas with hardcore surfaces, currently used for machinery and general storage.
Planning consent has been granted for the erection of private stables which total 15.2m x 24.4m and a detached hayshed.
The grazing land, classified as Grade 4.1 by the James Hutton Institute, extends to approximately 0.90 Ha (2.22 acres) split into two paddocks, enclosed with post and rail fencing. Both fields are accessed from a hard standing road, wide enough for vehicular access for any necessary maintenance.
The local area offers a wide range of cultural and leisure opportunities, while the surrounding hills, Tinto Hill and Culter Fell are popular with hill walkers and climbers. The region also offers excellent opportunities for mountain biking, shooting and fishing.
