Perfect Equestrian Property In Picturesque Perthshire

Galbraith has recently launched a large detached home in picturesque Perthshire, perfect for buyers seeking a beautiful family home with outstanding equestrian facilities.   

Marefield of Craigs is a substantial five-bedroom rural property lying in the village of Madderty in the heart of Perthshire. It enjoys a good level of privacy yet is within reach of Crieff and Auchterarder. 

Generous accommodation is provided with reception space for both entertaining and family living, with two reception rooms and five bedrooms.  The triple aspect dining kitchen has views to the north over the fields and a door leads out to the garden. The sitting room is a warm and cosy room with wooden floors and a wood burning stove and also benefits from a triple aspect with doors leading to the garden patio. Stunning views can also be enjoyed from the four bedrooms situated on the upper level over the rolling countryside.

This rural idyll benefits from a sizable garden and land which includes two south-facing fields extending to some 6.37 acres (2.57 ha) in total. The fields are sown to grass and are suitable for grazing horses or other livestock. 

There are three integrated stables within the outdoor shed, as well as a large day pen along with ample fodder storage and tack room. To the west of the shed is an open riding arena (40m by 20m) with a carpet fibre surface enclosed by a post and rail fence.

Scott Holley, handling the sale for Galbraith in Perth, said; 

There is continued demand for homes with good facilities and stabling in rural Perthshire and we expect a lot of interest in Marefield of Craigs as rarely do properties of this nature come on to the market. 

This property is very much a lifestyle property which should attract families keen to establish roots and enjoy the picturesque countryside whilst having fantastic equestrian facilities on their doorstep. Rural Perthshire is a truly beautiful part of Scotland offering a wealth of recreational activities for example hacking, hill walking, skiing, mountaineering and water sports, with numerous golf courses nearby including at Gleneagles Hotel.

The nearby towns of Crieff and Auchterarder both provide good day-to-day facilities and there are excellent independent schools in the area, including Ardvreck Preparatory School and Morrison’s Academy both in Crieff. Regular trains to London are available at Gleneagles Station and the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow can be reached in about an hour’s journey by car. Dundee is within a 45-minute drive, where there are two universities, shopping centres and airport providing regular links to London Stansted.

Marefield Of Craigs, St. Davids, Madderty, Crieff, Perthshire, is being marketed by the Perth office of Galbraith and is for sale at offers over £600,000.
