DESCRIPTION
Baravullin Beag is a superb small holding/equestrian property that provides a fantastic opportunity to create a unique and much sought after rural home with highly desirable facilities. The property has been well maintained with the house and steading located to the south east of the property with the land to the west.

Baravullin Beag Cottage and Garden
A delightful 4 bedroom cottage, in walk-in condition throughout. The original cottage dates back to the 1800s and although extended, has retained several original features including wooden flooring in some rooms and panelling to some walls and ceilings. As well as a good size kitchen, the cottage benefits from a separate dining area and lovely double aspect sitting room with wood burning stove. Also on the ground floor is a utility room, large conservatory with under floor heating and porch with space for coats and boots. The property also benefits from a number of recent improvements including the installation of an air source heat pump.

Equestrian Facilities and Outbuildings
Baravullin Beag has an impressive range of outbuildings that extend from close to the cottage and down towards the arenas with a sizeable yard adjacent to the buildings. Although the property is well equipped for equestrian use these facilities could easily be utilised for various purposes. The holding currently runs a small flock of 20 sheep and the different buildings are extremely useful for livestock.

The Land
Baravullin Beag extends to approximately 40 acres (16.1 ha) with a hard core track leading directly from the farmhouse and outbuildings to fields 5, 6 and 7. The land is principally classified as Grade 6 by the James Hutton Institute and is predominantly flat lying at about 10m above sea level at its highest point. The fields are a good practical size and enclosed by a mixture of wooden fencing, stob and wire and hedging.
