Rarely does the opportunity arise to purchase such a charming family home with business/equestrian potential as this traditional two public/seven bedroomed dwellinghouse dating back to 1838 but completely renovated approximately 20 years ago. Set within approximately 1.4 acres the subjects boast a substantial large barn/workshop which was formerly an indoor riding school and has two stable blocks providing seven horse boxes. In addition there is an external bothy with integral store and the delightful garden grounds enjoy fantastic far reaching views across the surrounding countryside towards the sea.
