Reidswell Farm, Fortrie, Turriff, occupies an outstanding rural setting from which to enjoy the multiple outdoor pursuits that Aberdeenshire is favoured for. The property is situated along a quiet country road and with minor roads leading off - proves idyllic for walking, cycling or pony trekking.

This delightful family home provides extensive accommodation, land and buildings which have in the past been used for horses, along with other interests. There are three traditional stone built barns providing stabling and general use, one of the barns is not sub-divided and is ideal for under cover protection of larger equipment or general workshop use. There is also in addition a timber built stable providing 2 stables. Separate dog kenneling and implement storage. The ground surrounding the dwellinghouse to include garden areas, extends in total to just under 4 acres. There is the remains of a menage, however this enclosure could easily be reverted back to general use.

There is a fully established garden set out in lawn, with borders, beds and a mature orchard. Within the garden is a large fruit cage again fully stocked with fruit bushes, there are various timber framed raised beds for vegetable production and of course, excellent scope for poultry to roam freely. The Polytunnel and relatively new “Rhino” greenhouse are both included in the sale.

The dwellinghouse is a traditional one and a half storey Farmhouse, built around the 1900’s, which has had a single storey rear extension added in more recent years.
