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 are already set up and have until very recently been used for grazing and stabling horses. There are three traditional stone built barns, which in their current format provide up to five large loose boxes, feed store, tack and carriage rooms. One of the barns is not sub-divided and is ideal for under cover protection of 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 a floodlit menage with a sand and equestrian rubber ground cover along with a turn out area and paddock all leading from one to the other. 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. The accommodation would lend itself well to multi-generation living or those with a large family who crave space and an element of independence.
The accommodation comprises the following:- Spacious entrance hallway, with door leading off to the rear extension. There is a large family sitting room, which also provides space for the placing of a dining table, office, dining kitchen and utility room. Within the sitting room a spiral staircase leads up to the upstairs where there are two double bedrooms and bathroom. Downstairs, the rear extension comprises master bedroom with en-suite shower room, bedroom 4 and separate bathroom. There is also a small sitting room, which could also be used as bedroom 5 if required.
There are a number of solar panels generating quarterly dividend payments and during peak harvest times also contributes to the electricity used. The property is fully double glazed the majority of the windows were replaced around 2016 (apart from 3 in the upstairs rooms). The property also has a dual fuel central heating system which can be fired by the oil boiler, or alternatively there is a solid fuel range in the kitchen that can also be used to heat up to twelve radiators.
