No. 1 Braidwood Steading was formed from a traditional farm building in 1997 and transformed into a modern home, which has been constructed of stone with slate roofs and double glazed windows.

Included in the sale are five other houses, stables and training arena, a well-maintained garden and three paddocks extending to about 5.2 acres in total, which will be music to the ears of any equestrian lover.

On sale with Galbraith for offers over £440,000, the steading would make an ideal family home or a business opportunity for those looking for a holiday let.

Decorated to a high standard, the property is ready to move into and consists of three bedrooms (one of which is en suite), a family bathroom, an open plan living/dining room, a modern country-style kitchen and a floored attic that is currently a playroom.

Features of the home include a wood burning stove in the living room, Jacuzzi bath in the master bedroom en suite, and a plumbed cloackroom that could be turned into a shower room.

The south facing garden is on two levels and the lawns, flower beds and small orchard have been well- maintained, making this a perfect space for summer days.

Within the garden there is also a charming timber chalet, which could be used as an office or for extra storage.

The superb equestrian facilities lie beyond the garden. There is an L shaped timber stables building, which has water and electricity, with three loose boxes, a foaling box, a tack room and feed store. A steel mower shed, a poly tunnel (10m x 6m) and a vegetable area are situated adjacent to the stable yard which has ample parking space for a lorry and/or trailer.

The training arena (50m x 20m) has a rubber surface laid over silica sand. It is enclosed by a post and rail fence and has fitted mirrors at either end. The three paddocks provide excellent summer and winter grazing and are well fenced.
