Full description

A unique opportunity to acquire this former Riding School situated in an outstanding rural location with open views to the south to Forres and Clunyhill and yet only 2 miles from the centre of Forres and all the amenities the town has to offer. The traditional stone built farmhouse is believed to date from the mid 1800s, offers spacious family accommodation on two floors and retains many original features. The garden grounds around the house are fully enclosed and are child/pet friendly being laid out mainly to lawn with mature fruit trees and with a gravel driveway with parking space for several cars. The sand school is fully enclosed with wooden railings. The timber stable block comprises 9 loose boxes, a fully fitted tack room and a feed house. In addition there is a range of timber outhouses previously used as stalls for horses and hay sheds but which are open to a multitude of uses. An area of hard standing adjacent to the stable block was previously used as car parking for the riding school. The fully enclosed Paddock extends to approximately 1 acre. The current permitted use of the property is for a riding school.
