Description
North Kilduff Farm occupies a beautiful setting on the southern side of the Ochil Hills and with superb views of the Lomond and Cleish Hills. Set in rolling countryside, North Kilduff Farm lies at a height of approximately 160 metres above sea level and its location means the property benefits from the relatively dry east coast climate, which can allow horses and livestock to be grazed outside throughout the year.

The land at North Kilduff Farm is capable of growing good grass, fodder and arable crops. The farm's well designed and compact layout lends itself to be used as either an equestrian unit or as an agricultural smallholding with ample livestock handling facilities.

Farmhouse
North Kilduff Farmhouse is a traditional stone and slate Georgian house with a modern extension at the rear. The farmhouse has a large garden with mature fruit trees and occupies an elevated position with beautiful views to the south. North Kilduff Farmhouse is connected to the mains electricity and water supplies, with drainage to a septic tank and benefits from being double glazed throughout and centrally heated via a combination of an oil-fired combi-boiler and electric storage heaters.

On the ground floor of the farmhouse there are four principal rooms including a large farmhouse kitchen, a utility room/second kitchen, a snug with a multi fuel stove, a sitting room and an office which has the potential to be converted to a fifth bedroom.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

The buildings provide the owners of North Kilduff Farm with both ample horse accommodation and excellent facilities for a wide variety of equestrian activities including jumping, dressage and polo.
