• 48 acres of woodland with wonderful trails for riding and walking.
The property is accessed via an iron-gated 600 foot long driveway with lighting that leads up to the rear and front of the house via a circular drive and there is parking for numerous vehicles

The current owners have made many improvements to the property since they purchased in 2007, including creating a covered porch area to the entrance to the main house and renovating the kitchen with a new floor, units and installing an aga.

Other upgrades to the outbuildings and plot were the 16 stables, including a foaling box, indoor and outdoor schools, the installation of outdoor lighting, and all the fencing surrounding the property. The owners also enlarged the plot by purchasing a sizeable volume of woodland in the region of 48 acres which extends to the north and east of the property.

Standing completely detached and in a semi-rural location, Meeks Park is less than 3 miles from the village of Dollar – a 10 minute drive - where a good range of amenities and schooling can be found. The road to Kincardine & Clackmannanshire Bridges is less than half a mile away and offers easy access to links across Scotland.

The current owners have operated the property as a stud farm breeding horses and also undertaken liveries and in the past leased part of the property for sheep and cattle grazing so there is the opportunity to easily generate an income of over £20,000 per annum from the property if desired and as a working equestrian property has a farm code mlc 74/291/0034 which means there will be a beneficial LBTT.

The house, originally built in 1975, is accessed via the aforementioned porch area in to a welcoming reception hallway giving access to the main rooms on the ground floor including a spacious lounge with baronial stone fireplace, dining room with another working fireplace, breakfasting kitchen and utility, all offering flexible family living. A short corridor leads to the bathroom, with sauna and sunken shower, boot room and a self-contained annexe with its own front door access gives further living accommodation of lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

Returning to the entrance hallway the staircase rises to the first floor where all 6 bedrooms are found, along with a spectacular 32 foot sunroom with two balconies providing the most beautiful views across surrounding countryside.

The current owners bought the property for £802,000 in 2007 and acquired the woodland for around £100,000 in 2014 and have spent a further £70,000 improving the property which has included the porch extension, the kitchen renovation and aga, gates and lighting to the drive, creation of the stable complex with all 16 stables and toilet/washroom and tack room, indoor and outdoor arenas and all the fencing to the paddocks.

The property is registered with a farm code mlc 74/291/0034
