Located in a small hamlet of farm cottages and newly constructed homes, South Balnoon farmhouse dates from the early 1800s and is a substantial, detached, stone-built property with a slate roof.
The eight acres comprise enclosed garden grounds, three fenced paddocks, stabling for 11 horses including a tack room, feed room and a wash bay.
The adjacent equestrian arena is bounded by fencing and hedging.
Separately available are additional land, which has Planning Consent for four holiday pods, and a large modern outbuilding.
The farmhouse itself is very well presented and has a good balance of reception rooms and bedrooms laid out over two storeys.
The kitchen is the heart of any house and at South Balnoon there is ample room for a large dining table and chairs.
The two public rooms have open fires and both rooms are cosy and bright.
There is a conveniently located home office on the ground floor.
In addition to four comfortable double bedrooms there is a family bathroom and a large wet room with a shower.
Surrounded by farmland and rolling hills, South Balnoon is located on the edge of the village of Forgue and close to the historic Glen Dronach Distillery founded in 1826 and still using the soft Highland waters of the Balnoon hills.
Primary schooling is available at Forgue with further primary and secondary schooling at Huntly.
The village of Forgue is situated around 10 miles from Huntly, an historic town which prospered during the 18th century through the expanding linen industry.
Today, there is a swimming pool, sports grounds, golf course, play park and river walks as well as shopping facilities, including two supermarkets, a Health Centre and a hospital.
