About this property

  • Newton of Kiddshill is a traditional style detached Buchan farmhouse which was extended in 1993. In good decorative order, the property features the extensive use of oak veneered doors, skirting boards and some cornice work, bay windows and fireplaces. The secluded setting is delightful surrounded by woodland. The paddocks and outbuildings are ideally placed for equestrian purposes.

    A covered porch with timber door leads to the spacious entrance hallway. French doors open into the delightful sitting room where a brick fireplace houses a wood burning stove and a door to a shelved cupboard. There is ample space for dining and twin aspect windows provide a lovely garden view. Opposite is a bright home office with windows on two sides and sliding doors to shelved storage which also houses a 4G router. The well appointed bathroom has a white suite with double end bath, large separate rainfall shower enclosure, vanity unit with wash hand basin, WC and Bluetooth speakers. An open plan providing a relaxed and informal living space is the kitchen/family room and conservatory. The family room has an open fireplace with a wooden mantel and brick surround. The breakfast bar creates a natural division leading to a fully fitted range of Howdens base and wall units finished with wooden worksurfaces. The surfaces are complemented by coloured glass splashbacks. There is an integrated LPG four burner gas hob with extractor hood and double electric oven; built in microwave; integrated and concealed fridge and a Bosch dishwasher. French doors open from the family room into the conservatory. This space really brings the outdoors in and has garden access. For everyday domestic tasks there is a good sized utility room with fitted units, sink, a Worcester oil fired boiler, plumbing for a washing machine and vents for a dryer. Particularly useful after being outdoors is a boot room/cloakroom with WC and wash basin.

    A staircase with understair storage cupboard leads to the first floor landing with Velux windows which brings good natural light into the house. The former box room is now a large heated linen cupboard. Bedroom three also has Velux windows and a hatch to roof space. The principal bedroom is a double aspect room with bay window, built in wardrobes and has an en suite shower room with white two piece suite with vanity units and WC. Bedroom two and three also have bay windows, dormer window and views to the garden.

    The gardens and grounds are delightful. In front of the conservatory the garden is mainly laid to lawn with cultivated flower beds, shrub borders and mature trees and plants. To the side of the house is a paved area with stone troughs, walled/fenced area: this is a lovely spot for enjoying the sun. An arch leads through to the hedge-enclosed kitchen garden with its prolific strawberry patch and vegetable beds.

    A corrugated potting shed has electricity, water and light and houses the control box for the filtration system. There is a gravelled area behind.

    To the front of the house is an implement shed / workshop with a corrugated roof and a concrete floor – single phase electricity. Opposite is the original steading range with concrete parking in front. Internally there are five stalls suitable as stables and an office with telephone line, internet and CCTV. The brick built general purpose shed/workshop, has water, power and light and a corrugated roof with two sliding doors. A further steading building has a corrugated roof, concrete floor and a double garage with roller door along with 3 phase electricity.

    Well fenced with water troughs and surrounded by mature woodland. Double sided horse shelter.

This is rare opportunity to acquire a small holding. The conservatory offers a wonderful garden view. The versatility to graze horses or operate an at home business is a rare find. I love the flexibility of the steading buildings to be used as is or potential to be developed further.
