About this property

  • Milldeans Farm is a charming equestrian property which has recently been upgraded to create a wonderful facility which will suit a variety of buyers. The farm sits in a contiguous block of land and is bounded to the north by the River Leven and by farmland to the south, east and west. Not including Milldeans, there is an abundance of additional hacking routes locally and within close driving distance. Milldeans Farmhouse is an attractive period property conveniently located adjacent to the stable buildings for ease.

    In total Milldeans Farm extends to approximately 26 acres (10 hectares) with attractive views over the surrounding Fife countryside.

    FARMHOUSE - Milldeans Farmhouse is a traditional farmhouse of rendered stone and tile construction. The generous and spacious accommodation is presented over two floors and is well suited to modern living with the rooms benefitting from natural light. The front door opens to a welcoming, timber pannelled hallway and from here the accommodation flows. The sitting room, situated at the centre of the house, has a central fireplace and dual aspect to the north and south. The southern elevation has French doors opening to the patio, ideal for outdoor dining. Adjoining the sitting room is a useful study. The dining kitchen adjacent has both floor and wall mounted units and a range cooker. There are French doors which open to the patio and a practical utility room. In total there are four bedrooms. Two are located on the ground floor which are serviced by a family bathroom and the two on the first floor serviced by a contemporary shower room.

    Externally, to the front of the house, there is a south facing patio and an enclosed parking area for a number of cars / vehicles. Perpendicular to the house is a newly added party room which provides an entertaining space, equipped with a seating area, bar and hot tub.

    EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES AND BUILDINGS - The equestrian facilities at Milldeans are first class, well designed and provide a wealth of amenities for personal use but also offer the possibility to run as a livery. The buildings provide stabling, feed and machinery stores. There is also a traditional range of outbuildings which are now in need of redevelopment.

    The principal stable building, of portal frame construction, lies adjacent to the outdoor school and has 15 Cheval Libertè loose boxes, a hot water shower and solarium. It is heated and has CCTV, linked and monitored from the farmhouse. Adjacent there is a recently completed hay store and muck midden.

    At the eastern end of the yard there is further stabling housing 10 Monarch Equestrian loose boxes and a solarium. There are a number of additional buildings which provide useful storage space. The riding facilities are centred upon a floodlit outdoor school which has a sand and fibre base with dressage training mirrors at the northern end. There is also an electrically driven horse walker for four horses.

    LAND - The land at Milldeans equates to about 26 acres and it is laid down to grass pasture and split into 17 individual post and rail paddocks. The land rises from 110m above sea level close to the River Leven to 126m above sea level at the farm steading. The majority of the paddocks are accessed over two hardcore tracks which run from the yard to the western boundary of Milldeans. Both are floodlit and are suitable for horses and machinery all year round. Some of the larger paddocks are divided by portable electric fences which can be moved if necessary. All paddocks have water troughs which are manually filled to ensure consumption can be monitored. The current owner leases additional land to the south and west of Milldeans by agreement with the neighbouring landowners. There may be potential (subject to negotiation) to continue with these agreements.

    POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT - Lying close to the entrance is a redundant range of traditional farm buildings which, subject to gaining the relevant permissions and consents, could be demolished to provide additional facilities, additional accommodation or converted to residential use.
