A unique residential and business opportunity set approximately 1.5 miles from the village of Waterside, and 3 miles from Fenwick. Meadowhead Farm occupies a prime elevated position with a private gated access, surrounded by well managed grounds extending to approximately 112 acres which are split into 10 principal enclosures. It was built in 1838 and has recently undergone a detailed refurbishment scheme which included rewiring, re-slating of the roof and considerable internal refurbishment. Built of stone with a slate roof, the farmhouse offers a spacious yet flexible accommodation.
Given the size and quality of the property on offer, the selling agents are advising early viewings to avoid disappointment.
The property comprises of initially six double bedrooms, five bathrooms and three reception rooms, with a key aspect to the property is that part of the farmhouse could be utilised as a self-contained wing boasting three bedrooms, a separate kitchen and a spacious lounge/dining room. As well as the layout already mentioned the property further boasts the opposite wing which is currently used as a substantial games room. One of the key aspects of this property is the fully upgraded and beautifully fitted bespoke kitchen and open plan dining room. This is at the heart of the farmhouse and offers a great range of both wall and floor mounted units with a fabulous butchers block worktop finish, and feature range cooker. There is an additional central island offering storage, as well as a further ceramic hob within the kitchen offering both plinth and under unit lighting, along with a fantastic designer copper 'n' glass wall tiling. This room is complete with ceiling spot lights, windows overlooking both the front and rear gardens and slate flooring, with space for a large dining suite ideal for both formal and informal eating. The property also has a spacious and recently upgraded utility room offering a selection of floor mounted units with space for free standing appliances.
The property is complete with double glazing, oil fuelled heating with two independent boilers within the farmhouse and a fully monitored site security video system. It also operates on a separate private water supply which means that there is no need to pay individual water rates. The house is surrounded by carefully tended, mainly lawned gardens.
There are unrivalled equestrian facilities onsite including a superb indoor riding arena measuring around 100ft x 130ft, 23 stables, a tack room, hay shed, store and an additional floodlit outdoor arena. The surrounding land provides excellent grazing, ranging from good quality permanent pasture to rough grazing.
There is approximately 14.7 hectares of the site land planted for woodland which should mature and be ready for harvesting in the future, which makes a sizeable investment. This plantation is presently insured and maintained with scottish woodlands.
There is an access driveway to the rear of the property with access to a single lock up garage. The property also benefits from a large gravel courtyard to the front of the property giving additional parking and access to the main house. The carefully tended, mainly lawned gardens have a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs and beautiful open aspects. Arran, Ailsa Craig and the Firth of Clyde are visible to the west of the property, as is a wind farm over 1.5 miles away.
