Equestrian land for sale is more than a one trick pony

An opportunity to purchase an equestrian smallholding packed with charm and set in idyllic rural surroundings has arisen near the historic Perthshire village of Dunning.

Gateside of Broomhill is on the market for offers over £480,000.

Perfect for horse lovers, the property is fully equipped and comes with stables, two fenced paddocks, four fields all laid to grass, many of which come with mains water supply, which is ideal for keeping animals.

Alongside the equestrian facilities, the smallholding includes a three-bedroom period farmhouse packed with character. Attached is an independent two-bed cottage which could be repurposed as a holiday cottage for those looking to take advantage of the surrounding unspoilt Perthshire countryside.

Gateside of Broomhill is situated equidistant between Forteviot and Dunning, seven miles south of the city of Perth. The village of Dunning is steeped in history from the earliest days and is built around the Old Parish Church of St Serf, built in the 12th-13th century. The church was the only feature of the village to survive the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion.

The nearby Ochil Hills are popular for walking, riding and mountain biking, and the more dramatic hills and mountains of Perthshire are a short drive to the north. For sporting enthusiasts Perthshire has numerous top-class golf courses including Blairgowrie and Gleneagles, while the Open courses at St Andrews and Carnoustie are both within easy driving distance. There is salmon, trout and sea trout fishing on the River Earn and a superb range of fishing throughout Tayside. Pheasant and grouse shooting are also readily available locally. There is National Hunt racing a short distance away at Scone Palace.

For families, there are excellent primary schools in both villages and there is a secondary school in nearby Auchterarder. Perthshire is known for its outstanding private schools available at Morrison’s Academy and Ardvreck Preparatory School in Crieff, and Craigclowan, Glenalmond are all within easy reach, while Strathallan and Kilgraston are both a stone’s throw away from the property.

The farmhouse itself is well presented and full of character with two log burning stoves situated downstairs. The large kitchen is bright with views over a mature garden and provides ample room for dining.

On the upper floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The bathroom has a white suite, WC, wash basin, free standing half-bath with Velux window above, and a shower with screening and tiling.
