AN EXCEPTIONAL EQUESTRIAN RESIDENTIAL SMALLHOLDING SITUATED ON THE EDGE OF CASTLE DOUGLAS
Allanton is situated just outside the town boundaries of Castle Douglas. The property occupies an elevated site with picturesque views over the stunning surrounding countryside. The dwelling has been upgraded and modernised over the years to form a unique residence with the inclusion of grazing paddocks, outdoor Martin Collins arena and stables . The current owners run a successful livery business at present with the self-contained annex also providing a rental income.
ALLANTON MAIN DWELLING
Allanton is of brick-built construction under a slated roof. The property has been sympathetically modernised and offers bright, airy comfortable family accommodation.
The annex at Allanton is self-contained one bedroomed studio, which benefits from open plan living, laminate flooring throughout and adequate storage.
The main dwelling house has garden grounds to the front, which are bounded by dry stone dyke. To the rear and side of the property there is adequate parking available for several vehicles. A timber workshop is also located to the front of the annex and benefits from electricity laid in, with an outside water supply at the far end of the annex.
To the front of the property is a gated hard standing area, which has been utilised in the past for the parking of HGV vehicles.
THE STABLES & ASSOCIATED AMENITIES
At present Allanton is utilised as a livery yard. The property, given its location, lends itself to and has enormous potential to a variety of uses. The livery is run on a DIY basis and there is potential for expansion in this enterprise.
The grazing paddocks are in good heart and are sub-divided into separate enclosures. The enclosures benefit from equestrian friendly fencing and laid in water.
Contained within the grazing paddocks are two field shelters, which both are set on ski’s and are therefore moveable.
The property extends in total to about 10.38 acres (4.2 hectares), to include the area occupied by the dwelling house, annex, equestrian yard, parking and stable blocks.
Given that the property is an active business there is the opportunity for the successful purchaser to acquire, at valuation, the grassland machinery and other moveable assets.
