A Scottish property set in 6.5 acres and surrounded by stunning countryside has come on the market and is waiting for a new horsey buyer to call it home.

Hutton Lodge is a charming four bedroom detached cottage set in 6.5 acres with an excellent range of private equestrian facilities in a beautiful rural location with stunning views. It is on the outskirts of Boreland, a friendly community with the surrounding countryside providing many opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Nearby Lockerbie and Moffat provide additional local amenities with Edinburgh and Glasgow within easy commuting distance.

The cottage, which is understood to date back to around 1900 and extended in the 1980’s and 2005, is tucked away on a no through private track creating a sense of privacy and security and we understand that there is direct access to off road hacking and numerous quiet country lanes. It comprises of a kitchen, sitting room, sun room and four bedrooms with a shower room and a family bathroom making it ideal for a larger family or somebody who enjoys having guests to stay.

The stable block comprises of three airy block built stables each 12’2 x 12’2 (about 3.6m x 3.6m) with automatic water drinkers, concrete hard-standing to the front with floodlights. There is also a spacious tack room with insulated walls, floor and ceiling, Belfast style sink, integral heating from large wood stove, water heater, tiled work surface, lighting, power. The concrete yard has an outdoor water tap and purpose built concrete and block muck heap whilst the three bay barn has power and lighting, floodlights at rear towards the paddocks, offering scope for further stabling. Within the barn there is an Insulated Store with a workbench and shelving, large staircase to mezzanine floor above providing additional storage space, and is currently used as feed room and rug storage.

The 20 x 40 Manege has a fibre sand type surface with newly installed LED flood lights allowing the new owners to ride all year round. The Adjoining Grazing Land is split into four paddocks and all fencing has electric top strand. There are stone turnout areas joined with part stone surfaced tracks allowing horses to wander a good distance but avoid winter mud if required.

If you’re a British Eventing competitor, travel may be a little further than those living south of the border, but Warwick Hall, Hopetoun. Eglington, Belsay and Kirkley Hall would all be within a manageable drive. Muirmill Equestrian Centre is the closet venue for British Showjumping whilst British Dressage competitions are held at Morris Equestrian Centre, Greenfields of Avondale and Dumfries Dressage.
