Property description

General description


Ashgrove Equestrian Centre was first constructed in the early 2000’s with the intention of building race horse training facilities in the north of the UK.

In the recent past it has successfully operated as a race horse yard with excellent facilities including an equine pool, 38 loose boxes, family home, storage sheds, horse walker and 61/2 furlong all weather gallops. Some of the grazing has not been fenced to allow grass gallops from the lowest point on the Centre. The property extends to 49 acres in all.

Planning permission did exist for further development although this may have lapsed.

In all, it provides a great starting point for a new owner to create a fine establishment with all the major capital items already catered for.


Main house


A modern detached family home in an elevated position with veranda offering panoramic views of the centre.

The house extends over two floors with modern electric heating through wet radiators and efficient double glazing.

The ground floor comprises:

Sitting room, sun room, kitchen/dining area, double bedroom, single bedroom, shower room and utility room.

Upstairs at first floor level:

2 further double bedrooms, family bathroom and large decked veranda.
Outside are paved terraces and gardens surrounded by a wall.

Adjacent to the house is detached double garage with further rooms at ground and first floor level.

On the south lean-to extension are 5 loose boxes (3.5m x 3.5m) and a feed room. The west extension has a conservatory, kitchen, toilets and plant room.


Stable block


East of the complex is a u-shaped stable block built by Saltire Stables with 20 loose boxes (3.5m x 3.4m) and four feed stores. Beyond the main stables are two isolation boxes and a lunging ring.

Gallops


From the lowest point on the centre an all weather gallop of 61/2 furlongs (1300m) extends. Along the north boundary. The gallops are wider that usual with racing rails and a gentle incline from start to finish.


Storage sheds


Two 3 bay telegraph pole barns provide usual storage for feed and general storage.


Land


To the west of main building is a fenced area with drainage installed. The area is built as a manege but requires a proprietary surface to complete the arena.

Grazing paddocks range from holding areas to extensive grassland for use as grass gallops or further grazing.


Future proposals


There has been previous planning permission granted for additional 3 houses, stabling, indoor arena and clubhouse. Any purchaser will require to satisfy themselves with regard to any future proposals with Mid Lothian Council. See website .
