Rires Farm Cottage is a single storey traditional detached farm cottage built of stone under a pan tile roof, typical of the area. An extensive renovation of the property was completed recently and it remains in very good order. The rooms are well laid out off a single corridor. The property is decorated in neutral colours and all rooms have fixed floor coverings; some blinds are also fitted as are a built-in refrigerator and cooker. The property has an Energy Efficiency Rating of D, helped by the double glazing throughout and extensive insulation. The Energy Performance certificate can be provided on request. Heating is by way of an oil fired central heating system in addition to a wood burning stove in the reception room. A modern smoke alarm system is installed.


Rires Farm Cottage is located on the Balcarres Estate and benefits from a secluded setting. The views from the cottage are fabulous. On a clear day it is possible to see over the Firth of Forth to East Lothian, the Bass Rock and beyond. The house is surrounded by open farmland and sits within a group of four cottages. All the cottages are let to residential tenants and all have distinct parking and garden areas. Access is by way of a surfaced farm road that is a dead end and therefore there is minimal traffic.
