Wester Forret Farm represents an excellent mixed arable and livestock unit of approximately 172.21 ha (425.53 acres) in an accessible location just three miles from Cupar.
The farm has a substantial traditional B-Listed farmhouse and a further semi-detached cottage. The property benefits from an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings situated adjacent to the farmhouse which are readily accessible from the public road and the farm’s own network of tracks. The land is a mixture of productive arable land and pasture.
Duncan Barrie, who is handling the sale of Wester Forret said:
Wester Forret offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a genuine mixed holding within a desirable part of North East Fife. The majority of the productive arable land is situated to the west of the holding, largely classified as grade 3.1 and 3.2 with some grade 2 land. It is currently down to a mix of cereals with some fields growing seed potatoes and broccoli. The remainder of the land situated to the east of the public road is a mixture of arable and pasture land, with a large area of hill grazing. The current owners have carried out a programme of ditching and drainage work over the years to ensure that the land can be used to its maximum potential. All the fields are accessible, of a good size and offer easy access to modern machinery. The fields used for pasture are fenced and watered, allowing cattle to be out-wintered late into the season.
The farmhouse is an attractive traditional B-listed property with five spacious bedrooms and two reception rooms, set within a peaceful and private walled garden. There is also a semi-detached two-bedroom farm cottage which has been let on a residential tenancy basis but could be used as a worker’s cottage or as additional family accommodation.
The property is surrounded by picturesque scenery and within an area known for its fertile farmland, capable of producing high yields of an extensive range of crops. This area of Fife is known for beautiful rolling hills and Cupar itself is a desirable and attractive county town only three miles from the property.
