Amenity Estate In Sought After Location Expected To Generate Substantial Interest

An attractive 150-acre private residential and amenity estate near Glasgow has been brought to the market through leading property consultancy Galbraith.

Little Drumquharn, located at Balfron Station and adjacent to the River Endrick, occupies an enviable private position with picturesque outlooks over the surrounding countryside.

The property comprises a traditional three-bedroom farmhouse with an adjoining one-bedroom bothy, and a converted steading, now a modern three-bedroom dwelling house. There is also a range of traditional outbuildings and large modern shed – all of which is accompanied by a productive block of arable and pasture ground.

Duncan Barrie, partner at Galbraith who is handling the sale of Little Drumquharn, said:

Little Drumquharn is a delightful amenity property situated in an enviable rural position that is roughly equidistant between Glasgow and Stirling. 

There are a number of options in terms of the use of the existing residential accommodation which could provide significant additional rental income or further conversion, subject to necessary consents, to form a much larger dwelling. The property is afforded a high degree of privacy by the surrounding farmland and woodland yet still benefits from a good situation in terms of surrounding settlements and local amenities.

The farmland provides an excellent mix of productive pasture and arable ground and is laid out within a large ring-fenced block and has good access from the internal farm road. All of the farmland is down to pasture and has been used for grazing and fodder production. 

With range of residential, agricultural, sporting, and other land management opportunities we expect there to be substantial interest in Little Drumquharn.

Little Drumquharn Farmhouse, situated on the southern elevation of the steading complex, is of traditional stone construction set under a slate roof and provides accommodation over two levels. The accommodation has recently been upgraded with a new heating system, windows and doors installed in December 2019. 

Endrick Bank Farmhouse forms the eastern elevation of the steading, is of traditional stone construction set under a slate roof and provides accommodation over two levels. The property was converted from the traditional steading to a residential dwelling in 2001. The garden area to the front of the property which is mostly laid to lawn benefits from westerly views towards Ben Lomond and The Trossachs. The Bothy, meanwhile, is mid-terrace and forms the south western corner of the U-shaped steading and is currently let on a PRT (private residential tenancy). 

Other buildings at Little Drumquharn comprise: medicine store (4.93m x 2.16m), kennel/workshop (5.7m x 3.66m), store (4.94m x 3.53m), cart shed (5.59m x 4.95m) and there is standalone modern general purpose shed (17.76m x 11.68m). 

The land at Little Drumquharn Farm extends in total to approximately 62 Ha (153.20 acres). The land has been classified as a mix of Grade 4 and Grade 3.2. There are several areas of mature broadleaved woodland which extend in total to approximately 6.40 Ha (15.81 acres) and form various shelter belts and woodland areas located along the banks of the River Endrick. 

The property also benefits from about 1.25 miles of single bank fishing on the River Endrick but it should be noted that there are no catch records for the last 5 or 10 years and Salmon Fishing Rights are specifically excluded from the subjects of sale. There are occasional roe deer on the land and the property has historically benefited from a small low ground shoot, with scope to improve the sporting dimension due to the topography of the ground. 

Little Drumquharn is being marketed by Galbraith at offers over £1,000,000.
