An attractive small amenity estate with a single dwelling situated in a peaceful location near the popular village of Killearn to the north of Glasgow, has come on the market through CKD Galbraith.

Little Moss Estate, which comprises a private dwelling house and some 224 acres of land, is available as a whole or in separate lots and offers an outstanding opportunity to acquire an exceptional property. The house, which requires modernisation, is an ideal chance for prospect buyers keen to put their own touch on the property. Dating back to 1980, Little Moss comprises of a unique original stone built on one level with 4 spacious bedrooms and a timber framed and glazed porch.

Little Moss originally formed part of the larger Moss Estate, until being extended in 1984 prior to Moss House being sold in 1985. Little Moss comprises an original stone built single storey farmhouse, but has been extensively modified and extended to provide additional living and storage accommodation and benefits from the delightful mature and extensive private gardens which provide a tranquil area to enjoy the river setting and scenery beyond.

The land accompanying the property comprises an area of rough grazing and permanent pasture ground and is split into four blocks. The majority of the land lies on a plateau with the Blane Water to the east. The majority of the pasture ground which has been graded 4.2 by the James Hutton Institute with the higher grazing land being graded 4.2 and 5.3.

Duncan Barrie, from Galbraith's farm sale team, and based in the Stirling office says: "Little Moss Estate is an excellent small estate, situated in a stunning and accessible location. It represents the opportunity to acquire both an attractive dwelling with scope to modernize and land with an income stream, all within close proximity of the local amenities of Glasgow and Stirlingshire.

"It must be noted that Little Moss itself is in need of modernisation and refurbishment but provides generous family accommodation, with the potential to be split into two dwellings subject to necessary planning consents."
