Excellent Development Opportunity In Scenic Location

Galbraith is bringing to the market a current commercial site with significant potential for development as a rural or leisure business, or as a residential property, set amidst peaceful countryside in an attractive area and highly accessible to Glasgow and the Central Belt.

Barnbrock Farm was most recently used as an office as part of Clyde Muirshiel Country Park and offers a substantial traditional farmhouse with four principal rooms, kitchen, storeroom and three bedrooms; two adjoining stone-built barns recently used as workshops and stores, and a separate modern accommodation block with a kitchen, shower room, WCs and storage rooms. 

Separately there is a substantial corrugated metal barn with a mezzanine floor providing ample storage or workshop space, all set amid 4.68 acres of attractive wooded grounds.

Within the grounds lie a campsite with eight timber shielings or glamping pods, requiring refurbishment. The land extends to nearly two hectares, with a useful grazing paddock and a burn running along the southern boundary. There is also an electric vehicle charging station.

Fiona Fulton who is handling the sale of the property said

Barnbrock Farm offers an excellent opportunity for a number of uses – perhaps as an outdoor education centre, premium camp site or an equestrian property in a lovely location. Equally the property could be converted as a wonderful rural home in a prime residential area. Sites such as this with planning permission are rare in this region. It would be relatively straightforward to modernize or extend the existing buildings, or change the land use to residential, subject to the necessary consents. 

The location is ideal with Castle Semple Loch nearby - well-known for a range of recreational activities as well as wildlife and bird-watching. The two closest settlements, Bridge of Weir and Lochwinnoch, are both desirable villages with an excellent primary school at Lochwinnoch and a direct rail route to Glasgow city centre.

Currently the property has planning permission for, and is in use as commercial premises. There is also planning permission for a campsite. Barnbrock Farm is within the Local Development Plan for Renfrewshire. The site has most recently been used as office and storage premises for a regional country park and the camp site has hosted groups of young people on educational visits.

The adjacent Locherwood Community Woodland and nearby Muirshiel Country Park offer access to high-quality outdoor space.  Castle Semple Loch, about five miles distant has a Site of Special Scientific Interest, which is renowned for bird watching. There are also sailing and kayaking opportunities on the loch and walking routes in the Clyde Muirshiel regional park. The Sustrans off-road cycle route from Irvine to Glasgow continues along the lochside. There is also a golf course beside the village.

Barnbrock Farm is for sale through Galbraith for offers over £340,000.
