‘Golden Mile’ Farm Comes To The Market In Angus

Galbraith is pleased to be launching to the market Carlungie Farm in Angus, a highly productive farm extending to about 287.30 acres (116.30 hectares) with predominantly Grade 2 arable land, situated in the ‘golden mile’ of prime agricultural land in Angus.

The property offers an attractive traditional farmhouse alongside five cottages which would be well-suited to residential lets. The land has excellent productive capacity and has in recent years grown a rotation of spring barley, winter wheat, beans and potatoes along with temporary grass.

Ian Hope of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:

This quality of farm does not often come to the market and we expect a significant level of interest. The combination of highly productive land in good heart, a desirable principal farmhouse with scope for modernisation, the income potential from the cottages and the situation of the property, in Scotland’s most sought-after area for farming, offers an unbeatable package. 

The purchaser will be able to continue the farming business with relative ease and enjoy all the advantages of a beautiful rural setting, with easy access to the coast and the golf courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews.

Carlungie Farmhouse is a substantial and imposing traditional farmhouse with a wealth of characterful original features. The accommodation includes three reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, four bedrooms and the former maids’ quarters with two bedrooms and various additional rooms, which could be used as an annex for guests, or alternatively an expansion to the farmhouse. The house offers purchasers the opportunity to create an impressive and modern family home, taking advantage of its character and charm.

The farmhouse enjoys a south-facing aspect and sits within its own garden grounds, mainly laid to lawn with mature trees to the front. The farmhouse has its own garage, potting shed and outbuildings.

The portfolio of cottages at Carlungie include a two-bedroom detached bungalow (The Bungalow);  two further detached cottages (Honeysuckle Cottage and The Sheiling) each with two bedrooms; and two traditional stone-built semi-detached cottages (East Cottage and West Cottage)  Some of the cottages would benefit from minor refurbishment to bring them up to modern letting standards.

The agricultural buildings include a modern, brick built shed (30m x 18m); a traditional Dutch barn (16m x 7.28m) of steel frame construction with a tin roof and earth floor; and a dryer shed (8m x 42m) of steel and wooden frame construction with a cement fibre roof and open on all sides.  The traditional steading range, while no longer useful for modern agricultural requirements, would present a great development opportunity if the necessary consents are secured.

The agricultural land at Carlungie is classed by the James Hutton Institute as being predominantly Grade 2 which is capable of supporting a wide range of crops. The previous cropping rotation has benefited the soil, preserving  the soil’s fertility and organic matter levels resulting in an excellent productive capacity.

The land is split into 19 enclosures with good access in the form of either tracks or public roads to all fields. The fields are of a good average size allowing for efficient agricultural practices, whilst not too large to prevent a good rotation.

Carlungie Farm is for sale for offers over £4,900,000. For further information please contact Galbraith.
