Opportunity To Purchase A Scenic Amenity Farm

An attractive amenity farm within commuting distance of Glasgow has come onto the open market with CKD Galbraith.

Chapel Farm near Houston, Renfrewshire, is situated in a private and scenic position yet is only 17 miles from Glasgow and within close proximity of a wide range of useful amenities and activities.

The farm itself extends in total to approximately 14.60 Ha (36.08 Acres) and provides a compact amenity unit which would suit a variety of potential uses. The sale also comprises the traditional four bedroom farmhouse, a range of steading buildings including a former bothy, modern portal sheds and productive block of fodder and grazing ground.

Chapel Farmhouse is an attractive farmhouse with well-proportioned accommodation over two floors. There is an adjoining traditional stone bothy which requires renovation but with the necessary planning permission holds the potential to be developed into additional living quarters.

The farm is of a south easterly aspect rising from 17m above sea level at its lowest point, towards the east of the farm steading, to 38m above sea level at its highest point, on the west of the holding. The land has been classified by the James Hutton Institute as mainly Grade 3.1. The land is currently down to pasture having been utilized for grazing and fodder production previously.

Duncan Barrie, Partner at CKD Galbraith and handling the sale said:

Chapel Farm is an attractive amenity unit offering the ability to convert to a range of amenity, equestrian and other business uses. The local area is well served by a number of local equestrian contractors and suppliers while the prestigious Ingliston Equestrian and Country Club, only three miles from Chapel Farm, host regular competitions and training events.

The farm has historically been run as part of larger a dairy unit but given its location to existing settlements and public roads it provides an excellent opportunity to convert the existing buildings and expand the residential accommodation.

The village of Houston lies to the south of the farm and offers established nursery, primary and secondary schooling. The village is convenient to the A737 dual carriageway providing links with Paisley, Glasgow Airport which is around seven miles from the farm, and the M8 providing swift access to the city of Glasgow.
