Outstanding Residential Farm In Perthshire For Sale Through CKD Galbraith
An outstanding residential farm situated in a desirable rural setting in Perth & Kinross has come on the market through CKD Galbraith.
Baxterknowe Farm sits to the east of the charming and picturesque village of Forgandenny and is a mere six miles south of Perth. The land extends in total to some 83.87 acres and is predominantly located to the south and east of the farmhouse and steading.
Historically the property has been run as a grassland farm with the majority of the grassland and farm buildings having been let to a local farmer. However, almost half of the
farm is ploughable and would be well suited to cereal and root crop production.
The traditional stone built farmhouse has been tastefully modernised throughout whilst retaining its farmhouse feel. It offers generous family accommodation over two levels with four bedrooms, family bathroom and additional shower room, two public rooms, a large family kitchen, separate utility room and a delightful sun room with oak flooring and south facing views. All of this combined with a billiard room large enough to fit a full-sized snooker table, it’s the perfect house for family living as well as entertaining guests.
The property sits in a delightful elevated position and offers fantastic views of the beautiful Perthshire countryside. The gardens surrounding the house are most attractive with lawn and a mix of borders, trees and shrubs as well as some productive fruit trees including apple and plum. A large patio area exists at the rear of the house and is a delightful spot to enjoy some outdoor dining and barbeques in the summer months.
Baxterknowe includes a range of modern and traditional farm buildings which are all situated in a group to the north and west of the farmhouse. These include a traditional steading, store room, calf shed, log store, coal store, L-shaped barn, workshop, implementing shed, modern cattle shed and a straw shed.
There is also a garage as well as a useful Bothy building offering development potential subject to suitable planning permission.
Duncan Barrie, who is handling the sale for CKD Galbraith said: “Baxterknowe Farm is a fantastic residential farm located in a highly sought after rural setting in beautiful Perthshire. The farmhouse offers excellent family accommodation in walk in condition and together with the quality of land on offer and number of outbuildings, we expect to receive a lot of interest from prospective parties over the coming weeks.”
The land is currently divided into six enclosures all of a reasonable size and are well fenced with the arable land being predominantly classed as grade 2 and 3, with some grassland to the south east of the holding being classed a grade 4. Smaller pockets of amenity woodland and a disused quarry also exist on site.
The area is well provided for by agricultural merchants and suppliers in an area renowned for its productive arable land and the high quality of its livestock.
The farm itself is also very accessible from the M90 and A9 and with the City of Perth only six miles away and the local village of Forgandenny just two miles away, Baxterknowe is well placed for local amenities.
