The detached barn lies to the East of the farmhouse overlooking the fields & paddocks for convenience. Only constructed in 2016 the barn extends to around 21m x 14m and approx. 6m high with a concrete floor and a main entrance at the side and front.

This steading building has the added benefit of planning permission which was granted on the 13th December 2008 and crystalised on the 1st December 2016. This would allow development to two impressive semi detached dwelling houses.
Furthermore the detached bothy lying to the East side of the main farmhouse has planning permission for conversion to a business unit which would allow anyone to work from home.

Lastly, there is a existing planning permission for an extension to the main farmhouse, which would create a front porch and additional bathroom.
