A rare and unique opportunity to acquire a 95 acre small farm in the stunning Galloway area of South West Scotland. Summerhill farm offers exceptional panoramic views coupled with complete privacy and tranquillity. The farm and farmhouse are SW facing with lovely undulating topography giving ample scope for equestrian interests, eco-tourism, farm livestock and new woodland creation.
Summerhill Farmhouse is a traditional stone and slate 1½ storey 3 bedroom property with far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. The house would benefit from a programme of modernisation and possible extension. The layout is shown in the enclosed floorplan but, in summary, the accommodation comprises:
Utility Room/ Porch, Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room, Bedroom 3, Bathroom
2 Double Bedrooms
The farmhouse is served by electric heating with an open fire in the dining room, wood burning stove in the sitting room and oil-fired Rayburn in the kitchen which provides ample hot water for domestic use.
The gardens have been much improved by the current owners with the addition of a raised seating area with far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.
There are a range of traditional buildings at Summerhill Farm and these would lend themselves to stock rearing, smallholding or equestrian use. A floor plan of the traditional steading is enclosed within these particulars and, in addition, there are:
• General Purpose Shed (19.6m x 18m)
• Dutch Barn and Lean-To (15m x 5.5m plus 12m x 5m lean-to)
• Stable/Field Shelter (5m x 5m)
The traditional steadings are no longer suitable for modern agricultural practices, however these buildings do provide useful workshop space and agricultural storage in their current state and may also provide development opportunities in the future subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
Summerhill extends to approximately 95 acres (38 Ha), is a ring-fenced unit lying to the east of the A713 Castle Douglas to Ayr road with a farm track leading directly to the farmhouse and buildings. The land is principally classified as Grade 4(1) and 4(2) by the James Hutton Institute with the fields all benefiting from a south westerly aspect. The land rises from approximately 70m to 115m above sea level at its highest point.
The peaceful location of Summerhill Farm attracts a wide variety of birds and animals. Red kites, barn and tawny owls and red squirrels are regular visitors along with a good population of roe deer. A large selection of garden birds are present with nuthatches and woodpeckers being regular visitors to the garden feeders.
