DESCRIPTION
The farm comprises a detached traditional farmhouse, an extensive range of farm buildings and predominantly high quality farm land extending to about 37.97 ha (93.8 acres).

Farmhouse
Likely to date from the late 1800s, Allarburn Farmhouse is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof and provides well-appointed accommodation over two storeys. Originally built as a smaller dwelling and extended over the years, the accommodation on the ground floor comprises a vestibule, entrance hall, rear hall / utility room, living room. boiler room / office. kitchen. study area and bathroom. The first floor comprises 4 good sized bedrooms. Although in need of a degree of modernisation, the house has many of the features one would expect in a property of this age. It is heated using oil central heating and is double glazed. Electrics are connected to the mains supply with foul drainage to a private facility. The farm is served by a private water supply from an on-farm bore-hole. Mains water is located nearby.
A small garden surrounds the house whilst parking is available in the yard to the side and rear. Adjoining the house is an annexe which is accessed separately from the yard to the rear of the house and which was originally used as offices for the farm business. It has not been used in some time, however, it does offer further scope for development.
Farm Buildings

Located to the north
of the farmhouse is an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings which over the years have been used for a wide range of purposes including dairy, poultry, cattle, sheep and arable operations. These include the original stone and slate built steading which comprises a range of stores and workshops, four separate cattle courts, Dutch barns, general purpose sheds, covered silage clamps, bull pens and six former hen houses. The extent of the buildings is greater than one would ordinarily expect of a holding of this size, however, given the close proximity to Elgin, these will undoubtedly have wider appeal.

Land
Sitting at an elevation of about 30m above sea level, the farm is essentially flat lying and is bounded by the Black Burn and River Lossie. The railway line linking Aberdeen and Inverness dissects the farm but crossing is relatively straightforward. At present, the farm is essentially all down to grass or fodder crops and is essentially ranched with sheep and cattle. However, being classified as grade 2 and 3(2) by the James Hutton Institute - Land capability for Agriculture, the land is predominantly of good quality and mainly capable of arable cropping. Boundary fencing appears to be in good condition.
