Sillyearn is a delightful smallholding located in a stunning rural setting and enjoying wonderful views over Knock Hill and across Strathisla. Extending to about 3.24 ha (8 acres) or thereby in total, the farm includes a charming traditional farm house which has undergone significant refurbishment and an extension in recent years, a range of farm buildings, a mill pond, riding arena and about 2.2 ha (5.5 acres) of grazing land. Likely to date from the turn of the last century, the farmhouse is mainly constructed of stone under a slate roof whilst an extension comprising a superb dining kitchen and bedroom with en-suite facilities was added in 2022 and completed to a high specification. The accommodation is provided over one and a half storeys and on the ground floor comprises a larch clad porch with Fired Earth tiled flooring. From here, a door leads to a hallway with further doors off to the sitting room which is a very impressive room with natural sisal flooring and a wood burning stove. A door from the sitting room leads to a bright and airy dining kitchen with Fired Earth tiles and a traditional Limestone floor. It enjoys fine views over the surrounding countryside and patio doors to the sheltered patio and garden. Back in the hall, a door accesses a dual aspect family room with a wood burning stove. Completing the ground floor accommodation are a utility room and boot room with a door to the rear. On the first floor, up a separate staircase is the wonderful master bedroom, wallpapered with ‘Little Greene Paints’ and floored with larch boards, it has an en suite shower and balcony. From the second staircase, there are 2 delightful bedrooms and a family bathroom. It is double glazed and is heated using oil central heating supplemented by a wood fired stove with a back boiler. GARDEN Outside there is a lawned garden surrounding the house which includes areas of lawn, well stocked mature beds and borders, a variety of fruit trees and an area of wild garden.Farm BuildingsSitting to the rear of the house is an excellent and substantial general purpose barn part formed from the walls of the original C shaped steading with a steel portal frame. The barn measures about 25m x 17m and includes new sliding doors, box profile steel roof and side cladding, a concrete floor with wash down area, power and water supplies, fire and smoke alarms. A former mill adjoins the shed and is constructed of stone under a box profile roof. With a power supply, fire alarm and concrete floor, this building offers great scope for development (subject to planning). An additional general purpose shed / garage measuring 7m x 11m is built from block with tin side cladding and a recently added box profile steel roof with a concrete floor, power and lighting. Within this building is the necessary equipment for the private water supplied from a bore-hole on the property. LandThe land at Sillyearn Mains extends to 3.24ha / 8.0ha which are included mainly within 1 principal field. There is a timber field shelter and a useful 20m x 25m all weather riding arena, ideal for those with equestrian interests. Sillyearn Mains is not only very practical from an equestrian or smallholder basis but has high amenity appeal too with a small wooded copse to the rear of the house as well as a delightful mill pond.
