The accommodation lies over two floors and comprises:

Ground Floor:- Vestibule, Hall, Dining Kitchen, Sitting Room, Utility Room, Office/Bedroom 4, Cloakroom
First Floor:- 3 Bedrooms, Family Bathroom

Meadows Farmhouse sits within an enclosed garden with a parking area to the south with a lawned garden to the north and patio seating areas. Lying immediately to the west of the farmhouse is a open-fronted mono-pitched outbuilding of timber framed construction under a box profile roof providing useful storage and garaging.

To the north of the farmhouse and adjacent to the garden is a paddock, down to grass and enclosed with a stock-proof fence. It extends to about 2 acres (0.80 ha).

LOT 2 - Meadows Farm and Farm Buildings

Lot 2 extends to about 104.06 acres (42.11 ha). It comprises the majority of the low ground, which is down to permanent pasture, with the farm buildings comprising two livestock sheds and a general purpose shed.

The farm buildings at Meadows Farm lie to the north-east of the farmhouse and can be accessed either by an internal farm track (under construction) leading from the house or alternatively from the minor public road via a farm track to the
east of the farmhouse.

The farm buildings comprise:

Livestock Shed 1
Open fronted steel portal frame construction with concrete panelled walls, Yorkshire boarding, cement fibre roof, hardcored floor and concrete feed apron. It was constructed in
2015.

Livestock Shed 2
Open fronted portal frame construction with Yorkshire boarding and box profile roof.

General Purpose Shed
Open span steel portal frame shed with corrugated cladding, concrete floor and roller shutter door.

The Land
The land forming Lot 2 extends to approximately 104.06 acres (42.11 ha), is classified as Grade 4 and 5 by the James Hutton Institute and principally down to permanent pasture. The fields lie principally to the north and west of the farmhouse, divided into 11 enclosures and predominantly level with some parts gently sloping. They provide good grazing and fodder.
Average annual rainfall for the region is between 46” to 79” (117 cm to 201 cm).

LOT 3 – ROUGH GRAZING/HILL GROUND

The Land
The land forming Lot 3 extends to approximately 181.12 acres (73.3 ha) rough grazing / hill ground and is classified as Grade 5 by the James Hutton Institute. It lies immediately to the south of the minor public road and provides predominantly rough grazing with some woodland areas. Lot 3 rises from approximately 130m to 300m above sea level at its highest point.

The hill is north-facing and provides a mixture of reasonable hill grazings, rough grazings, heather and rushes with some excellent areas for out-wintering cattle. There is also a wooded glen with burn running through and comprising a mix of both deciduous and coniferous trees with gorse scrub. Part of the hill is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and we understand a Management Plan is in place over this part of the hill ground with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH).
