Broughdearg is an attractive smallholding situated overlooking the River Shee with a beautiful outlook onto Meall Odhar, Meall Uaine and south along the glen floor. The farmhouse, which has planning in place for development into a comfortable and spacious 4 bedroom property, has a grass paddock adjacent and is complemented by a mixture of modern and traditional outbuildings. A small pine wood sits behind the buildings, adding to the overall character of the property.
Access is taken directly off the Old Military Road and over the River Shee via a traditional wooden bridge, with a stone track leading up to Broughdearg.
Broughdearg is a 2 storey, traditional stone farmhouse which has undergone renovation work in the last few years. The property sits under a new tiled and slate roof and has been extended to the rear. Plans have been approved by Perthshire planning authority to form a 4 bedroom, 4 en-suite property with open plan kitchen/ dining/ living area and conservatory to the front where the views can be enjoyed (Ref: 13/01446/FLL). The plans allow a purchaser to create a desirable permanent or second home and, due to the presence of en-suite bathrooms, the property would be well-equipped to accommodate holidaymakers taking advantage of all that Glenshee has to offer.
The renovations of the farmhouse have commenced with most of the external work complete other than windows, stone facing to the extension and some rainwater goods to be finished. The farmhouse requires a complete internal fit out, including stud partitions, plumbing, wiring and finishings. Other than the stud partitions and stairs, the majority of the internal construction work has been completed.
A garden, bounded by a traditional stone dyke, extends to the front of the property which is currently laid to grass.
The outbuildings are found to the rear of Broughdearg Farmhouse and comprise a mixture of modern and traditionally constructed buildings.
Directly behind the farmhouse is a small courtyard comprising a steel portal frame livestock shed with a raised central feed passage and earth floor. A small stone building with a tin roof sits adjacent. Opposite is a barn of traditional stone construction with water and electricity provisions. To the south-east of the court yard is a hay shed of steel portal frame construction which is open on the western side. To the front is a large grassed area.
Grazing and Woodland
A small paddock extending to 1.23ha (3.04ac) sits between the farmhouse and the access road to Broughdearg. The field is laid to pasture and is bound by a dyke and fencing. A native pine wood sits within an area of about 0.96ha (2.37ac) lying to the rear of the agricultural buildings and is predominantly made-up of scattered Scots Pine along with erratic rocks and open grassy areas.
At the entrance to the pine wood are two megalithic stones from the bronze era which have been preserved as part of the heritage of Broughdearg. A former lime kiln is also found close to the hay shed.
No part of the access track, including that which dissects the property, is owned by the Vendors, however there is a nonexclusive servitude right of access along the track and bridge. There are shared maintenance obligations for the access track.
