DESCRIPTION Wester Coldrain Farm is a productive mixed agricultural unit with agricultural land extending to 390.54 acres (158.05 hectares) or thereby with a 3 bedroom farmhouse and steading sitting adjacent. The farm benefits from excellent access both directly off the minor public roads and via a network of well-maintained farm tracks. The steading at Wester Coldrain comprises an extensive steading range suitable for both arable operations, with automatic grain elevation system, as well as livestock handling. WESTER COLDRAIN FARMHOUSE Wester Coldrain Farmhouse is a traditional farmhouse with whitewashed harling under a slated roof set within neat garden grounds that surround the property. The property benefits from a detached double garage of a concrete block construction under a flat corrugated sheet roof. The farmhouse sits at the heart of the farm and adjacent to the steading, with a well-presented wrap around garden offering a lawn area surrounded by a combination of traditional stone dyking and herbaceous borders with stunning south facing views over Kinross-shire countryside. There is a gravel parking area to the front of the property. The accommodation, over one floor, comprises: Ground Floor: three bedrooms, family bathroom, kitchen, living room and sitting room. FARM BUILDINGSWester Coldrain Farm steading consists of a range of agricultural buildings which sit directly off the minor public road which bisects the holding, from east to west. The steading is supported by a substantial earth yard area. Straw Shed (30m x 30m) A steel frame building with part Yorkshire boarding and part box profile clad walls. Internally the floor was a combination of earth and concrete. Machine Store (18m x 45m) Traditionally built stone building with part brick walling under a timber framed, fibre cement roof. Cattle Shed (20m x 25m) Steel portal framed building under a fibre cement roof with concrete block walls. The building has a concreted central feed passage with straw bedded courts on either side. Traditional Steading Range (25m x 27m) Traditional stone buildings with slate roofing and concreted floor which is currently used for general storage purposes. Fertiliser Store with Lean-to (20m x 15m) A Dutch barn with steel frame and corrugated sheet walls and roof over an earth floor. The building has an attached lean-to with timber frame under a fibre cement roof and concrete floor. Grain Shed (33m x 37m) A steel portal framed building with concrete block walls and fibre cement panelling. The shed contains an automatic grain elevation system leading to four grain bins; two of which have 80 tonne storage, the others having 50 tonne storage. The shed is accessible by steel sliding doors. THE LAND The land at Wester Coldrain sits in two neat blocks which are split by a public road. The land is divided into 20 separate enclosures with most fields being uniformly shaped and with either stockproof stone dyking or fencing. The land is classed as being predominantly Grade 3.1, with some areas of Grade 3.2, by the James Hutton Institute. This, therefore, suggests that the land can support a moderate range of cereal and forage crops with grass commonly being in the rotation. The 5-year cropping is outlined; however, a number of the pasture fields have been left in grass leys having been sown with barley or temporary grass previously. The steading sits at the highest point of the farm, located at 152 metres above sea level; the land then descends to 135 metres to the north and 133 metres to the south. There is good access throughout the farm from either public roadways or via a former railway line in the north block which has been converted to an informal roadway. METHOD OF SALE Wester Coldrain Farm is offered for sale as a whole.
