Lochwood Farmhouse lies centrally within the holding and is approached via a private drive which leads from the public road to a courtyard steading situated to the rear of the house. An original Victorian farmhouse of traditional stone construction under a slate roof with many original features including open fires and decorative cornicing. The property provides well proportioned family accommodation over two levels including entrance vestibule, entrance hallway, lounge, dining room, living room, morning room, kitchen, five bedrooms and bathroom. The accommodation is laid out in more detail within the floorplans annexed to this brochure.
There is an area of garden ground to the front of the house which is mostly laid to lawn and enclosed by a stone wall and wrought iron fence.
The holding benefits from a range of traditional farm buildings which are situated in a group, set in a courtyard, and lie adjacent to the farmhouse. The traditional steading currently benefits from detailed planning for conversion to six residential units ranging from two to four bedroom homes maintaining the existing traditional courtyard setting.
The buildings although largely redundant from an agricultural point of view do present the opportunity for conversion to either residential use as the existing planing consent allows, or for a variety of business and equestrian uses subject to obtaining necessary consents. The buildings have also historically been used for the location of films and children’s TV programmes. The farm buildings comprise:
Former Byre: of stone construction under a corrugated tin roof, stone walls and a concrete floor.
Store Shed 1: of stone construction under a corrugated tin roof, stone walls and a concrete floor.
Workshop: of stone construction under a corrugated tin roof, stone walls and a concrete floor.
Store Shed 2: adjoining the farmhouse of stone construction under a slate roof, stone walls and a concrete floor.
Pole Barn: of steel portal frame construction under a felt roof with an earth floor.
Granary/Stores: of stone construction under a corrugated roof, stone walls and a concrete floor.
Barn/Tractor Shed: of stone construction under a corrugated roof, stone walls and a concrete/earth floor.
Traditional Barn/Stable: there is a traditional barn of stone construction located opposite the courtyard which is intact to wall head level but part of the slate roof has collapsed.
Dutch Barn: situated to the north of the courtyard and of steel portal frame construction under a tin roof with an earth floor.
Former Steading Range: situated to the east of the courtyard there is the footprint of the remainder of the traditional steading which is intact to wall head level with a stone floor.
Planning Permission (Ref: 07/03479/DC)
The traditional farm buildings benefit from planning permission for the conversion and alteration of former farm buildings to form six residential units and including the formation of new vehicular access and parking. The permission was granted in November 2011. Further details are available via the Glasgow City Council Planning Department www.glasgow.gov.uk quoting the above reference number.
The land in Lot 1 extends to approximately 5.15 Ha (12.72 Acres) in total and is split between 12.21 acres of permanent pasture with about 0.51 acres of woodland providing amenity and shelter. The land is classified as being principally Grade 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute and is gently sloping with a northerly aspect and is situated between approximately 79m and 90m above sea level. The northerly part of this lot has been identified as an area of archaeological interest with the Bishop’s Palace dating back to around the 13th Century.
