Carpow Farmhouse and farmland extend to approximately 44.53 Ha (110.03 Acres) and are located in an accessible location just to the east of Abernethy, close to the border between Perthshire and Fife. The farmhouse is an attractive stone-built house located to the south of the holding within a private enclosed garden which has been well tended. The holding benefits from a traditional building situated adjacent to the house which could provide an excellent development opportunity subject to the necessary planning consent.
The farmland is situated in a single block and is split into several enclosures and access is given to all of the fields from a network of farm tracks or directly from the A913 public road. The land is utilised for arable production with the pasture used for grazing. There are several areas of mixed broadleaved woodland which provide shelter and amenity. The farmland has been classified as Grade 2 with a small area of Grade 3.2 by The James Hutton Institute.
