Springfield Bungalow and farmland extend to approximately 45.36 Ha (112.09 Acres). The Bunglalow is an attractive rural property of timber kit and part rendered block construction which is located centrally within the holding surrounded by an area of garden ground and open grassland. The holding benefits from a useful range of modern and traditional buildings with the traditional buildings being in need of repair. The buildings, which are situated to the south of the house may provide a development opportunity subject to the purchaser obtaining the necessary consents.
The farmland is situated in a single block and is split into several enclosures and access is given to all of the land from a network of farm tracks. The land has historically been utilised for the grazing of livestock with the farm having previously been home to a dairy herd.
The vast majority of the property comprises a combination of broadleaf 20.51Ha (50.68 Acres) and conifer 19.49 Ha (48.16 Acres) trees which were established in the early 2000s. The farmland has been classified as Grade 4.2 with a small area of Grade 5.3 by The James Hutton Institute.
