LOT 1: DEVONSIDE FARMHOUSE, FARM BUILDINGS AND FARMLAND EXTENDING TO ABOUT 21.05 HA (52.01 ACRES)

Devonside Farmhouse
Devonside Farmhouse is located to the south of the farm buildings in a private position with southerly views overlooking the picturesque surrounding
rolling countryside and the Black Devon River to the south. The farmhouse is approached via a private tree lined farm drive which is separate from the
main farm and leads from the minor public road culminating in a gravel sweep which surrounds the house.

The house has been afforded B-Listed status by Historic Environment Scotland and is of traditional stone construction set under a pitched slate roof and provides well-proportioned accommodation over three levels with a number of traditional features throughout. The property currently provides spacious living accommodation on the ground floor, with 5 spacious bedrooms on the first floor and mid-floors, and a further 3 rooms on the third floor which could easily be converted to further bedroom
accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. The accommodation and room dimensions are set out in more detail in the floorplans contained within these particulars.

Garden Ground
There is an attractive garden area located to the front and east of the property which is mostly laid to lawn with various shrubs and flower beds on the edge of the lawn providing an abundance of colour. There are a number of mature tress which provide shelter from the elements and a significant level of privacy. The gravel sweep which surrounds the farmhouse provides ample space for parking a number of vehicles, and the garden area is equipped with two useful store sheds and a lean-to.

Farm Buildings
The farm buildings are situated in a group and lie immediately to the north of the farmhouse and to the south of the public road.

Courtyard
There is a range of courtyard buildings which have been afforded C-listed status by Historic Environment Scotland. These are of stone construction set under a mix of slate, tin and corrugated roofing. The buildings comprise a number of stores and although largely redundant for agricultural purposes they may present the opportunity for development for alternative use
subject to obtaining necessary planning and listed buildings consents.

Farmland Lot 1 About 21.05 Ha (52.01 Acres)
The farmland in Lot 1 extends to approximately 21.05 Ha (52.01 Acres) in total and surrounds the farmhouse and steading and is situated within a ring fence. The land has all been classified as Grade 3.2 by The James Hutton Institute. All of the land is currently down to pasture and is used for grazing and forage production with a small area of amenity woodland to the west. The land is gently sloping in aspect sitting between approximately 58m above sea level at its lowest point and 107m above sea
level at its highest point. The enclosures benefit from excellent access either directly from the public roads or the farm steading via an internal farm road which leads south to the land to the south of the Black Devon River.
