Duncan Barrie, head of farm sales for Galbraith, said: “This represents a very significant development opportunity and there are a number of ways in which development may be taken forward.

“The existing planning permissions are a very useful starting point for an individual or partnership with the foresight to create an exciting new residential or commercial development.

“The sale as a whole or in lots offers the flexibility for a variety of uses of the land and buildings. Much of the land is pasture, graded 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute, with some amenity woodland.

“In addition, there is a productive area of pasture and arable land which could have sporting potential.

“There are a number of farm buildings adjacent to the farmhouse laid out around a central courtyard, which may be converted, either for residential use as the current planning consent allows, or for a variety of business or equestrian uses, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

“The original Victorian farmhouse retains many original features and could be modernized to create a lovely home in an accessible location.”
