Farm Cottage (Coreholm)
A traditional built cottage in need of remedial works and complete renovation. The property is fit for habitation, but with a program of modernisation and given the stunning location, this could form the basis of a bespoke dwelling
The steading buildings are a mixture of modern and traditional construction and are mainly utilised for livestock housing and general storage. These buildings would benefit from a degree of maintenance and modernisation.
We are of the view that the traditional stone buildings could well have residential development potential given that the conversion of traditional farm buildings to residential dwellings (change of use), is consistent with Dumfries & Galloway Councils present structure and local plans. We are informed and are in possession of plans, which were drawn up some time ago, for a conversion scheme. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries in this respect.
There are contained within the curtilage of the property, two specific areas with either permission or lapsed permission for residential dwellings. One of the plots already has foundations laid in. Should any prospective purchaser wish to explore this option, we would advise them to contact the planning department at Dumfries and Galloway Council.
Castle Clanyard extends in total to about 371.81 acres (150.47 Ha), including the areas occupied by the dwelling houses, steading, yards, access roads, coastline, etc.
The holding features 29 specific field enclosures which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage), however we are aware that many of the enclosures are capable of growing cereal or other forage crops. The land is classified as predominantly yield classes 4 & 5 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The farm is self-sufficient in home grown forage and capable of any type of livestock production or cropping.
