From Luce Mains, the River Annan

Luce Mains is an exceptional former dairy farm. The farm benefits from a traditional farmhouse, modern and traditional farm buildings (requiring repair or replacement), and about 250 acres of agricultural land. The agricultural land is down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage or hay), however the land is capable of growing a wide range of cereal and other forage crops.

Luce Mains is situated on the periphery of the lovely countryside village of Brydekirk, which lies on the outskirts of Annan (4 miles approximately). Brydekirk benefits from a primary school and local inn, with the River Annan providing popular walks and fishing. The property is well placed to access all major road links and is around 4 miles from the A74 motorway, which is ideal for those commuting North and South.

Luce Mains

LUCE MAINS FARMHOUSE
This traditional farmhouse occupies an elevated site and offers stunning picturesque open views over the surrounding countryside and the River Annan. The dwelling is traditionally stone built under a slated roof and would benefit from a degree of cosmetic modernisation. The property at present offers comfortable family accommodation over two floors.

THE FARM STEADING

The steading buildings are a mixture of modern and traditional construction and are mainly utilised for livestock overwintering and forage / general storage. These buildings would benefit from a degree of maintenance or replacement.
