Kilquhockadale Farm is situated in a rural yet easily accessible location about 10 miles west of Newton Stewart within Dumfries & Galloway.
The property offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a small productive upland farm, located in a quiet yet accessible area of outstanding natural beauty. As well as small agricultural usage, the property offers enormous potential for equestrian or any sporting / tourist based enterprise. The property at present is utilised as a mixed livestock farm, although there is potential for woodland expansion.
The agricultural land of Kilquhockadale extends in total to about 288.59 acres (116.79 ha) and is currently utilised for livestock farming with sufficient areas within the property capable of growing winter forage.
Occupying an elevated site and offering open views, this modernised traditionally built farmhouse is deceptively spacious and provides comfortable family accommodation over two floors.
THE FARM STEADING
To the south of the farmhouse is a range of traditional vernacular farm buildings, which comprise of a mixture of barns, byres and stables. These exceptionally rare stone-built structures would lend themselves to a variety of uses. The farm buildings are currently utilised for storage and some cattle livestock housing.
We are of the view that these 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. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries in this respect.
THE AGRICULTURAL LAND
Kilquhockadale Farm extends in total to about 288.59 acres (116.79 Ha) including the areas occupied by the farmhouse, steading, roads, etc. The holding features 13 specific, well fenced field enclosures which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation. The land lies within a Less Favoured Area and is classified as predominantly yield class 5 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study) as produced by the James Hutton Institute.
