The house at Kirkmabreck has been a wonderful family home for many years, which has been sympathetically modernised and maintained to a really high standard. The house benefits from a spectacular elevated site with far reaching views across Wigtown Bay and beyond. The house offers spacious, beautifully presented family accommodation over two floors. Kirkmabreck Farmhouse benefits from its own dedicated access, which isolates it from the working farm offering a degree of privacy. A tarmac driveway gives access to parking and a detached double garage. Well maintained garden grounds offer dedicated areas for alfresco dining and family or social entertaining.
The farm cottage at Kirkmabreck is in excellent order and at present is occupied on a short-assured tenancy, although vacant possession can be given at the time of completion.
Kirkmabreck is a highly productive livestock & stock rearing unit. The land is classified as mainly yield classes 4 & 5 of the Macaulay Land Capability Scale as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The land is fertile, well drained and fenced and benefits from a modern agricultural steading. The farm is well laid out with access tracks and shelter belts, which give a degree of sporting potential. The farm benefits from a farm woodland grant scheme covering 62.91 hectares of conifers & 18.59 hectares of broadleaves. The management payments continue until 2025 and provide a useful income stream. It should be noted that the farm road is within the local authority council control and maintained by them.
