North Port of Spittal is situated about 3 miles from the picturesque coastal village of Portpatrick, within the stunning South Rhins Peninsular of Dumfries & Galloway. The property lies in an unspoilt rural location, yet within easy reach of major commuting links.

North Port of Spittal dwellinghouse having been uninhabited for some time, therefore requiring full refurbishment and modernisation, however, has huge potential for creating a beautiful family home. The property also benefits from a mostly traditional farm steading, this may also offer development potential, given that the conversion of traditional farm buildings to residential dwellings (change of use), is consistent with the Dumfries & Galloway Council’s present structure and local plans. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries in this respect.

The land at North Port of Spittal amounts to about 127.94 acres (51.78 hectares). The agricultural land is at present down to grass for grazing and is currently let on a seasonal grazing basis to neighbouring farmers.

This agricultural / lifestyle property offers the successful purchaser to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty and to develop the farm to either accommodate agricultural / equestrian or indeed any other tourist based enterprise and given the diversity of the vernacular buildings, there may exist the opportunity develop further residential accommodation, subject to the normal planning regulations.

The traditional steading at North Port of Spittal would benefit from a program of maintenance and repair, however parts are still utilised for the storage of small machinery, etc. with a more modern portal agricultural building utilised for cattle housing.

There is a good range of vernacular buildings and as stated earlier 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 lands of North Port of Spittal extend in total to about 127.94 acres (51.78 hectares), to exclude the areas occupied by the farmhouse, steading, access roads, etc. The land lies within a ring fence and is classified as LFASS and is suitable for agricultural / equestrian and sporting purposes. It is noted that the agricultural land is registered with the Agricultural Food & Rural Communities – Rural Payments & Inspections Division, with a main location code of 867/0109.
