Trostrie Farm is conveniently located within the Stewartry area of Dumfries and Galloway, not far from Twynholm Village and only a short drive to the main A75 trunk road. Trostrie lies approximately 8 miles west of Castle Douglas and about 6 miles north of Kirkcudbright in an attractive rural location, yet well within easy reach of major commuting links.
Trostrie is a highly productive residential stock rearing farm with benefitting from an extremely well-presented and modernised farmhouse with views over open countryside. Trostrie Farmhouse benefits from bright and airy living accommodation set over two floors, offering all the comforts of modern-day family living.
Trostrie Farm benefits from both a traditional and modern farm steading with some of the traditional buildings having development potential. The modern buildings have been constructed and laid out in such a manner that cattle handling and all day-to-day tasks can be carried out by one person. The inclusion of these buildings, coupled with the productive grazing and mowing land, make Trostrie a desirable commercially viable unit.
Trostrie farmhouse is a traditionally built one and a half storey Stewartry farmhouse. The property has been very well-maintained and is in walk-in condition.
THE FARM STEADING
Trostrie benefits from a well-maintained farm steading, which incorporates both traditional and modern farm buildings. The steading is in two separate locations, both accessed from the adopted public road. The steading is more than adequate for the farming practices and comfortably houses the beef herd with good storage facilities. We have included within the sales particulars two numbered plans which should be cross-referenced with the steading details.
The lands of Trostrie are contained within a ring fence, split only by the minor public road. The land extends in total to about 349.7 acres (141.52 hectares) to include the areas occupied by the farmhouse, steadings, roads, woodland, lochans, etc.
The agricultural land is contained within 31 good sized field enclosures. The agricultural land is classified as being mainly within yield classes 4 & 5 of the Macaulay Scale, as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The land has been allocated both region 1 & region 2 and ranges from good mowable land to an area of upland grazing. The land is classified as LFASS and is registered with the Agricultural Food & Rural Communities – Rural Payments & Inspections Division, with a main location code of: 517/0036.
The farm is self-sufficient in home-grown forage with areas suitable for cropping. Of the total area 136.6 hectares is registered for agricultural production.
