Upper Barr Farm is situated just on the outskirts of the pretty village of Corsock within the Stewartry area of Dumfries & Galloway. The property occupies an elevated site and is surrounded by open countryside. Upper Barr lies approximately 11 miles from the picturesque market town of Castle Douglas.

Upper Barr farmhouse has been modernised to an extremely high standard in most parts with attention to detail having been paid to the decor, a new bespoke kitchen having just been fitted. The modernisation of the property has been very sympathetic to this traditional farmhouse and offers cosy, but spacious family living accommodation with further development potential.

Upper Barr benefits from a range of modern and traditional farm buildings and about 525 acres of agricultural land. The agricultural land is down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage or hay) and the farm is self-sufficient in home grown forage.

REDUNDANT FARM COTTAGE
To the west of the farmhouse is a further redundant cottage, which is of stone built construction under a slated roof. The opportunity may exist for the potential purchaser to redevelop this into a secondary dwelling.

THE FARM STEADING
The farm steading at Upper Barr is a mixture of modern and traditional buildings, which briefly comprise of three specific steel portal sheds with box profile cladding, Yorkshire boarding, feed barriers, etc. These three sheds, have in the past, had the capacity to overwinter the beef herd and facilitate lambing season. The more traditional buildings are of stone and slate construction and along with two former Dutch barns, provide more than adequate general storage. The Aerial photographs depicting the steading are current and a true reflection of the condition of the steading.

THE LAND
Upper Barr extends in total to about 532.5 acres(215.50 Ha), including the areas occupied by the house, steading, yards, access roads, woodland, etc. The holding features 32 specific field enclosures which are currently all down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage). The land ranges from mowing land through to upland grazing and is classified as predominantly yield classes 4 & 5 of the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research (Land Capability Study), as produced by the James Hutton Institute. The farm is self-sufficient in home grown forage and capable of any type of livestock production. The land is favoured with good access from the sealed adopted road. There is, contained within the acreage, some semi-commercial planting. This has been arranged in a sympathetic manner and provides shelter on the in-bye land.

BASIC PAYMENT ENTITLEMENTS – IACS / SAF
The agricultural land has been allocated payment regions 1 & 2 and is classified as LFASS. We are advised that the vendors are active farmers (as currently defined under EU Regulation 1307/2013 and the Scottish Statutory Instrument 2014/58). We are further informed that the sellers completed an IACS/SAF submission 2019 (a copy of which can be made available for inspection from the sole selling agents during normal office hours).

Upper Barr benefits from 114.94 units of region 1 & 86.17 units of region 2 entitlements. The sellers will use their best endeavours to complete the necessary documentation to transfer any and all established Basic Payment Entitlements. For the avoidance of doubt any such payments already applied for prior to the completion date, will be retained by the sellers, i.e., the 2021 Basic Payment, 2021 greening payment & LFASS. The purchaser upon occupation of the subjects of sale will be required and be responsible to comply with the statutory management requirements and
good agricultural and environmental conditions, as laid down within the cross compliance documentation 2021, this obligation expires on 31st December 2021.
