*CLOSING DATE - 23/11/2021 @ 12 NOON* First class arable farm with charming farmhouse and associated farm buildings
Nether Careston is the hub of the current farming operation at Careston. Lying to the south of the A90 the farm extends to about 424 acres in total with an attractive stone built farmhouse, modern bungalow and a range of useful farm buildings.
The Noran Water passes to the west of the farm steading and meanders through the farmland before joining the River South Esk below the water works (third party ownership) on the eastern boundary.
The farm is bounded to the south by the Upper Careston Beat (Lot 8) on the River South Esk from which water can be extracted for irrigation (subject to licence). Two internal farm tracks permit access for those wishing to fish down to the river. Nether Careston Farmhouse lies at the western end of the farm and is constructed of red stone under a slate roof.
The house enjoys a southerly open aspect and is buffered from the A90 to the north by the original steading and more modern agricultural buildings. The accommodation is well laid out for practical farm living with three good sized reception rooms on the ground floor and four bedrooms and a large bathroom on the first floor as shown on the accompanying floorplans.
There is a large enclosed well maintained garden which can be enjoyed from the kitchen window with formal lawns to the front
overlooked by the main reception rooms.
Grieve's Cottage lies in close proximity to the farm steading and thereby offers an added degree of security. The single storey bungalow is of harled timber framed construction under a slate roof and comprises the following accommodation: sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Situated to the north of the farmhouse there is an extensive
range of buildings which are mainly of steel frame construction providing cold storage for potatoes, grain and machinery as well as workshops.
The land at Nether Careston (Lot 4) lies within a single contiguous block with fields directly accessible off internal farm tracks. There are two small grass paddocks lying adjacent to two woodland compartments which have recently been felled and re-stocked. A further area of woodland occupies a steep bank on the western boundary of the farm above the River South Esk. The remaining fields are all arable.
Strictly by appointment with Savills.
Given the potential hazards of a working farm, we request you take care when viewing the property, especially around the farmyard.
