Smallholding with beautifully refurbished farmhouse and two development plots in a scenic coastal location.
Lot 1 - Changue Smallholding (Offers over £550,000)
Changue farmhouse is a substantial house which has been extensively and sympathetically renovated with a large modern fitted kitchen and dining area, spacious open plan living and dining room, utility room, five bedrooms and five bathrooms (three en suite). The farmhouse was refurbished to a very high standard during 2015 17 by the current owners providing a modern family home. To the south of the farmhouse is the low maintenance Astroturf patio which is ideal for summer dining with a strategically placed glass balustrade to ensure shelter whilst maintaining the beautiful views. A raised grass lawn is bordered by trees providing further shelter and amenity. The adjacent traditional buildings are situated to the rear of the property in an L shape formation, offering useful additional storage and a games room. Facing east, the farmhouse has views over farmland, forestry and a pond with the stunning Luce Bay on the southern horizon.
The farmland extending to about 37.56 acres (15.2 hectares) is a combination of grazing pasture, woodland and rough grazings which extend south on to the foreshore. The pasture land is ideally suited to the grazing of livestock or horses and maintains the overall privacy of the setting. Access to the land and farmhouse is via a private hard-core track which is shared with two other proprietors (with maintenance on a user basis).
To the north of the farmhouse is a further traditional steading range which benefits from detailed planning consent to create a modern two bedroom home - (available to view on Dumfries and Galloway Council's planning portal ref: 17/1921/FUL). Also within Lot 1 are a pair of modern steel portal framed buildings (about 4 years old), providing approximately 930 sq. m of flexible use under cover - (planning ref: 14/P/1/0060).
Lot 2 - Changue Bungalow Development Site (Offers over £135,000)
The original Changue Bungalow comprises a single storey, detached dwelling with two bedrooms. It sits in an elevated south facing position with panoramic views over Luce Bay (to the south) and the surrounding farmland (to the north, east and west). The bungalow is derelict but does benefit from detailed planning consent (including a Building Warrant) to demolish the property and redevelop the site with a stunning contemporary three bedroom new build property taking advantage of the breathtaking views (planning ref: 17/1504/FUL). The land running south from the bungalow to the foreshore is included with this unique development site providing flexibility and protection to the proposed development. The site extends to 5.09 acres (2.06 hectares) in total.
