A compact amenity and grassland farm with an outstanding outlook towards the Solway Coast
Gallhills Farm originally comprised part of the Springkell Estate and features a charming sandstone farmhouse typical of the estate style, with an adjoining range of traditional outbuildings. It is a compact livestock holding situated at about 135 metres above sea level, with outstanding views across the surrounding countryside and towards the Solway Firth. Gallhills is a versatile property which will appeal equally to the farming, equestrian and lifestyle markets.
Farmhouse and Steading - Gallhills Farmhouse sits centrally within the land holding and is attached to a range of traditional outbuildings formed around a central courtyard which is utilised for parking. Dating from 1897, the farmhouse has a pleasant sandstone facade with a date stone set above the front door, and benefits from a south eastern aspect with unrivalled view across the surrounding countryside towards the Solway Firth. The accommodation is presented over two floors, and would benefit from modernisation. A doorway from the courtyard opens into a small hall off which the kitchen, shower room and living room are located. A second hallway (also accessed via the front door) accesses the downstairs bedroom and stairwell. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms. Whilst of a modest size (approximately 114 sq m floor area), the footprint of the house could be extended into the range of traditional buildings adjoining to increase the accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The traditional steading is useful for garaging, storage and stabling, whilst a more modern portal framed building (25m x 14.6m) providing straw bedded courts with a central feed passage is slightly off lying from the courtyard.
Farmland - Gallhills comprises a good quality grassland holding sitting within a ring fenced block accessible via a private track leading from the public road on the north eastern boundary. All fields can be accessed internally. The land extends to approximately 131.24 acres (53.11 hectares) and is almost entirely Class 4 according to the James Hutton Institute Land Capability for Agriculture map and has traditionally been used or grazing and mowing purposes. A high voltage power line crosses the holding, with two towers located on the land. A high pressure gas pipeline and a Scottish Water main also pass through the farm. The land is registered for Basic Payment but no entitlements are held by the sellers.
