Farmland and woodland at Hencar, within the scenic Deveron Valley.
Hencar is an outstanding property, situated in the Deveron Valley, close to the river and to Milltown of Rothiemay. Formerly a let farm on the local estate it was acquired by the seller's family in the early 1990s. An enviable site, enclosed by mature trees, supplemented by more recent plantings, the property enjoys plenty of privacy. In 1993 a new house was built, along with a guest cottage and a gallery / studio. The land around the house has been maintained as amenity ground, with more outlying fields being cut for hay. The location, quality of the house, and the extent of the land, make this a very special property. The guest cottage and studio also allow for flexibility either as additional accommodation or for staff. Hencar is perfect for entertaining, or can be used as a retreat, an exclusive holiday home, or for modern family living.
Lot 2 Land at Burnfield About 30.52 acres (12.35 ha)
Extending to a little over 31 acres, it comprises 18 acres of mixed woodland. Much of the conifer component has been felled with some wind-blow damage to the peripheral areas, and it is anticipated that there may be a requirement to re-stock the felled area.
Southeast of the woodland is an area of open pasture land which could have been used for cutting hay in recent times, but which has a variety of uses including as agricultural land, further woodland creation or for amenity purposes. The land sits at an altitude of between 85 and 130 metres above sea level.
Planning consent was previously granted for a dwelling house in 1995. A letter from the council in 2000 confirmed that works had commenced and that the planning permission (Ref 95/01505/01) remains extant.
Lot 3 Land at Hencar About 28.98 acres (11.73 ha)
The land extends to nearly 29 acres of grassland adjacent to the River Deveron, split in two enclosures. The soils are Noncalcareous Gleys of the Tarves series and the farmland is classified by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research as predominantly Class 3.2 and sits between 80m and 85m above sea level. The fields are generally flat owing to the alluvial location, and accessible from the public single track road.
Lot 1 Hencar About 45.22 acres (18.30 ha)
Separately available is a stunning home, along with a cottage, studio, garaging and grounds with ponds and a paddock.
" The location, the quality of the house and the extent of the land, together make this a very special property. There is endless versatility in terms of how Hencar is used whether that be as a permanent home, country retreat or as a holiday let business, with the Deveron almost on the doorstep providing the loveliest of backdrops."Ruaraidh Ogilvie
