Ayrshire hill farm with a spacious 4 bedroom house (requiring renovation), in an upland rural setting near to the Galloway Forest Park
Corwar Farmhouse sits centrally on the holding with a south westerly aspect over the surrounding farmland and forestry. The house is predominantly of stone and slate construction with accommodation over two floors as shown on the accompanying floorplans.
The farmhouse benefits from principally UPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating, private water supply (via a shared borehole and UV filtration system) and drainage to a septic tank.
The property has not been occupied for some years and consequently the services cannot be guaranteed to be in full working order. The house will require extensive refurbishment to restore it to a family home.
There is a traditional range of farm buildings adjoining the farmhouse, providing useful garaging and storage space, with further potential for development to alternative uses subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
In addition to the traditional range, there is an Atcost Shed of concrete frame construction with asbestos cement cladding and roof.
The land sits in a ring fenced block accessible via a private (shared) access road from the B7027 past Laigh Drumlamford farm. The land varies between grades 4-6 quality according to the James Hutton Institute land classification map. The holding lies between 150 170 metres above sea level and has most recently been let for sheep and cattle grazing.
Basic Payment Scheme
Whilst the land is eligible for BPS payments there are no BPS Entitlements available.
The sporting rights on the south western portion of land (as hatched on the sale plan) are let to a third party for 50 years from 1st April 1990. This extends to exclusive rights of shooting and sporting over the hatched area. The lease is available to view from the selling agents.

Corwar farm has the flexibility to appeal to farming, lifestyle and forestry purchasers due to the upland location towards the edge of the Galloway Forest Park but still within striking distance of local amenities. The farmhouse requires extensive renovations but the opportunity to create a bespoke family home in a secluded and picturesque location is most appealing.Kay Paton
