CLOSING DATE 12 NOON TUESDAY 1 SEPTEMBER 2020 - OFFERS TO BE EMAILED TO JWEDDERSPOON@SAVILLS.COM
Bewliehill is a most attractive farm lying in a peaceful position within a large bend in the Ale Water. At its heart stands a fine period house approached via a tree lined drive and surrounded by immaculately maintained gardens. The gently rolling land comprises 297.71 acres of productive farmland and 24.41 acres of mature woodland strips, which not only provide shelter and amenity but are a defining feature of the farm.
The land is currently managed under the terms of a contract farming agreement with the present farming system based around an arable rotation which has included spring barley, winter barley, oil seed rape and winter wheat. Typical yields in recent years have averaged 3.6 tonnes/acre for winter wheat, 3.0 tonnes/acre for winter barley, 2.8 tonnes/acre for spring barley and 1.3 tonnes/acre for oil seed rape. The pasture towards the western end of the farm is let on a seasonal basis.
To the rear of the farmhouse is a well maintained range of modern and traditional stone buildings which, subject to gaining the necessary consents, could offer potential for conversion to alternative uses. Both the former granary and cart shed are of a scale and architectural character which may be particularly suitable for residential use. In addition, the fields surrounding Bewlie may offer potential for two house sites subject to obtaining the relevant permissions.
The current owners have enjoyed an excellent informal shoot over the farm and a small number of pheasants have been put down in the past. The farm's natural topography, coupled with the mature woods and hedges, provide the foundation of the shoot. There are a number of roe deer on the farm which provide the opportunity for the occasional stalking excursion. For the fisherman, the gently flowing Ale Water, an upper tributary of the River Tweed, offers 1.75 miles of trout fishing.
