Period farmhouse in idyllic rural setting with approximately 125 acres of land on the outskirts of Newton Mearns.
Broadlees Farm has at its heart a handsome, traditionally built farmhouse which is set in a magnificent rural position overlooking the surrounding fields with the rear boundary formed by the fairways of Eastwood golf club. The farmhouse is surrounded by carefully tended mature gardens with a wildlife pond, and close to the main house is a range of useful, general purpose buildings which were formerly used for beef cattle but could be easily converted for equine use. The land surrounding Broadlees Farm appears to be in good heart and is classified 4:1 by the James Hutton institute.
The farmhouse accommodation begins with an entrance vestibule which leads to a reception hallway with the downstairs bathroom off. An elegant drawing room overlooks the surrounding gardens, there is a formal dining room and an exceptionally spacious family room. The fitted kitchen includes a wide range of base and wall mounted units and in addition there is a utility room and an additional cloakroom / WC. The accommodation on the ground floor is completed by a further reception room in the form of the sitting room, bedroom 1 and the garden room. To the north of the farm there is an additional annexe on the ground floor which could be utilised as a self contained flat for multi generational living: the accommodation comprises sitting room, bedroom, lounge, kitchen and shower room. Off the sitting room there are doors leading to a billiard room and a multi purpose room which has been utilised in the past as a gym. There are two staircases leading to the upper floor. To the east side of the farm on the upper floor there are two bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom) and a shower room. And to the west side on the upper floor there are an additional two bedrooms and a box room.
There are a range of substantial outbuildings at Broadlees Farm presently used for agricultural purposes which would be suitable for a wide variety of alternative uses (subject to obtaining the necessary consents) and which include a large shed and byre with office accommodation. There is a triple garage to the west side of the property.
The farmland surrounding Broadlees extends to approximately 125 acres (50.18 hectares) in total, all laid to pasture and providing good grazing land in two main blocks, bisected by the River Earn. The land is of predominantly Grade 5(1) quality with some 4(1) quality adjoining the river to the northeast of the farm (according to the James Hutton Institute land classification map). The holding lies between 162 - 205 metres above sea level. The land is let out to a third party for grazing during the summer 2019 season.
