A beautifully situated small residential farm or lifestyle property


The sale of Snitter Lane Farm presents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully situated compact residential farm in an unspoilt yet accessible location. For buyers seeking a “lifestyle” property, Snitter lane Farm offers enormous potential due to the mix of productive farmland, well established woodland and the delightful private wooded valley through which Back Burn flows.
The attractive stone built four bedroom farmhouse lies within lovely south facing gardens with views over the ha-ha to the hills. The internal accommodation extends to almost 2,500 sqft but there is potential to extend the accommodation into the adjacent stone garage and stores if required.
The land is naturally divided by council roads and is offered for sale as a whole or in three lots providing maximum flexibility to buyers. Part of the farm is within an Environmental Stewardship Scheme and is therefore well placed for taking advantage of the ELMS when introduced or even for additional woodland planting.

The house which is of attractive local stone construction under a slate roof provides four bedroom family accommodation now in need of some modernisation and updating. The accommodation which is shown on the floorplan largely has a southerly aspect and includes:
Ground floor: Front entrance Hall with cloakroom off. Sitting room with open fire, built-in storage cupboards and main staircase off. Living room with open fireplace and door to garden. Dining room with feature bay window and window seat. Kitchen with two door Aga and range of modern fitted floor and wall units together with a stainless steel sink unit.

Bedroom two is a single bedroom opposite which is double Bedroom three. There is a house Shower room and double Bedroom four off which is a further en-suite bathroom.

Outbuildings - The stone built garage and two adjoining stores can be accessed from the boot room and with a ground floor area of 807 sqft, offer potential, subject to planning, to extend the accommodation, or to provide a holiday cottage or offices.
