AN expansive, ring fenced livestock and arable farm with well-maintained steading and attractive four-bedroom farmhouse has just come to market near Dalrymple in South Ayrshire.

New to market, Netherton Farm is already attracting interest from potential buyers registered with Davidson and Robertson. Will Dalrymple, Associate at DaR said: “ It will appeal to a those looking to upsize or expand as well as farmers from Northern Ireland or south of the border looking for great value for money. The lack of supply in the last year, coupled with growing demand for quality farms, makes this farm a very attractive proposition.”

The farm extends to 399.44 acres (161.65 ha) or thereby lying between 65 – 120m above sea level. It is ring fenced – albeit split into two blocks by a road. It has large field enclosures and is mainly laid to grass with some barley and potential for more to be grown.

The substantial farmhouse is attractive with large kitchen/diner, dining room and two reception rooms. Upstairs are four bedrooms, family bathroom and office. There is a mature enclosed garden and a vegetable garden.

According to the James Hutton Institute’s Land Capability for Agriculture Classification, the land ranges from Class 3.1 to 4.2. It is predominantly laid to grass with some barley grown. The vast majority is suitable for mowing and cropping.

Except for 2 water meters servicing 5 water troughs from the mains supply, all other water is provided by natural springs and water courses.

Netherton lies wholly within a Less Favoured Area and therefore qualifies for LFASS payment. The Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) Entitlements are included in the sale.
