AN attractive 150-acre private residential and amenity estate near Glasgow has been brought to the market.

Little Drumquharn, which you can find at Balfron Station and adjacent to the River Endrick, occupies an enviable private position with picturesque outlooks over the surrounding countryside.

The property comprises a traditional three-bedroom farmhouse with an adjoining one-bedroom bothy, and a converted steading, now a modern three-bedroom dwelling house. There is also a range of traditional outbuildings and large modern shed – all of which is accompanied by a productive block of arable and pasture ground.

Duncan Barrie, partner at Galbraith who is handling the sale of Little Drumquharn, said: “Little Drumquharn is a delightful amenity property situated in an enviable rural position that is roughly equidistant between Glasgow and Stirling.

“There are a number of options in terms of the use of the existing residential accommodation which could provide significant additional rental income or further conversion, subject to necessary consents, to form a much larger dwelling. The property is afforded a high degree of privacy by the surrounding farmland and woodland yet still benefits from a good situation in terms of surrounding settlements and local amenities.

“The farmland provides an excellent mix of productive pasture and arable ground and is laid out within a large ring-fenced block and has good access from the internal farm road. All of the farmland is down to pasture and has been used for grazing and fodder production.

“With a range of residential, agricultural, sporting, and other land management opportunities we expect there to be substantial interest in Little Drumquharn.”

Endrick Bank Farmhouse forms the eastern elevation of the steading, is of traditional stone construction set under a slate roof and provides accommodation over two levels. The property was converted from the traditional steading to a residential dwelling in 2001.

The land at Little Drumquharn Farm extends in total to approximately 153.20 acres and has been classified as a mix of Grade 4 and Grade 3.2. There are several areas of mature broadleaved woodland which extend in total to approximately 15.81 acres and form various shelter belts and woodland areas located along the banks of the River Endrick.

The property also benefits from about 1.25 miles of single bank fishing on the River Endrick but it should be noted that there are no catch records for the last five or 10 years and Salmon Fishing Rights are specifically excluded from the subjects of sale. There are occasional roe deer on the land and the property has historically benefited from a small low ground shoot, with scope to improve the sporting dimension due to the topography of the ground.
